Craig C. of Dana Point, California, noticed cracking in his stucco and drywall. After researching the issue he found Saber, and called for an estimate. Shortly after the call, an appointment was set for a Saber's Sales representative to evaluate the property. The finding was that the home had settlement, the interior evaluations showed a maximum variance of -1.6 inches across the area measured. So the recommendation was made to underpin the area as well as raise the foundation to support it from any future failure.
Saber scheduled a crew to go the home and resolve the issue. The project began by the crew marking out the nine pier locations, once the pier locations were marked the crew began digging to expose the footings of the property. Once the footings were exposed the equipment, for driving pipe, was set up. Once the pipe was driven to the proper depth, the brackets were mounted with hardware.
Once the hardware is installed on all the brackets the property is ready for the lift. The lift was completed and polyurethane was injected for added support. The cracks that had been formed prior to the stabilization, were traced and epoxied. Once the lift was complete the holes were back filled and an inspection of the property was completed.
There is no doubt that now Craig can have piece mind knowing that his property is stable and the value of his property is increased, due to the foundation repair.
Claire G, of Costa Mesa, California, was experiencing sever concrete settlement at her condo, she had noticed that the walkways had some serious cracks and were uneven, causing tripping hazards. The walls of her front porch were gapping and separating, making it very unsightly to look at. She did some research and found that Saber Foundations using the PolyLEVEL™ process was the most effective and affordable way for her problem to be resolved, after contacting the Saber office and getting a Sales Representative to her property to do an evaluation and a free estimate, she was satisfied with the finding and the estimates for repair. She made an appointment with the office to have a crew come and complete the work on her home.
The Saber crew was able to get the job done quickly and affordably, using the PolyLEVEL™ process, which is a two part foam that is injected into the ground to form a fill that is strong, yet light weight, waterproof and will not leak chemicals into the soils, because it does not react with soil or water. The PolyLEVEL™ also cures very quickly, and is adjustable. By adjusting the density and expansive force of the two-part foam allowing for a wide range of uses. The equipment used but the Saber crew is not bulky, which allows for easy access to confined places.
During this process one small hole was cored into the concrete, where the PolyLEVEL™ material was injected. Once the process was complete Claire, was able to see results immediately, the gapping in the walls were closed and the uneven walkways were level once again. Claire was very pleased with the results of the PolyLEVEL™ and with the professionalism of the Saber crew. Now Claire can once again enjoy being on the front porch of her condo.
Are you and your home ready for the next earthquake? Jerry B from Orange County is.
Living in a home with a raised foundation Jerry knew the importance of having the sill plate bolted to the foundation stemwall. Many homes in Orange County were built before the practice of foundation bolting was widely used.
160 linear feet of foundation stemwall was bolted by Saber's certified Crawl Space crew utilizing Simpson Strong Tie seismic plates connecting the wood structure of the home to the concrete foundation. The seismic upgrade took one day to complete with no disturbance to the interior dwelling or utilities.
After 7 years of owning a home with a pool in Anaheim Lawana watched as her pool deck slowely sank for 3 years due to poor compaction of the subbase soils and errosion from water migration under the pool deck slab.
This settlement of the pool deck concerned Lawana as her kids running around the deck had to avoid the trip and fall hazard caused by the settlement and misalignment of concrete pannels.
Saber's injected 51 pounds of PolyLEVEL below the affected area to not only raise the suncken slab but also fill any voids in close vacinity stoping water errosion and migration stopping future settlement of other areas of the pool deck.
Bill S homeowner in Costa Mesa called Saber to work hand in hand with the structural engineer to repair and support the pier and beam structure of his raised foundation "Crawl Space" home.
Engineer drawings called out for (4) Smart Jack girder supports as well as the removal and replacement of a failing grider. The Smart Jack system was chosen for its engineered fill base and capacity of the entire install unit.
The Smart Jack system is a great support solution to mitiagate against active clay soils under your home or to replace old and rotten timber supports.
Gustavo G. homeowner in Santa Ana, CA who has had (4) helical piers installed several years ago by Saber. They are all still working as intended. Gustavo is remolding and adding an existing structure in which he wanted to use Saber again to stabilize the structure.
The footing on the addition will required (14) new helical piers to stabilize the structure. These new piers were installed to a depth of 15-20 ft. with final torque of 10,000 lbs. They will be incased in the concrete footer which will permanently stabilize the addition.
