The Benefits of Commercial Concrete Levelling with Polyurethane Foam

The Benefits of Commercial Concrete Levelling with Polyurethane Foam

Commercial buildings are big, and therefore they need a solid foundation to ensure that the structure is supported evenly. Commercial building foundations tend to be more susceptible to wear and tear like settling because of the amount of weight they have to support. Concrete foundation slabs are used for commercial buildings because they are durable and don't quickly deteriorate. However, these concrete slabs can begin to settle for many reasons over time. In the past, mudjacking was the only way to lift and level these concrete slabs. Today, many contractors use polyurethane foam slab jacking to raise settled concrete instead. But why should you choose polyurethane concrete raising instead of mudjacking? We'll tell you! 

Polyurethane foam is an innovative product that changes the way commercial concrete leveling is done. Using polyurethane foam to raise concrete foundation slabs requires drilling a few 5/8 inch holes through the concrete slab. The holes are drilled quickly and efficiently, and the foam is then injected into the holes, raising the slab from beneath. No heavy machinery is needed for this process. This allows contractors to raise concrete slabs with minimal interruptions to services. Mudjacking requires drilling many two-inch holes and piping a slurry into the ground below the slab. The slurry must be mixed on-site, and the process can be very messy. The mudjacking method requires extra time, adding to labour costs once the process has been completed. This is not a concern with polyurethane foam concrete raising. 

Polyurethane foam is environmentally friendly because it is made partly from recycled materials. It doesn't contain any toxic chemicals, so it will not pollute the soil and groundwater around the slab. Polyurethane foam is highly long-lasting, making it less likely that the process will have to be completed again, saving you time and money.Levelling concrete with polyurethane foam also keeps concrete slabs out of landfills. Polyurethane slab jacking eliminates the need to install a new concrete slab if the current one is still in good condition but has settled. Polyurethane foam allows contractors to level concrete slabs before the problem becomes too big to handle- reducing labour costs and time spent on the project overall, making it perfect for commercial buildings!

Polyurethane foam is also incredibly strong; it can support up to 4,000 pounds per square foot! Concrete levelling projects using polyurethane foam can be completed in as little as one day, so property owners don't have to worry about lengthy interruptions. This is one of the most significant advantages of using polyurethane foam to lift concrete. After the foam injection process is completed, all the holes are patched, and the concrete slab is restored to its former beauty. The cost of polyurethane foam concrete leveling can vary depending on the size of the project and how much material it requires. Still, as a general rule, it's much less expensive to raise concrete than it is to replace it.

Commercial concrete levelling with polyurethane foam has many benefits. Levelling concrete with polyurethane foam is quick, easy and cost-effective. Polyurethane foam is also eco-friendly because it doesn't use harmful chemicals during production. Quattro Contracting Inc. can re-level sunken concrete slabs quickly and efficiently with our commercial concrete slab levelling process.
