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.

I called in Bay Area Underpinning for foundation work. They were wonderful answering my many concerns, I received prompt return calls, the work was completed within an appropriate time frame, and the best thing he stayed with the estimate to the dollar. I loved the engineer, time frame, and minimal damage repair. I didn't know how my house was going to respond and even the marble and windows handled well. Unfortunately I didn't get the exact lift I wanted in the office even though they tried their hardest. My advice — call them when the problem first arises and the outcome and the house will lift with ease. I definitely recommend BAU. Because I live on a hill one pillar had to be covered – done. I also had a French drain installed to divert the water which was recommended. Thank you

We used BAU to install piers and screw jacks to level our home. Really pleased with the entire process. The communication was stellar and the foreman made sure we understood each step as it was happening. The whole crew was professional, polite, punctual, and very neat. Each day they left the job site nice and tidy. The overall result is amazing. Our floors are level and the house looks great. Would highly recommend for any foundation/leveling needs.

This company gets a 10 out of 10 from me. From my initial consultation with Rick DeSoto to the work performed by foreman Raul, and his team Jonathan and Demareon, this was the best possible experience in working Bay Area Underpinning for the first time. The crew was professional and adjusted the leveling jacks (and even added a couple as was needed) with care and great attention. Pricing was very reasonable too. I'll never trust any other company to do this type of work at my home. 100% satisfied with the work and my interactions with the crew. A+ work performed = A VERY HAPPY CUSTOMER!!!

Foreman Andrew is incredible and a leader. We hired BAU to perform a whole house underpinning job from December 2022-March 2023. Our recently purchased 1950's home sat on expansive clay soil and had been settling for decades. The project was a big job and complicated by the winter rains that occurred throughout many days of the project. Andrew was extremely professional, knowledgeable about every aspect of the job and managed the entire project class and skill.He communicates very effectively and is transparent to assuage any concerns that we had on the project. He also shows up earlier than anyone, and works the entire day, rain or shine, in the mud and trenches with his team. This leadership was impressive. Since the completion of our project, he has remained available and came out to make some minor adjustments promptly and free of charge. Without any hesitation, I would entrust BAU to do my foundation work with the demand that Andrew lead the project. Thank you Andrew and your crew for a job well done.
