Not many people are aware that expanding spray foam may be used to level a slab of concrete. With polyurethane, FOAMEXperts is a specialist in concrete lifting. The most frequent concrete faults are repaired using a state-of-the-art spray foam method.
Expanding Foam Can Be Used To Fix Common Concrete Problems
Polyurethane foam may be used to repair common concrete issues such as sinking and settling concrete. When the supporting soil becomes unstable, the concrete might begin to sink. Insufficient compaction and erosion may cause settlement of sidewalks, driveways, porches, and other slab work.
When working with shifting soil, we employ a foam mixture that provides additional support and stability. When it comes to leveling concrete, polyurethane foam is the best option. During the injection process, the foam travels and expands under the concrete surface. With its expansion, the foam covers any fractures and crevices under the concrete slab, as well as any holes and cracks in the concrete slab. The foam starts to elevate the sunken concrete as soon as the voids are filled with foam.
Expanding Foam Is A Long-Lasting Solution
You can be certain that your concrete repairs will be a long-lasting solution thanks to the high grade spray foam that we employ. Concrete is supported by a stronger, more robust foundation created by polyurethane foam bonding with the earth. As an added bonus, expanding foam is water resistant, so it will not decay and will give a long-term solution for sinking or settling concrete.
Rises The Concrete In A Safe Manner
Known as PolyLift or Polyjacking, polyurethane concrete lifting is a technique for raising and stabilizing concrete slabs that employs high-density geotechnical expanding foam in a safe manner. Spray foam insulation is made using materials and equipment that are quite similar to those used in concrete lifting; however, the foam used in concrete lifting is much stronger.
When repairing a polyurethane injection system, the first step is to drill holes that are the size of pennies. It is the high-density polyurethane foam that is being sprayed through the perforations that will begin to fill all of the spaces underneath the concrete..
At each injection hole, the foam may extend by up to 7 feet. Elevating and stabilizing the concrete while filling any gaps between the concrete and surrounding earth are two of its primary functions. With filling the concrete you can expect your problem to be fixed in a quick and safe manner.
Great For Big And Heavy Or Delicate Concrete Pieces
It is most effective for big, heavy, or delicate concrete slabs when using polyurethane concrete elevating. Because of its rapid drying period, it is also ideal for concrete that must return to service rapidly, such as highways.
Because polyurethane does not degrade over time like “mud” or sand/cement, it is preferable to these alternatives. Consequently, the repair provides a long-term remedy.
