Lift and Level Concrete with PolyLEVEL

Does your driveway, sidewalk, walkway, concrete steps or patio have problem areas where sunken concrete has caused uneven surfaces, tripping hazards, pooling water, or large cracks in the concrete to form?

Conditions where outdoor concrete has already begun to sink is not uncommon in Alberta, and is often the result of new concrete being poured over recently altered soil around the home during construction. This loose soil settles over a period of time, often creating a void underneath of the concrete slab. Soil Erosion is another common reason for voids to form. Water will run through cracks and joins in the concrete, which then washes out the existing soil over time.

But what can be done?

Traditional repair methods include Concrete Replacement and Mud Jacking, which are very disruptive, costly, and in most cases do not address the issue at hand meaning the concrete slab is very likely to sink again over time.

Our PolyLevel® Injection System from Supportworks is a state of the art approach to repairing sinking concrete. Rather than using a mixture of concrete and mud (Mud Jacking), PolyLevel utilizes a high density polyurethane to lift and level concrete slabs to the desired height.

Advantages/Key Features:

  • Minimal Disruption - Small 5/8" holes drilled for injection ports
  • Light Weight - Weighs in at only 2.5 lbs per cubic foot, opposed to upwards of 125 lbs of typical concrete or mud
  • Quick Cure Time - Can be driven on in 15 minutes after installation
  • Waterproof - Material will never wash out
  • High Capacity - Expansive polymers allow lifting of heavier loads such as stoops and slab foundations
  • Environmentally Friendly - The solution does not degrade and will not leach harmful chemicals into the soil

Our PolyLevel® installation process can often be completed in a few hours with immediate loading time after only 15 minutes, meaning you can quickly restore your property value and enjoy piece of mind right away!
