Should You Repair or Replace Sunken Concrete Slabs?

Should You Repair or Replace Sunken Concrete Slabs?

Concrete is the most regularly used construction material worldwide, but it can be costly to replace. Polyurethane concrete raising is a cost-effective way to return your concrete slab to its original position without having to replace it. Foam jacking is a fast and efficient process that raises settled concrete slabs by injecting a high-density polyurethane foam below the slab to lift it back to its original level. But why is foam jacking better than pouring a new concrete slab? We'll tell you! Here are a few reasons you should consider polyurethane concrete raising over replacement.

More and more people are choosing polyurethane concrete lifting as an alternative to replacement. Foam jacking is an excellent option because it doesn't require pouring new concrete. The cost to repair is significantly less than replacing an entire slab of concrete because you're not tearing out any more than you need to. Foam jacking uses less labour and takes less time than replacement, which will save you money. Foam jacking also reduces environmental impact because lifted concrete slabs don't end up in landfills. The polyurethane foam we use is made partly of recycled materials and doesn't contain harsh and toxic chemicals that will seep into the soil over time, adding to its reduced environmental impact.

Foam jacking is faster and easier than replacement; smaller projects can take a few hours. Polyurethane concrete lifting is the fastest and cleanest concrete lifting process. The area is ready for use almost immediately after the job is complete. The area will be out of service for days when a new concrete slab is poured; polyurethane concrete levelling eliminates that wait time. Polyurethane concrete lifting is noninvasive and doesn't require any heavy equipment. Foam jacking can repair almost any type of damaged concrete quickly and easily. 

Lifting concrete with polyurethane foam is a long-lasting alternative to replacement. Polyurethane foam is water-resistant, so it won't break down over time if water is present. In most cases, foam jacking is a permanent solution, saving you money on repair costs in the future. Polyurethane foam for concrete raising is also very strong. Foam jacking is used frequently in highway repairs because of its strength and quick application. Polyurethane foam has been developed specifically for raising and supporting concrete and has an excellent track record as a high-performance repair solution.

If you want a better alternative to replacing a concrete slab or traditional concrete levelling methods like mudjacking, then polyurethane concrete lifting is for you! With many advantages over mudjacking and concrete replacement, polyurethane concrete levelling can help you save time and money. Polyurethane concrete lifting is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly solution for lifting sunken or settled concrete slabs.
