Lifting and Leveling Settling Concrete in Caldwell, OH

Lifting and Leveling Settling Concrete in Caldwell, OH

Before After
Lifting and Leveling Settling Concrete in Caldwell, OH Lifting and Leveling Settling Concrete in Caldwell, OH

Homeowners in Caldwell, OH, hadn’t lived in their house for very long when they started to notice exterior problems on their property were worsening. Quite a few sections of concrete along the front walkway, driveway, and back patio were cracking and settling.

While it is common for concrete to fail over time, cracking and settling slabs often affect the safety and appearance of the property. Ugly gaps will form between uneven slabs, which also present tripping hazards. Water can also collect in these settling and gapping areas, and potentially seep inside the house.

These issues concerned the homeowners, so they wanted to address them once and for all. After they came across information about Ohio Basement Authority online, they were eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help them. After meeting with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the concrete, the owners were ready for one of our crews to install a unique repair solution.

We used the PolyLevel System to lift, level and stabilize the concrete. Very small, minimally invasive holes were first drilled into the problematic concrete slabs. After injection ports were placed in these holes, special equipment was used to inject high-density polyurethane underneath the concrete. The material expands to fill any voids, and this allows for the precise lifting and leveling of the slabs. NexusPro Joint Sealant also was used to caulk the older cracks and gaps, as well as help protect the newly leveled concrete.

PolyLevel is lightweight, but very durable. It will not wash out from under the concrete, and it has a quick cure time of 15 minutes.

The homeowners are happy this state of the art repair was used to help them create a safer living environment.

PolyLevel™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Caldwell home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel. Call us today to learn more.

Concrete Lifting and Leveling in Caldwell, OH

After living in their house for one year, homeowners in Caldwell, OH, started to notice problems outside the house getting worse. Several areas of concrete along their back patio, front walkway and driveway were cracking and settling.

This resulted in unsightly and unsafe gaps that presented tripping hazards. Water also collected in these areas that sloped towards the house, and the homeowners worried this water could seep inside.

This involved injecting high-density polyurethane underneath the cracking and settling concrete slabs. The material expands and fills any voids, which allows for the exact lifting and leveling of the concrete.

Leveling Sagging Floors in Caldwell, OH, with SmartJacks

After living in her house for more than 40 years, a homeowner in Caldwell, OH, began to notice a potential structural problem in her house. Some areas of the floors seemed to be sagging and unlevel. These issues could be the result of foundation settlement or improper supports beneath the floors.

The homeowner wanted to fix these problems once and for all, so she began to research how to best address them. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company through online resources like Home Advisor. She then met with one of our inspectors who assessed the condition of the floors, as well as the support system in the crawl space underneath the house. Several floor joists were failing to properly support the above floors, so he recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews then installed several SmartJacks in the crawl space. SmartJacks appear similar to typical jack posts, but they are superior in many ways. These heavy-duty supports are made of galvanized steel, which enhances their durability and makes them resistant to rust, corrosion and rot. SmartJacks permanently stabilize the above floors and offer the best opportunity to lift them back to level. They are designed to stop settlement, but can easily be adjusted if any settling occurs.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing this trustworthy solution has helped her create a safe and stable living environment.

Fixing and Protecting Problematic Foundation Walls in Caldwell, OH

After living in their house for many years, homeowners in Caldwell, OH, began to grow concerned with worsening structural issues. Some areas of their foundation walls were severely cracking and appeared to also be tilting inward.

The owners decided they had enough of worrying about these problems, and they were motivated to have them fixed once and for all. They contacted Ohio Basement Authority after seeing our TV ads, and they were eager to meet with one of our inspectors to learn more about how we could help them. The inspector assessed the condition of the walls and then recommended one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

One of our crews installed several Geo-Lock Channel Anchors on the problematic foundation walls. These anchors permanently stabilize the foundation walls, prevent further cracking and inward bowing, and offer the best opportunity to straighten the walls. The vertical anchors also are bolted to the floor for additional support, and the system can be adjusted for wall improvement.

The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable repair project was completed so their home will be a safe and stable living environment for many years to come.

Repairing Cracked & Bowing Walls in Caldwell, OH

A home in Caldwell, OH had bowing basement walls with cracks about 1 1/2-inch to 2-inch cracks, and water is coming in through them. He was concerned about the water and visual appeal of his home, but also the stability of his failing foundation walls. He called Ohio Basement Authority for help with all of these problems.

One of our certified inspectors visited the home to determine the best fix. He suggested performing an excavate and push, as well as installing wall anchors.

Geo-Lock Wall Anchors are strong earth anchors which are embedded into undisturbed soil away from the foundation walls. These anchors are attached to steel wall plates with long, galvanized rods. These rods are tightened, which pulls the foundation toward its original state.

An excavate and push involves removing the soil around a home to expose the foundation walls, and physically pushing the walls into a more upright and stable position.

The homeowner agreed to have these things done. One of our expert installation crews came in and performed the excavate and push, as well as installed the Geo-Lock Anchors. The soil around the home was carefully re-filled, and these reliable repairs have stabilized these once leaking and cracked walls.

The homeowner is very happy with the results, and is no longer worried about the state of his home.
