Concrete Leveling In Aurora, IL

Living in Aurora, IL? Do you have sidewalks that are lifting up, concrete slabs unlevel, or any trip hazards giving you grief? You need concrete leveling using polyjacking, and you need it from The Real Seal.

Why Does Concrete Settle?

There are many reasons concrete can settle, such as:

  • Poor drainage
  • Bad soil compaction
  • Difficult site conditions
  • Invasive tree roots


Two of the most common factors for settling concrete is:

  • When water from gutters washes dirt out from underneath your sidewalk, driveway, or any other concrete slab.
  • One major factor concrete settles has to do with expansive soil. This clay-rich soil expands when it becomes saturated with water and shrinks when it dries out. This growing-shrinking cycle can cause your concrete to shift.

Aurora, IL, Concrete Leveling Using Polyjacking

The soil beneath your concrete slab must be strong. If the soil is weak, the concrete slab will sink again. Injecting polyurethane foam underneath the slab will support the slab and reinforce the soil.

The polyjacking process:

Step 1: Dime-sized holes are drilled in the affected concrete.

Step 2: Polyurethane foam is injected underneath the slab.

Step 3: The foam will then expand beneath the concrete, lifting the slab.

The polyurethane foam we use will not decompose or erode. It’s nonorganic and won’t move if water washes against it. Polyurethane foam can be used to level and lift:

The Benefits of Polyjacking

Other methods of concrete leveling, such as mudjacking is ineffective. And waiting for a new concrete slab to dry can take days. Polyjacked concrete can be used just 15 minutes after the foam is injected. The Real Seal provides Chicago area polyjacking services that can be completed in a matter of minutes, not days!
