If you've noticed cracks in your steps, sidewalk, driveway, garage floor, you've probably already started looking for ways to fix it. After all, you don't want tripping hazards and drainage problems or leaks in the foundation. Mudjacking is a traditional method of lifting and levelling settled concrete. Sanremo Poly-Foam provides an innovative way to lift and level concrete. Polyurethane foam concrete raising (poly jacking)! This relatively new method is the best alternative to mudjacking. Polyurethane foam concrete levelling takes the concept of mudjacking but improves and modernizes it. Do you want to know why concrete lifting with polyurethane foam is an excellent alternative to mudjacking? Well, we are here to tell you! Read on to learn more!
The concrete mixtures used in mudjacking are very heavy. Many concrete levelling companies use mudjacking mixtures that contain mud and concrete that weigh up to 50 times more than polyurethane foam solutions. Because the mixture contains concrete, mudjacking tends to be only a temporary fix. The same issues that caused the original concrete settlement will eventually cause the newly raised concrete to settle again in the same way. Although polyurethane foam is lightweight, it becomes extremely strong once it sets and does not sink over time. Polyurethane foam jacking is a solid alternative to mudjacking.
We all know that excess water and flooding can have devastating effects. Polyurethane foam is hydrophobic, meaning that it can be used underwater or in soil prone to wet conditions. The polyurethane foam creates a moisture barrier that is resistant to water; this not only levels your concrete but can also help prevent water from leaking into your home or building. Mudjacking can shift, and it doesn't offer any water resistance to protect your concrete slab or structure. Water can seep into the holes made by mudjacking. The concrete and mud mixture used then soaks up the water and causes it to expand, resulting in additional settling and cracking. Polyurethane foam is so water-resistant that it is preferred to repair sea walls.
The best benefit of polyurethane foam is how durable it is. Water isn't the only enemy concrete faces. Extreme temperatures also cause problems for concrete. Concrete can expand when exposed to high temperatures and contract when exposed to low temperatures. Polyurethane foam will hold its shape regardless of the climate. Because it is non-absorbent, polyurethane foam isn't affected by the temperamental weather conditions we can experience in Canada. Sanremo Poly-Foam offers polyurethane concrete levelling services that are the best alternative to mudjacking. Polyurethane foam concrete raising will save you additional headaches and stress during the cold winter months.
Polyurethane foam concrete levelling is an environmentally friendly and cost-effective way to lift the concrete back to its original position. Our polyurethane foam is made of up to 49% recycled materials. Polyurethane foam doesn't contain harmful materials or toxic chemicals that seep into soil or groundwater. It is typically a permanent solution to raising concrete slabs, but it can be removed and recycled if necessary. Mudjacking is also environmentally friendly, but polyurethane foam will last longer, so you don't have to worry about concrete settling in the future.
