Concrete Lifting Before Picture
Concrete Lifting After Picture

Polyurethane foam can be successfully used in Concrete Lifting/Leveling applications. The polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete, the expansion processes of the foam creates the force that lifts the concrete. The foam cures to a stable non toxic water resistant medium. Precise control of the lift can be easily achieved.

There are two factors to consider with broken or settled concrete:

  1. If concrete is cracked into numerous pieces, badly eroded or showing exposed aggregate: replace concrete.
  2. If concrete is in good condition or you intended to cover the slab with another floor system: polyurethane lift.

Consideration should also be given to what has caused the concrete to settle.

"Why should I lift or level my concrete?"

  • To eliminate a tripping or slipping hazard; which is a safety and a liability issue
  • Aesthetics – to improve the look of a concrete area
  • Preventative maintenance - stabilizing the sub soil can stop the slab from breaking or settling
  • Reduced maintenance
  • More cost effective than replacing the slab
  • Faster than replacement - you can use the area as soon as the work is completed
  • Injection of the polyurethane foam compacts and compresses the sub-soil for a successful and lasting lift
