Settled concrete is a common problem across Northern Illinois. Our harsh winters, spring thaw and dry summers wreak havoc on soil and concrete. Just as our seasons change, so does the ground and surrounding concrete. Every year, the weather in Northern Illinois often involves several thaw and refreezing cycles. When the ground changes, our concrete changes, and these changes cause problems – including settling. Concrete that sinks can create safety hazards and drainage issues. Safety hazards and drainage issues affect property values. Acme Concrete’s primary focus is to provide the best solution possible for this type of issue and others that may occur. We do this with a team of skilled professionals who provide outstanding service.

Polyurethane Foam Injection – The Modern Way to Raise Concrete
A key component of Acme Concrete’s Smart Lift System is the material we use – Polyurethane. Once protected by US Patent, the method of raising concrete using polyurethane was specifically reserved for Department of Transportation projects. This advanced system was, and still is, used for highways and bridge approaches. Acme Concrete refers to this technology as Polyurethane Concrete Raising.
We specialize in providing this superior Polyurethane Concrete Raising solution across Chicagoland, including every residential, commercial and municipal application imaginable. Lifting concrete back up to grade using polyurethane is fast, clean, long-lasting and outperforms older methods and materials. Most sunken concrete can now be raised with polyurethane thus avoiding costly replacement.
