Repair or Replace Sunken Concrete Slabs: Which Is Better?

Repair or Replace Sunken Concrete Slabs: Which Is Better?

Concrete is known as the most commonly used construction material worldwide, but it can be costly to replace. Polyurethane concrete lifting is an efficient and cost-effective way to lift your concrete slab back to its original position without having to pour a new one. Polyurethane concrete levelling is a fast process that lifts settled concrete slabs by injecting polyurethane foam beneath the sunken slab to raise it back to its original position. You might be wondering, should I replace or repair my sunken concrete slab, and which is better? Here are some reasons to consider polyurethane concrete lifting over replacing the slab.

Polyurethane Concrete Lifting is Environmentally Friendly

More people than ever are choosing polyurethane concrete lifting as an alternative to slab replacement. Polyurethane concrete leveling is a great option because it doesn't require pouring a new concrete slab. The cost to repair sunken slabs is significantly less than replacing them. With polyurethane concrete levelling, you're not tearing out any more than you need to. This leads to using less labour, and it also takes less time than concrete replacement, which saves you money. Polyurethane concrete lifting also greatly reduces environmental impact because raised concrete slabs will not end up in landfills. Our polyurethane foam is made of partly recycled materials and contains no harsh or toxic chemicals that can seep into the surrounding soil over time, adding to its environmental friendliness.

Polyurethane Concrete Lifting is Fast

Polyurethane concrete levelling is quicker and easier than slab replacement. Smaller projects like driveways or sidewalks can take just a few hours. Polyurethane concrete raising is the fastest and cleanest concrete lifting method. With this method, the lifted area is ready for use almost immediately after the work is complete. When you have a new concrete slab poured, you won't be able to use the area for several days.  Polyurethane concrete levelling will eliminate that wait time. Polyurethane concrete lifting is a noninvasive process and doesn't require any heavy equipment. Polyurethane foam makes repairing almost any type of damaged concrete slab quickly and efficiently.   

Polyurethane Concrete Lifting is Long-Lasting

Raising concrete with polyurethane foam is a long-lasting alternative to slab replacement and other methods like mudjacking. Our polyurethane foam is water-resistant, meaning it won't break down over time if water is present in the soil. In most cases, polyurethane concrete lifting is a permanent solution to settled slabs, which will save you money on future repair costs. Polyurethane foam is also incredibly strong. Polyurethane foam is frequently used for highway repairs because of its quick application and durability. Polyurethane foam has been specifically developed for lifting and supporting concrete slabs. It has a proven track record as a high-performance concrete repair solution.
