Benefits Of Concrete Lifting Via Polyurethane Foam Injection

The benefits of 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 lifting via polyurethane foam injection is a cost-effective solution.
  • It usually only takes a few hours. Most polyurethane foam injection lifting 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 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.
  • Even 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 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 isn’t going to help.

Concrete Repair

Tearing up an uneven slab and pouring a new one is an expensive, time-consuming fix. Whenever you pour a new concrete slab, you need to give it time to harden (cure) and dry. That means you won’t be able to use it right away. This is inconvenient. Also, if the soil wasn’t able to hold up the old slab, it won’t be able to hold up the new one either.

Polyurethane Foam Injection

Polyurethane foam injection (also known as ‘’slabjacking’’) is an inexpensive and minimally-invasive technique that injects a super lightweight and rapidly-expanding foam under a concrete slab in order to raise it back to its original position. It’s a quick repair, and when it’s done you can start using the slab again right away.

We recently had foundation work completed. The crew was on time every day and worked hard to keep a very dirty job and their traffic through the house to a minimum. The crew chief, Robert Busch, was amazing. Telling us what was planned for the day, any unforeseen problems, and giving us a recap of what was completed daily. We could not have had a better experience with his communication and hard work. Everyone was respectful and friendly. I also thought that the evaluation and estimate experience was positive. Jim communicated clearly and we never felt that work being suggested was unnecessary. He explained clearly and showed us pictures of what was going on under the house.Hope we never need them again, but would use them in a flash.
