PolyLevel® Concrete Lifting & Leveling

PolyLevel® is sometimes mistakenly referred to as slab jacking. This concrete leveling product is a two-part foam engineered to expand immediately upon injection beneath a settled slab. Injection holes are much smaller than those required for mud jacking. In action, PolyLevel® expands to many times its original volume, forcing the sunken concrete back to its original level. Within a matter of minutes, the expanded polymer hardens and reaches 90% or more of its final strength. This makes it possible for the restored surface to regain full functionality right away.

Job Stories From Contra Costa County, CA
Uneven Flooring Issue - Discovery Bay, CA

Mrs. C lives on the water in Discovery Bay, CA. Her crawlspace gets seasonal moisture, so the floor jacks constantly need adjusting.  Our Structural Consultant went out to inspect the issue and suggested our SmartJack system as a solution to help to solve this problem. The following year she had us back to address her settlement issue and install piering to raise the foundation of her house.

Mrs. C was very pleased with the work and our customer service. 

Uneven Flooring Issue in Walnut Creek, CA

Mr. N of Walnut Creek, CA had a property that suffered from uneven flooring. He wanted the problem resolved prior to putting it on the market. After a thorough analysis done by one of our exceptional Strucural Consultants, the recommendation given to solve Mr. N's uneven flooring was to replace all of the wood posts that supported the floor inside the crawl space with Foundation Repair of CA's SmartJack technology. A SmartJack is an adjustable steel column that is placed above engineered fill that addresses the problem of weak foundation soil by transferring the weight of the home to competent strata. The SmartJack then lifts and stabilizes existing beams and floor joists to make your stroll across your home less like a hike and more like a walk in the park. With the flooring of his home back at level, and the market value of his home higher because of our SmartJack's permanent solution, Mr. N found peace of mind and was then ready to put his home up for sale in preparation for a brighter future. 

Home settling 6+ inches

Before Mr. M. came to Foundation Repair of CA for help, he had tried to sell his home for over a year. The house was built in a nice neighborhood with a booming community, and it was a beautiful home that any family could have fallen in love with, but there was one glaring problem when you stepped foot inside. The foundation of Mr. M's home was the victim of settlement, with the worst parts of the home having sunk over 6 inches. None of the potential buyers wanted to take on a home that had such a widespread and deep foundation issue. 

Through a Yelp search, Mr. M. found Foundation Repair of California and based on the satisfaction he saw written by our customers in their reviews, he decided to give us a call. One of our amazing Structural Consultants came to his home and, based on a thorough analysis, recommended an FSI Push Pier System. Then our crew came to Mr. M's house, installed the Push Pier System, and lifted the house to equilibrium. Now, with a level home and our 50 year transferrable warranty, Mr. M is able to sell a home that is beautiful on the outside and the inside, and the future buyer of the home can rest assured that their home will never have to worry about soil movement effecting their home in the future.

From Nightmare to Dream Come True

When Mr and Mrs L got married, they envisioned their dream of settling down together. They saw their happy future of a white picket fence with their children and dogs. This dream came true shortly after their wedding when they officially bought a house together. All of their hard work was finally paying off as their dream is becoming a reality. Unfortunately, soon after they moved into their home, their dream became a nightmare. They realized that the foundation for over half of their house was sinking, and with it went the walls and the floors. It was a dangerous situation that needed to be repaired and fast. Luckily the superstar salesperson, Lisa Lewis, was able to go out and asses the problem areas. Lisa found that not only did they need smart jacks for their crawlspace, but was able to find that the house needed a pier system and to be void filled with the polyurethane foam to be completely stabilized afterwards.

Once Mr and Mrs L decided to go forward with the work proposed by Lisa, Foundation Repair of California sent out Kimo, Antonio, and Jameson to complete the work. With Kimo's guidance, Antonio and Jameson were able to complete all of the preparation work for to be completed before their next problem was discovered. Due to the foundation not lifting properly, the superintendent Jorge Rizo was sent out to the site to inspect the issue. Jorge went into the crawlspace to discover another foundation wall that was anchoring down the rest of the foundation that was trying to be lifted. Jorge recommended to add another pier on this wall and after this was completed, the entire foundation was able to be lifted and leveled completely. Although this issue was resolved, yet another problem arose for the team to face.

