The concrete in your driveway, walkways, patios and garage could move with the ground. Freezing and thawing as well as high moisture or clay content in the soil could cause the ground to move and your concrete to sink. Also, if concrete is poured over areas where soil was disturbed during construction or where there is erosion, it could eventually settle and sink.
You can restore your sunken concrete with polyurethane concrete leveling and lifting, which is a superior alternative to traditional mud-jacking. Concrete leveling or lifting has many benefits, the most advantageous being that it can be done for fraction of the cost of a concrete replacement. Since you don’t have to demolish, remove and replace your old concrete it can also be done in a fraction of the time.
It is also better for the environment as you’re keeping your old concrete out of the landfill. Concrete lifting can save you time because you can use your concrete immediately after the job is done, instead of waiting for days for new concrete to cure.
The Process of Polyurethane Foam Concrete Leveling
Polyurethan concrete leveling is the process of lifting a sunken slab of concrete by injecting a polyurethane foam under the concrete, effectively pushing it up from the ground below until it is level.
Slab-Jack Kings will drill a penny-sized hole, just 5/8″, in your concrete to pump the foam through. The foam is 80% lighter than conventional mudjacking materials and the job will require fewer holes. Afterwards they will patch and finish the holes with cement so they are not noticeable. A typical residential job will take 1 to 2 hours to complete and you can start using your concrete immediately.