Gustavo was pleaesed with the work Trevar A and crew performed.
Chris from Huntington Beach, CA watched as his pool deck slowly separated due to poor compaction of the sub-base soils and erosion from water migration under the pool deck slab.
This trip and fall hazard caused by the settlement and misalignment of concrete panels of the deck concerned Chris as he loved entertaining guests out by the pool.
Saber solved his problem by injecting 357 units of PolyLEVEL below the affected area to not only raise the sunken slab but to also fill any voids in close vicinity. This would also help in stopping water erosion and migration as well as stopping future settlement of other areas of the pool deck.
Homeowners in West Covina, had noticed several areas in and around their home that were cause for concern. There were cracks forming in the interior and exterior walls of the home and the doors and windows were becoming difficult to open and close.
The homeowners had received a few bids from other foundation contractors and decided to go with Saber after meeting with the project specialist. The homeowner was impressed with his professionalism and his overall knowledge of the situation, soon after Saber was contracted and the work began on the home. The crew had to saw cut and remove some areas of concrete to place the piers in the correct locations around the home for maximum practical recovery. The concrete was then replaced once the piers had been installed and the home had been lifted. The homeowners were kept informed of any issues or changes that needed to be made during the process. Once the piers had been installed and the lift pro formed, the crew then used our PolyLEVEL™ to fill the void underneath the home to prevent any future settlement to occur. The homeowners no longer see the effects of the settlement; the cracks in the walls have been closed and the doors and windows are no longer hard to open and close.
Homeowners in Diamond Bar, Ca had noticed signs of settlement in and around their propriety. After doing some research on the web for the best way to resolve their foundation settlement issue, they contracted Saber. A design specialist from Saber went to the home to do a property evaluation and found that the property did have some underlying soils issues which were causing the home to show the signs of settlement, interior and exterior cracks in the walls and the slab.
The design specialist proposed to resolve the issue by installing push piers at 11 different locations around the property and to lift and stabilize the property using PolyLEVEL™. The crew from Saber worked diligently to complete the project. There were several areas that needed to have concrete removed in order for the piers to be placed at the proper locations. The concrete was cut out and then the holes were excavated and the piers were installed. Once all the piers had been installed the home was lifted to maximum practical recovery, and the then PolyLEVEL™ was used to fill the void that had formed under the foundation once the property was raised.

Homeowners in San Clemente, California, had noticed some signs of settlement at their home. They knew that the issue would only get worse so they called on Saber Geotechnical Construction Solutions to assist them with the repairs of their investment. The home had signs of settlement in the interior walls as well as the exterior of the home. The design specialist from Saber proposed that the home be stabilized using the push pier system. In order to place the piers at the right locations along the property concrete needed to be removed to allow for excavating at the foundation footings. Sixteen locations needed to be excavated and the concrete needed to be cut and removed from those locations. Once the location had been excavated 16 piers were placed, one at each location. There was also 7 pier locations at the property that needed helical anchor attachments with retrofit brackets for extra stabilization. The home was then lifted to maximum practical recovery and the homeowner, no longer sees the signs of settlement and has piece of mind knowing that the home is now stabilized.
A homeowner in San Juan Capistrano had developed some tilted and shifted concrete slabs due to the settling and expansion of the soil and clay that is commonly found in Southern California. The homeowner first thought that the solution would be to demo and re-pour or grind edges which is both expensive and grinding a bit unsightly when the aggregate is exposed. So after doing some research the homeowner found Saber and the PolyLEVEL™ method, and thought that this was the solution he had been looking for. He contacted Saber and project specialist was schedule to meet the homeowner at the property to do an evaluation. The project specialist proper to use the PolyLEVEL™ system to raise the concrete and fix the homeowners problems with the tilted and shifted slabs.

The homeowners now have piece of mind knowing that they biggest investment is stabile and no longer has signs of settlement.
