Benefits of Concrete Leveling

May 8, 2024 | concrete leveling

Concrete leveling offers several benefits, making it the preferred choice for repairing uneven or sunken concrete surfaces. Firstly, it eliminates trip hazards caused by uneven concrete reducing the risk of accidents or injuries. Additionally, concrete leveling adds to the aesthetics of your property, improving curb appeal and increasing property value. Concrete leveling is also a more cost effective solution compared to replacing the old concrete slab, saving you time and money. Furthermore, by preventing water pooling and directing drainage away from structures, it helps to preserve the strength of buildings and sidewalks. All in all, repairing uneven concrete is a practical and efficient method for restoring level surfaces for property owners.

What Concrete Areas Can Be Lifted?

There are many areas that can benefit from polyurethane concrete leveling. Some of those areas include sidewalks, driveways, patios, stairs, garage floors, pool decks and other outdoor surfaces. For these concrete areas, it’s important to pay attention to small cracks as oftentimes, it’s a signal that something larger is going on. Conditions such as erosion, improper drainage, poor construction or natural ground settlement can cause uneven surfaces. Tree lined sidewalks are pretty to look at, but tree roots can wreak havoc on sidewalks and driveways causing them to “lift up” creating trip hazards. If you’ve ever noticed your garage floor cracking or your front porch is pulling away from your home, this could be from settling or a larger foundation issue. Patios and pool decks tend to have uneven concrete and cracks due to water pooling and poor drainage. Polyurethane spray foam is the ideal and durable solution for correcting uneven concrete surfaces making it the go to solution for many home and business owners.

How to Raise Your Concrete with Polyurethane

At Enviroshield Spray Foam, we use cutting edge technology to repair and stabilize uneven concrete. We use a low-impact method known as slab jacking to bring your concrete back to its original position. Using an eco-friendly foam, we achieve a long-lasting solution for leveling concrete. Our team drills small holes into the slab and injects the foam, which expands and pushes the slab back into place. After the slab is level and the foam has set, we patch up the injection holes, restoring your concrete to its initial state. This whole process takes under an hour and doesn’t need heavy machinery or demolition.

Cost of Polyurethane Concrete Lifting vs. Concrete Replacement

Polyurethane concrete leveling is significantly more cost-effective than replacing entire concrete slabs for several reasons. Firstly, the materials used in polyurethane leveling are less expensive compared to the cost of new concrete. Additionally, the process itself is quicker and requires less labor, reducing labor costs. Moreover, polyurethane leveling eliminates the need for demolishing and removing the old concrete slab, saving on disposal fees and labor-intensive work. Since the process is minimally invasive, it also reduces the need for repairs to surrounding areas or structures that might be disturbed during traditional concrete replacement. Overall, polyurethane concrete leveling is a cost-efficient alternative that delivers excellent results without the hefty price tag of a full slab replacement.

Why Choose Polyurethane Concrete Lifting

When it comes to repairing uneven concrete surfaces, there are several reasons why polyurethane spray concrete leveling is the leading choice. First, it’s lightweight foam minimizes the weight on the soil, therefore reducing further settlement. Secondly, polyurethane foam is known for its precision and accuracy ensuring control over the exact placement of the material. Lastly, with its fast cure time and durability, it is the ideal solution for permanent concrete leveling.
