Greg B. of Land O’ Lakes, FL called LRE Foundation Repair looking for a solution to his home's uneven concrete after noticing his driveway, sidewalk, and patio were no longer level. After completing a whole home inspection, it was clear Greg’s uneven concrete was not the only issue. The driveway had not been sealed, causing stains that detracted from the home’s appearance. To remedy Greg’s concrete problems, LRE’s 3-part concrete protection system was recommended. The 3-part concrete protection system involves a product called PolyLevel which is a fast-expanding polymer foam that is used to permanently stabilize and level concrete. After, a tinted sealer called DecoShiled is applied to the concrete to protect and seal the concrete while adding a nice even color. To finish, all of the cracks and joints are sealed with NexusPro to eliminate water from penetrating underneath the concrete. After the work was completed, Greg was pleased to see his homes concrete free of trip hazards and increased curb appeal.

Linda A. from Alachua, FL, was worried about the concrete walkway leading to her front porch, which had sunk significantly, creating a tripping hazard. She contacted LRE Foundation Repair to address the issue before any injury could occur. An LRE Design Specialist inspected the concrete and found that the soil beneath the slab had become loose, causing it to sink. The specialist recommended using our PolyLevel system to raise the concrete to an even, uniform level with the porch. The LRE team injected the PolyLevel underneath the existing concrete and successfully brought it back to its proper level. Linda can now have peace of mind knowing that the trip hazard has been permanently eliminated and stabilized, ensuring the safety of her and her family.
Robert B. of Ormond Beach, Florida called LRE Foundation Repair after growing concerned about large cracks forming in his pool deck. LRE completed an inspection of the property only to discover large voids had formed underground where armadillos had previously dug their dens. LRE formulated a plan to remedy the unstable soil situation by using PolyLevel injection around the pool deck. PolyLevel is an environmentally safe, expanding polymer material that is injected through small holes drilled in the concrete deck. As the material flows through loose soils, it expands on contact filling voids and creating stable ground. In addition, PolyLevel is able to lift concrete back level again, closing the cracks that concerned this homeowner. Once the project was complete, the homeowner was thrilled that his pool deck was crack-free and level once more.
Aran and Leann C. were growing tired of having to continuously patch and paint over cracks on their Gainesville, Florida home. Looking for a permanent solution before repainting their house, they decided to give us a call. Upon inspection, our specialist determined that the expansive clay soils under the home were causing too much movement and ultimately, settlement damage. A customized solution was designed using helical piers. Our team was able to successfully transfer the weight of the home to the helical piers, prompting those stairstep cracks to close, while leaving the home permanently stabilized. Once complete, Aran and Leann were happy to hear their problem had been solved for good - now they can finally repaint their family home.