A home in Buena Park, California, was suffering from settlement issues. The home was showing specific signs of settlement: included cracks in the interior and exterior of the home, doors and windows sticking and cracking in the slab of the homes foundation. This settlement is due to the shifting soils beneath the homes foundation. The homeowners needed to have these issues fixed, Saber scheduled a project specialist to evaluate the property, the specialist proposed concrete to be removed and piers to be placed around the property to support the foundation using low profile bracket and also to route, clean and repair slab crack using two component epoxy injection method. The Saber crew was scheduled to complete the project, once they arrived at the property the crew went straight to work. Five areas of concrete were cut and removed to excavate the soils and expose the foundations footing. Then 21 push piers were installed around the properties exterior. The crew did have to drive some of the piers to an extra depth in order to reach the bedrock or solid soils beneath the foundation, to insure the best stabilization and any future settlement. Once the piers were installed and the lift was complete, the crew then began the clean up of the areas, and backfilled all of the holes. The concrete that had been cut out were then re-poured. The crack that had formed in the slab was then routed and cleaned then injected with a two-component epoxy injection method. The home no longer has settlement issues and the signs that the homeowners once saw are no longer issues.
Homeowners in Lake Forest were noticing sloping and bowing of the floors and walls throughout their home. They knew there was an issue that needed to be addressed. They researched companies on the Internet, to find a company with integrity and knowledge of the issues that they were experiencing in their home. Then found Saber to be the best option and immediately called to set an appointment for their free property evaluation. Based on the investigation performed on the foundation, was recommended that the foundation be supported by means of underpinning in the areas of failure. In addition to supporting the foundation from further failure, the foundation should also be raised to "maximum practical recovery". The method of underpinning recommended is to install Push Piers into the soil to the bedrock beneath the foundation. It was also recommended that a new girder beam be installed and then smart jacks added for more support. The Saber crew excavated the areas around the footing to place the two recommended push piers. They then replaced the girder beam and installed adjustable steel Smart Jacks by digging a 24'X24" foundation pit, filling it with compacted crushed rock creating an engineered fill, then they installed a precast foundation base, attached and adjusted two Smart Jacks for proper elevation and load bearing of the supporting floor. The home no longer shows signs of settlement the sloping and bowing that was once evident is no longer an issue.
A homeowner in Costa Mesa had contacted Saber regarding the settlement of their home. The homeowner had noticed that cracks were beginning to form in the interior walls of the home as well as in the homes slab. A Saber design specialist was scheduled to evaluate the property.

The Saber crew arrived at the home and went straight to work. They injected PolyLEVEL™ up to seven feet below the existing slab into the soil for greater bearing capacity and soil stabilization, followed by injection of a closed cell, high density expanding structural polyurethane resin directly beneath the existing slab to attempt lift to maximum practical recovery. Once the PolyLEVEL™ was injected and set up, the crew needed to repair some of the cracks that had formed in the slab. Crack repair by perpendicular saw cutting of crack and installing steel concrete staples 18"o.c. and a two component epoxy was completed by the crew. The home is now stabilized from future settlement, and the cracks have been repaired.
Homeowners in Lake Forest, California had noticed signs of settlement throughout their home; they had large cracks forming in the slab of the foundation and cracks forming around doorframes throughout the home. The homeowners knew that the issues were significant enough to have someone come out and evaluate the problem. The homeowners researched many companies in and around the area and found Saber, they scheduled an appointment for and Saber design specialist to come out to their home and evaluate their property. The finding was that the homeowners did have an underling settlement issue. This issue is mostly due to the settlement of soils, this type of settlement is due to the expansive soils beneath the homes foundation. The soils expand and shrink due to the changes in the climate and leave voids, which in turn cause settlement, and that is when the cracking and shifting begins. It was proposed to have three push piers installed to stabilize and lift the property. The Homeowners were really impressed with the Saber design and were ready to fix the homes foundation issues. The Saber crew arrived at the home and went to work, three holes were excavated at the foundations footings and the piers were installed. Once the piers were installed they were set up for the lift to begin, the lift was completed and then PolyLEVEL™ was injected to fill any voids and prevent future settlement. Once the PolyLEVEL™ was cured the crew backfilled the holes and started the process of stitching the cracks that had formed in the foundation. Using a two-component epoxy injection the crew stitched the cracks and the job was complete. The homeowners can know have piece of mind knowing that their biggest investment is stabilized.

A homeowner in Trabuco Canyon called Saber to see what an effective solution for her sinking slab would be. Her garage door didn't close completely and there were gaps throughout the area. Saber's project design specialist was able to determine that PolyLevel injection below the garage slab would be the most efficient means to solve the problem.
Saber's PolyLevel crew was dispatched to the homeowner's property to lift the slab. Once the job began, the crew drilled small holes into the slab and as PolyLevel was injected underneath, the level of the concrete was closely monitored until the maximum expected lift was achieved. The holes were then patched with concrete, and the slab was at full load bearing weight in less than an hour.
