Concrete Leveling and Lifting

Uneven concrete is an unsightly safety hazard that also lowers your home’s property value. Don’t wait until someone gets injured and sues you. Repair your uneven concrete slab today. With polyurethane foam injection, most repair jobs take no more than a few hours.
Traditionally, sunken slabs were repaired either by replacing the slab, or by lifting it via mudjacking. Neither solution was ideal though.
Tearing up a slab and then pouring a new one is a costly fix that takes time to implement. Newly-poured concrete needs a certain amount of time to dry and harden. During that time, you can’t use the slab. Also, most slabs sink because the soil isn’t able to support them. If this is the case, the same thing will happen to the new slab.
Mudjacking uses a cement slurry to lift and level the slab. However, because the slurry is heavy (it contains cement), it can cause the slab to sink even deeper into the soil. This is because – as we pointed out above – most slabs sink because the soil isn’t able to support them. Adding a heavy slurry to the soil adds even more weight. Not what you want to do.
Today, almost all uneven slabs are lifted via a technique known as polyurethane foam injection. The procedure usually takes no more than a few hours, and involves drilling small holes in the slab (they’ll be filled later), and then using them to inject the polyurethane foam under the slab. The foam expands immediately and this is what lifts the slab. The foam will not leach harmful chemicals into the soil, so it’s an environmentally-friendly solution.
