Foundation Repair Case Studies: PolyLevel Lifts and Seals Foundation Crack in Shrewsbury, MA

Wednesday, July 17th, 2019 by Samantha Gray

Challenge

This homeowner was aware his foundation had an issue for a long time but he just wasn't convinced it needed immediate attention until now - haven't we all experienced this in one way or another? Well, he has a lovely ranch style home but in the lower level there was a very large crack extending from the corner of a window near where the laundry units are and actually traveled all the way down the wall and across the floor to the opposite wall of the home's foundation! There was noticeable sinking and the crack was quite separated. The homeowner said it had been there around 30 years!

Solution

We immediately knew our PolyLevel Injection Foam was the perfect solution to this large cracked foundation. Our PolyLevel isn't as invassive and messy as its comparable solution called mudjacking. So we definitely prefer using this solution-as do our customers! We first drill 5/8" holes into the ground and then utilize a port to ensure clean and seamless injection of PolyLevel beneath the surface. Once beneath the surface the foam expands and lifts the foundation above- we guarantee the stabilization! We make sure to clean up and seal the holes with cement. After that the foundation is repaired with an incomparable waterproof solution that will prevent that crack from expanding and the foundation from sinking.
