This homeowner in Somerset, MA was very concerned about the condition of the concrete walkway at the front of her home. The concrete slabs were cracked in various sections, leaning and sloping unevenly, and overall were unsightly and a tripping hazard. This before and after photo set shows the drastic change and the effectiveness of our concrete repair methods. Products installed included PolyLevel, a polymer foam injected beneath the concrete slabs, and NexusPro, a silicone based caulking which sealed all the joints and cracks.
The concrete apron leading to a raised garage floor was cracked at the mid point and sunk about 2-3in on one side. The slab is 8 feet long and 18 ft wide with a slope up of 1ft from the gravel drive to the wooden garage floor. The slab is cracked and sunken on the left half, which has been undermined by poor drainage from the adjoining barn.

This concrete patio was sinking because of excessive water coming off of the roof during heavy rain storms. The Erickson production crew installed PolyLevel and NexusPro to to lift, level, and seal the concrete patio. Water flowing over the patio would now flow away from the home and over the edge rather than beneath the concrete.
Walkways and sidewalks are exposed to a lot of wear and tear. When the soil supporting the concrete becomes weak, the concrete can crack and sink. There are many things that can create a void beneath the slab, such as erosion from rainwater or gutter runoff, or a tree root that has rotted over time. Dirt fill underneath the slab that has not been well compacted can also create voids beneath the concrete. Regardless of what’s caused your sidewalk to sink, we can fix it!

Some areas require home and business owners to maintain the sidewalks adjoining their property. If someone trips and falls on the sidewalk in front of your home, you might be liable. It’s important to check your town or city’s sidewalk regulations.
Concrete lifting with PolyLevel® is a practical, affordable solution for concrete sidewalk repair. In addition to taking less time and costing you less, concrete leveling is far less disruptive to the landscaping. If the concrete is ripped out and repoured, the grass can be damaged from the heavy equipment and the removal of the old slab. With PolyLevel® injection lifting, there's almost no waiting for the concrete to cure before you can walk on it. With concrete replacement, it usually takes about a day for the concrete to cure.
