Sure-Dry Basement Systems Case Studies: Concrete Lifting and Leveling in Appleton, WI

Monday, March 12th, 2018 by David Longsine


The owner of an apartment complex in Appleton, WI had multiple issues with the entrances to 2 of their buildings. The entire slab was not only settling, but was pulling away from the foundation; which in turn was causing the 2nd story balconies to settle and lean forward. This was starting to cause potential structure issues. In fact, in the past, the owners had tried to “mud jack” the slabs which lasted a very short period of time. I have seen this many, many times before.


I visited with the property manager and asked many questions to understand exactly what her/the owner’s concerns were. Our goal at SureDry is to understand the problem(s) and offer a solution that makes sense, take care of the concern, and is budget friendly. The goal was to make sure that there was no further settlement of the slab and that the 2nd story balconies are stable. Our team at SureDry was able to completely void fill all areas under the slab with PolyLevel and seal up all cracks with our Nexus Pro Joint Sealant so that no future water can cause issues. We addressed the goals and then protected her investment with a 5 year warranty to boot. Happy customer that will call us with any future concerns with her properties.
