    I'm afraid to let the 'cat out of the bag', but I have to give these guys a great review. I just hope they don't raise the prices or become super difficult in the future, but I can't think of any real negatives. The only thing was the wait for them to come up, but even that, they tried to schedule earlier, but it didn't work out for us. 5 rating for them for sure!

    Protect Your Concrete from Soil Erosion with Nexus Pro®

    NexusPro® is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks specially engineered to provide long-lasting flexibility and to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Unlike traditional polyurethane sealants, NexusPro resists UV rays, which means it won't crack, bubble or dry. It fits into homeowners' busy lifestyles, too - drying time is a fraction of that needed for other urethane-based caulking products.

     

    Why you need it.

    The soil under your concrete driveway, sidewalk, stoop, patio, pool deck, or garage slab can soften or erode as surface water runs through open cracks and joints. Weak soils and voids allow concrete to shift and settle, resulting in cracked, uneven surfaces.

He dug a hole just big enough for a 5-gallon bucket, put the sump pump back in, and ran a hose from the pump. He did this to help pump the water out. But Didn't know that what he did was illegal.
