Concrete will crack and basement foundation wall cracks are common.  However, if the patched crack reopens or if a wall crack starts leaking, then you have other issues of concern.  Is the wall crack due to lateral pressure on the foundation wall (which can cause a bowing wall) or is it from settling stress? In an unfinished area of a basement, another option is BrightWall®.  BrightWall® gives the appearance of a finished look, controls a wall crack leak when tied into a basement waterproofing system, and allows for slight movement of the foundation wall.  If radon gas is present, a radon mitigation system would be necessary and sealing wall cracks are part of that process.

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

Hearing about Woods Basement Systems, Inc. in Collinsville, IL, they contacted the company for a free quote. Woods sent Norman, one of their sales reps, to inspect the damage, and he determined they needed the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System installed to realign their walls as well as lock them into place.

Agreeing with Norman's solution, Chad and Megan made an appointment to have one of Woods's foremen, Jeff, install the system. Once all of the work had been completed, Chad and Megan were relieved and very satisfied with Woods's work.
