Foundation settling problems can be accomplished by placing the Foundation SupportWorks® pier bracket directly below the vertical basement wall.  The pier may either be placed on the inside of the basement to save landscaping or on the outside to adjust for the wall rotating outward.  In this case the problem was caught early and the push piers were installed in the interior.  When installed this way, soil does need to be excavated, but our experts make sure to clean up after themselves and the homeowner will never even be able to tell that we were there...besides the fact that they will now have a straight, stable wall!

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.

How PolyLevel works:

  1. The concrete lifting and leveling process begins with a few small holes drilled in the slab.
  2. Then the PolyLevel polymer is injected into the holes and expands to provide an accurate lift.
  3. 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 standard that PolyLevel replaces. We even offer SealantPro concrete sealing, which extends slabs' lifespans by 3 to 5 times overall in just one quick application. This concrete sealing system is resistant to moisture, oil, UV rays, abrasions, and more.

To remove tripping hazards, stabilize concrete, and lift it back to a level height nothing is faster or more effective than PolyLevel concrete leveling. After, our concrete sealing system will preserve your slabs for a lifetime. To schedule a FREE concrete lifting and leveling or concrete sealing estimate, contact us today!

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

Concrete Repair In Defiance, MO

Allan F. of Defiance, MO made a call to Woods Basement Systems for a free estimate about fixing the unevenly settled and sinking concrete outside of his home. Unevenly settled concrete can happen naturally over time, as the result of several causes. Some of which are the accumulated weight of what the concrete is responsible for holding up, in addition the actual weight of the concrete itself.

Woods Basement Systems sent out Austin G., a Systems Design Specialist. Upon his evaluation of the home, he determined that the appropriate solution would be for foreman Andrew T. to install PolyLevel, a foam that is injected into the concrete works to lift the concrete back to its original position and fill in cracks.

Since the installation of PolyLevel, Allan no longer has to worry about the issues that the sinking concrete was causing for his home.
