Giving sunken concrete a lift. Injecting PolyLevel® expanding foam beneath a settled pool deck will raise the concrete back to proper level and also strengthen the soil so that the problem won’t recur.
Has the concrete surrounding your pool dipped or settled, creating a hazardous uneven surface? Is there a protruding concrete edge where one section of the slab has settled below another?
The foundation repair specialists at MidAmerica Basement Systems are especially well-equipped to make these types of pool deck repairs.
What’s more, our innovative PolyLevel® concrete lifting and leveling technique is faster and more affordable than pool deck replacement. It’s also a better option than pool deck resurfacing.

Many concrete pool decks are prone to settling because of the pool construction process. The backfill soil that’s added around the pool excavation will not be as dense or well-compacted as the undisturbed soil farther from the pool.
When a heavy concrete slab is poured around the pool, loose soil will often compress under the slab’s weight, causing sections of the concrete to sink or settle.
Over time, the ground and soil under concrete begins to shift and settle, leaving large voids. When voids are present, the concrete sinks and cracks due to lack of support. When this happens around concrete pool decks, it possesses safety hazards for those who access the pool. Injecting PolyLevel is the best solution to reduce the tripping hazards without damaging the pool itself. The lightweight material is less than 4lbs per cubic foot, reducing the stress that normal mudjacking (120lbs/cf) would place on the pool and existing soil. After the voids are filled, the concrete lifts and levels, reducing the tripping hazards, and becomes stable once again.
With Summer right around the corner, it’s time to prepare your pool for the warm weather. But is your deck safe and ready to endure all the activity that comes with a day by the pool? Unlevel concrete slabs pose a tripping hazard around the pool. With the help from MidAmerica Basement Systems, we can have your pool deck ready in less than a day. With the use of PolyLevel, concrete slabs will be precisely lifted and leveled in no time at all. PolyLevel has a quick dry time, so you can continue preparing your pool for the Summer season. PolyLevel is very lightweight, roughly 4-6lbs per cubic foot, so there is no added stress to the pool walls (where mudjacking slurry weighs in around 120lbs per cubic foot).
The old-school repair for settled concrete is still used by some contractors. They bring in heavy equipment, demolish the settled sections of the pool surround, and pour a new concrete deck. There may be damage to your yard, and the pool remains unusable until the new concrete has hardened and cured. PolyLevel® eliminates this expensive, disruptive and time-consuming process.
PolyLevel® is a high-density expanding foam that our technicians can use to raise settled concrete. The two-part polyurethane foam mixture is injected through small holes drilled in the settled concrete. Our installers are trained to control the injection process so that just enough foam is used to re-level the concrete deck. Because the foam’s expanding action fills voids in loose soil, this repair technique improves the soil’s stability and load-bearing characteristics. You can feel confident that settlement won’t occur again.
