If you’ve ever tripped and fallen while walking on an uneven concrete slab, you know they’re a safety hazard. If someone else trips, falls, and gets injured though you could find yourself facing a lawsuit. So, this isn’t a repair you want to place on the back burner. The good news is that sunken slabs are easy to repair using polyurethane foam injection.
Prior to polyurethane foam injection, concrete slabs were repaired either by digging up and replacing the sunken slab, or via a repair method called ‘’mudjacking’’. They both have their drawbacks though.
Digging up and replacing an uneven slab is not only expensive, it’s also time-consuming. This is because freshly poured slabs need time to dry and harden (cure). That means you’ll need to wait a certain amount of time before you can use the new slab. Also, if the old slab sunk because the soil wasn’t able to support it, the new slab is going to meet the same fate.
Mudjacking involves injecting a cement slurry under the slab in order to lift it. The problem here is the weight of the slurry. It’s not exactly lightweight since it contains cement. If the soil was already having trouble holding up the slab, what do you think is going to happen when you add even more weight to it the form of a cement slurry?
Today, the vast majority of sunken slabs are raised via polyurethane foam injection. This minimally-invasive repair method is quick, less expensive than replacing the slab, and there’s no downtime. You can begin using the slab again as soon as the repair is done, and because the foam is ultra lightweight, it won’t add more weight to the soil.
