Serving NJ and NYC, Jersey City, Edison, Staten Island
If your sidewalk, driveway, walkway, patio has sunken or uneven concrete we can help fix it.
See how and why PolyLevel® works in this video.
Shifting or sinking outdoor concrete is common in New Jersey and is usually the result of a weak or shifting soil base. If you live in Staten Island, Edison, Jersey City or nearby call us today to get your concrete problem fixed.
Concrete slabs settle when the soil underneath the slab is too wet, too dry or poorly compacted. It becomes weak and can no longer support the weight causing it to sink and settle. PolyLevel provides additional support underneath the slab.
The installation is clean and quick. The foam is injected underneath the concrete slab through a small penny size hole.
The front step of this home began to settle. The concrete slab in front of the lowest step had settled as well creating a small trip hazard. Our Concrete Lifting and Leveling Solution known as PolyLevel was injected beneath the sinking slab right by the steps to raise it back to level.
A homeowner from Woolwich Township, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements after noticing their front porch had settled a few inches. Our Concrete Repair Specialist, Andy, recommended PolyLevel would raise the porch back towards its original position all while permanently stabilizing it to prevent future sinking and settling.
This Elmer homeowner had sinking concrete slabs on his patio and outside the entryway to his basement doors. He called Quality 1st to discuss his options on whether to replace the slabs or not. The Design Specialist recommended the PolyLEVEL System; high-destiny polymers that raise the slabs back to be level.
This homeowner from Harrison, NJ noticed three sinking slabs were settling in different directions in his driveway. Quality 1st Basements helped move the concrete slabs back into place with PolyLevel solution. This solution worked well for this homeowner because since PolyLevel solution hardens quickly, the driveway was useable in about 15 minutes!
The front steps to his Mullica Hill, NJ home were sinking and settling. We sent Concrete Repair Specialist, Andy G. out to inspect the area and provide a solution. Upon inspection, he mesured roughly 3 to 4 inches of settlment. Our Polylevel solution was injected underneath the front steps to raise, level and support the concrete steps.
Sunken driveways, sidewalks, and concrete floors not only look bad but they present tripping hazards. Sinking concrete is especially a problem if you are:
PolyLevel® is an efficient method for quickly and permanently lifting sidewalks. This simple injection foam stabilizes your concrete for years.
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.
