A-1 Concrete Leveling Franchise
A-1 Concrete Leveling is a franchise for a concrete leveler company. It was founded in 1992 by Grover Miller. He first developed the levelling pump in 1984 and has been improving it ever since.
The current president and secretary of the company is James W. Creed. He has experience in residential construction for over 20 years. He has a degree in labor economics which makes him valuable in bringing management and sales experience to the company. They now have 47 locations all over the United States. They see potential in every concrete. Uneven driveways and sidewalks can be more than just an inconvenience but poses danger to its users. The piston and screener that they use are in the process on being patented which gives the company the edge on this industry.
What services do A-1 Concrete Leveling offer?
They do leveling of driveways, sidewalks, patios, porches, floors, steps, and pool decks. They also do structural repairs such as bowed basement walls, leaning chimneys, and foundation repairs. Their services are used in commercial and industrial uses as well.
How exactly does their technology work?
What they do is drill a hole on the concrete that has sunk. Then they pump an A-1 compound into each hole from their truck. It acts as some kind of a hydraulic system that raises the concrete up to its original position. Once it reaches the desired level, they seal the holes with a cement mixture that is durable. They claim that with this technology, the area can be used that same day. They stand by this process as a way to save time and money compared to having to tear off the concrete and replacing it. With the later, there would also be a risk of not finding the exact same match of color and material used which can result to an undesirable outcome.
