Thousands of Happy Customers
Stop looking for a concrete leveling company and use Peter and his crew at Concrete Hero. They are kind people, expert tradesmen, and equally great communicators.

Highly recommend!Edit Dec 2022: After first snowfall and into the winter season, the new garage floor is great, and my sidewalk leveling made it much easier to shovel. Very glad I had this work done!

Concrete Hero FAQs

Sure does or else we would have not been in business so long. Although it may seem like an unfamiliar process, concrete experts have been applying leveling techniques successfully for more than 90 years. Concrete can be lifted and leveled reliably using techniques known as slab jacking, and these repairs are effective for most customers in need.  The method of choice for lifting and leveling concrete involves injecting polyurethane foam below the concrete to lift and stabilize the slab.  Polyurethane concrete lifting (a.k.a – Polylift) is the only method we use due to its effectiveness and longevity.

Yes absolutely. We have the tools and the experience necessary to raise specific sections of concrete to make them level with the rest of the surface once again using high-density polyurethane foam. We work on slabs that are less than an inch off up to four or more inches with success.  In fact we were one of the first companies in IL to offer this advanced service.

No home repair will last forever, and concrete leveling is the same. However, our polymer material is water-proof, light weight and will not break-down or wash away like other materials such as sand and cement is known too.  A professionally installed geo-technical foam can last just as long, if not longer, as the concrete if the slab is properly maintained and there are no underlying issues such as water intrusion.

Concrete Hero provides concrete lifting, leveling and coating services from Naperville all the way up to Buffalo Grove and everywhere in between such as Arlington HeightsBartlettElginWheaton, Aurora, Palatine, Barrington, Batavia, Geneva and St Charles.

It’s difficult to say what the average cost to lift concrete with polyurethane because it depends on what you need lifted and how high it needs to go.  Most lifting companies in IL require a starting price of around $500 and that will most likely cover the cost for a couple sections of walkway or one section of driveway.  A general rule of thumb is that concrete lifting services are around half the cost of replacement.

Concrete sealing is a process of protecting concrete surfaces from damage caused by water, sun, and other environmental factors. The sealant forms a barrier that prevents water and other liquids from penetrating into the surface, which can eventually cause cracks, chips, and other structural damage. Additionally, it can also help protect against freeze-thaw cycles which can cause further deterioration over time. It’s important to keep in mind that not all concrete sealers are created equal – many will only offer short-term protection while some may provide lasting protection for up to 10 years or more depending on the type of sealer used. When considering a sealer for your concrete project be sure to do your research and find out what kind of protection they offer as well as how often they need to be applied in order to maintain optimal performance.

Yes, it is possible to repair cracks in concrete. The method of repair depends on the size, depth, and location of the crack. For smaller hairline cracks or surface cracking in concrete, a professional can use an epoxy injection system to seal the crack and prevent further damage. Once injected into the crack, this material will form a bond with the surrounding concrete and prevent water from entering.

For larger cracks or deeper damage to concrete structures such as foundations or slabs, a professional may need to cut away any loose/weakened sections before filling with new cement-based materials such as mortar patching compounds which can be troweled into place until level with the existing surface of the slab. In some cases, foam injections are also used for added structural stability when repairing larger damaged areas in foundation walls or slabs. Regardless of size or scope however all repairs should always be done under supervision by a professional contractor experienced in such projects for best results.
