Residential Concrete Levelling

Residential Concrete Lift & Levelling

Using polyurethane foam instead replacing your concrete slabs comes with many advantages and will save you time and money. Polyurethane concrete lifting often saves homeowners money and time, often at a fraction of the cost of replacing concrete! We regularly consult with homeowners on whether they should repair or replace their concrete slabs. Many homeowners are thrilled to learn that their concrete can be perfectly aligned as well as stabilized for longevity, often times in a matter of just a few hours. Polyurethane foam concrete raising is the preferred solution compared to the old-fashioned mudjacking method.

Polyurethane Residential Concrete Lifting & Levelling Mudjacking

Homeowners often have questions about the cost and amount of time it takes to lift sunken slabs with polyurethane foam. It is important to keep in mind that replacement and repair will always cost far more than maintenance. Concrete is really no different than changing the oil in your car; oil changes are affordable, repairs can be costly, and replacement will be expensive. When you notice a small crack, you should never wait until it is so big that it can no longer be repaired. Just like when your driveway or sidewalk begins to tilt towards your home's foundation, why wait for the water to start leaking into your basement before having it fixed? The slope should be addressed immediately if water is pooling beside the foundation. (We do require a walkway to be at least 4 feet wide. We can handle any length!)

Another frequent question homeowners have is why their concrete slabs have settled in the first place. One common reason for concrete settlement is poor compaction of backfill when the home was built. When this occurs, the soil will settle and form voids underneath the concrete slab, which will reduce its support and over time causes settlement.

The length of the steel dowels is another common reason why concrete slabs settle. Generally, the dowel (a short piece of rebar) is spaced at around 16 to 24 inches. The dowel is then inserted into a drilled hole in the foundation, and one end is anchored to the rebar in the concrete slab. These rebar dowels will pull out of the foundation if the holes are not drilled at the proper angle, are not deep enough into the foundation, or if they are too big. Rebar dowels may also rust through and oftentimes be too small to support the entire weight of the concrete slab.
