What Causes Uneven Concrete

As soil underneath a concrete slab shrinks, settles or washes away, this leaves empty space, or voids, beneath the slab. With the soil no longer supporting the slab, the concrete will sink, creating an uneven surface.

Uneven slabs are nuisances for both home safety and curb appeal. Since slabs are also a tripping hazard, they can also become a liability issue. Fortunately Level Tech has an easy solution.

Quickly and Effectively Lift Sunken Concrete with PolyLevel®

PolyLevel uses a high-density polyurethane foam to fill voids and stabilize and lift sinking concrete slabs. The expanding properties of the two-part urethane formula allows for accurate leveling of the slab. The result is a waterproof repair that’s cleaner, faster and much more permanent than mudjacking and other common concrete repair methods.

How PolyLevel® Works

Small 5/8” holes are strategically drilled in the slab.

Injection ports are installed.

Polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete to fill voids and raise the slab.

Holes and control joints are sealed.

PolyLevel® Applications

If you have a driveway that’s sunken or uneven, replacing it might not be the most cost-effective option. We can use PolyLevel to raise the concrete, creating an even surface and preventing further sinking and cracking. Our driveway leveling process can eliminate unsafe conditions and improve the curb appeal of your home. The life of your driveway will also be extended for years without the need for replacement.

An uneven sidewalk not only looks bad, but it creates a tripping hazard. If the concrete slab is still intact, don’t waste your money on replacing the concrete. With PolyLevel, we can raise your sunken sidewalk, allowing you to walk on the sidewalk within an hour. Our sidewalk leveling process saves you time and money.

Patios, Porches & Landings

You shouldn’t have to worry about tripping on uneven concrete when relaxing on your patio. You might also notice your table and chairs wobbling because of uneven concrete. Concrete leveling can eliminate these issues and provide a safe, even surface.

Concrete Floors & Slab Foundations

If your home has sloped floors, cracks in floor tiles, gaps below baseboards, gaps at the tops of walls or sticking doors, you might have a concrete settlement problem. Our use of polyurethane foam for concrete floor leveling is a long-lasting alternative to self-leveling treatments.

Concrete Pool Decks

Has your concrete pool deck seen better days? Worried about the cracked, uneven deck causing tripping hazards? PolyLevel can raise your concrete pool deck back to its original position and help restore your backyard pool area into the oasis it once was.

Traditional Concrete Leveling Solutions vs PolyLevel®

Before PolyLevel, there were two basic options for lifting and leveling concrete: mudjacking and slab replacement. Both approaches have limitations and disadvantages. PolyLevel offers many advantages over traditional concrete leveling methods.

PolyLevel® vs. Concrete Replacement

Replacing a concrete slab is both expensive and disruptive. Concrete slabs can take days — or even weeks — to cure. Pouring new concrete over bad soil often delays future problems and leaves unsightly patchwork. PolyLevel material is lightweight, so it won’t add weight to weak soil. Best of all, PolyLevel allows for use of concrete within hours, not weeks.

If your concrete is structurally-sound, why replace it? Replacing the concrete won’t fix the soil problem that’s causing the settlement. Concrete leveling is the answer.
