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

Job Stories From Hartford, IL
Waterproofing Hartford, Illinois Basement

Homeowners Betty and Carl in Hartford, Illinois were worried about their wet basement. During the spring and summer seasons, water was coming in their space at the floor/wall joint. The water would pool onto the floor of the basement, destroying their items in storage. Upset and unsure of what to do, they decided to call Woods Basement Systems.

We sent our foreman Juan Hernandez and his team came out to the Hartford home to install our waterproofing system. Around the perimeter of the basement, they installed WaterGuard. They also installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Now, the basement is completely waterproofed!

Cracked, Bowing Hartford, IL Basement Walls Righted With PowerBrace

Thomas H. of Hartford, Illinois noticed that several of his walls had large cracks on the surface and appeared to be bowing inward. Wanting to avoid further damage and a possible collapse, he called Woods Basement Systems. 

To prevent further movement and support the walls, foreman Mason and his team installed several PowerBrace supports. These galvanized steel I-beams are incredibly strong and totally prevent wall bowing. Thomas no longer has to worry about a collapse and he can rest easy!

Wall Anchors Correct Cracking Walls in Hartford, IL

Rodney J. of Hartford, Illinois noticed that a few of his home's walls were bowing and cracking. He did not want the problem to progress or cause any safety concerns, so he called Woods Basement Systems for help.

Design specialist Kimberly W. assessed the situation and decided the best solution was to install wall anchors. Foreman Jeremy R. then traveled to the home to get started. Wall anchors extend from the inside basement walls to the hard packed soil outside. The steel anchors help stabilize walls and prevent any further movement.

Rodney J. no longer has to worry about his home's walls cracking and bowing. He now has stable and safe basement walls.
