Quality Concrete Lifting Services in Erie County, NY
You may want to consider concrete lifting if the concrete structures at your home or business are sinking. There are several reasons why concrete can sink. It can be due to the soil that shrinks and settles or the soil that is washed away over time and leaves the cement above it unsupported.
Whatever the reason for the cracks and voids in your concrete, it is necessary to repair them as soon as possible to avoid further damage and tripping hazards. At WNY Spray Foam, we’ve seen how these small issues can turn into big problems. They can cause uneven driveways and sidewalks. They can also cause failing foundations that lead to jammed windows and doors.
We have several methods for addressing sinking concrete. Our concrete lifting services guarantee to restore your concrete back to solid ground. We can lift and stabilize your concrete effectively.
Frequently Asked Questions
In an effort to provide our customers with some knowledge and understanding of spray foam
insulation, we have compiled a list of some of the most common queries!
Concrete lifting with mud is known as mudjacking or concrete leveling. In this method, sand, cement, and other materials are combined to create a mixture called slurry. This mixture is then pumped into the holes drilled into the concrete to raise and level it.
Mudjacking works best for concrete that’s in good condition but is no longer level. It is the best option for slabs, driveways, walkways, steps, and more.
In contrast, concrete lifting with foam or polyjacking uses a high-density geo-technical expanding foam to raise and stabilize concrete slabs. The material and equipment used in polyjacking are similar to what is used in spray foam insulation. The only difference is the foam used for concrete lifting is a lot stronger.
Polyjacking works best for large, heavy, or sensitive concrete slabs. It is also the best choice for concrete that needs to return the service quickly such as roadways.
After the concrete has been poured and the soil compacts naturally, it will not experience drastic compaction again within the first few years. Polyjacking is less likely to experience additional settings since the material weighs in at about 2 pounds per cubic foot. It is also hydrophobic so it will not break down easily or wash away due to the weather.
The most common reason for concrete to sink or settle is due to moisture. When the soil beneath the concrete gets wet and dries out, it compacts the soil and leaves voids that allow the concrete to settle.
That’s why it is recommended to correct the drainage near the concrete to avoid it from sinking. You can do this by extending your rain gutters away from the concrete and maintaining a positive grade.
