The driveway concrete slabs in front of this Keyport, NJ firehouse had shifted and sank into the ground, up to 3 inches in some areas.
That created a tripping hazard for pedestrians, and made it difficult for the fire engines to get in and out of the building during emergencies.
In the past, town's Mayor Harry M. Aumack II, had tried to repair the problem with conventional mudjacking, but the work didn't last long, and soon enough the slabs were sinking again. When searching for alternatives he learned of Quality 1st Basement Systems and the revolutionary PolyLEVEL™ concrete lifting system. He called the company and was surprised to find out that the PolyLEVEL system was not only a superior alternative to mudjacking, but very affordable as well.
The results impressed not only the mayor but many local residents and contractors who had the opportunity to see the heavy, 10 to 12-inch thick raised right before their eyes. The driveway was used many times since the application, with the 25 ton fire engines driving over the treated area, and the slabs are still leveled and in the same position they were right after application.
According to the Mayor, slab replacement would cost the town around 100,000 dollars, PolyLEVEL™ did the job for a fraction of that cost, much less disruption and virtually no down time. They had anticipated that the Fire Station would have to be closed for two or three days but the entire work was performed in only half a day!
That is the magic of PolyLEVEL™! For both commercial and residential concrete lifting, Quality 1st is the premier PolyLEVEL™ dealer in NJ and NYC!
