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

Our home has water leaking into our basement only when it rains really hard. After last week's storm, I was finally able to trace to what appears to be the previous owner's patch job. We had similar situation with our previous home --which was fixed by your group.

Hello. My wife and I came home during a storm and both the corner of the basement and the corner of the bedroom in the basement had water pooled up there. The water looked to have came from the wall. This makes me think that there is a crack in the foundation. Also, I am unsure how long it has been going on for since we have only owned the home for 2-4 months.

The easement on my driveway from the city street is uneven. Most of the driveway is uneven. Also the sidewalk to the house has cracked. I need to know if mudjacking the driveway could be done or if I should look into replacing the driveway.

One of our Egress Windows leaks on the side despite caulking several times and the drain cannot keep up or is clogged. We also have had mud bubble up in the gravel area like water was coming from below. I have a video of the issue.

Found a leak in my crawl space. Leak is coming from a crack in the wall. Just heads up, the entrance to the crawl space is tight. Once in there is plenty of room.
