Uneven concrete can pose safety hazards to pedestrians of all ages. With PolyLevel injections offered by MidAmerica Basement Systems, the hassle of concrete leveling is made simple. PolyLevel is a lightweight, quick-drying, solution for leveling sinking concrete. Poly ports, roughly 5/8-inch in size, allow for the polyurethane to be injected under the concrete slabs, filling the voids, and lifting and leveling them back to proper elevations. The lightweight foam offers less pressure on the ground, providing a more permanent solution over other techniques. The quick dry time of PolyLevel also allows for accessibility to the area the same day as injections.
