Concrete Raising Northern IL Services for Chicago's Suburbs
Settled concrete is a common problem across Northern Illinois. Our harsh winters, spring thaws, 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, drainage issues and affect property values.
Acme Concrete’s primary focus is to provide the best solution and leveling services possible for sinking concrete. We do this with a team of skilled professionals who provide outstanding service across the Northwest suburbs of Illinois.
Smart Lift System - The Ultimate Solution for Settled Concrete
We created the Smart Lift System which specifically addresses the problems associated with sunken concrete. From raising sunken concrete to joint sealing and deep stabilization –

Polyurethane Foam Injection – The Modern Way to Raise Concrete
Polyurethane foam injection gives stronger, lighter, and denser concrete lifting than traditional methods, making it the best and most popular option. It also has a higher R-value than other kinds of insulation, which means the heat will not be transferred.
Polyurethane is also waterproof and, if used as a house wrap, can act as exterior insulation because it does not leave any gaps between the insulation and substrate. You also won’t have to worry about mold as it is mold and moisture-resistant
How the Process Works
- Inspection of the site
- Preparation of the site
- Pumping of the concrete

What will my concrete look like when you’re done?
We have dozens of before and after pictures that will show you just how great your concrete will look when we’re done. Our repair process is the most non-invasive option available today, unlike replacement and mud jacking operations which leaves noticeable changes after the drill holes are filled. Unlike or Smart Lift System, mud jacking can leave your concrete full of ugly patches. Our modernized equipment allows easy access for hard to reach and highly populated areas all with minimal disturbance and a quite smooth and even concrete surface. We routinely raise concrete along flower beds, landscape features, behind homes, and at active and operating commercial sites.
How long will it take to raise my concrete?
The majority of residential projects are completed within a matter of hours. Larger, more complex jobs like commercial contracts may require a full day or longer. Still, unlike mud jacking, our advanced process allows unrestricted use of lifted concrete slabs immediately. If we raise a driveway – it can be driven on immediately. Our process for lifting concrete is so powerful, we have raised driveway sections with cars still parked on them! Learn more about the strength of polyurethane.
What about Safety, Health & the Environment?
If someone has raised concerns about using polyurethane, chances are they’re originating from a mudjacker. We’re a very health & safety-minded company and are ready to address any concerns you might have. We’ve even published an entire webpage dedicated to Health, Safety & the Environment.