The customer was impressed with the quickness of the crew's work and was able to close her garage door completely.
A homeowner in Rancho Santa Margarita, Ca. saw a few foundation repair contractors when they first started seeing signs of foundation failure. Once they had the work done by a company, they thought their problems were over. However, a year later, they saw that their floors were cracking and shifting again. The polyurethane that was pumped under their floors and slab was failing. They reached out to Saber to hopefully solve their foundation issues for good.
Saber's project design team went out and determined that not only did the home need some additional poly, but the slab foundation needed stabilizing push piers to permanently stabilize the home. Much of the old poly from the previous company had to come out. It was also determined that an in-ground drainage system needed to be installed to redirect water away from the home and foundation.
Once the production crew came to the home, the project began. The foreman, Curtis Larson, discussed the project with the homeowner and what the end results were expected to be. The customer expressed his need for level floors and closed cracks that had formed in the walls inside and outside of the home.
Concrete was removed and holes were dug in order to insert the stabilizing piers. There were roots 2-4 inches thick, making the going tough for the team. Once the roots and old foam insert was removed, the crew was successfully able to install the piers. Once the home was lifted and stabilized, the soil under the raised slab was backfilled and compacted. The customer was pleased with the level of lift.
PolyLevel needed to be injected into the homeowner's kitchen, living room, and main hall area, leveling the areas. Another crew began trenching for the drainage system, PVC pipe, for future water re-direction. Roots were cleared in order to successfully pay the pipe and install the system. The customer was happy to learn that any rain or other water wouldn't compromise the soils around his foundation.
Over the years living in their home, a family in Trabuco Canyon, Ca. noticed cracks in their interior walls and their floors were uneven in some areas. Their backyard patio slab was also cracking in areas. After reading Saber's outstanding online reviews, they called them for a free foundation inspection and estimate.
It was found by Saber's Project Design Specialist that the home's foundation had indeed settled, leaving the home unlevel. It was recommended that hydraulic push piers be installed at certain locations around the house in order to lift the home and prevent further settling. As for their back patio, PolyLevel polyurethane foam was recommended to lift the cracked sunken slab.
Once the production crew was on site, the work began. As brick and other cover were removed in order to dig holes for the piers, the foreman on the job site upgraded the project by adding 2 additional piers. The homeowner was confident that his home was in good hands and would have a permanent fix to his family's problem.
Along with the holes for each pier, a 10X2 foot trench was dug for steel beam supports. The second day saw more trenching as well as the holes dug for the final two piers of the project. The next day, the homeowner was present for the lifting of his family home. After the home was stabilized, Saber's PolyLevel crew came in and assessed the patio.
A small Poly rig completed 3in. void fill after drilling through grout lines. The injection of the foam went smoothly. All in all, 35 units of PolyLevel was used in the project. After the patio work was complete, both crews worked together to backfill over the piers and clean the job site.
Overall, the homeowner and his family were pleased with the outcome of the project. Now they could rest assured that their home would stay level and their children would be able to play on their outdoor patio without tripping or catching toys on cracks.
A home in San Juan Capistrano, Ca. previously had foundation work done years prior the current family contacted Saber. Over time, the homeowners had noticed that a few of their doors didn't shut completely square within their frames. There were also many cracks along the interior walls of their home. Their fireplace had begun to separate from their home's walls on the interior of the home, while the chimney was gradually pulling away from the outside wall.
Upon calling Saber and having a free inspection of their home, it was determined that the home needed many stabilizing piers to prevent further settlement of the foundation. At the start of the project, the homeowners walked the whole work area, discussing with the foreman the project ahead. In order to install a few of the piers, the family's 4' concrete walkway needed to be removed. Further into the project, it was found that a previous owner of the home had mud jacking performed under the foundation to support the home. The slurry needed to be removed in order to provide Saber's correct and permanent fix on their home.
Along with the stabilizing piers, steel beams were installed underneath in order to further support the home. After the project was completed, the crew cleaned their job site and replaced the removed concrete walkway over the installed piers. The homeowners walked the final result of their home's foundation project. They were very glad to finally have their home level, the cracks in walls closed, and the doors line up in their frames.
Over the 4 years that a homeowner and family had been in their San Clemente home, cracks on the exterior and interior walls of the home had been progressively getting longer and larger. The most change could be seen within the past year. The family was worried about further damage. They knew that the problem needed to be remedied as soon as possible.
