A Little About Concrete Hero
Hi, I’m Pete!
I, along with my father Sal are the owners of Concrete Hero. We want to take a moment to tell you our story.
Sal has been working with concrete since he first arrived here from Italy in 1972. And in 2008 after being a high school teacher for 5 years, I decided to partner with my family to start a concrete construction company. Our company initially specialized in replacing concrete throughout the Chicagoland area.
Over the years we received more and more calls from customers looking to repair sunken concrete. After some research, I discovered the process of polyurethane injection (a.k.a. PolyLift) to lift and stabilize concrete. I was very impressed with the process, and the results, when compared to the older process of mudjacking. In 2014 we became one of the first companies in Illinois to offer this quick, long-lasting repair at a fraction of the cost of a replacement. It became an instant hit with customers.
We also noticed many homeowners neglected or were not aware of the importance of maintaining their concrete, which can prevent costly repairs and/or replacement. So we started offering concrete protection solutions such as sealing and caulking. We also began offering concrete coatings to customers looking to protect and restore their concrete garage floors without having to do a full replacement.
Our company has evolved from being a concrete construction company, to a company dedicated to concrete restoration and maintenance. We are passionate about being able to offer customers solutions that extend the life of their concrete, saving them time and money.
Thank you for considering us and we hope to earn your business!
Our mission is to help property owners extend the life and value of their concrete by offering premium products and exceptional service.

Why Repair and Protect Concrete?
Concrete is amazing stuff but it doesn’t last forever, especially if its not maintained. For many, when they see sunken, cracked and worn concrete the first instinct is to replace it. At Concrete Hero, we feel that’s not always the best solution for a few reasons.
Save Time & Headaches: Replacing concrete is a major construction project that involves permits, heavy equipment, possible damage to surrounding landscape and buildings and multiple days to complete.
Save Money: Concrete leveling, repairing and sealing concrete reduces the chance of needing to replace it. With the average driveway replacement being around $6,000-$8000, A small investment in our services prevents the need for costly work in the future.
Save the Environment: Many don’t realize this but the concrete industry is one of the largest producers of carbon dioxide gases creating up to 5% of worldwide man-made emissions of this gas. You can help save the environment by saving your concrete.
