How It's Lifted
Most concrete raising jobs will take a few hours - start to finish - and your concrete will be ready for use immediately upon completion! Polyurethane concrete raising uses a foam material that is injected under the slab. When the components of this material are mixed, a reaction causes the material to expand. This expanded foam fills any voids beneath the slab and raises the concrete. This material will never lose density, is permanent, and weighs only about 2lbs. Per cubic foot.
1 Cost Effective: Concrete raising is typically about half the cost of replacing the same concrete.
2 Time: Ready to use immediately! You can drive on, walk on, and play on it the same day!
3 Clean Work Environment: No concrete or grout splatter and no wash down needed. No heavy equipment will drive through your lawn and disrupt your landscape.
4 Smaller Holes: Polyurethane concrete raising drills a nearly invisible 5/8 inch hole and the process calls for considerably fewer holes than traditional mudjacking; Minimal patchwork needed.
5 Lightweight: This material will never lose its density, is permanent and weighs only 2lbs. per cubic foot. Compared to traditional Mudjacking material, which weighs on average of 100lbs per cubic foot.
6 Green: HMI foam is the top-of-the-line eco friendly material. Every time concrete is raised, we are saving concrete slabs from landfills by raising versus replacing concrete!
All solid slabs of concrete can be raised & stabilized. Gravel areas, blacktop and pavers sitting in sand can not be raised but the soil underneath can be stabilized with Deep Fomjection™. Slabs of concrete that are badly cracked may be too damaged to lift.
