Customer Reviews


CRC uses a concrete slurry that hardens, making a permanent repair to my driveway and front sidewalk. Paul and his crew drilled 15 holes and injected the concrete slurry carefully in each section to bring the driveway and sidewalk back up to grade level and in alignment with each other. Then they patched the holes and cleaned up. It took about an hour and a half for this job. They did a great job. In addition, the office staff was a pleasure to deal with. Adam came out to do an estimate and there were no surprises during the job. Andrea and Jacqueline made it easy to set up the estimate, schedule the job and make payment upon completion. Overall, I had a great experience working with CRC and would highly recommend this company for concrete raising and leveling.

These guys were great to work with. I would definitely use them again. We had a sidewalk and part of our driveway raised.

We had CRC raise a walkway to our front door.  They came on time, raised the walkway and even pointed out an area by my garage that needed a little raising to stabilize it.  They did a great job on both.  I would highly recommend them

Foundation Repair in Riverwoods

Cracks in poured concrete basement and crawlspace walls are a fact of life but can unnerve even the savviest homeowners. The fact is - concrete cracks. Many of these cracks are common shrinkage cracks that occur as the concrete cures. These cracks are typically vertical and usually less than 1/16" wide. We also see many structural or settlement cracks. These can happen due to differential loading, lateral pressure, or from vertical movement due to soil shrinkage. CRC's methods of foundation crack repair and stopping leaks in foundations are designed to be cost-effective and reliable. And though some waterproofing companies may propose extensive crack repair methods inside of the home, all of our work is done inside the home. Our crack repair processes are quick, simple, and clean. CRC's process of foundation crack repair uses multiple types of resins to inject cracks, holes, and porous areas. Our exclusively-formulated HydroSeal and HydroFill products are used to permanently waterproof and repair your concrete foundation issues. Benefits of utilizing our exclusively formulated expanding urethane (HydroFill):

  • Fills the crack completely, not just on the surface
  • Any voids behind the wall are filled
  • It’s flexible – for any future movement or settling of your foundation
  • It does not shrink

Prevent unnecessary tripping hazards by calling CRC for your pool deck leveling needs. Causes of pool deck concrete sinking. Concrete pool decks in Northern Illinois area are prone to settling because of the actual pool construction process. The backfill soil that's added around the pool excavation will not be as dense or well-compacted as the undisturbed soil. When a heavy concrete slab is poured around the pool, loose soil will often compress under the slab's weight, which can cause sections of the concrete to sink or settle. Another potential reason for your pool deck to become un-level is due to the multiple sections that are laid. If a seal hasn't properly been laid or has worn away water will get in and begin erosion under the slabs.
