Why you should raise your slab?

Be Green

By raising your concrete you are saving your current slab from being torn out and deposited at a landfill.

Appearance

Eye sores and additional structural cracks can be the result of unlevel concrete.

Safety

Trip hazards can harm you, your family and allows your property to be open for unwanted liability.

Home Value

Trying to sell your home? First appearance is everything to a home buyer.

Faster Results

Your slab problems will only worsen in time, fix it now and avoid the hassel later. Raising concrete with poly foam often takes a couple of hours and is ready immediately upon completetion/

Cost

You can raise your concrete for less than half the price of replacing the concrete slab.

1.Drill

Once everything is prepped and the hose and materials are in place, the poly-urethane foam is injected through the holes which fills the space underneath the con-crete slab, using the concrete slab itself to drive the foam into the crevices, thereby lifting the concrete back to its original, correct level.

2.Pump

Once everything is prepped and the hose and materials are in place, the poly-urethane foam is injected through the holes which fills the space underneath the con-crete slab, using the concrete slab itself to drive the foam into the crevices, thereby lifting the concrete back to its original, correct level.

3.Patch

Once everything is prepped and the hose and materials are in place, the poly-urethane foam is injected through the holes which fills the space underneath the con-crete slab, using the concrete slab itself to drive the foam into the crevices, thereby lifting the concrete back to its original, correct level.

Why does concrete settle?

Poor Soil Conditions

Clay-rich soils are ‘elastic.’ They expand and contract with moisture content. As soils become saturated with water, the clay expands and loses strength. This condition allows slabs to sink just like standing in wet mud. This can oc-cur from heavy rains, melting snow or plumbing leaks.

Poor Compaction

Many homes are built on backfilled soils. If the soil is not compact-ed correctly, backfill will slowly and unevenly compact, sometimes over a period of a year, allowing slabs to settle.

Tree Roots

Trees and large shrubs can consume up to 30 gallons of water a day. If located near concrete, the loss of water in the soil will make the soil contract and can cause the slabs to settle.

Poor Drainage

Improper drainage can cause soil instability by creating areas of satu-rated soils allowing the slabs to settle. Poor drainage can be typical to the area, or as minor as a misplaced down spout.

Benefits of Polyurethane Foam

Cost Effective

Concrete raising is typically about half the cost of replacing the same concrete.

Clean Work Environment

No concrete or grout splatter and no wash down needed.

Smaller Holes

Polyurethane concrete raising drills a nearly invisible 5/8 inch hole.

Lightweight

This material will never lose density, is permanent and weighs only about 2lbs. per cubic foot. Compared to traditional Mud-jacking material weights on average 100 lbs per cubic foot.
