THE PRO APROACH

The concrete around our homes - driveways, patios, pool decks and sidewalks - should enhance our quality of life. But when it cracks, settles or becomes uneven, suddenly you can be forced to deal with issues such as pooling water, uneven surfaces, and potentially dangerous trip hazards. And, cracked concrete just plain looks bad, lowering the value of your home.

The good news is, thanks to the latest technology and techniques The Basement Pros can lift, level, seal and protect concrete, so that it looks great and works as it should for many years into the future. This not only helps maintain your home's value, but also improves your quality of life, and, most importantly, restores your peace of mind.

CAUSES

Concrete is pretty amazing stuff. It can be poured, shaped and made into just about anything you like. But even though it's incredibly strong, it's not indestructible. So, when you see cracked concrete or a driveway or patio that has sunken or broken slabs or is pitted, flaked and stained, there are reasons why these things happen.

When your home was built, the contractor likely moved the soil around the building site resulting in poorly compacted soil. And even when it is compacted well, it's never as stable as the original soil. Over time, this can cause voids to form and slabs to settle.

Another cause of soil failure is drought. During dry conditions or even just during periods of warm weather and low precipitation, the soil under your concrete will dry out and shrink, creating voids. The concrete above eventually cracks and sinks into these empty spaces; especially if any weight is placed on it.

When the rains return, the water has an even easier pathway under the slab due to cracks and crevices left over from the dry period. And this wet, soft soil is just too weak to support the concrete above it. In the worst case, the soil erodes and washes away completely, leaving behind large voids that cannot support the weight of the concrete above.

PROBLEM SIGNS

Moisture is concrete's strongest enemy. It seeps into the pores of untreated concrete, and when temperatures drop, especially during freeze-thaw cycles, that trapped moisture expands as it turns to ice. This expansion destroys the pores and weakens the concrete. This results in concrete slabs that can pit and flake. Concrete's porous nature also makes it susceptible to staining when left untreated.

Call us if you notice your concrete is shifting, has voids, or is unlevel.

SOLUTION

When concrete slabs crack and sink due to soil compaction or wash-out, they not only turn your once-new driveway, patio, pool deck or sidewalk into an eyesore, they can also create potentially dangerous tripping hazards. So, what's the best approach to fixing cracked and sunken concrete?

The Polylevel Solution

Recently, a technological breakthrough has provided a simple and effective solution for lifting and leveling concrete slabs. Polylevel™ is a lightweight, strong high-density polyurethane foam that is pumped beneath concrete slabs through tiny ports about the size of a penny. Initially, Polylevel flows like water, filling even the smallest cracks and crevices in the soil. It quickly expands and hardens, lifting the concrete slabs above it and compressing the soil around it at the same time. Polylevel is waterproof, so it will never wash out, and it won't degrade over time due to temperature extremes. Best of all, Polylevel cures quickly, allowing your concrete to be used normally the same day.

If the concrete slab is beyond repair with our Poly crews, we have highly skilled masons that can remove and replace your concrete.
