My uncle has a garage where the slab inside the garage to the outside is uneven. The difference is probably 2 inches. They use the garage to park two cars in and drive in and out several times a day.

My question is, could we use some form of cement to build a ramp to prevent trips and such? Would this just crumble when yo drive over it? The slabs are not broken anywhere. They just sunk.

We live in Michigan so are cold winters a problem?

I've read about mudjacking and all that and I'm sure he's not interested in anything too expensive.

There are portland cement based floor leveling compounds and epoxy based cement patching products which can be troweled quite thin and do well for something like this.

Ther area should be cleaned first with a weak acid solution, dried, and then coated with a concrete bonding agent. Then the leveling or patching compound mixed and placed the same day.

Excellence is its own reward!