The husband and wife had budgeted for repairs and contacted Saber to get their home's problem diagnosed and a permanent solution applied. Once Saber's project design specialist performed their inspection, it was agreed that 5 288 Helical Piers installed in key locations around the home, including directly alongside the exterior of the home and out near their back patio, would permanently stabilize the foundation, preventing any further sinking and settlement.
The family was pleased with the results and warranty guarantee. They now look forward to many more years in their newly stabilized home, not worrying about further damage caused by shifting and settling soils.
A man recently purchased a Santa Ana, Ca. home with plans to renovate, 'flip', and sell the home. Upon further inspection at the time of purchase, it was found that the home and the neighboring tennis court on the property had experienced severe settlement and sinking. The homeowner was unaware of exactly what problems had caused the cracks in the interior and exterior walls and stucco of the home since it was built in 1989. The tennis court was found to have sinking slabs, creating poor drainage and trip hazards for anyone looking to buy the home and enjoy the sport.
Upon calling Saber for an inspection and estimate for repairs, the homeowner stressed that he wanted to boost the resale value of the home once all renovations and improvements were made. During their inspection, Saber found that one area of the home itself had settled. It was determined that 12 288 push piers around the compromised area of foundation would prevent further sinking and lift the home to maximum practical recovery. PolyLevel expanding foam beneath the slab for soil stabilization would also aid in the prevention of further sinking.
Each PolyLevel port was spaced 4' apart on the floor of the home and the piers were placed at the base of the foundation's footing, around the perimeter of the sinking area of the home's foundation. PolyLevel was also installed underneath areas of the tennis court through dime-sized ports that were later sealed. The production crew was able to level the court slabs, eliminating trip hazards and areas where water pooled after rain.
With the leveled tennis court and stabilized area of the home's foundation, the property's chances of being resold with increased value were improved. The homeowner was confident that he could move forward with the home's other renovations and repairs, now that the foundation of the home was secured.
The owner of a home in Laguna Beach had been having crawl space issues for a long time. The home had been built in 1936, and the homeowner had been occupying the home for 12 years when he reached out to Saber. He had been concerned about moisture beneath his house that had been causing allergens and humidity to circulate throughout the upper floors, triggering his asthma. Though there was no mold present at the time, the crawl space emitted a musty and damp odor. There was also a problem with rodents and other pests in the area.
He had received a little professional advice on the topic of crawl space encapsulation but wanted Saber to come to do a complete 90-minute inspection of the crawl space and provide an estimate of repairs. He was also very interested in the energy savings potential and storage space availability that comes with the CleanSpace encapsulation system.
In order to eliminate any further occurrence of moisture and standing water in the crawl space, 690 sq. ft. of CleanSpace drainage matting and liner was required to aid in wicking water from the soils to prevent it from pooling at the surface. The CleanSpace liner, matting, and post wraps were installed to keep allergens out of the air, create a moisture barrier between the home and the soil, as well as dehumidify the crawlspace.
Moist air that enters a vented crawl space will condense on cooler crawl space surfaces, ruining insulation and encouraging mold, mildew/wood decay to spread. Four crawl space vent covers were installed at the Long Beach home in order to protect it from outside temperature and coastal humidity conditions, as well as pests.
The homeowner was very pleased with the final result and looked forward to cleaner air circulation throughout his home as well as the elimination of odors. He was happy that his home now promoted energy conservation and any further damage to insulation and HVAC beneath his home would stop.
A homeowner in Huntington Beach, Ca was seeing symptoms of settling in the home he had lived in since 1987. The home, built in 1976, was experiencing drywall and stucco cracks both inside and outside the home. The homeowner and his wife wanted to build an addition to the home, but needed to level or lift the home's foundation before they could move forward.
Saber's project design specialist used zipline and other readings to determined how far their foundation had settled. Saber found that the couple's home had been experiencing general foundation distress and the present soil conditions promoted settlement that was likely to continue over time.
The homeowner and his wife wanted to remedy the issue with their home as soon as possible, so Saber's production team started soon. They were to install 10 288 Low Profile Push Piers in designated areas around the home to level and attemp to lift the home. Each pier was encased in concrete by a third party, not jeopardizing any warranties on the piers themselves.
