Concrete Leveling & Void Filling
You may be surprised to learn just how much of your home relies on concrete for support. Concrete is used in everything from your driveway, sidewalk, steps and garage, to your patio, basement, and pool deck. Maybe you’ve noticed that huge crack in the garage floor or holes littering the driveway. However, you probably didn’t notice the slight drooping in the patio that’s now a veritable sinkhole.
Damaged concrete isn’t just an eyesore, it’s also dangerous. Over time, your uneven concrete can grow from being an unsightly nuisance to a dangerous tripping hazard for you and your family. Plus, once the concrete has been compromised, there’s no telling when it might take a turn for the worse. Waiting for a disaster is never a good way to save money. Improve the safety of your home and property from the ground up. You count on concrete to do a lot to keep you safe, but are you doing your part?
Concrete Leveling Solutions for Any Environment
No matter what kind of environment you have, there is a concrete leveling solution that can work for you. Polyurethane foam injections will fill in any voids or cracks in your concrete and will also level out your surface. No matter what type of environment you have, there is a concrete leveling solution that can work for you.
If your driveway is starting to show signs of age, it may be time to level it. Concrete leveling can be done by injecting a compound underneath the slab. The compound will raise the slab and fill in any voids, resulting in a level surface. In most cases, concrete leveling can be completed in a single day. And since it does not require the removal of the existing concrete, it is also much less expensive than replacing the entire driveway. If your driveway is starting to show its age, leveling it may be the best way to restore its former glory.
If you have ever tripped on a sidewalk, you understand how dangerous an uneven surface can be. Not only is it a hazard for pedestrians, but it can also damage vehicle tires and cause other problems. Fortunately, concrete leveling is a quick and easy way to correct these problems. By using a special mixture of polyurethane, concrete leveling can quickly fill in any low spots or depressions. In addition, leveling can help to improve drainage and prevent pooling water from damaging the sidewalk. As a result, concrete leveling is an important part of keeping sidewalks safe and level for everyone.
Porch & Steps
Most people think of concrete as a low-maintenance material that doesn’t require much upkeep. However, over time, concrete can settle and become uneven. This can be especially noticeable on porches and steps, where minor imperfections can create a tripping hazard. In addition to safety concerns, uneven concrete can also cause water to pool, which can lead to further damage. For these reasons, it’s important to have any sunken concrete professionally leveled as soon as possible.
If your patio is not level, it can cause all sorts of problems. Water can pool on one side, which can lead to cracking and other damage. In addition, an uneven patio can be uncomfortable to walk on and can present a trip hazard. As a result, it is important to ensure that your patio is level before you use it.
Garage & Parking Slabs
If your garage floor has started to show signs of wear, concrete leveling may be the ideal solution. This process involves injecting polyurethane underneath the slab, which lifts it back into place and fills in any voids. In most cases, the entire process can be completed in just a few hours, and you’ll be able to enjoy a smooth, level garage floor for years to come.
A pool deck is a great addition to any backyard. Not only does it provide a place to relax and enjoy the outdoors, but it also increases the value of your home. However, over time, pool decks can settle and become uneven. This can be a safety hazard and make your deck look unappealing. Concrete leveling can help to fix these issues. By injecting a material into the existing concrete, we can lift and level the deck, giving you a smooth and level surface to enjoy for years to come.
The Raising Solutions Advantage
Concrete raising can cost a fraction of the cost of other methods, frequently saving you over 50% of the cost of replacement!
Fix your concrete with minimal downtime and disruption. In most cases, you’ll be able to walk or even drive on your lifted concrete within 30 minutes!
Ripping out and replacing your concrete can be a messy endeavor, whereas concrete raising requires nearly invisible dime-sized holes.
The polyurethane foam used in our process is strong, resilient, insoluble, and highly resistant to long-term erosion.
Polyurethane foam consists of 39-49% renewable and recycled materials. Plus, it will never leach dangerous chemicals or pollute groundwater.
At Raising Solutions, we use an innovative method that is commonly referred to as polyjacking (but may also be known as polyurethane concrete raising or leveling, poly leveling, or even poly foam). During this process, a small, dime-sized hole is drilled through the concrete slab and a tapered delivery port is installed into the hole. Raising the concrete with polyurethane foam is done with incremental injections. Within seconds, the polyurethane expands, compressing loose soils and raising your concrete, allowing us to monitor the process and preventing over-raising the slab. The polyurethane stabilizes the underlying soil and concrete, so it doesn’t fracture or fail.
Hiring A Professional Concrete Leveling Contractor
Concrete leveling is the process of raising sunken concrete slabs back to their original position. This can be done in order to improve the appearance of a driveway or to correct any functional issues that have arisen due to the settling of the concrete. While there are many do-it-yourself methods for concrete leveling, it is generally best to leave this job to the professionals. A professional concrete company will have the equipment and experience necessary to get the job done quickly and efficiently. In addition, they will be able to provide a warranty on their work, ensuring that your driveway will be back in top condition for years to come.
Our Foundation Stabilization Process
Evaluate & Estimate
If you're concerned about the stability of your foundation, it's important to get a professional evaluation. We will assess the condition of your foundation and recommend the best course of action to take. We provide a free estimate for all of our services, so you can be sure you're getting the best value for your money.
A soil analysis is essential for foundation stabilization. By determining the composition of the soil, we can figure out how deep we need to go in order to stabilize the foundation and level the concrete. The process is relatively simple: we take a sample of the soil and analyze it. This tells us what type of soil we're dealing with and how best to proceed with the stabilization process. In some cases, we may need to excavate and replace the soil; in others, we may be able to use a less invasive technique. In either case, the goal is the same: to provide you with a stable foundation that will last for years to come.
Our field foundation stabilization technicians expertly perform the concrete leveling and deep foamjection process. This process not only restores your structures but actually improves the integrity of your entire structure.
Once your concrete has been properly leveled and stabilized, the next step is to fill in any injection holes with new cement. This is a crucial part of the process, as it helps to ensure that your concrete will be strong and durable. The new cement will bond with the existing concrete, creating a new foundation that is even stronger than before. In addition, filling in the injection holes will help to prevent water from seeping into the concrete and causing damage. After the hole(s) have been filled, the final step is to apply a sealant. This will help to protect your concrete from weathering and wear.
Once your foundation has been stabilized, it is important to make sure that it is of the highest quality. We review each job to verify your satisfaction, and we will answer any questions you may have about the work. Your concrete is now ready for immediate use.
