Case Studies: Dobson, NC – Sidewalk Settlement Fixed

Thursday, June 11th, 2015 By Jaimie Hooker


This Dobson, NC home had a beautifully landscaped yard and detailed home. The homeowners had their dream home constructed in 1976 and were completing a full remodel of the home and property. One of the eyesores that was sticking out was the sunken sidewalk that was becoming a safety hazard. The sidewalk repair was the last step needed in order to finish the exterior home renovation.


System Design Specialist, Mark Silcott, sat down with the homeowners and designed a plan that would lift the settled sidewalk with no major disruption to the beautiful yard.

The PolyRenewal Team began by drilling small 5/8” holes in each slab to inject the high-density polyurethane foam under the slab. Unlike, traditional mudjacking, PolyRenewal is very light weight and warrantied. After the foam has been injected, each hole is grouted and sealed.  This homeowner is very excited to have an even sidewalk that looks like new thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!
