Why Is Concrete Slab Lifting Needed?
For various reasons, concrete slabs such as sidewalks, driveways, patios, and pool decks can crack, sink, or become uneven. Concrete slab lifting restores the slab’s structural integrity and prevents further damage.
Benefits Of Slab Lifting
Lifting an uneven concrete slab, such as a sidewalk or driveway, can provide a multitude of benefits including the following:
Slab lifting eliminates any trip hazards and reduces the risk of injury and potential liability issues.
Gaps created by uneven concrete can allow weeds to grow, leading to further damage to the slab. Lifting the slab eliminates these gaps and prevents future damage from occurring.
Uneven slabs can cause water to pool in certain areas, creating drainage problems and leading to erosion of the surrounding soil. By leveling the slab, it can improve the water flow and drainage, reducing the risk of erosion and further damage to the surrounding area.
Another benefit of lifting an uneven slab is improved curb appeal and property value. Uneven slabs can be unsightly and take away from the overall aesthetic of the property. Leveling the slab can improve the overall look of the property and increase its value.
Lifting an uneven concrete slab can be a cost-effective solution compared to replacing the slab. It can also be completed quickly and with minimal disruption to daily activities or traffic flow.
Can You Do Slab Lifting Yourself?
No, slab lifting is not a DIY project. Lifting an uneven slab should be done by a professional, using specialized equipment and techniques. Attempting to lift or repair the slab on your own can lead to further damage and potential safety hazards.
SLAB REPAIR IN FLORIDA
Florida homeowners often experience cracks and settlement of their concrete slabs. Due to the limestone in the ground or poorly compacted soil beneath the slab, this occurrence is relatively common. We offer underpinning solutions and injection solutions to resolve your slab repair Florida needs. These underpinning tools are called helical slab brackets. These brackets can be installed easily, and are meant to supply years of support. They are used in conjunction with helical piers. The bracket is installed on top of the helical pier to add strength to your concrete slab. They can be used on floating or poured on grade slabs.
If you are looking to stabilize your slab it can be done by using our PrimeFlex 985 series of high-quality products. They are foam resins that are injected using a two-component pump. If you have a simple project we can use our PrimeFlex 985 and inject it at ambient temperature using Flowmaster 1:1 mix. Our PrimeFlex 985 will flow and fill the voids and cavities. The foam will fully expand and be traffic ready in only 15 minutes. It can withstand even heavy traffic loads.
Your slab for your home or garage is a supporting structure for the whole house. Don’t wait if you notice sloping or cracks. Remember also that sinkholes are common in the Florida area, so if you notice cracks, it is time to contact our team.

There comes a time when you need to lift a concrete highway, building, or warehouse floor because of settlement problems. We can do this using our two-step system. We first make sure the sub-grade is consolidated. We do this by filling in the voids and loosely compacting the soil. We can choose to do this using either compaction grouting or permeation grouting. Compaction grouting is a process where we rapidly expand polyurethane foam and inject it into the ground. This foam will fill the voids and compact the surrounding soil using expansive pressure. This compaction grouting is done with any Precision Lift series, products wise.
If we use permeation grouting, the process is a little slower because of the slower reacting foam that is injected into the soil. It then permeates the soil before it expands. Once it is cured. Prime Flex will glue the soil particles together. We use Prime Flex 910 for permeation grouting. Another two components are using Prime Flex 920 and Hydro Gel SX.
Once all of your stabilization is done we move on to the second step, the Precision Lift process. In this process, we use rapidly expanding foam that is injected underneath the slab in short bursts. With this, we can then control the slab lift. With our special equipment, we are able to lift the slab. Our staff is well trained on this process.
