You want your home to be safe and secure; Josh’s goal is to ensure it is by leveling and lifting any uneven concrete.
Concrete settlement is common and can cause significant problems like trip hazards, pooling water, and cracks. Our PolyLevel® is a high-density polyurethane that raises slabs back to a desired level. It can be used for sidewalks, driveways, garage floors, pool decks, and porches.
Bringing a comprehensive, personalized approach to every job, Josh will evaluate your areas of concern and provide a solution to quickly and effectively stabilize your sinking, settling concrete. Josh’s customers recommend him and the Ayers Team to their family and friends.

Bob B. called us because the cement slab by his steps on the porch was sinking and it kept getting worse over time. He was worried that someone was going to get hurt so he wanted to see about raising the slab back to it's original height. We sent out a system design specialist to check it out and we were able to do just that with our PolyLevel system.
PolyLevel is a simple repair to sinking concrete slabs on your porch, around your pool, your sidewalks etc. This method uses high-density, structural grade polymers to to raise slabs back to the desired level. Small holes (smaller than a penny), are drilled into the cement and and the polymers are then injected into the void. Once the void is filled the polymers expand and allow the slab to lift. The material is waterproof so it can't get washed out and it cures very quickly and is usually ready about 15 minutes after being done.
Oak Hill Condominium association wanted to ensure that the condo they had for sale was ready for the next owner and would be an easy sale. We did some waterproofing work to the basement and also did some concrete leveling to the sidewalks around the condo.
There's many reasons you should fix your sinking concrete. For example, the problem will continue to get worse, it affects the resale value, it's safety hazard and let's be honest it's not very appealing. Just because your concrete is starting to crack or sink doesn't mean that you have to replace it, we offer a much simpler and less invasive solution.
PolyLevel uses high-density polymers to raise slabs back to their desired level. This is accomplished by drilling small holes in the concrete and then injecting the polymers into the void. The holes are small (about the size of a penny). The material is waterproof so it won't wash out beneath the slab and its cure time is so quick it can be driven on within 15 minutes after installation.
A sump pump is an important asset to your home in so many ways. First off it makes sure that any water that enters your basement gets pumped up and out without causing a mess. Second, it pumps it far enough way that you don't have to worry about that water getting right back into your basement. Today's sump pumps are made with incredible technology that can even alert you in the event it can't keep up and you need to take action.
In this Jackson, MI home we installed our SuperSump sump pump. This sump comes with an airtight lid to prevent the water from evaporating right back into your basement. It also sits on a pump stand so you don't have to worry about mud or debris getting into the sump and causing it to clog up. There is even a pump alarm to alert you if the water level ever gets above the point where the pump normally turns on.
One of our awesome customers from East Lansing gave us a call about the concrete at the front of their house. So we drove out there and noticed that there was some cracking and sagging happening, so we installed our PolyLevel technology which is an advanced polymer injection foam that we blast into the concrete to re-level it and make it stronger than ever. 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.
A customer from East Lansing needed our help with improving her foundation. So we drove to her home to inspect how to improve it. After inspection, we decided to install SmartJacks. The SmartJack is a support system used to stabilize and level the floor joists in a crawl space. This system can support up to 60,000 pounds. The SmartJack system is placed on strong concrete fillings that have replaced the soil in that small location underneath the SmartJack. Now this homeowner will never have to worry about having a weak foundation.
This driveway in Laingsburg, Michigan wsa not level which made it hard to drive on. So, we solved the problem quickly with our PolyLevel technology. PolyLevel is a modern way to lift concrete that results in a more permanent result. It is done by a super tiny injection into the concrete that lifts it up and supports it better than ever before. This driveway is now smooth as silk.
Demeka's home has been giving her problems, such as having cracks and bowed basement walls. Eventually, she called us to assess her problem, it was determined by our specialists that her foundation is slipping. To fix this, our specialists determined that Powerbraces on the foundation walls of her basement would fix the problem permanently.
We received a call from a customer in Dewitt referring to her walkway and how unlevel it was. She wanted our professional help to get the job done. We drove to her home to install PolyLevel which is an advanced polymer injection foam that we blast into the concrete slabs through tiny little holes in the concrete. The foam levels it all out while making it 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.
