James M. of Champaign, Illinois was troubled by his uneven, cracked walkway. The walkway not only took away from his beautiful landscape, it was a safety hazard. System design specialist Cory S. desinged a solution to restore the walkway.
PolyLEVEL was installed by foreman Andrew T. and his team. PolyLEVEL is a long-lasting solution to lift and align concrete to its original, safe position. James no longer has worries about his settling concrete. He is thrilled to have a restored walkway.
Kurt K. of Brownstown, IL had an uneven concrete walkway. Some of the concrete slabs had sunk and pulled away from the house and were no longer level with the other slabs. It had created a major tripping hazard so Kurt called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended PolyLevel.
PolyLevel was injected under the sinking slabs. It’s an expanding polymer foam that lifts and levels concrete and cures in 15 minutes so it’s a quicker and more permanent solution than traditional mudjacking.
Mary B. of Centralia, Illinois was frustrated with her cracking, uneven driveway. As the soil settled, the concrete began to sink making it unsafe.
Foreman Andrew T. installed PolyLEVEL to restore the concrete to its original position and make it safe again.
The brick steps of this Carterville, Illinois home rested on a concrete slab. The slab had sunk on one side, raising the steps on one side and creating uneven steps.
Woods Basement Systems injected PolyLEVEL below the slab to fill the void and lift the concrete back to a desired level. The process was clean with minimal disruption, and the quick cure time allowed these homeowners to use their front steps instantly.
Kevin T. of Spaulding, IL had an uneven walkway and driveway. As can be seen in the picture, the concrete slabs in the walkway had sunken away from the step. The uneven areas posed tripping hazards so Kevin called Woods Basement Systems. Woods recommended PolyLevel.
Woods injected PolyLevel through small holes drilled in the concrete slabs. PolyLevel is a two-part foam that expands to fill any voids below the slabs and lift and level the slabs. It’s waterproof so it won’t wash away and it’s lightweight so it won’t add more weight to the soil below, making it a much more permanent concretely leveling solution than other methods like mudjacking. It also cures much quicker, causing less down time than traditional methods like mudjacking.
PolyLEVEL was injected into a sidewalk slab in front of this Highland, IL homeowner's house, realigning the slab with the front porch.
Mudjacking settling concrete slabs can get very messy. For example, large, unsightly holes must be drilled in the concrete prior to mudjacking. The grout being installed can spew out of the holes in the slab as it's being installed. Ultimately, mudjacking adds weight to the underlying soil, can erode or wash out, and takes days to cure.
PolyLEVEL, on the other hand, requires minimal disruption and boasts an impressively quick cure time—a concrete slab can be driven on 15 minutes after installation! This patio in Mascoutah, Illinois was able to be repaired and used by the homeowners the very same day. The material is waterproof and will never wash out. As a high-capacity, expansive polymer, PolyLEVEL can lift even heavy loads such as stoops and slab foundations.
Concrete settlement is a common problem that causes other problems like trip hazards, pooling water against foundations, and unsightly cracks in concrete. This porch in Mascoutah, Illinois had settled more than 2 inches, demonstrated by the gap between the concrete slab and the brick border.
Woods Basement Systems installed PolyLEVEL—a structural grade polymer—under the concrete slab to raise the slab back to a level position, and the difference is clear. PolyLEVEL is injected into the void beneathe concrete slabs, fills the void, and the polyurethane's expanding properties allow for an accurate lift.

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.
