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!

We can Fix: 
  • Sunken sidewalks
  • Sagging steps
  • Uneven patios
  • Sinking driveways

Scott Comia, Construction/ roofing company owner, recommended me contact you. I had my basement finished by Newman home improvements, St. Charles in 2015. They moved pipes for a full bathroom. They "finished" in September 2015. My kids used it for 2 weeks. A strong mildew and mold smell was in the basement. Kids stopped using bathroom. The spring rains made it worse. Moisture came up from the floor. Water is seeping from the new concrete, which resulted in tearing up the floor and pulling out the toilet and vanity. Newman guys came in and said that it was not their fault and our now in bankruptcy. I am the original owner of the McBride home built in 2001. Please contact me for a quote. I have spent a lot of my money on this basement and it is still a construction zone.

We have a crack in the foundation at the above address. It is from top of foundation to floor. This is a townhome. The crack is leaking, minor. But leaking none the less. We originally asked the builder to handle under HO warranty. The home is 5 years old, they denied responsibility because their contractor says the crack is NOT displaced more than a 1/4 inch ?? So, I give up. We are requesting your Company call to set appointment to give us an estimate. Thank you. We would appreciate hearing from someone as soon as possible.
