Clayton, NJ homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for an estimate on lifting and leveling the sidewalk at the end of the driveway. System Design Specialist, Maurice Robinson, recommended PolyLevel, for it would raise the concrete slab back to level and remove the tripping hazard at the end of the driveway. The crew was able to permanently lift and stabilize the concrete by injecting PolyLevel underneath the slab. After the injection, PolyLevel begins to expand and harden raising the slab back to its original state.
This Sewell, NJ homeowner was experiencing sinking slabs around their pool area. Since they were getting ready to close their pool in a few short weeks, they decided to wait before replacing the slabs. A few days later they noticed one of Quality 1st Basement Systems Concrete Lifting & Leveling trucks in their neighborhood and decided to call for a free estimate.
System Design Specialist, Jeff Pitek, went out to meet with the homeowners and inspect the slab area. Jeff recommended PolyLevel for it would lift and level the slabs. The homeowner's biggest concern was that if they replaced the sinking slabs, the concrete would no longer match the old. Since PolyLevel simply raises the existing slab, they knew this was the exact solution they were looking for!
The Sewell, NJ homeowners were thrilled that they were able to close their pool just hours after the installation was complete.
A customer in Washington Township, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements for a solution to their sinking concrete driveway. Quality 1st used Polyurethane foam known as PolyLevel to fill the void below each of the slabs, raising them back to level. Polylevel is a state- of- the- art approach to repairing sinking concrete. Rather then injecting mud or cement under the slab, we inject high- density, lightweight, structural- grade polymers to lift, level and stabilize. Once the driveway was raised, the team sealed the joints with NexusPro joint sealant to prevent cracking and crumbling in the future.
The sidewalk leading up to the stairs at this home in Newfield had settled, creating a large trip hazard. After hearing about PolyLevel on Facebook, the homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basements to inspect their concrete. A Concrete Repair Specialist headed out to the home and created a plan to raise the concrete. On the day of the installation, our team raised the slabs by injecting Polyurethane foam beneath them. Once the slabs were leveled, the team applied NexusPro Joint Sealant to seal off the area and prevent water and wind from eroding the soil beneath the slabs again. The area is now completely trip hazard free and safe for pedestrians.

You don't need to worry. Quality 1st Basements has fixed sunken concrete dozens of times and can do the same for you. We fix sunken concrete in driveways, patios, sidewalks, garages and anywhere else you can think of.
For years contractors had to use a technique called mudjacking (also known as concrete lifting, slab jacking, and grout pumping) to level settled concrete.
Mudjacking required you to drill large holes in the concrete slab and then pump a pressured concrete slurry underneath the slab. Unfortunately, this method does not work well for weak soils as the additional concrete just adds to the burden on the soil.
Instead of antiquated mudjacking Quality 1st Basements uses PolyLevel® to lift and level sunken concrete slabs. PolyLevel® is a polyurethane foam that is injected through much smaller holes. The foam expands to fill all gaps beneath the concrete and then lifts the slab back to a level position. PolyLevel® is much lighter than mud slurry and cures much quicker as well.
