Sinking slabs are dangerous and unattractive to your home. A family in Williamston, MI thought so too -- so they called us here at Ayers.

Have you noticed your cement driveway starting to sink in spots? If so, we have the answer for you. This customer called because their driveway was sinking and cracking in many different spots and they needed to get it fixed. However, often times this can be very costly because people want to come in and remove all the concrete with heavy equipment and put new concrete down. This does not fix the real issue though, and its also very disruptive.
We offer a non-disruptive and less costly way to fix your driveway called PolyLevel. Small penny sized holes are drilled in the concrete and high-density polymers are injected to lift the concrete back up to its desired height. The best part about our PolyLevel is that it is cured and can be driven on 15 minutes after installed.
When the concrete slab off of their deck started to sink, these Potterville, MI residents gave us a call. We sent our crew out to the home to help this slab with PolyLevel. PolyLevel involves injecting the slab with high-density to help raise the slabs back to their original. These polymers are incredibly strong, yet lightweight. The injection sites ares small, and the cure time is quick, so the slab is raised back to normal the same day, and can be walked on only 15 minutes after installation.

Thanks to a quick injection of PolyLevel by our production crew, the porch steps are as good as new. (Warning: There is no guarantee that snow will melt after a PolyLevel injection.)
This 3-car driveway in Dewitt, MI had recently cracked and sunk in some areas. The homeowners wanted a long-lasting alternative to replacing the concrete slabs, so they decided to go with the PolyLevel system. Similar to mudjacking, PolyLevel involves injecting the slab with a material to help raise the slabs back to their original. However, unlike Mudjacking which involves larger injections of mud and concrete, PolyLevel uses high-density polymers and small injection holes. This material is 30 times lighter and is fast-drying, so the driveway can be driven on within 15 minutes of installation. PolyLevel gives this driveway a major repair, in record time.
Dan W. has a patio they use for entertaining guests but unfortunately their deck was beginning to sink. It sunk about 3 inches so the family caught the issue early.

Dan didn’t have to worry about his daily life being disrupted or that the material will wash out from underneath the slab in the future.
