Concrete Leveling And Concrete Lifting American Canyon CA

Did you land on this page because you’re looking for concrete leveling and concrete lifting in American Canyon CA? If so, we have what you’re looking for! We’re Bay Area Underpinning and we’ve been lifting and leveling sunken concrete sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, and more, since 2005.

We lift concrete slabs for residential and commercial customers using a fast, minimally-invasive technique called polyurethane foam injection (also known as slabjacking). Most jobs can be completed in just a few hours and then the slab is ready for use again.

Sunken Concrete Is Both A Safety Hazard And A Liability

Don’t wait until someone trips, gets injured, and sues you. Fix your uneven concrete slabs today using polyurethane foam injection.

We are able to level sunken or settled concrete slabs in American Canyon, CA including, but not limited to…

Benefits Of Concrete Leveling And Concrete Lifting Via Polyurethane Foam Injection

The benefits of concrete leveling and concrete lifting – also known as slabjacking or polyurethane foam injection – are many, including:

  • It’s a one-time repair. Many slabs sink because the soil isn’t able to support them. Mudjacking, another method of lifting sunken concrete, uses a heavy cement slurry to lift the slab. Temporarily, this works. However, the slurry just adds additional weight to the soil, and eventually the slab will start to sink again. Polyurethane foam doesn’t burden the soil with additional weight, and that means your slab will stay lifted.

  • It’s a cost-effective solution. Digging up and replacing a slab is expensive and time-consuming. Polyurethane foam is a cost-effective alternative.

  • Most jobs take only a few hours. Polyurethane foam injection is a fast procedure. You can also use the slab immediately after the repair is complete.

  • It’s lightweight. Polyurethane foam is extremely lightweight and won’t add extra weight to the soil.

  • Polyurethane foam won’t harm the environment. Polyurethane foam doesn’t release harmful chemicals into the soil. This makes it a green solution.

  • Level concrete just looks good! Sunken, uneven concrete is an eyesore.

What Causes Concrete Slabs To Sink Or Become Uneven?

Concrete slabs sink and become uneven for a variety of reasons including…

Drainage problems. If there’s too much water in the soil under the slab, it can cause erosion and lead to voids.

Weak soil. Not all soils are alike. Some are unable to hold up a heavy concrete slab.

Expansive soil. Expansive soil swells when it soaks up water and shrinks when it dries out. This seasonally-related cycle of swelling and shrinking will eventually cause an uneven slab.

Invasive tree roots. You can probably guess how this happens. The roots push against the slab and cause sections of it to become uneven.

What Are The Different Ways To Lift And Level A Concrete Slab?

The two “old school” methods of fixing a sunken concrete slab were digging up and replacing the slab, and mudjacking. Both methods were less than ideal though. That’s why today, polyurethane foam injection is the preferred method for lifting and leveling a concrete slab.

Before concrete slab lifting

Mudjacking

Mudjacking uses a cement-based slurry to lift a sunken slab. However, the slurry is heavy because it contains cement. If the soil wasn’t able to support the old slab, it won’t be able to support a slab plus the additional weight of the slurry.

Concrete Replacement

While it’s an expensive and time-consuming fix, digging up the sunken slab and replacing it with a new one certainly seems to solve the problem.  However, if the
