Concrete leveling is designed for fixing uneven concrete surfaces by injecting a material underneath the affected slab. Most settlement is caused by poor soil conditions, such as soil erosion and groundwater migration. If you have an uneven slab, the soil underneath has created voids and needs to be filled. This can be repaired with Poly Rise – Slab Lifting Technology. Poly Rise is the most effective concrete repair on today’s market. The installation process uses high-density polyurethane foam to lift and stabilize sunken concrete slabs and for leveling concrete floors back to normal. Years ago, it was used by commercial and industrial projects. Because of its unlimited benefits, today polyurethane concrete slab lifting is used for both commercial and residential projects. It can be applied to sidewalks, warehouses, courtyards, garage floors, basement floors, pool decks, porches, patios, concrete driveway repair and much more.
The Poly Rise – Slab Lifting Technology process is relatively quick and simple with the proper poly equipment and material. First, small 5/8 holes are drilled into the affected area. Next, high-density foam is injected under the slab through the holes. As the material is injected, it expands and fills in voids. It lifts and levels the slab back to its original height. Finally, all holes are filled which takes 15 minutes to set. After curing, the concrete slab is ready for use. This foam works well as a slab lift and Poly Rise – Slab Lifting Technology is a great concrete leveler.
Benefits of Poly Rise
Though Poly Rise – Slab Lifting Technology is more expensive than mudjacking, it offers more benefits than other concrete slab leveling methods. Some benefits of polyurethane concrete raising include:
- No excavation is needed
- Cures in 15 minutes
- Seals cracks and joints
- Water resistant
- Never loses density or erodes
- Prevents future settlement by fixing soil issues underneath the slab
- Same day use
- Cheaper than concrete replacement
- Requires fewer and smaller drill holes
- Extreme lifting capability
- Will not shrink
- Tensile strength
- Will not burden soil
- Requires one poly truck and less manpower than mudjacking
