Repair Your Sidewalk for a Safe & Even Surface

If you notice any cracks or uneven slabs on your sidewalk, the problem will likely get worse if it’s ignored. Not only does it decrease your home’s curb appeal, but it also creates a dangerous trip hazard that you’re responsible for as the homeowner. 

Sometimes people are under the impression that you need to completely replace your sidewalk, when in fact you can simply repair it for the same result at a fraction of the cost! At MidAmerica Basement Systems, we can lift your uneven sidewalk with PolyLevel® for a safe, even surface.

If you need sidewalk repair, contact your local experts at MidAmerica! We proudly serve customers in Cedar Rapids, Peoria, Waterloo, Davenport, and areas nearby. 


Sinking concrete sidewalk

What Causes Sidewalks to Crack and Become Uneven?

The main culprit that causes sidewalk damage is the soil beneath the slabs. As the soils become saturated with water, it can lead to soil washout and create voids. The soil then becomes unsupportive to the weight of the concrete and causes it to sink into the ground, or even crack. In order to permanently fix the problem, you must address the problem soils to avoid the same problem in the future. 

Here is an example of a sunken sidewalk, which has created a trip hazard as well as a place for water to pool up and seep below the slab. Our team can quickly and easily fix this problem with PolyLevel®! 

Repair Your Sidewalk with PolyLevel®

PolyLevel® is a polyurethane foam that instantly expands and hardens to lift your sunken slab back into place. Installation is non-invasive as we drill a small dime-sized hole into the sunken slab to inject PolyLevel® into the soil below. Once it’s cured, which can only take as little as 15 minutes, it provides a completely waterproof and permanent solution to avoid future slab settlement.

Restoring the walkway with concrete leveling

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.
