My basement walls had big cracks and were leaning in. I was concerned that I could be looking at collapsed walls in the future. Lucas and Steven Selleck, Dalton and Maleke Smith took good care of my problem clearly recognizing the actual cause. I had the basement waterproofed by another company 10 years prior. They had failed to install weep holes in the walls and although I no longer had water in the basement the walls were filled with water which was affecting the wall structure. By the time the crew left I had confidence that my walls were secure and water pressure relieved. The crew was professional, knowledgeable and explained what was happening and why. I saw with my own eyes the stream of water coming out of the walls. Now it is repaired and I am so very happy that Bakers waterproofing was the company I called and selected for the job. I feel much relieved. Thank you Bakers Waterproofing!

Is Concrete Lifting the Right Solution for Me?

Having uneven, cracked concrete is not only an ugly sight to see, but it can also lead to potential accidents. Sunken concrete can cause your home’s external stairs to sag, which can use you or someone else to potentially take a misstep and fall. Cracked concrete can also cause you and others to trip and fall, leading to a potential fall and serious injury. Cracks in your garage floor can lead to a wet garage where mold can form, and you are susceptible to slipping on standing water.

These floor cracks can also cause your basement to leak. That is why it is important to have concrete lifting experts evaluate your home’s concrete for anything that might need repair. It is important to act quickly if you see cracks in your driveway, sidewalk, or garage as these issues can lead to more costly problems. We offer FREE, no-obligation inspections, so you can be sure something is wrong before you spend any money.

FAQS

Much like the basement and crawl space solutions, many of the foundation and concrete lifting repair options tend to overlap each other. Some of these include the various pier systems. Foundation repair experts may recommend push piers, helical piers, or slab piers depending on the type of damage and foundation you have. They also differ in their shape, installation, and is dependent on the soil type of your home.

There are also many reinforcement systems for strictly foundation walls. The SettleStop Wall Anchor System is installed deep into your soil to support weakened foundation walls from the outside. For a less invasive solution, there is also the SettleStop IntelliBrace™ that can be installed directly onto the inside of your foundation wall and can work to prevent further damage and may even straighten it over time. The SettleStop Carbon Fiber Wall Reinforcing System is ideal for those who have less space or those who want to simultaneously pull wall cracks closed as well.

For concrete lifting, SettleStop PolyRenewal™ injection foam is dually functional. It is an incredibly lightweight foam that expands and can support even the heaviest of concrete slabs and even lift it back into its original position over time. It is also waterproof, so it can protect against soil erosion and thus, soil compaction, and concrete settlement.

Yes. In fact, we recommend that our PolyRenewal™ customers seal the cracks and joints of their newly lifted concrete with our Caulk Joints solution, as it will help protect their concrete for many years to come.

Call or click for an appointment. One of our design specialists will come to your home and inspect your concrete. He or she will then sit down with you and explain what caused your issues, how they can be fixed and exactly what it will cost.

SettleStop PolyRenewal™ foam injection is one of the most effective concrete lifting products on the market today. Compared to older methods like mudjacking, polyurethane foam is less messy, less likely to overburden already weak soil, cures quickly, and easier for skilled professionals to install.

During a professional inspection, our experts at Baker’s Wateproofing will determine the area and amount needed for installation. When the crew arrives to lift your concrete, here’s a look at their process:

  • Small, penny-sized holes are drilled into the affected concrete.
  • Injection ports are placed in these holes.
  • The two-part foam is mixed.
  • The foam is injected under the concrete, expanding to fill voids between the soil and slab.
  • The slab lifts back to the proper height as the foam cures (within 15 minutes).
  • The injection ports are removed.
  • The drilled holes are filled and sealed, as are any visible cracks.

SettleStop PolyRenewal™ polyurethane foam injection is one of the most common and popular concrete lifting processes on the market today. We at Baker’s Waterproofing stand behind this product as a high-quality, efficient alternative to heritage repair processes like mudjacking. Whereas mudjacking uses a heavy, porous slurry that’s pumped into the void beneath a surface in order to create pressure and lift, SettleStop PolyRenewal™ uses a lightweight, waterproof foam that creates an expansive force on its own.

The difference between the materials used is crucial here, because it makes all the difference to the effectiveness, stability, and safety of the process. The slurry used in mudjacking runs the risk of overburdening already weak soil and increases the risk of recurring sinking and damage. Polyurethane foam, by contrast, is very light in proportion to its strength, meaning that it will not add weight to already weak soil.

Better yet, polyurethane foam is waterproof and inert. This means that it will not absorb water, which would add weight, and it will not leach chemicals into the earth underneath your Pittsburgh home and its exterior surfaces. This is better for your property and your yard, of course, but also for your health and wellbeing in the long-run (especially if you grow vegetables or fruits in your garden). So, in short, yes: SettleStop PolyRenewal™ is an incredibly safe and effective concrete lifting method that will provide you with great results and very little risk.

Yes. PolyRenewal™ is made from an environmentally friendly material that is waterproof and won’t degrade over time. This means it won’t leach harmful chemicals into the surrounding soil.

Why Is Concrete Lifting Needed?

sinking and uneven concrete

Preventing Injuries

It is very easy for a person to trip on cracked or uneven concrete. Falling on concrete is a painful experience that can cause minor to major injuries. This can be a liability to you as a homeowner. When concrete connected to your external stairs begins to sink, it can cause your stairs to shift quite a bit. This means that you or anyone else going up or down your stairs could easily trip not noticing the shift in the stairs. Garage floor cracks can lead to water coming through, causing another slipping hazard. Protect yourself and your houseguests by keeping your sidewalk, driveway, and garage floors free of cracks.

Home for Sale

Increasing Property Value

If you plan on selling your property, any potential buyers will notice any cracks in your sidewalk, garage, and driveway. To increase your home’s value on the market, you must fix any unsightly cracks or unevenness in the concrete around your property. As mentioned above, cracks can cause accidents. This makes your home a safety hazard, which can deter prospective buyers. Cracks can also cause water to pool, creating another tripping hazard, as well as water damage to things you may have stored in your home’s garage. Seeing standing water will almost certainly scare away those interested in your home.

Heavy Rain outside flooding

Preventing Water Leaks & Standing Water

Water leaks can come through any voids in your concrete. Standing water seeping through your concrete slabs becomes a slipping hazard. If water comes in from cracks in your garage floor, then your personal possessions are at risk of being damaged by water. Mold and mildew can also begin to form in the humid environment of your garage. Mold can cause harm to you, your family, and your belongings. That is why properly lifting and sealing your cracked concrete can keep your home free of water damage and your family safe from health issues caused by mold.
