How much does concrete raising cost?
- Typically, the cost of raising concrete is roughly half the cost of replacing the same section of concrete
- However, every job is unique and this is why we offer Free Estimates.
How Does the Process Work?
- DRILL: 5/8 inch sized holes are drilled in the affected area
- PUMP: a polyurethane mixture is injected through the holes
- PATCH: the holes are filled with cement and finished to match the existing concrete
What Kind of Material Do You Use?
- The concrete raising material - Polyurethane foam - is pumped as a liquid through the drilled holes and sets-up as a rigid foam.
- This foam never shrinks or looses density
Will Your Trucks Disturb My Landscaping?
- A flexible hose is run straight from the van directly to the repair site without driving a single piece of equipment on your lawn.
Is There Maintenance Needed?
- After we have completed raising the cement, there may be some caulking needed at the seams of the repaired sections of cement.
- Additionally, you may need to backfill against any exposed areas to contain the material and mitigate future sinking.
- Mitigating future and further erosion of soil beneath your concrete is a must - ensure downspouts are correctly installed
What Is The Benefit of Polyurethane Over Mudjacking?
- The Polyurethane foam is much lighter than the alternative of traditional mudjacking material - it will not further burden already weakened soil.
- Polyurethane requires less holes and smaller holes.
Will The Holes Be An Obvious Eyesore?
- The only visible evidence that your concrete has been repaired will be the 5/8 inch holes - a hole smaller than a dime.
- We will do our best to match the color and texture of the patch to your existing concrete.
How Long Before I Can Use My Concrete?
- The beauty of using Polyurethane is that it sets up in minutes. It is fully cured and ready to use in 15 minutes.
- By the time we are are driving away, you can use your concrete.
How Long Does The Concrete Repair Process Take?
- The scope of the project will determine the amount of time. The time estimate will be included in your Free Estimate.
- For Residential work, most projects can be completed in less than a day (sometimes within a few hours).
How Long Does It Last?
- The Polyurethane cures as a solid structure, and is impervious to water, chemicals, insects, rodents or erosion.
- As long as the substrate continues to perform, the polyurethane will last forever.
Can My Concrete Move After the Repair?
- In short, Yes.
- Depending on the time of year, the surrounding soil can expand or contract depending on moisture levels in the soil.
- Failure to take preventative measures in mitigating further soil degradation will also contribute to continued shifting.
