Algonquin Concrete Contractor

The Gem of the Fox River Valley, Algonquin IL is a community with a rich history and a promising future.  What was once a farming community and quasi-resort town for people looking to escape the city life from Chicago, Algonquin is now a thriving regional hub.  Located 40 miles from the loop covering both Kane and McHenry counties.  Just in the past 10 years, Algonquin has seen an increase in population of over 10,000 residents.  Algonquin’s charming downtown district and collection of well-built sub-divisions such as High Hills Farms, Fieldcrest Farms, Falcon Ridge, Dawson Mill, Willoughby Farms and Arbor Hills have made Algonquin an ideal community to purchase a home and raise a family.

As a concrete contractor, Algonquin is one of our favorite communities to work in. Algonquin residents have a shared sense of pride in their community and see the value in investing in their homes and appreciate our high-quality work and award winning service.  Many of the asphalt driveways that were originally installed by builders are now reaching the end of their service life. Many Algonquin residents are now investing in more durable, longer lasting and more appealing concrete driveways.


Algonquin Concrete Raising, Lifting, Leveling, and Repair Company

With quick and affordable construction come quality issues such as poorly compacted bases. With so many track homes around the village, it’s common for homeowners in the area to request our services to repair sunken concrete walkway, driveways, patios and garage floors as well as full replacement of their concrete. Also, many of the Algonquin residential developments were built over wetlands that contain clay-rich soils that are susceptible to settling over time.


The Preferred Alternative to Mudjacking

Our repair process for raising and leveling sunken concrete is the most effective method available. Traditionally, mudjacking has been the only way to raise sunken concrete. While this method does work, it has never been viewed as a perfect solution. Catalano Concrete raises concrete using high-density polyurethane injections, known as PolyJacking. This process has been used for many years in heavy highway applications, today reputable contractors such as us are using it for residential and commercial applications because of its lightweight, strength, and durability. If your Algonquin home or business has sunken concrete in need of raising and leveling, give us a call for a free estimate on a permanent solution.

  • Catalano Concrete Construction responded to my request for someone to contact me within hours of sending my info. They came out that evening and were able to get me a quote on the spot which was good since we had a tight time line. We hired them to do the work and the day before our pour, they gave us a visit since they were in the area to make sure all was good. The day of our pour, their crew was professional and hard working. It was a pleasure working with them.
