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.
Ogburn Construction has the expertise and tools to safely and quickly level many types of slab-on-grade concrete. We will help ensure that you can use those areas around your home without worry.

If your driveway has become sunken or uneven, a full replacement might not be the most cost-effective option. Ogburn Construction can use PolyLevel® to raise your driveway, creating an even surface and preventing further sinking or cracking from lack of support. Our driveway leveling process can eliminate unsafe conditions, improve the curb appeal of your home, and extend the life of your driveway.
An uneven sidewalk looks bad and creates a tripping hazard. If the concrete slab is still intact, opt for a repair instead of replacement. With PolyLevel®, we can raise your sunken sidewalk and have you walking on it in as little as one hour thanks to the fast cure time. Our sidewalk leveling process saves you time and money in the long run.
Your patio should be a place of relaxation free from trip and fall hazards due to uneven concrete. You might also notice your table and chairs wobbling because of uneven concrete, which puts a damper on outdoor entertainment. Concrete leveling can eliminate these issues and provide a safe, even surface for you to enjoy.
If your home has sloped floors, cracked floor tiles, gaps below baseboards, gaps at the tops of walls, or sticking doors and windows, you might have a concrete settlement problem. Our use of polyurethane foam for concrete floor leveling is a long-lasting, cost-effective alternative to self-leveling treatments.
Has your concrete pool deck seen better days? In areas around the pool, trip and fall hazards from cracked, uneven concrete can be especially dangerous. This can also allow water to pool and create slippery conditions. Thankfully, PolyLevel® can raise your concrete pool deck back to its original position and help restore your backyard pool area into the backyard 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.
