Tim W. has been a resident and homeowner in Inman, SC for most of his adult life. He and his wife recently retired which gave them extra time on their hands. Through the years they were not able to do everything they wanted in regards to renovations on their home. Working full time and raising children did not leave much time for home improvement. Tim and his wife have been enjoying finally doing different projects around their home. Tim had noticed a while ago that their back concrete porch was sinking.

The kids love playing outside so Vic and Tricia specifically bought a home that had a huge front and backyard. Recently, one of the kids tripped over the sidewalk leading up to the front steps. Vic and Tricia had not previously noticed that their concrete slab leading up to the door had started to sink. They were concerned about the safety of their children as they played outside. Immediately Vic began to look for a company that could solve this tripping hazard. During his search online he came across Cantey Foundation Specialists and their PolyLevel process. Vic and Tricia decided they would make an appointment to have someone come out and inspect. System Design Specialist Ryan Holloway arrived for the appointment and inspected the area in question.

Ruth S. has lived in her Landrum, SC home since she and her husband got married. A few years ago, her husband passed away and she has had to take over the responsibility of her beloved home. Ruth never had much experience in home improvement or getting things fixed, her husband always took care of it. She believed in trying to find companies that could help her and also respect her. Ruth had heard some great comments about Cantey Foundation Specialists in her community and one night while watching the evening news she saw a commercial for Cantey. It was talking about their concrete leveling technology which she recognized that she had an issue at the end of her carport. It was a tripping hazard and she hated looking at that gap every day. The next day, Ruth called in and scheduled an appointment for an inspection. System Design Specialist Ryan Holloway came out and did a thorough inspection of the carport area. He then sat down with Ruth to explain the process of Cantey's PolyLevel solution. It would begin with small holes drilled through the concrete slab. Then a liquid PolyLevel solution would be injected underneath the concrete. This liquid would fill all the void underneath and within minutes, expand and harden to form a solid base for the concrete slab. The foam provides the lift that the concrete slab needs as well as providing a waterproof base that will not wash away. The small holes are then filled and the project is complete. Ruth appreciated that Ryan was so kind in answering all of her questions and loved that this solution would only take a few hours.

The causes of concrete settlement and sinking are the same whether it's a driveway, walkway, patio, garage floor, or pool deck. 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.
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 much more permanent than mudjacking and other common concrete repair methods.
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.
Cantey Foundation Specialists has the expertise and equipment to quickly raise and level many types of slab-on-grade concrete, so you can use those areas around your home without worry.

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.
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:
|Mudjacking or Slabjacking|
|Cure Time||15 minutes||24 hours or more|
|Material Weight||2 lbs per cubic foot||100 lbs per cubic foot|
|Hole Size||5/8" (size of a penny)||1" (size of a quarter)|
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.
