Question
Good day
With reference to concrete repairs do you provide, know of or can recommend any solution for the following issue. Came across your website during a search for concrete straightening.
A curb (to define a road) was built along a 100 meter road as a DIY project. After it was completed two major issues was realized
1. the curb was built bend along the 100 meter span of the road- off by 1 foot at most and less than a foot in some places. Is there any way that one can straighten or repair a curb built bend
2. Curb was build along a sloping surface. After it was built it was realized that the curb heights were off by 10" maximum and less in most areas. Thus after the road was sanded   road, the curb projection was higher and lower in different places by a maximum of 10" and about 4" to 5" in most places. Still have to 8" aggregate to add to road and asphalt.
At this point is there anything anyone can do to make the discrepancies in height of curb sticking up look uniform
