Get Your Backyard Ready for Summer: Levelling Pool Decks and Patios
Summer is right around the corner, and you might be noticing your pool deck or patio might be starting to show its age. Harsh winter weather and wet spring conditions can be brutal on your concrete slabs. Being exposed to the cold weather and extra water, your concrete slabs may have sunk, and even developed cracks and holes. All is not lost, though! The experts at SanRemo Poly-Foam can help you repair those sunken and settled concrete slabs before the hot summer weather arrives! We have the perfect way to fix your sunken concrete without replacing it entirely (which would be very expensive). Polyurethane concrete lifting, also known as slab jacking or poly jacking, is the best method to lift your sunken pool deck or patio back into its original position before summer is in full swing! Read on to learn more!
Concrete is strong, but it isn't invincible. Concrete slabs can begin to sink and settle for many reasons. The most common is poor soil compaction during construction or excess moisture present in the soil. When concrete slabs start to sink and settle, they can become dangerous. Sunken concrete can create tripping hazards, which can be especially dangerous around pools. As a homeowner, you might be liable for injuries caused by sunken concrete on your property. Sunken concrete slabs aren't just dangerous to people; they can cause water to pool around your home and cause severe foundation problems. To avoid tripping hazards and foundation issues, you should have your sunken slabs raised as soon as possible.
Polyurethane foam is an excellent option for outdoor concrete repair and restoration because it's lightweight and durable. It expands to fill holes and voids beneath your patio or pool deck, resulting in a more permanent solution to sunken slabs. Polyurethane foam is also environmentally friendly. It doesn't contain toxic chemicals and is completely inert once cured. This makes it the best product to use in areas that people and pets frequent, like your backyard. Polyurethane is also resistant to moisture, working well under patios and other outdoor structures. The foam will withstand the elements and resist cracking, shrinking or warping.
Polyurethane concrete levelling is a fast and efficient process. We can complete the work in as little as a day for smaller jobs like pool decks and patios. That means you won't have to wait long periods to use your outdoor space! We begin by drilling small dime-sized holes in the top of your concrete slab. We then inject the polyurethane foam beneath your concrete slab, which expands and fills any voids beneath the slab, lifting it to its original level. Once the area is level again, we patch the holes, and the job is done! Clean-up is easy since the foam is injected, and there is no digging or excavating involved. This process also doesn't require us to use any heavy equipment on your property, so you don't have to be concerned about your landscaping being damaged! Our polyurethane concrete levelling process can be used for various residential applications, such as sidewalks, driveways, garage floors, walkways and basement floors!
