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.

In the not-so-distant past, sunken concrete slabs were fixed either by digging them up and replacing them or via something called ‘’mudjacking’’. These weren’t the best solutions 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 is a repair technique that involves injecting a slurry – made up of soil, water, and cement – under the slab in order to lift it back into position. The problem with this repair method is the weight of the slurry. It’s pretty heavy because it contains cement. If the soil under the slab was already struggling to support it, placing a cement slurry on top of it certainly isn’t going to help.

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.

Seawall Repair

Seawalls serve as a barrier between land and water, and protect Florida’s beachfront homes from erosion. However, seawalls themselves can erode over time. This is caused by tidal fluctuations, hurricanes and tropical storms, and a slowly rising sea level. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll be out an inspection and free estimate.
