What is Concrete Leveling?
 The process of raising sunken concrete slabs

through the use of hydraulic pressure injection
where a grout, or other base material, creates
a new sub-base by filling voids beneath
concrete slabs and hydraulically raising the
sunken slab back to grade
 Environmentally responsible application
 Reuse existing slabs
 Limestone material is natural, non-toxic
