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 another repair. The polyurethane foam weighs next to nothing and that means it won’t burden the soil with additional weight. While a technique called “mudjacking” might lift the concrete for a period of time, the cement slurry used to raise the slab is heavy. If the soil wasn’t able to support the concrete before, adding a heavy cement slurry to it isn’t going to help. In fact, it could make the slab sink even more and then you’ll need another repair.

  • It costs less than replacing the slab. Digging up and replacing a slab is both expensive and time-consuming.

  • It’s quickly implemented. Polyurethane foam injection is not only a quick procedure, but it enables you to use the slab immediately after the repair is complete.

  • Polyurethane foam is extremely lightweight. It won’t add more weight to soil that may already be having trouble supporting the slab.

  • Polyurethane foam injection is a green solution. Polyurethane foam is an environmentally-friendly repair method that won’t release harmful chemicals into the soil.

  • 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…

Water has washed away the soil.  When this happens it will leave behind voids that the slab will sink into, becoming uneven.

The soil can’t support the slab. There are a variety of types of soil. Some are stronger than others. If the soil under the slab is weak, the slab will start to sink and become uneven.

Expansive soil. Expansive soils are those that swell and expand in size as they absorb moisture. When they dry out, they shrink. This movement in the soil can – over time – cause a concrete slab to become uneven.

Tree roots. Tree roots pushing against a slab can cause sections of it to become uneven.

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

In the past, uneven concrete slabs were fixed using one of two methods: replacing the slab or via a procedure commonly referred to as ”mudjacking”. Neither one was the best solution for fixing a sunken sidewalk, pool deck, or driveway, as you shall see. That’s why, today, most sunken slabs are repaired using polyurethane foam.

Mudjacking

Mudjacking uses a slurry consisting of soil, water, and cement, to lift a sunken slab. However, because the slurry contains cement, it’s pretty heavy. This is a problem if the slab sunk because th
