PolyLevel® polyurethane foam is a simple, quick and highly effective way to repair your sunken, cracked driveway, sidewalk or walkway. Developed by our sister company, Supportworks, for a network of concrete repair contractors across North America, PolyLevel is an incredibly strong, yet incredibly lightweight polyurethane material. PolyLevel lifts and levels concrete without adding extra weight to the soil beneath. Plus, it actually fills voids and compacts underlying soil, which stabilizes your concrete for years to come. Neither mudjacking nor concrete replacement does this.
Driveways, walkways and sidewalks are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. When the soil supporting the concrete becomes weak, the concrete can crack and sink. There are many things that can create a void beneath the slab, such as erosion from rainwater or gutter runoff, or a tree root that has rotted over time. Clogged gutters, downspouts that are not installed correctly, and poor yard drainage can make erosion worse. Dirt fill underneath the slab that has not been well compacted can also create voids beneath the concrete. A sinking driveway near your garage can lead to foundation cracks and expensive damage over time. Regardless of what’s caused your concrete to sink or settle, we can fix it.
Look familiar? The sidewalk in front of this home settled a couple inches, creating a trip hazard and an area for water to pool. After raising the slab with PolyLevel, we were able to turn the sunken sidewalk into a safe, level surface.
This concrete driveway had sunk about two inches in front of the garage. Using PolyLevel, we were able to raise the concrete, making the driveway level with the garage entrance. No more ugly sunken driveway!
Concrete lifting with PolyLevel is a practical, affordable solution for concrete sidewalk repair. In addition to taking less time and costing you less, concrete leveling is far less disruptive to the landscaping. If the concrete is ripped out and re-poured, the grass can be damaged from the heavy equipment and the removal of the old concrete slab. With PolyLevel injection lifting, there’s almost no waiting for the concrete to cure before you can walk on it.
While surface problems can likely be patched, this won’t fix the underlying settlement problem and more cracks can form in your driveway or sidewalk. Although do-it-yourself repairs might be less expensive, they can be messy, require special tools and equipment, and it can be as long as 30 days before you’re able to use your driveway again. No matter what’s causing your driveway or sidewalk to sink, we can fix the problem fast and prevent further sinking with our concrete repair services.Get a Free Inspection
