Front concrete step settled due to weak soil beneath the slab. Polylevel was injected underneath to raise it back towards its original position. Within 15 minutes the homeowner was able to use their steps. Polylevel is an easy and clean installation.
Tripping hazards around your pool deck area can be very dangerous when using the pool area. Instead of replacing the concrete which could prevent you from using the pool for days, lift the existing slabs!
Our team drills small penny-size holes into the concrete slab and using special equipment, they inject PolyLevel underneath to raise and stabilize it. Within just 15 minutes of completion, you can walk on your pool deck and use your pool!
A homeowner in Trenton, NJ, was looking for the tripping hazard in his backyard to be removed. The uneven slabs would pose a danger to the kids as they could trip and hurt themselves very badly. After much research online, Quality 1st was the most reliable company the homeowner could find. Quality 1st went out on-site and lifted the settling slab in no time. The homeowner had peace in mind that anyone would be able to walk in the backyard without injuring themselves.
Water can get under concrete slabs, wash out the supporting soil, and leave the slabs sinking and settling. PolyLevel foreman Sean Andreas Johnson injected PolyLevel beneath this customer's concrete walkway, lifted the slabs, and eliminated a rather severe trip hazard. The best part...the high density polymers used in the PolyLevel installation prevent future wash-outs!
This customer reached out to Quality 1st Basement Systems to raise the sinking concrete near the front door. Our crew came out and drilled small holes in the concrete slab. Using special equipment, we inject polyurethane foam known as PolyLevel, underneath. Now concrete settles because the soil is either too wet, too dry or poor compacted which makes it weak causing settlement. PolyLevel fills any voids between the soil and the slab by expanding and raising the concrete. Once its leveled, PolyLevel hardens to stabilize the slab.
Front porch deck was sinking in front corner. Poly foreman Sean Andreas Johnson drilled a few dime-sized holes in the concrete and injected PolyLevel to lift the deck. The decorative column is once again being supported by the concrete porch deck below.
PolyLevel Injection Foam was used to lift and stabilize this customer's front stoop after it was found to be sinking and settling as evidenced by the separation near the foundation. Concrete Specialist Jeff Pitek met with the customers to assess the issue and Sean Johnson and his crew worked to inject the PolyLevel and lift the stoop back up.
When water finds its way under concrete walkways, often times the void created causes the sidewalk to sink. This customer's sinking walkway was pulling down away from the front steps. Foreman Sean Johnson and his crew injected PolyLevel foam beneath the concrete slabs to lift the walkway back up to meet the steps.
The PolyLEVEL solution for a trip hazard proposed by concrete specialist Andrew Gagliardi involved the injection of structural grade polymers beneath the concrete walkway slabs through small holes. Foreman Sean Andreas Johnson installed the PolyLevel, lifted the concrete, and in essence, eliminated the tripping hazard.
Erosion can cause a concrete sidewalk slab to sink. If this happens and the adjacent slabs are higher, a trip hazard occurs. Jay Alvarez, System Design Specialist with Quality 1st Basements, proposed PolyLevel and Nexus Pro Joint seals as a solution. Foreman Sean Johnson installed the products to lift the slab and seal the joints, eliminating a trip hazard and a reoccurrence of a sinking slab.
To create a safer environment for their family and guests, this homeowner contacted Quality 1st to remove trip hazards surrounding the pool. The concrete had settled over time due to water from the pool eroding the soil beneath the slabs. Our team installed PolyLevel beneath the slabs to fill the void where the soil had washed away. PolyLevel is strong enough to stabilize and support concrete but light enough that it won't add any weight to the already heavy soil under the slab.
The installation was quick and the pool deck was able to be used within 15 minutes after the installation was complete.
Quality 1st Basement Systems lifted this sidewalk back to its original level with our polyurethane foam know as PolyLevel. What is PolyLevel? Its a waterproof and environmentally safe foam that creates additional support underneath an existing slab, raising it back to level. The soil underneath a slab can become too wet or too dry causing it to weaken where it can no longer support the weight of a heavy sidewalk slab causing it to sink and creating a trip hazard. To prevent a serious accident from occurring, this homeowner contacted us to raise their sidewalk and eliminate the trip hazard.
Quality 1st Basement Systems removed the trip hazard outside of this home in Staten Island by lifting and leveling the concrete slabs back toward their original position. Our team used PolyLevel, a light weight, waterproof and environmentally friendly foam. PolyLevel expands underneath the slab to raise the concrete back to level. Once leveled, the PolyLevel foam hardens to permanently stabilize the slab and remove the trip hazard.
A smooth ride into the driveway can be interrupted by sinking concrete at the apron and/or the sidewalk leading to the driveway. Jonathan Seminerio, a Concrete Specialist, proposed PolyLevel foam injection to lift the concrete and eliminate the drop. Foreman Sean Johnson and his crew went on-site to install the PolyLevel and resolve the issue.
In preparation for re-finishing the basement our customers in Secaucus decided to waterproof first. Design specialist Greg Lewis showed them how removing the old walls and putting in WaterGuard perimeter drain it would ensure the new basement would stay dry. The walls were removed by Sean and his crew and the WaterGuard was put in. Now when they finish the basement it will always be comfortable.
This concrete patio area in front of this New York home was sinking and settling. The homeowner did not want to replace the front patio area for the replacement process was costly and time consuming. They wanted an immediate fix to this concrete area.
System Design Specialist, Jay H., did a full inspection, took measurements and provided her with a free estimate for a permanent solution, PolyLevel. PolyLevel is injected underneath the slab to raise it back to level. Once leveled, the foam hardens to prevent future settlement.