At the beginning of the job, landscaping had to be removed from each of the pier locations. Soil was then excavated at each pier location at the bottom of the foundation footing. Along with the installed push piers, 42 units of PolyLevel void filling was installed beneath the footing. Polylevel void fill (210 units) was also inserted beneath the slab foundation to further reinforce the home and stabilize the soil.
Beneath the home's sliding glass door to their patio a pier couldn't be placed, so a steel beam was installed beneach the jamb, so that there woul dbe no damage to the footing. Once the project was complete, the foreman walked the entire jobsite with the homeowner, asking if he or his wife had any questions. They did not and were happy with the final result of closed drywall cracks and a level home.
A family living in their home in Dana Point, Ca. for over 20 years had begun to see the advancement of cracks in the exterior walls over the course of the recent year. The husband and wife became worried about foundation settlement and wanted a permanent solution that was done right.
Saber's project design specialist found the home had been built on soil that had been experiencing shifting and settlement. A plan was made to use push piers to stabilize the home in order to prevent any further settlement over time. The family had no plans on moving or selling the home. The customer was responsible for removing bushes and other landscaping at pier locations as well as remove cabinets and shelving from other areas of stabilization. In order to install the piers, Saber's production crew had to remove concrete at the pier locations.
After the pier installation, Saber's team replaced the concrete over the pier locations and cleaned the job site to customer expectation. The crew's foreman walked the job site with the husband, explaining the work that had been completed. The family was impressed with Saber's dilligence and the effective solution they provided for their beloved home.

Homeowner Erin K. has an older home in Santa Ana that was built in the mid-1940s. Because earthquakes in Southern California are relatively common, Erin wanted to invest in retrofitting her home to bring back value to her property. Erin has lived in her home for 22 years and now is at the age where her home is too big for her to maintain alone. She wishes to sell her home and move into a smaller one that is more manageable for her. 7 years ago, she started noticing issues with her door and window frames. They were starting to become more difficult to close. This is because she had some serious foundation cracks throughout her crawl space. The cracks now caused the home’s structural strength to dwindle and now her floors are also sagging. Having these foundation problems can greatly devalue a home by a significant amount. Project Design Specialist Steven O. was called in to do Erin’s evaluation. Erin was very happy with the evaluation and decided to move forward with the project. Bryan and his team arrived and installed 17 new posts that are equipped with pads and caps. A 70ft supplemental beam, 10 smart jacks, and 7 foundation wall straps. After the job was completed, Erin was overjoyed that her home is now structurally stable and was able to maintain her home value. She can now sell her home without compromising on the value of her home.
Andrew P and his wife’s home had major crawl space issues in North Tustin. They plan on staying in the home for many more years to come. However, over the years they have been constantly fixing the sticking doors and windows along with their cracked walls. Andrew was fed up with the constant costs and wanted to get to the bottom of the issue. Literally! The cause of their issues was in their crawl space at the bottom of their house. They had unsupported beams as well as poorly installed ones. To fix their issues in their crawl space Andrew wanted to make sure the next company he hired had a great reputation and were competent to properly fix their problems. When he found Saber, he knew he made the right decision. Our project design specialist Brian N. found several unsupported posts, a hole in their foundation, found there were a need for a supplemental beam to better support their floor, and areas that were in desperate need of some foundation anchors and A35 framing angle supports. Bryan A. and his crew arrived after the inspection for the installation. Bryan and his crew installed two of the new 350 SmartJacks, an eight-foot galvanized steel supplemental beam, replace 4 of the failing post with new wood posts with caps for extra stability, the needed foundation anchors and A35s, ten foundation wall straps, and lastly repaired the hold in their foundation. Andrew and his wife can now continue living in their home know that it’s solid, safe, and functioning as it supposed to be.
Homeowners Robert and Tania K. have lived in their late 1970s home for nearly three years. Roughly near a year ago, they noticed a problem with their pool’s concrete. It started to have slabs of concrete settling throughout the pool deck. Robert said, “We started noticing about a year ago. Since then, it’s only got worse and worse! We don’t want this to get any worse and want a reputable company to fix it.” Our Project Design Specialist Curtis found that the family needed 135 feet of old sealant removed, 65 feet of NexusPro for the joints, another 55 feet of nexus pro to repair the cracks, and 1110 square feet of the concrete protection system. PolyLevel specialist Scott L and his crew took on the project which took two days to complete. Robert and his wife Tania fixed their pool just in time for summer and they could have been any happier!
