Does your driveway, sidewalk, walkway, concrete steps or patio have problem areas where sunken concrete has caused uneven surfaces and tripping hazards to form? It's a very noticeable problem that has a very simple solution.
Conditions, where outdoor concrete has already begun to sink, are not uncommon in Michigan & Indiana and are often the result of shifting or a weak soil base or erosion.

See for yourself why PolyLevel® is a smart alternative concrete repair solution.
Six years ago Jess L. had concrete lifted at the meeting point between his garage and driveway. Recently he noticed that the concrete had settled about an inch around his garage door which made closing the door very difficult. We lifted the settled concrete in the garage/driveway intersection using our PolyLevel Injection. This is a great alternative to replacing cracked or settled concrete. This high-density foam fills any voids in soil particles, is waterproof and lightweight, and does not take long to cure.
Our concrete leveling specialist also recommended that Jess have the existing downspout extended to the yard to prevent water from washing out soil below the garage and driveway concrete which could lead to further settling.
One of our customers from Grass Lake called us about his walkway that was experiencing sagging and cracking. We gave him our professional help so that this would no longer be an issue. We installed PolyLevel which is an advanced polymer injection foam that we blast into the concrete which raises it level and makes 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.
Grayson had a cracked and settling concrete porch that he wanted to have fixed before he built a deck over it. He wanted to make sure it did not hold water under the deck so it was important to have it lifted. We used PolyLevel to raise the concrete back up to the original level and NexusPro to seal the cracks. PolyLevel is a waterproof and stable foam where NexusPro is a sealant made to withstand harsh weather. Both dry in a fraction of the time compared to other solutions so the process is not an inconvenience.

In the past, contractors relied upon mudjacking (also known as slab jacking, concrete lifting, concrete raising, grout pumping and slab leveling) to level concrete that had settled over time. This entailed pumping concrete slurry under the settled slab to raise it and hoping that the settlement wouldn't continue.
