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:

  • You won’t need to redo it. Concrete slabs usually become uneven because the soil under them isn’t strong enough to support the weight. Two older methods of fixing concrete slabs – digging up the old slab and pouring a new one, and mudjacking – don’t solve this problem. If the problem is weak soil, a new slab will sink just like the old one did, and mudjacking adds even more weight to the soil. In contrast, polyurethane foam is ultra lightweight and able to lift the slab without adding more weight to the soil.

  • It’s a cost-effective solution. Polyurethane foam injection is less expensive than tearing up the uneven slab and pouring a new one.

  • Most repairs take only a few hours. Most slabs can be lifted and leveled in just a few hours, and immediately after the repair is complete, you can begin using the slab again.

  • It’s lightweight. Polyurethane foam wont burden the soil with additional weight the way mudjacking does.

  • It’s an environmentally-friendly “green” solution. Don’t worry. Polyurethane foam won’t release any harmful chemicals into the soil under the slab.

  • 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…

Too much water under the slab. Drainage problems can create a situation where there’s too much water under the slab. This can wash away the soil and leave behind voids.

The soil is unable to support the slab. Not all types of soil are alike. Some are not strong enough to support a heavy concrete slab.

Problems with expansive soil. Expansive soils are those that expand when they soak up moisture, and shrink when they dry out. Over time this seasonal swelling-shrinking cycle can cause uneven slabs.

Invasive tree roots. Can you picture how this happens? You’ve probably seen it many times in your life. Tree roots push against a slab and cause areas 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, unlevel slab were tearing up and replacing the slab, or mudjacking. Both had drawbacks though. Tearing up a slab and pouring a new one was a time-consuming job because freshly-poured concrete needs time to dry and harden. Mudjacking, on the other hand, uses a heavy cement slurry to lift the concrete which can cause the slab to sink even more. Today, polyurethane foam injection is the method of choice for lifting a sunken concrete slab.
