Driveway Cracks

Hey all,

I have some problems with cracking and shifting w/ my driveway. There are a couple areas that just have cracks which I assume driveway crack filler will work ok on those. My main concern is there are two spots where the ground has settleled weird and there is a big crack and then a drop off kind of like -l_ I am wondering if there is a good way to repair this? Really don't want to have to repair the whole driveway!

Aside from tearing out and replacing it, the only way to repair sunken concrete is by slabjacking (sometimes called mudjacking). A company comes out, drills holes in your slab, then pumps a lime slurry under the slab which fills the voids and lifts the concrete up to its original level. It is pretty effective. Look in the Yellow Pages under Concrete Contractors. Good luck.
