Here in Gordonville, Pa the homeowners are facing flooding in their home caused by their uneven concrete porch. Their front porch is pitched toward there home causing rain water to flow into there home. The homeowners called BQ Basements to lift and level their concrete porch. Our crew started by drilling dime sized holes into the concrete slabs. We then injected polyurethane foam into the holes which effortlessly lifted to porch. After the porch was leveled we sealed the tiny holes with caulk. The homeowners were able to use their porch within minutes of it drying.
Walkways and sidewalks are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. When the soil supporting the concrete becomes weak, the concrete can crack and sink. There are many things that can create a void beneath the slab, such as erosion from rainwater or gutter runoff, or a tree root that has rotted over time. Dirt fill underneath the slab that has not been well compacted can also create voids beneath the concrete. A concrete sidewalk that is uneven, not only looks bad, but it can lead to a fall or serious injury. The good news is the concrete does not have to be torn out and poured again to fix the problem. BQ Basement Systems can raise your sinking sidewalk and prevent it from sinking further. With PolyLevel® concrete lifting, we can make your sidewalk level again in just 15 minutes!

Here in Woodlyn, PA, our homeowner was experiencing a rather large gap between their front steps. This gap is most likely due to soil erosion and it will continue to drop if it does not get lifted and leveled. Our crew use our polyurethane foam to lift the slab to bring it back to it's normal height. We then leveled the slab and sealed the small hole with caulk. These homeowners now have a trip-free entrance to their home.
Expanding and contracting soil can cause concrete to shift, settle and crack over time. Rather than letting the damage continue, making repairs can extend the life of the driveway and prolong the need for full replacement. Take a look at the before and after shots on these concrete stairs and porch we repaired in Gilbertsville, PA
For this project, we used PolyLevel® to raise the concrete and create a safe, even surface. After leveling, we used silicone caulking to seal the joints. This prevents water penetration, and protects the soil underneath the driveway against erosion and washout - the two main causes of cracked, heaved and uneven concrete.
At this home in Haddon Heights, NJ, the homeowners were experiencing a sinking concrete walkway to their front door.

The crew lifted and leveled the slab with the help of polyurethane foam that drys in seconds. After 15 minutes, the homeowners were able to use their walkway immediately!
