    Concerte Leveling in Mohnton, Pa

    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!

    Concrete Lifting in Mohrsville, PA

    Here in Mohrsville, PA a community sidewalk outside a business had a significant gap in between the concrete slabs. This gap could result in an injury of a customer which could turn into a lawsuit. The BQ crew knew this customer needed a fast and non-invasive method to fix the problem. The crew recommended our concrete lifting which is fast, non-invasive and cheaper compared to concrete replacement. Our crew started the job by drilling a dime sized hole into the slab and we then injected it with our polyurethane foam. This lifted the slab and we then leveled and sealed it off. After around 15 minutes the slabs were fully dry and able to be walked on.

    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.
