Concrete Repair Case Studies: Prepping Home for Resale in Goose Creek, SC

Wednesday, April 4th, 2018 by Michael Connolly

Challenge

Gerry G. of Goose Creek, SC was prepping her home for resale and was concerned with her curb appeal. One eyesore stood out amongst the rest: her cracked driveway. Gerry has spent years on various other home projects and decided to tackle the concrete driveway last.

The driveway hadn’t sunk yet but Gerry was concerned that it might. Rather than doing nothing about the problem and listing her home, she called Lowcountry Basement Systems for a free inspection.

Solution

Lowcountry Basement Systems sent an inspector to Gerry’s home and recommended filling the voids under the driveway to prevent a possible collapse or settlement. After the voids would be filled, it was suggested to seal the crack to prevent water from seeping under the slab and eroding the soil beneath.

To stabilize the drive, Lowcountry Basement systems recommended using a two-part polyurethane called PolyLevel. PolyLevel would be injected beneath the concrete through small dimed sized holes, expand, fill the voids and stabilize the driveway. PolyLevel is environmentally friendly, waterproof and comes with a 5-year warranty.

Lowcountry Basement Systems used Nexus Pro to seal the cracks and prevent water from getting under the driveway.

Rather than listing the home, Gerry decided to have the job done and make more money on the resell value of her home. Lowcountry Basement Systems completed the job in three hours. Gerry was ecstatic of the results and listed her home shortly after.

Project Summary

PolyLevel: 3 Gallons

Nexus Pro: 1 Gallon
