An experienced Acculevel project manager will arrive at the property and perform a full inspection of any of the reported symptoms. Measurements, drawings and other details such as photographs may be taken. A contract outlining the proposed work will be provided.
Holes only slightly larger than a US dime are drilled into the concrete slab in strategic locations. Sometimes, slabjacking holes can be better hidden between grout lines.
A special injection gun is used to pump foam in a controlled manner underneath the concrete slab. The foam rapidly expands filling the void underneath the concrete and will cause lift.
Once the concrete has been measured and leveled, the small holes where the injection gun was used are patched with concrete and sealed. Any improperly extended downspouts or other triggers may need corrected to prevent further damage.
If you think you may need Slabjacking, it is possible you are experiencing some or all of the following symptoms. If you are not, these symptoms may appear over time if left untreated. It is not uncommon that a homeowner is requiring several services at once and may have symptoms that are inconsistent with the following graphic.

Cracked Foundation Walls

Subject to the terms and conditions of customer's contract with Acculevel, if the concrete slab is over 5 years old at the time Acculevel initially performs its work then if the concrete slab settles more than 1/4" inch within 5 years after Acculevel performs its work, then Acculevel will re-pump the void under the concrete slab, one additional time at no additional to the Customer. A re-pump consists of using the same holes originally used to pump and raise the concrete slab. Acculevel will not re-pump the concrete slab if: (i) the Customer does not seal all cracks and joints on the concrete slabs and maintain backfill along the concrete slabs involved, (ii) if resettling occurs as a result of flooding, or (iii) resettling occurs as a result of any other acts of God, as determined in Acculevel's sole discretion.