It was revealed that the slab that was used for the living room was not properly attached to the foundation wall that separated the slab with the crawlspace. Due to this, when Kimo's team lifted the house all of the foundation was lifted and leveled, however the slab in the living room was now sagging, causing an eyesore of a gap inbetween the floor and the wall. Thankfully, when Sam Phelps and the polyurethane leveling crew came to fill the void, they were able to lift the slab to match the foundation wall, before continuing to fill the rest of the void between the ground and their foundation. Mr and Mrs L were thankful that not only was their floors stabilized and even with the walls, but that the polyurethane was nonintrusive due to the one-quarter inche sized holes that were used to pump the foam into.

In conclusion, Mr and Mrs L were happy and excited to begin their life together but were devasted when they found that their dream home had nightmare problems. This wasn't a problem at all for the team at Foundation Repair of California, though. Lisa was able to find the cause of the issues, the leadership from Jorge to work through obstacles, Kimo and his team were able to complete all of the piering system to lift the foundation, and Sam and his crew were able to lift the slab and stabilize the home. Thanks to every team member, Mr and Mrs L's nightmare is over and they can finally go back to living their dream.

Bruises to Beautiful

Although Sandy was happily retired, she considered herself to have a full time position as the world's greatest grandmother. Every summer, her and her husband would have the grandkids visit to enjoy their vacation. Grandpa would entice them with old stories while Sandy would make cookies and lemonade for everyone. This is why it broke her heart when the youngest of her grandchildren came to her with tears rolling down her cheeks. While playing tag with her siblings, she had tripped and scraped her knee. After helping with her scrape, Sandy went outside to see what had happened. Upon further investigation it became evidentally clear that the walkway on the side of her home had sunk and tilted, creating an uneven slope and an immediate tripping hazard. Sandy knew that this was a problem that needed to be fixed and fast.

Sandy called Foundation Repair of California, and, in less than a week, Sam Phelps was able to go out and assess the problem area. Upon arriving to Sandy's home, Sam instantly knew how to permanently fix her problem and more. After inspecting all the concrete areas around Sandy's home, he found two other places where the concrete had sunk and thus created tripping hazards. After seeing the locations and the solution, Sandy was eager to go ahead with the work, but was cautious about moving forward due to previous experiences with other contractors. 

However, Sandy was pleasantly surprised to find that Sam could give her a quote while he was still at her house. She was also excited about the affordable pricepoint for the large amount of work being done, and that it included a five year warranty. Even more than that, she was flabbergasted to find out that the entirity of the work will be completed in one day and that her work could be scheduled within two weeks.

Brian Ogle and his assistant Anthony Jr. arrived to Sandy's house to complete the work. They used the quarter of an inche drill to create holes in the concrete and then pumped the polyurethane foam into the holes and thus under the concrete slab. The foam expanded, and after compressing the dirt underneath, began to raise the slab to its original point. The walkway tilted back to become a level surface and to close the gap that created the tripping hazard in the first place. The crew then used a silicone-based caulking to seal all joints and cracks to prevent water from sinking the slab in the future.

In conclusion, Sandy was impressed by the crew's can-do attitude, their professional punctuality, and the noninvasive nature of the work. In a matter of a few hours, all of her tripping hazards were fixed and were sealed to prevent this issue from ever happening again. She no longer has to worry about the safety of her grandchildren again, and can bake cookies in peace.

Sleepless and Settling

One of the greatest joys a person can have is to be able to relax in their own home. To have a place that they can call theirs. A place that is more than just four walls and a roof, not just a house, but a place that they can call "home". That is exactly what Mr. James believed he found when he and his wife bought their new home. It had everything they could ever want. Lots of room to grow their family, a large backyard for relaxing and lounging during a summer bbq, and a big dining room and kitchen for family dinners. It wasn't until after they bought the home and moved all their furniture in that they found that the foundation of the home was sinking on one side. Due to the sunken foundation, the windows overlooking their yard weren't closing, the family dining room had an annoying slope to it, and, worst of all, they could feel how unlevel and crooked their master bedroom was when they laid in bed. They desperately needed help to fix this.

Steve Connor came out to Mr. James' home to find the exact problem and provide the best solution to it. To lift and level the foundation, Mr. James needed the push pier system to lift and stabilize the perimeter of the foundation. Steve was able to find exactly how low the foundation had sunk and was able to accurately give a proposal for how many piers would properly fix the foundation. Mr. James was grateful for how informative and helpful Steve proved himself to be and how hard Kimo and his crew worked.

