    Portage, MI Driveway is Corrected

    A customer from Portage came to us with a driveway that was no longer level. They needed help so they called us. We drove over to their house and installed our PolyLevel technology. PolyLevel is an advanced polymer injection foam that we blast into the water though little holes in order to make it level and stronger than ever before. PolyLevel worked to raise and level out the concrete slabs while dealing with the weak soils below that were no longer able to hold the weight of the home above. We drilled multiple small holes into the concrete slabs in order to inject them with a polymer material that expanded to lift and level out the concrete. Once injected, the system only needed about 15 minutes to fully cure and the slabs were then stabilized and lifted to their proper level, and stronger than ever before. Now, this homeowner will not have to worry about this ever again.

    New Crawl Space Entry Door in Fennville, MI

    John D. contacted us because he had a nasty crawl space problem. There was water leaking under his home and due to the moisture some of the wood began to rot. We installed CleanSpace, drainage matting, and our SuperSump to combat the standing water in his crawl space, but that would not be enough. His crawl space entry door would only ensure the problem happened again. His previous door was not only unsafe for his family, because anyone could fall in, but it was letting in a lot of that moisture he complained about. His new crawl space entry is now safe and secure. It has an easy open door,  locks smoothly into place, and fits snug to make sure any moisture and outside air stays outside.

    Proper Crawl Space Door Installed in Fennville, MI

    Your crawl space access door should always seal super tight. A lof of times crawl space doors are made of plywood which rots easily and ends up looking awful, and not sealing off your crawl space like it should. The answer to solve this is an all plastic door that can't rot, it won't warp or need paint and bugs won't eat it. The knobs screw into the anchors pulling the door tight against weather stripping to seal off outside air.

    Sinking Driveway Fixed in La Porte, Indiana

    Is your driveway cracked and starting to sink in spots? Don't worry this is common for many homeowners, and we have the perfect solution. You might as well get the problem fixed before someone trips, or you decide to sell your home and it decreases the resale value and lets be real, the problem can and will continue to get worse.

    To fix sinking concrete we have a great PolyLevel system that can lift your concrete slab back to its original/desired height. PolyLevel is a lot less invasive than mudjacking or even pouring new concrete. Small holes are drilled in the concrete to inject the structural grade polymers, but don't worry the holes are virtually unnoticeable once complete. The material that we inject is also waterproof so there is no chance of it washing out beneath the slab. The best part though is that the cure time is only about 15 minutes, so you can go back to driving, parking, and working on your cement in almost no time.

    Foundation Walls Stabilized in Muskegon, MI Home

    We received a call from an individual looking to buy this Muskegon home. Despite their interest, they had one major concern; there was a crack in the cement block foundation, and the wall was beginning to bow. Luckily, they won't have to look elsewhere due to this concern, because we have just the right foundation repair solutions for situations like these.

    The PowerBrace Wall Repair System is the ideal way to stabilize failing foundation walls. Installing our PowerBrace system to walls that are either bowing, buckings, or tilting inwards can halt any further movement and could even potentially straighten the wall back to its original position. The PowerBrace consists of steel I-beams that are secured to the joists above the wall with steel brackets. In the event that the PowerBrace needs to be tightened, the system can be adjusted with ease.

    Also, this system doesn't involve any exterior excavation and has a very fast installation time with minimal disruption to your basement. So whether you are house-hunting or getting your own house together, our PowerBrace system is perfect if you need foundation walls to be stabilized.

    Don't let uneven sidewalks leave you feeling stressed out. With new technology we can fix those uneven sidewalks or cement slabs easier than ever before. We inject structural grade polymers beneath the cement which will lift the slab back to its desired height. The polymers are waterproof so you don't have to worry about them washing out, once injected they are there to stay. The hole we have to drill to inject the polymers is smaller than a penny and barely noticeable. The best part is this system only takes about 15 minutes to install so there is almost no down time and you'll be back driving on your driveway in no time.

    Concrete Slabs Separating in Williamsburg, MI Driveway

    We recently received a call from a customer in Williamsburg. They called us to inform us about their driveway and how part of it seemed to be sagging and felt like a pothole when driving on it. We drove to the house so that we could install our PolyLevel technology in order to fix their driveway. PolyLevel is an advanced polymer injection foam that we blast into the concrete through these little tiny holes in order to re-level and strengthen the concrete so that it is even better than new. PolyLevel worked to raise and level out the concrete slabs while dealing with the weak soils below that were no longer able to hold the weight of the home above. We drilled multiple small holes into the concrete slabs in order to inject them with a polymer material that expanded to lift and level out the concrete. Once injected, the system only needed about 15 minutes to fully cure and the slabs were then stabilized and lifted to their proper level, and stronger than ever before. Now, this homeowner will not have to worry about this ever again.
