Benefits of Concrete Lifting via Polyurethane Foam Injection
The benefits of concrete lifting – also known as slabjacking or polyurethane foam injection – are many, including:
- It’s a permanent solution. Polyurethane foam weighs next to nothing and that means it doesn’t add more weight to the soil. Other methods of repairing uneven concrete slabs – for example, mudjacking – might lift the concrete temporarily. However, the cement slurry used in mudjacking is heavy so it adds even more weight to the soil. If the soil was struggling to hold up the slab before, adding more weight to it isn’t the way to go.
- It’s a cost-effective solution. Concrete lifting via poly foam injection doesn’t cost as much as replacing the slab.
- It’s a fast repair. Polyurethane foam injection is a fast procedure and enables you to use the slab as soon as the repair is complete.
- It’s lightweight. Polyurethane foam weighs next to nothing. Compare with mudjacking which adds extra weight to the soil. Adding extra weight to soil that’s already having trouble supporting a slab, could cause the slab to sink even deeper into the soil.
- It won’t harm the environment. Polyurethane foam won’t leach harmful chemicals into the ground. Therefore, it’s a green solution that you can feel comfortable using.
- Level concrete just looks good! Sunken, uneven concrete is an eyesore.
What Causes Concrete Slabs to Sink or Become Uneven?
Concrete slabs sink for various reasons including…
Drainage problems. Excess water can wash away soil under a slab leave and behind voids that the slab will sink into.
Soil that can’t support the slab. Not every type of soil is strong enough to support a heavy concrete slab.
Expansive soil. Expansive soil swells when it absorbs water and shrinks when it dries out. Over time, this can lead to uneven slabs.
Invasive tree roots. The roots push against the slab and cause sections of it to become uneven.
What are the Different Ways to Lift a Concrete Slab?
Traditionally, sunken concrete slabs were repaired either via “mudjacking”, or by digging up the uneven slab and pouring a new one. These methods are problematic though. We’ll explain how they work and then we’ll explain how poly foam injection works. You’ll agree with us that poly foam injection is the best way to repair an uneven concrete slab.
Mudjacking lifts and levels an uneven slab by injecting a cement slurry under it. The problem with this method is the cement slurry weighs a lot. If the soil was already struggling to support the slab, adding something heavy to it could cause the slab to sink even deeper.
Concrete replacement means digging up the old slab and pouring a new one. This is an expensive and time consuming repair. A new concrete slab takes time to dry and cure. So, you won’t be able to use it right away. Also, if the slab sunk because the soil couldn’t support it, the new slab will have the same problem. You haven’t solved anything.
You should never add concrete on top of an uneven slab in order to even it out. This just adds more weight to an already sinking slab.
Polyurethane Foam Injection
Polyurethane foam injection (also known as ‘’slabjacking’’) is a minimally-invasive, cost-effective procedure that use an extremely lightweight foam to lift a sunken slab. It’s a quick repair, and when it’s done you can start using the slab again right away.
