Homeowner Searches for Concrete Leveling in Illinois State Capital

A homeowner in Springfield, IL searched high and low for a professional concrete leveling contractor. He then contacted Helitech because of water in his basement. During the initial visit, it was apparent that the water was coming up over the top of the existing foundation. The homeowner showed the crew an area where water was coming in and water damage on interior framing.

The problem wasn’t necessarily the home’s foundation, but that the driveway was tilted towards the house and was badly cracked. In addition, the adjoining neighbors behind him were elevated higher, which directed all of their water towards the problem house.

Springfield Concrete Removal and Replacement Contractor Finds Solution for Homeowner

Helitech removed the existing section of the driveway and replaced it with a new one sloping away from the house. Helitech also installed a grate alongside the house to catch water during a heavy storm. The crew removed a 16-inch section of the driveway along the side of the house and replaced it with new concrete that was curbed to send water down to the street faster.

The result was an effective solution that improved the flow of rainwater and improved the appearance of the property.

Great service. Kevin was great at explaining what needed to be done and following up. Aaron and his crew worked very hard in a particularly difficult job site. Clay soil and bedrock caused all kinds of problems, but they were on phone with supervisors, engineers, etc. to come up with the best solution options. Left job site clean, and finished in allotted time.
