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’ll only need to repair it once. Polyurethane foam doesn’t weight much at all, and won’t add additional weight to the soil under the slab. Another method for repairing a sinking slab – mudjacking – uses a heavy cement slurry to lift the slab. This could easily have the opposite effect because if the soil already wasn’t able to support the slab, mudjacking could make it worse and you’ll find yourself facing another repair.

  • It’s an inexpensive solution. Compared to digging up and replacing the sunken slab, concrete leveling and lifting via polyurethane foam injection is a cost-effective solution.

  • It usually only takes a few hours. Most polyurethane foam injection lifting and leveling jobs only take a few hours, and then you can use the slab immediately after the repair is complete.

  • It’s lightweight. Polyurethane foam is able to easily lift and level concrete without adding extra weight to the soil. That means your slab won’t start to sink again.

  • It’s a green solution. Polyurethane foam doesn’t release harmful chemicals into the soil. Therefore, this is an environmentally-friendly solution 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 and become uneven for a variety of reasons including…

Drainage problems. Too much water under a slab will wash away soil and leave voids behind.

Weak soil that can’t hold up the slab. Not all soils have the capability to support a heavy concrete slab.

Expansive soil. If your concrete slab is sitting atop expansive soil that expands as it soaks up water and shrinks as it dries out, it will eventually become uneven.

Invasive tree roots. You can probably guess how this happens. Tree 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?

Traditionally, two different methods were used to repair an uneven concrete slab: a procedure calling ”mudjacking” and digging up the old slab and pouring a new one. Both solutions though have their drawbacks as you shall see. Today, almost all uneven concrete slabs are repaired via Polyurethane Foam Injection.

Mudjacking

Mudjacking uses a slurry containing water, soil, and cement to lift the sunken slab. The main problem with this technique is the weight of the slurry. It’s heavy because it contains cement. If the soil was already having difficulty supporting your sidewalk or driveway, adding even more weight to it in the form of a cement slurry is