Kimo lead the crew with Antonio and Jameson to prepare the house for the push pier system. Little did they realize the issue that they would come across. Although the master bedroom's foundation was easy to prepare by digging two feet deep to access the bottom of the foundation, Kimo found that most of the home had foundation that was three feet deep, meaning that for most of the holes they had to dig out four feet of dirt and thus doubling the amount of work that needed to be done. Even though this was a set back, and the job required a few more days of work, it was not a problem for the Foundation Repair of CA team. Brian Ogle and Anthony Jr. were both sent out to help the crew dig and the job was even visited by the production manager, Shane Motter, to ensure that the work was being completed in a timely matter. 

Despite the discovery that the job involved twice the work, the job was able to be completed in a timely fashion. Thanks to the hard work done by the team, James and his family can now all sleep in an even and level house that they call home.

Sinking Driveway in Concord, CA

Now that Heather and her husband are retired, and all their kids have moved out of the house, the couple has decided to move into a smaller house in a quieter neighborhood. To get ready to sell their home they have been investing in small renovations on the interior of the house, however, when they spoke to a realtor they were told that it would really help to also fix some of the issues in the exterior as well, one of which being their driveway which had sunk. They looked into their options and discovered how invasive and pricey the project was going to be to completely tear out the concrete and repour a new slab. Luckily for them, they found Foundation Repair of CA.

They were pleased by how friendly our office was when scheduling a consultant to come out and evaluate the area, and they were impressed by Jim Palamedes being as punctual and informative as he is. When Jim assessed the area he suggested the Poly Leveling system to raise the slab and Nexus Pro crack sealant to seal the joint between the driveway and the garage.

Within two weeks, foreman David "DJ" Serpa and his crew were able to come out to perform the work. Upon arriving, DJ inspected the area and discovered that one side had sunk more than the other side. This wasn't an issue for him though, because of his extensive experience in working with the polyurethane foam. DJ had the crew prep and clean the area while he injected the foam underneath the slab. DJ injected a little bit at a time across the driveway, to prevent any unnecessary cracking during the lift. He made sure to keep an eye on the garage slab to prevent the driveway from being over lifted, and after awhile DJ stopped when the slab was perfectly even and level. After this, the crew installed the Nexus Pro crack sealant to prevent any future water damage to the slab.

Heather was astonished to see the work done. In a matter of a few hours, her driveway was completely flush with her garage slab and the eyesore of a crack was completely sealed. Heather and her husband were able to get a better evaluation of her house and the future homeowner never has to worry about a sinking driveway.

Cracked Walkway in Pleasant Hill, CA

Over the years, water has eroded the dirt underneath a walkway in this Oakland based apartment complex. The erosion lead to animals beginning to dig around the area as well until the hole became so large that the walkway literally cracked in two and was a serious safety concern. The property manager was able to get approval to go forward with fixing the walkway, and that is when she called Foundation Repair of CA.

One of our best consultants, Jim Palamedas came out to the site and saw the extent of the problem. It was going to take a lot to fix this walkway to be just right, but thankfully Jim has a lot of experience fixing just this sort of issues. Jim knew that the best solution to lift this slab back into place was to use the Poly Leveling system and include the Nexus Pro crack sealant to prevent any future problems.

The Poly Level Foreman, David "DJ" Serpa came out with the Polyurethane crew within two weeks. Upon arriving, DJ knew that this wasn't just going to be a normal job, but was going to be a large challenge. He began by injecting a base of foam underneath the slab to give it support, before attempting to lift. DJ then had his crew members use pry bars to use leverage and pry the cracked slab back up. After it was hoisted up, DJ would inject a small amount more. This was repeated several times until enough lift was achieved to be able to jack the slab up with a bottle jack. After repeating this method continuously, the cracked walkway was brought up to be perfectly level and the crack was then sealed with Nexus Pro to prevent any water damage.

Thanks to the skill, knowledge, and experience of Jim and DJ, the tenants of this apartment complex will never have to worry about the tripping hazards of that walkway again.

Settling Driveway in San Ramon, CA

Alex has always been a "Car Guy" and now that his kids are all moved out, he is ready to finally get a nice car. However, his wife would like their driveway to be fixed before they spend the money on a fancy new car. Therefore, he found it prudent to fix their driveway before making the investment for a new car, and that is why they called Foundation Repair of CA.

