About Us


Who we are and what we do.


Our history

JACKCRETE evolved from a diverse team of experts that have been pioneering the polyurethane industry in the Hampton Roads area since the 1970's. Since expanding into the concrete lifting market about 10 years ago we have perfected our trade, allowing us to provide our clients with the best possible service and the best possible work.

Where we are today

JACKCRETE of Virginia is continuing to lead the concrete lifting and leveling industry, having won national industry excellence awards in 2015, 2016, and 2018. As we continue to grow, we maintain our commitments to professionalism, quality, and service through all the work we do. We strive to make the high price and hassle of concrete replacement a thing of the past!

J. Plumley

Poplar Branch, NC

"Amazing on all levels. Quick, efficient, and outstanding work. The gentlemen performing work are absolute professionals! I initially had plans of having my driveway replaced. No need for that. Thanks to Jackcrete and the crew!!!"


Woo-Woo (The Morning Point)

Virginia Beach, VA                             


B. Kleine

Williamsburg, VA

"I have a large driveway that had many sections which had either sunk or popped up because of roots. JACKCRETE aligned the various section to the point the driveway is as good as new. JACKCRETE did what they said they would do, when scheduled and on budget. Would definitely recommend them."


S. Hardwick

Chesapeake VA

"I no longer felt it was safe to park my car in the driveway due to a huge crack and gapping hole. It was badly sinking along that crack. I found JACKCRETE online, contacted Steve who got with me immediately. When they came out to do the work, it was completed as he had described it to me, they worked quickly and efficiently, and cleaned up very nicely. Steve is an honest, professional man that you can trust and depend on to get the job done right."


G. Malloy

Hampton, VA

"The flood in 2003 weakened the soil that supported the concrete slab around my swimming pool. I called JACKCRETE and they were at my home within an hour to give us an estimate of the cost to repair the slabs in 6 different areas around the pool. The estimate was fair and we signed the contract and the work was done on time in a few days. We are pleased with the results of their work and would highly recommend the service to friends and family."
