Using PolyLEVEL, an expansive polyurethane foam we lift and level sunken concrete slabs. The foam expands beneath the surface of the concrete lifting the sunken concrete slab. The foam cures over the course of a day leaving a powerful and lightweight foundation beneath the slab. PolyLEVEL is the preferred method over traditional forma of mudjacking or slab jacking.
A homeowner in Covington, Ohio called The Basement Doctor of Cincinnati regarding several bowing walls in her basement. There is water seeping into the basement through the areas where the walls have shifted.
Donny, our Certified Inspector, met with the homeowner and discovered the walls were in urgent need of being stabilized, along with some waterproofing that needs to be done there. The homeowner decided to first start with getting the walls stabilized and to tackle the waterproofing at a later date.
Donny recommended the installation of several PowerBraces to be installed. These PowerBraces are our patented zinc-coated, I-beam used to stabilize foundation walls that are bowing. In the first three photos, you can see the bowing of the walls. In the last photo, you can see some of the PowerBraces that were installed. The wall is now stable. The PowerBraces can be tightened over time and can potentially straighten the walls.