Within two weeks, foreman David "DJ" Serpa and his crew were able to come out to perform the work. Upon arriving, DJ inspected the area and discovered that one side had sunk more than the other side. This wasn't an issue for him though, because of his extensive experience in working with the polyurethane foam. DJ had the crew prep and clean the area while he injected the foam underneath the slab. DJ injected a little bit at a time across the driveway, to prevent any unnecessary cracking during the lift. He made sure to keep an eye on the garage slab to prevent the driveway from being over lifted, and after awhile DJ stopped when the slab was perfectly even and level. After this, the crew installed the Nexus Pro crack sealant to prevent any future water damage to the slab.

After that was completed, DJ and his crew then opened all the cracks and proceeded to install the Nexus Pro crack sealant to not only smooth out the divots made by the cracks but also make the driveway look nicer as a whole. Now that all of the slabs are leveled out and the cracks sealed up, the problem with the driveway is fixed and the slab is protected from any future damage.

Being that their driveway is now repaired, Alex can now begin to look for a new car that both he and his wife will enjoy.

Dropping Pool Deck in Walnut Creek, CA

The Smith family always loved going to the water. Whether it was the beach or a lake or even a community pool, almost every family outing involved swimming and sunbathing. That's why when the Smith couple was finally able to afford to move into a bigger house they made sure that it came with a pool. The problem was that the pool had a tripping hazard due to the slab having sunk into the ground. Concerned about their children and guests they contacted Foundation Repair of CA to look at the problem.

When Jim Palamides saw this, he knew exactly how to fix the problem. Having seen this issue many times before, Jim used his experience to suggest the Poly Leveling installation. This process works by drilling holes into the concrete, injecting a polyurethane fluid in through the hole, and the polyurethane will begin to foam underneath the slab and thus raise the slab to its original position. Jim, having the experience and foresight, also suggested that the crew inject all around the pool as well to fill any voids that have been created, and thus add extra support to stabilize and prevent future damages.

Two weeks later, Foreman David "DJ" Syrup arrived at the Underwood residence, he was both cautious and confident. Seeing that the slab was not cracking and had simply fallen straight down, he knew that this slab can come up beautifully, however, due to the amount that it has fallen, he knew that he needed to be conscientious about how fast he injects. And just like the turtle versus the hare, DJ was able to slowly and surely lift this slab perfectly to match the surrounding areas. Once the sunken section had lifted up, DJ then drilled holes into the surrounding area. After drilling the first hole, however, DJ discovered that there was a significant void under the concrete and that it was good that they were injecting to stabilize and protect from future sinking.

The Smiths appreciated the work done by Foundation Repair of CA. Jim was timely and thorough and DJ was an expertly careful craftsman, and thanks to the two of them, the Smith children can play in the pool with no worries of scraped knees.

Sinking Foundation in Pleasant Hill

Mr. Smith loved his beautiful home. It's where he and his wife decided to settle down. It was their dream house, where the two of them wanted to spend all of their retirement. Their children had grown and moved out, and now they just want to settle down in a much quieter neighborhood. They enjoyed the quiet lifestyle, and loved that the new backyard had the perfect amount of space for their future grandchildren. The house was a gorgeous colonial built home, however upon further inspection there was more than meets the eye. The Smiths discovered this when they started to install new flooring, and they found that their floors were slanting. That's when they realized that they needed to get this looked at soon.

That is when Tracy Holifield was called out. Tracy is a foundation consultant at Foundation Repair of CA, and thankfully, she had the experience and knowledge to know just what to look for. Upon further investigation, she found that the foundation of the home had been sinking at an alarming rate, and worse than that, only one side was sinking, thus creating the slant on the floor. Tracy knew that this would problem would only get worse if left alone, and so recommended the best solution: installation of a push pier system with a poly level void fill.

Push pier system foreman, Vernon "Kimo" Kaauwai, arrived to the site to see that his work was cut out for him. Seeing how the ground was incredibly compacted and hard, digging the holes to install the pier brackets became incredibly difficult. This was fine for Kimo though, as he is no stranger to obstacles, and he and his team pushed forward and worked through it to complete the job. After all brackets were installed, Kimo and his crew lifted the foundation with the hydraulic pump. 

Once the foundation was lifted, the poly level foreman David "DJ" Serpa installed the polyurethane foam underneath the slab to fill in the void that was created from the lift. This gives an added support to the slab and stabilizes the entire system that has been installed into the home.

Now with all products installed, and the foundation has been lifted, leveled, and stabilized, the Smith household now is completely flat and the couple can now install their new flooring.
