Concrete Repair Photo Album: Concrete Driveway Slab and Crack Repair in Goldboro, NC
After coming across a Southeast Foundation & Crawl Space Repair TV commercial, this Goldsboro, NC homeowner called our office looking for a solution for their cracked and soil-eroded concrete driveway problems. A free, no-cost obligation inspection was set for, concrete repair expert Larry M. to assess the customer's driveway issues. Upon a thorough inspection, Larry recommended the PolyLevel System in addition to a joint sealant to repair and level the concrete driveway.
Erosion is a common cause of sunken concrete. Erosion washes away soil from under your driveway, creating a void or space under the concrete slab. Your driveway can begin to sink in areas where the soil has been washed out. Concrete Repair foreman, Jecelynn W. repaired the unlevel driveway by using the PolyLevel System. PolyLevel is a fast, effective option for repairing your sunken concrete driveway. First, Jecelynn will drill small holes in the slab. She then injects high-density polyurethane through the holes. The polymer will spread beneath the slab and lift it while filling all voids.
To fix the cracks in the driveway, Jecelynn uses the NexusPro Solution. NexusPro is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks specially formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. First, the cracks are drilled, smoothed, and prepared with non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the NexusPro sealant is inserted in the prepared crack or control joint. Finally, the cracks are detailed with a thin layer of native sand, giving the concrete a uniform, clean appearance.
The homeowner was very happy with the appearance of their driveway when the project was complete. The result is a waterproofed repair that's much more permanent than many other common concrete repair methods.
In addition to a quick installation time, cure time is also fast!!
Once the curing process ends, the homeowners can enjoy their new level, safe, and stable driveway.

Soil Erosion Under Slab
PolyLevel & NexusPro Joint Sealant will be installed to repair the slab and patio cracks
As soil underneath a concrete slab shrinks, settles, or washes away, this leaves empty space, or voids, beneath the slab. With the soil no longer supporting the slab, the concrete will sink, creating an uneven surface.
Leveling slab before PolyLevel
Polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete to fill voids and raise the slab.
Once inserted, the foam expands filling all voids under the slab.
Lift and Level
Once the foam is dried, the edges are smoothed give a clean and finished appearance.
