Polyurethane Foam Concrete Raising | The New, Green Way to Lift Concrete
Concrete is an incredibly strong material; that's why it is used in construction projects. As strong as concrete is, it is not indestructible. Replacing concrete can be an expensive and disruptive process, but we have the perfect solution. Polyurethane foam concrete raising is an innovative and environmentally-friendly way to lift concrete slabs. It has many benefits compared to other concrete levelling methods. The process is quick, cost-effective and did we mention environmentally friendly? Sanremo Poly-Foam's concrete raising technique is perfect for all your concrete raising needs.
Polyurethane foam concrete raising (sometimes referred to as poly-jacking) is the process of raising sunken or settled concrete using polyurethane foam. Polyurethane foam concrete lifting uses high-density geo-technical expanding foam to raise and stabilize concrete slabs. The material and equipment are similar to what is used in spray foam insulation; however, the foam used for lifting concrete is a lot stronger. Penny-sized holes are drilled in the slab, and then polyurethane foam is injected into the ground below the slab. It then lifts the slab by filling any voids in the soil below. The holes are then patched and filled with a concrete mix immediately after the process is complete. Once the polyurethane foam levelling process is complete, it is left to set for 24 hours. This gives the concrete a strong base that can withstand heavy loads and prevent further sinking or settling. The majority of the time the area can be used within hours, but we recommend letting the polyurethane foam set for 24 hours as a precaution.
The advantages of polyurethane foam concrete lifting are numerous. Polyurethane foam concrete levelling costs less, lasts longer, is safer for both you and your home and is environmentally friendly! Polyurethane foam is designed to raise, level and stabilize concrete. The polyurethane foam we use is comprised of up to 49% recycled material! The foam doesn't contain any harmful materials or toxic chemicals that can potentially seep into the ground around it. Polyurethane foam is hydro-insensitive, so it is a great product to use when water is present. It is typically a permanent solution to raising concrete slabs, but it can be removed and recycled if needed!
Some other benefits of polyurethane foam concrete raising are that it is cost-effective. The process is cheaper than replacing concrete, adding to its environmentally friendly benefits. Old concrete has to be disposed of in landfills. Polyurethane foam concrete lifting eliminates excess waste that will end up in the landfill. Raising concrete with polyurethane foam is also a fast and noninvasive process. The work can be finished in a matter of hours, depending on the size of the job. Since there is no digging or heavy machinery involved, the disruption to services is minimal.
