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.
