Polyurethane Concrete Raising
Concrete Lifting / Mudjacking
Homeowners and property managers may experience concrete becoming uneven on:
- Front Walks
- Pool Decks
Any of these situations can pose significant safety and potential liability issues.
Concrete replacement can be expensive
But you don't have to always replace your driveway, sidewalk, patio or parking area.
Let us do a free inspection to see what the right solution for you might be.
Ploy-Lifting (similar to mudjacking) is an affordable alternative to replacing your concrete. If your sidewalk, driveway, garage floor, or any flat concrete surface has sunk, lifting is an affordable quick solution that will save you money. Plus you save time as whatever is lifted, can be put back into use quicker than mudjacking or replacement.
Be environmentally friendly! Repair your concrete instead of replacing it!
Concrete Lifting FAQ
What can be done with settled concrete?
Grinding: Inexpensive option, but not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Grinding concrete exposes the aggregate in the concrete. The integrity and strength of the concrete slab is also compromised during this process. If the concrete continues to settle, a ground slab can no longer be raised and leveled.
Replacement: Most expensive and time consuming option to level concrete. Colors of slabs will not match and can contribute to significant downtime of the area for curing time.
Raising & Stabilizing: Settled concrete is commonly a result of erosion or poor soil conditions below a slab. Polyurethane concrete raising supports sunken or unstable concrete slabs by drilling holes and pumping material under the slab to permanently lift and support the concrete.
Concrete Raising is also known as mudjacking, slabjacking, pressure grouting, foam jacking, and polyjacking. Mudjacking and foamjacking is the process of pumping material under a sunken slab of concrete to lift it. Other uses include joint stabilization or filling voids to support the weight of a concrete slab. On residential, commercial, and municipal levels, raising concrete is a cost-effective alternative to replacing concrete typically saving 50%. The best way to recycle concrete, foamjacking will avoid the cost of demolition, removal and landscaping. There are two types of concrete lifting, polyurethane foam which uses a lightweight structural foam and traditional mudjacking which uses a slurry of mud.
The general rule of thumb is "if we can drill through it, we can raise it". We have raised slabs as thick as 16" - these were solid, heavy steps going to a front stoop.
Can you lift concrete in winter?
If the project is outside, the simple answer is no. When soil freezes it becomes stuck to the concrete above it, and becomes impossible to lift or raise with any method. We can, however, bid your project and get you on the schedule for spring!
Can you raise asphalt/blacktop?
The simple answer is no. Although we can drill through and pump foam underneath blacktop, the material is not hard like concrete or pavement. The surface will break and bend, leaving an undesirable result. Best to ask us for a quote on replacing your asphalt with strong durable concrete.
The Perfect Solution for High-traffic Areas
Our three-step process is quick, strong, and durable, Unlike new concrete, when we leave the job site there is no curing time or weight restrictions. A perfect solution for high traffic areas such as schools, shopping malls, hospitals, parks, businesses, and other public areas.
Poly Foam is Environmentally-friendly
Our polyurethane is an environmentally friendly, dual component foam specifically engineered for raising, leveling, and stabilizing concrete. The patented materials (U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 61/583.295) are made from recycled components, making it the “greenest” polyurethane foam on the earth.
