What are the Dangers of Sunken and Settled Concrete Slabs?
Concrete is widely considered one of the most durable construction materials, but it is not impervious to damage. Several factors contribute to the sinking and settling of concrete slabs, with excessive moisture in the soil and inadequate soil compaction during construction being the most common culprits. Sunken and settled concrete slabs present a significant hazard, especially around pools, patios and other outdoor spaces, as they can create tripping hazards for people using your property. Homeowners can even be held liable for injuries caused by sunken and settled concrete slabs on their properties. Sunken and settled concrete slabs aren't just hazardous to people; they can also lead to water pooling around your foundation, potentially causing severe structural damage to your home. To mitigate the dangers of tripping and safeguard your foundation, promptly addressing sunken and settled slabs is crucial. This is where polyurethane concrete lifting comes in!
What is Polyurethane Concrete Lifting?
When it comes to concrete lifting and levelling, polyurethane foam emerges as the optimal choice due to its strength, lightweight nature, and durability. This specialized concrete lifting foam expands to fill voids and gaps beneath your pool deck or patio, providing a long-lasting solution to the problem of settled concrete slabs. Our polyurethane foam is eco-friendly, as it comprises partly recycled materials and lacks toxic chemicals. Once cured, it becomes completely inert, making it safe for use in areas frequented by both humans and pets, such as your backyard. With excellent moisture resistance, polyurethane foam is ideal for applications near pools or areas prone to frequent rainfall. It withstands the elements, resisting shrinkage, warping, and cracking. These advantages render polyurethane foam concrete lifting superior to conventional methods like mudjacking.
What is The Polyurethane Concrete Lifting Process?
Polyurethane concrete lifting is a quick and efficient process, allowing you to regain full use of your outdoor space in as little as a few hours for smaller projects like patios and pool decks. Our process begins with carefully drilling small 5/8-inch holes on the sunken concrete slab's surface. Next, we inject the polyurethane foam into the port holes, where it expands and lifts the concrete slab back to its original position. Once the slab is levelled, we patch the holes, and the job is complete! Cleanup is a breeze since no excavation or digging is necessary. Our process doesn't require heavy equipment, eliminating concerns about damage to your yard or landscaping. With its versatility, our polyurethane concrete lifting technique can also be applied to various residential areas, including driveways, walkways, sidewalks, basement floors, and garage floors!
