Crew concrete

Fam­i­ly Water­proof­ing is always look­ing for ways to improve our ser­vice. That’s why we attend­ed HMI Uni­ver­si­ty every year, a 3‑day course on con­crete rais­ing. Fam­i­ly has been pro­vid­ing con­crete rais­ing ser­vices since our com­pa­ny start­ed, but there are con­stant­ly new meth­ods and tips being devel­oped that we can learn to help per­fect our process so we can offer the best solu­tions to our customers.

Con­crete rais­ing is an excel­lent alter­na­tive to a com­plete tear out and replace­ment of your dri­ve­way, patio, side­walk, or front steps. It saves you time and mon­ey. Uneven con­crete isn’t just a cos­met­ic issue. It can be a trip­ping haz­ard and cause drainage prob­lems impact­ing your foun­da­tion which can lead to base­ment seep­age. The rais­ing process is fast and sim­ple – holes are strate­gi­cal­ly drilled into the con­crete that needs to be raised and polyurethane foam is pumped in the holes to lev­el out the dis­place­ment. Once lev­el, the holes are repaired and the con­crete is ready to use in 15 min­utes. We use polyurethane due to its longevi­ty and low­er cost com­pared to oth­er products. 

If your dri­ve­way or patio slabs start to sink, don’t replace it, call on Fam­i­ly to raise it.

What our customers say

  • You and your crew did a great job in our base­ment and crawl­space. You went the extra mile to insure that all of our water seep­age prob­lems are over. We would rec­om­mend you high­ly to oth­er peo­ple. Your qual­i­ty and time­ly work out­match­es all the others.

  • Work­man­ship and ser­vice were excel­lent. Would rec­om­mend with­out reservation.

  • We con­tract­ed Fam­i­ly Water­proof­ing Solu­tions for exte­ri­or wall seal­ing and foun­da­tion crack repair ser­vices. Ken was very thor­ough in explain­ing the work that would be done, and his crew did a great job. This busi­ness was a plea­sure to work with.
