This homeowner contacted HomeSpec to get his concrete driveway repaired after putting it off for many years. Several slabs were sunken and cracked, causing a tripping hazard. He needed a permanent solution.
Our team used PolyLevel to solve this problem. We injected an expanding 2-part polymer rigid foam under the concrete slabs to raise and level them by filling in gaps caused by soil shrinkage and washout. Then we sealed all of the cracks and joints with our NexusPro sealant. Then the concrete was sealed with our SealantPro to protect and preserve it. This prevents discoloration, flaking, and cracking over time. The homeowner was so happy with how his driveway transformed!

Our crew used PolyLevel to permanently raise the slabs back into place. We also sealed all of the joints with our NexusPro joint sealant - leaving the garage floor looking brand new. The sealant protects the concrete from soil compaction and washout to prevent more sinking! See more photos here.
A sump pump was installed in a home that had a water issue when it rained. The problem had persisted for years, so we installed an interior drainage system.
The porch on this Hartland home was sinking and pulling away from the foundation - and it was quite unsightly. So the homeowners contacted the professionals here at HomeSpec.
Thankfully, our PolyLevel system quickly and permanently solves problems like this. The PolyLevel foam just had to be injected underneath the concrete, then it expanded and filled in the gaps caused by soil erosion and shrinkage. As it expanded, the porch was raised up back into its original position.
This Goodrich homeowner was working on the curb appeal of his home before putting it on the market. He knew how important curb appeal is when it comes to selling a home - it attracts the attention of home buyers and adds value. But the walkway slabs leading to the porch were lopsided with messy weeds growing in-between the cracks. The concrete need some TLC!
HomeSpec came to the rescue with our innovative PolyLevel system. The slabs were leveled, sealed, and ready to go the same day. The joints were also sealed to prevent weeds from growing again. The homeowner was happy he hired the right contractors to complete his concrete job!
This homeowner contacted HomeSpec because the walkway leading to their house was very uneven - causing tripping hazards. The porch was also cracked and sinking and needed to be repaired.
Our team solved this issue permanently with our PolyLevel system. Through a dime-sized hole, we injected a polyurethane foam underneath the concrete. As it expanded, the slabs were lifted up back into place. The joints and cracks were then sealed with our strong silicone-based sealant. And the walkway was even once more!
Buying a home is a stressful enough process in itself, but when you buy a home with structural issues - that's a whole different level of stress. These homeowners bought an old home in Clifford, Michigan, but there was a big problem - a foundation problem.
The floors above the basement were sagging, which was caused by insufficient support below. There were wooden support posts and beams that were deteriorating and failing to support the weight of the home. They needed to be replaced, and more needed to be added to ensure they won't sag again over time. The experts at HomeSpec assured these homeowners that we could fix their problem permanently.
Our crew installed over a dozen new steel beams and support posts. The floors were raised back to their original position and the posts will prevent the floors from sagging in the future. This support is crucial to the structural integrity of the home - and now these homeowners don't have to worry, but instead can enjoy their new home!
For many people, the concrete around their home is just an absolute eyesore. Cracked and sunken concrete negatively affects the curb appeal of the home, and even creates tripping hazards. Most people don't consider fixing it a priority because they think the task will be too much of a headache. That's what this Genesee homeowner thought about his driveway project. There were many cracked slabs, and there was a large gap between the house and the driveway.
But when a friend told him about HomeSpec's PolyLevel system, the homeowner finally decided to get his concrete repaired. After an inspector came out to see the damage and provide a proposal, our concrete specialists got to work.
With the PolyLevel system, a small penny-sized hole is drilled into the concrete. Then the expanding 2-part polymer rigid foam is injected underneath. As it expands, it fills in the voids between the soil and the slab. This raises the slab up and levels it with the rest of the concrete. And BOOM - it's finished! This is an environmentally safe, quick, non-invasive, cost-effective way to repair concrete.
Several slabs were cracked, so we filled them in with our NexusPro sealant. The homeowner was very pleased with the quick and easy process, and with how much better his driveway looks now!
