Sinking Concrete?

Spring is the perfect time to have you concrete inspected.

We are ready for beautiful weather and the kids want to be outside.

We sure don’t want to see them get tripped up on an uneven sidewalk.

How did your concrete slab get this way?

Erosion of soil under the slab is one primary cause of concrete sinking around your property.

Rain can wash away the soil, drought can cause it to shrink, or not properly compacted when home was built. When it comes to concrete it has a lot to do with the earth below the slab.

Areas to check:

  • Driveways
  • Garage Floor
  • Pool Deck
  • Porch
  • Sidewalk
  • Porch Stoop

So what is the solution? PolyLevel. PolyLevel is an injectable solution to raise the concrete back to level. Typically, if the concrete is sinking the soil has compacted since the concrete was originally poured or soil has washed away from under the concrete. By drilling small holes in the top surface of the concrete about the size of a quarter and injecting the PolyLevel under the slab the surface can be leveled in minutes. The concrete is ready for use in 15 minutes. No need to worry about the mess of fresh concrete to set or watch it so neighbors don’t drawl their initials.

Perks to PolyLevel

  • Less than half the cost of replacement concrete
  • Can be used again in 15 minutes
  • Smaller and less holes than traditional mudjacking

*The inspector does not need to come into your home to see the outside concrete.

Concrete problems don’t get better with time or easier to fix. Slowly but surely they get worse, more expensive, and hurt the value of your home.

So get the kids back out there; Racing, skateboarding, hopscotch, drawing with chalk. You can move on to other spring projects or playing with the kids.
