Concrete leveling is the procedure to correct an uneven surface of concrete by altering the foundation underneath of it. This concrete surface can be a driveway, backyard patio, sidewalk, or even a pool deck. There are several methods of lifting concrete, but the most efficient and affordable method has shown to be PolyRenewal™ Injection. PolyRenewal™ is an expanding polyurethane foam that is injected beneath the concrete’s surface in order to fill the gaps and raise it back to its original position.

Cracked concrete occurs when a portion of a concrete slab breaks off and sinks into underlying soil that has either softened or washed away. When moisture seeps beneath the slab, it can cause the soil to soften or wash away completely. This causes the concrete above to crack even more as it sinks into the void that is left from the soil. To prevent moisture from seeping into the cracks, the concrete needs to be sealed. There is an easy solution to filling the cracks in concrete.

Concrete sealer is a method that coats concrete using a state-of-the-art bonding material to permanently protect water, dirt or any other contaminants from penetrating it. Unfortunately, once moisture seeps into the voids of concrete left unsealed, it is trapped and can expand into ice when the temperature drops. This, in turn, destroys the pores of the concrete and weakens it. This method is fast and effective as it only takes 6 hours to cure.
