The causes of concrete settlement and sinking are the same whether it's a driveway, walkway, patio, garage floor, or pool deck. As soil underneath a concrete slab shrinks, settles or washes away, this leaves empty space, or voids, beneath the slab. With the soil no longer supporting the slab, the concrete will sink, creating an uneven surface.
PolyLevel uses a high-density polyurethane foam to fill voids and stabilize and lift sinking concrete slabs. The expanding properties of the two-part urethane formula allows for accurate leveling of the slab. The result is a waterproof repair that's much more permanent than mudjacking and other common concrete repair methods.
Small 5/8” holes are strategically drilled in the slab.
Injection ports are installed.
Polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete to fill voids and raise the slab.
Holes and control joints are sealed.
This homeowner in Tiburon had a driveway/parking area that sank six inches due to the shifting soil beneath it. This movement caused the flow of water to be disrupted and multiple puddles would remain long after it rained.
After contacting Foundation Repair of California, one of our crews used a PolyLevel injection to lift the slab six inches and back to its original position. The PolyLevel process uses a 2-part polyurethane foam to quickly and efficiently raise the concrete slabs that are used in patios, driveways, and much more.
This homeowner is now happy with their driveway that not only looks great again, but correctly directs any water to their drainage system! Contact us today to schedule your free estimate.

Miss Smith took great pride in her house. From masterfully cutting and maintaining her perfectly measured lawn, to always touching up the trim of her house, she was the absolute queen of her home. She maintained her home immaculately, and she took great pride and pleasure in it.
That is, she did until this last summer when her area was literally rocked with a series of aftershocks from the Ridgecrest Earthquake. Thankfully, no one was physically injured. Miss Smith, however had a heavy hit to her pride when the aftershock actually cracked her driveway in multiple ways. Luckily the cracks were only cosmetic, and Jim Palamidas had the best solution.
David "DJ" Serpa was able to come out to Smith's house and install the Nexus Pro crack sealant. This silicone based caulking seals the crack to prevent any water to cause anymore damage to the slab, and thanks to the heavy duty strength is able to hold and maintain its shape for years to come. Best of all though, the coloring matched the driveway and the gradient texture hid any signs of former damage.
Miss Smith was able to repair her driveway, as well as, hide any signs of damage, making her driveway look great and, with the unsightly blemish gone, she's able to go back to taking pride in her home again.

Before PolyLevel, there were two basic options for lifting and leveling concrete: mudjacking and slab replacement. Both approaches have limitations and disadvantages. PolyLevel offers many advantages over traditional concrete leveling methods:
|Mudjacking or Slabjacking|
|Cure Time||15 minutes||24 hours or more|
|Material Weight||2 lbs per cubic foot||100 lbs per cubic foot|
|Hole Size||5/8" (size of a penny)||1" (size of a quarter)|
Replacing a concrete slab is both expensive and disruptive. Concrete slabs can take days - or even weeks - to cure. Pouring new concrete over bad soil often delays future problems and leaves unsightly patchwork. PolyLevel material is lightweight, so it won't add weight to weak soil. Best of all, PolyLevel allows for use of concrete within hours, not weeks.
If your concrete is structurally-sound, why replace it? Replacing the concrete won't fix the soil problem that's causing the settlement. Concrete leveling is the answer.
