Your house will not stay new forever and will start set­tle and soil erodes. This isn’t something to be shocked about because it is a nor­mal part of a home’s aging process. While it can be normal it can still wreak hav­oc on your con­crete, caus­ing it to sink. Whether it’s your patio, front porch­, dri­ve­way, side­walk, steps, or pool deck, hav­ing uneven con­crete can lead to dan­ger­ous issues.

In the past, replac­ing the con­crete and mud­jack­ing were your only options, but now there is another option – you can raise it with polyurethane. This technique offers a cost-effi­cient way to lev­el out your con­crete quickly.


We use polyurethane foam to raise uneven con­crete sur­faces and sta­bi­lize the soil. It’s much faster than replac­ing and you can typ­i­cal­ly resume using the con­crete areas around your home in a mat­ter of minutes!


Mud­jack­ing is anoth­er form of con­crete rais­ing that uses cement and sand. It is still a viable way to repair con­crete, but polyurethane foam has ben­e­fits that can­not be denied.

The ben­e­fits of foam

  • Few­er holes to drill saves a lot of time
  • Small­er​“pen­ny-sized” holes reduce patchwork
  • It’s only 4 lbs. per cubic yard opposed to the 120 lbs. of mudjacking
  • Imme­di­ate turn­around: Walk or dri­ve on it 15 min­utes after installation
  • Cost effec­tive: Min­i­mal labor and com­plete in one day
  • No need for reconstruction
  • Reduces trip haz­ards and restores prop­er­ty value

Don’t let it hap­pen again

So after you raise your con­crete, how do you keep it from sink­ing again? Using a rep­utable com­pa­ny like Fam­i­ly Water­proof­ing is the best way to ensure the job is done right the first time and will help reduce the like­li­hood that you’ll have to do it again. And as a home­own­er, you can lessen the chances for sink­ing con­crete by mak­ing sure down­spouts are direct­ing water away from your con­crete, thus reduc­ing soil ero­sion around these surfaces.
