FAQs for Realtors

  • Does United Structural Systems guarantee their work?
    We guarantee all of our interior drainage systems and foundation wall repair with lifetime, no-hassle warranties. Call us for more information on guarantees for concrete lifting!
  • How long does United Structural Systems' concrete repair last?
    The PolyLift system we use for concrete repair is a permanent solution for concrete lifting, unlike the more outdated mudjacking option that some companies still use. The unique polyurethane foam we use to lift concrete back into place is waterproof and very lightweight, meaning it won’t wash out and it won’t sink the way heavy concrete slurry does.
  • What can I expect during a concrete appointment?
    Concrete appointments are straightforward. An experienced Project Manager will discuss the issues with you before they take a look at the affected concrete. They will assess the extent of the damage and determine a course of action that fits your needs and your budget.
  • What can be done about broken concrete caused by tree roots?
    It is actually very rare for tree roots to cause any damage to your concrete, but in the rare case that it does happen, there are options. You can always cut the roots, though this could kill your tree if not done carefully by an experienced professional. Root barriers can be installed once the offending roots have been removed. You can also remove the entire tree. Once the root of the problem has been addressed and if the concrete is not beyond repair, it may be lifted to remove the trip hazards and potentially close any cracks.
  • Why does exterior concrete sink?
    Exterior concrete sinks because the soil beneath it has given way. Water saturates the soil, causing it to swell and press upward against the concrete. When the soil dries out, it shrinks again and leaves voids beneath the concrete slab that eventually the concrete falls into.
  • Does United Structural Systems use MudJacking to level concrete?
    We do not use mudjacking to level concrete. We believe it is an outdated method that doesn’t permanently keep concrete lifted. We use a special polyurethane foam that is much lighter than mudjacking.
  • Can I DIY my concrete repair project?
    Your average hardware store is going to have a lot of different epoxies and other options for DIY concrete crack repair. However, these methods fail to address the underlying cause of your damaged concrete and instead are mostly just giving you a cosmetic repair without warranty.
  • How much does concrete repair cost?
    The cost of your concrete repair will vary depending upon how much concrete needs to be lifted and how severe the damage is. The best way to find out the cost is to contact us for a free estimate on our services. We can let you know what solutions will be best and how much it is going to cost.
  • How long does concrete repair take?
    Our preferred method for concrete repair is very fast. The length of time for the entire repair process will vary depending upon how much concrete needs to be repaired. The cure time for our patented PolyLift system is almost immediate.
  • How soon can I use my concrete after it has been repaired?
    We utilize a fast-acting polyurethane foam to perform concrete repairs. Concrete leveled with our PolyLift system can be walked on immediately once the repair has been completed. You can drive on your driveway after just 30 minutes.

See What Realtors Are Saying About Working With USS

"As a Realtor, I am always needing trustworthy companies to recommend for my clients. I am so thankful to have worked with Sr. Project Manager, Ben Perkins! Ben was the biggest help for my client on a large basement wall structure project. He was efficient with identifying the issues, and thoroughly explained the whole repair process. Ben was always available for any questions that were asked, and provided necessary resources to ensure the client was able to get the repairs done in a timely manner. I am hesitant to say that Ben went above and beyond, because I don’t want people to take advantage of kindness and professionalism. I am thankful for Ben and USS for the efficiency, professionalism, and skills that they provide to their customers. You forever have a client with me!"  -Reena Patrick

Robert Elam with USS is a wealth of knowledge and an incredible asset to all professionals that need this level of expertise in their corner. He just taught a class for us, and all attendees were very impressed, including me (after 40 years in the industry).” -Monte Mohr, Realty ONE Group

“I want to express my thanks to you for providing lunch and speaking to our Keller Williams Ignite class today. Clearly, USS could be a tremendous help in getting to the closing table. I would definitely give you a call for any type of foundation repair.” Jack B., Keller Williams

"USS is my go-to vendor for everything related to foundation concerns and repairs. Chad with USS has never steered my clients or me wrong and I trust him completely with all foundation questions and concerns. USS is loyal and trustworthy and Chad with USS will continue to be my first call." M.E. Myhre - Compass Realty

“I almost always can tell, when I get inside a crawlspace or basement, the scope of repair work performed and oftentimes I am dismayed. However, USS has serviced many foundations and structures in my market and I have never, to date, come across a structure documented as being serviced by USS that was deficient in repairs performed, nor in site management. Repairs of this nature are not inexpensive. Consumers need to know what they are paying for and need a guarantee for work performed. From what homeowners have told me, and from what I have seen in my decade-plus tenure, USS is a solid choice for quality.” Greg J., WIN Home Inspection

“As a home inspector, I greatly appreciate the quality of work and professionalism that I see from United Structural Systems. This is a top-notch company that stands behind their work. It is easy for me to recommend to my clients facing potentially costly repairs a company that will provide the best service and the best quality on the market.” Tim Fuller, Fuller Home Inspection
