The homeowner called us about his enclosed patio that was sinking. Upon further inspection, the Specialist noticed that the patio was originally poured without a footer. Once it was enclosed, they weight of the roof was too much for the slab and it began to crack and settle at the outside half of the now "room".
Our solution was to used a combined method of Polylevel and creating a new footer for the room. Without a footer, we could use traditional methods. Since the homeowner
was also putting a new siding on, first, the crew removed the brick siding to reduce the weight of the enclosed patio.
Our crew used hydraulic jacks to very carefully lift the edges of the structure, so as not to damage the existing concrete or damage the attached roof. Once it was
slightly lifted and stabilized, the crew injected Polylevel to lift and stabilize the interior of the room. When the entire room was level, the crew dug and poured
a new footer for the room to "rest" on. Lastly, they poured a new concrete apron around the exterior of the room the shed water away from the home.
