Does your driveway, sidewalk, concrete steps or patio have noticeable areas where sunken concrete has caused uneven surfaces and tripping hazards? Along with being annoying eyesores, these uneven areas can cause injuries, lawsuits and prevent your home from selling for the price you want. Fortunately, there is an easy solution.
Past methods of correcting settled concrete have involved mudjacking which entailed pumping grout or a mortar-based mix called slurry under the settled slab. This was no guaranteed, permanent fix though.
Complete DIY Concrete Replacement is a Headache
Completely ripping up a slab of concrete and laying a new layer requires a lot more time and money. First of all, You are going to need a bevy of supplies including a jackhammer, wheel barrow, trash container, cement mixer, cement, pry bars, shovels, pick ax, plastic sheeting, gloves, sledge hammer, etc. Surely, you own a few of these supplies but many of the power tools you will need to rent. The bills can start to stack up here. Then there is the time and energy you have to put into pulling up and disposing of the old concrete. After that, you need to consider the new instillation process like backfilling, laying reinforcement wire, building forms and mixing the cement. Finally, you wait a week for it to dry and set completely.
Concrete Leveling is Quick, Easy and Affordable
The PolyLevel system involves injecting a two-part polymer foam that is structural-grade and expands under the concrete for a durable and lasting solution. The polymers come out at a very high pressure in liquid form, filling gaps under the concrete and then expanding in about seven seconds. What makes Polylevel so unique is that the foam is flexible during installation so it can fold over itself for a completely accurate lift. It is inert and waterproof, so there’s no worry about whether it will wash out over time. Amazingly, it weighs only 4 lbs per cubic foot, so it doesn’t weigh down underlying soil.
Quick PolyLevel Stats:
- Cures in 15 minutes
- Weighs 2 lbs per cubic foot
- Injection holes are as wide as a penny
PolyLevel is Great For Commercial Use Too!
While PolyLevel is great for home use, it is such a lightweight, yet strong material that it is also ideal for larger scale projects on areas that take on a sizeable amount of heavy traffic, like roads and railways.
- Fill in sinkholes, major potholes and other voids
- Lift, level and stabilize roads and airport runways
- Repair and stabilize rail beds that have been weakened by soil erosion
