Fast and Effective Concrete Lifting and Leveling

The major flaw of concrete is that the ground that it was poured on top of will inevitably shift and sink over time. In the states of Illinois and Missouri sinking concrete is all too common which is why our company has gone to great lengths to develop fast and effective concrete lifting and leveling solutions. PolyLevel is a revolutionary product that is minimally invasive and not only lifts and levels concrete but also stabilizes it. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab, then the PolyLevel polymer is poured into the holes. After only about 15 minutes the polymer is dry and the concrete is ready to be walked and even driven on. This concrete lifting and leveling technique is faster, less disruptive and arguably more effective than mud jacking which is the procedure PolyLevel replaces. To removed tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling estimate contact us today!

  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Large crack in garage floor. Floor is so uneven that the garage door does not reach the floor on either side of crack. I can provide a picture if that would help.
Vicinity of in Altamont
I was researching my area for basement repairs and came across your website. We have a basement that we would like to finish eventually, however, we have encountered several spots where water was on the floor after heavy rains. Last June our whole basement actually flooded but we received approximately 5 inches of rain in a day. Our basement has a natural drain and it seems that there are occasionally wet spots where the wall meets the floor after a heavy rain, like the one last night and this morning. I have a feeling it may have something to do with the downspouts coming directly down from the gutters rather than being drained away from the house but I would like an experts opinion. I look forward to your response, Jon Holland
