Concrete Lifting and Leveling Case Studies: Pool Patio Sinking causing Tripping Hazard
The homeowners living in Oakland, NJ had sinking slabs around their pool patio area. With their friends and family enjoying their pool everyday, they grew concerned with the tripping hazards around the pool that someone may get hurt. Luckily they knew Quality 1st Basement Systems was their local export for Concrete lifting and leveling and so they called and set an appointment for the following week. Upon inspection, System Design Specialist, Maurice Robinson noticed from 2 to 4 inches of settlement. Maurice reassured the homeowners that they would not have to replace their entire pool patio, since PolyLevel System would permanently lift and level each settled slab back to its original elevation.
The homeowners were concerned that going through with this project, it would prevent them from enjoying the pool. Maurice reassured them that the process is quick and involves no mess. PolyLevel System causes no disturbance to the surrounding area and 15 minutes after finishing, the patio could be walked on again. Quality 1st Project Manager, Arturo Jacunide and his were began drilling small, quarter size holes, into each sinking slab. PolyLevel foam is then injected underneath the slab, expanding and raising it back to elevation. This system stabilizes the slabs to prevent future sinking or settling. The homeowners were amazed that the job was not only done in a short few hours but their family was back using the pool the same day. All of the tripping hazards were removed and Quality 1st Basement Systems was able to provide the Oakland homeowners with the exact solution they were looking for.
