This homeowner in Acton, Massachusetts, was experiencing water pooling in their garage after every rainstorm. The water that was coming into the garage from the driveway was causing the foundation to sink. Design Specialist Jason Furrey came to the home to inspect the homeowner's concerns. Jason confirmed that there was a leak in the roof of the garage causing water to come into the garage and settle on the garage floor. Crew Lead Nick Melo and his team came to the home and used PolyLevel to lift the sinking garage floor.
This homeowner in Lexington, Massachusetts recently purchased her childhood home. She is planning on doing manageable renovations to increase the value of the home. She had completed a couple of renovations already but now has started working on the garage. Water from the driveway has been entering the garage and has caused some damage. She decided to call EFS for a free inspection.
Design Specialist Brian Swindell inspected the foundation and garage of the home. Brian discovered that there is some void below the slab in the garage that he recommend filling before attempting to lift the slab. To help stop the water from entering the garage Brian recommended installing Trench Drain at the mouth of the garage with a downspout.
Crew Lead Nick Melo and his team lifted the mouth of the garage to level and then filled the void under the slab. After the PolyLevel was injected, the team installed the Trench Drain at the mouth of the garage.
This homeowner in Manchester, NH had concerns with a section of his house which was built on a concrete slab. He could feel the slab moving and felt it was hollow beneath in some spots.

This home in Danvers, MA was built on a slab. Overtime, water caused soil under the slab to erode, creating voids. The homeowners were preparing for a remodeling project and noticed the slab had settled 2-3 inches in some places, and so needed to be raised again. Erickson Foundation Supportworks installed PolyLEVEL to stabilize the slab.
This home in Hampton, NH was built on a slab, which over the years was gradually settling. PolyLEVEL was an ideal solution to lift the slab and fill the voids underneath, while doing minimal damage to the inside (holes drill through the slab). The slab had settled up to an inch, putting the floor out of level, and PolyLEVEL easily lifted it back into a level position.
Concrete slabs are often poured on wet, weak, or poorly compacted soil. Over time, this will lead to settlement of the slab, causing uneven floors or cracking. Inside your home, your floor will pull away from walls and doorways, creating gaps at the seams.
This not only creates an uncomfortable home with tripping hazards, it also significantly impacts property value. When prospective buyers have to deal with foundation issues, it can make selling a home very challenging.
