Sinking concrete around a pool is a common problem that creates tripping hazards.
Has the concrete surrounding your pool dipped or settled, creating a hazardous uneven surface? Is there a protruding concrete edge where one section of the slab has settled below another?
The foundation repair specialists at Ogburn Construction are especially well-equipped to make these types of pool deck repairs.
What's more, our innovative PolyLevel® concrete lifting and leveling technique is faster and more affordable than pool deck replacement. It's also a better option than pool deck resurfacing.

Many concrete pool decks are prone to settling because of the pool construction process. The backfill soil that's added around the pool excavation will not be as dense or well-compacted as the undisturbed soil. When a heavy concrete slab is poured around the pool, loose soil will often compress under the slab's weight, causing sections of the concrete to sink or settle.
Some contractors still use the old-school repair for settled concrete. They use heavy equipment to demolish the cracked, settled sections of concrete around your swimming pool, and pour a new concrete deck. With concrete replacement you often get a damaged yard and a pool that's off limits until the new concrete hardens and cures. Our concrete leveling method saves you time and money, and won't disrupt your landscaping.
Injecting PolyLevel expanding foam beneath a settled pool deck will raise the concrete back to proper level and also strengthen the soil so that the problem won't recur.
PolyLevel is a high-density expanding foam that our technicians can use to raise settled concrete. The two-part polyurethane foam mixture is injected through small holes drilled in the settled concrete. Our installers are trained to control the injection process so that just enough foam is used to re-level the concrete deck. Because the foam's expanding action fills voids in loose soil, this concrete leveling technique improves the soil's stability and load-bearing characteristics. You can feel confident that settlement won't occur again.
