Effective Concrete Leveling Methods for Homeowners
When it comes to home improvement projects, your budget is often a primary consideration in your choices of products and services. For homeowners seeking a cost-effective concrete leveling method, whether for a cracked driveway, patio, or pool deck, the conventional choice is mudjacking. This sometimes-messy process is not as effective as an emerging leveling method known as polyurethane concrete lifting or polylifting.
Why Polylifting Is Superior to Mudjacking
Polylifting and mudjacking are similar in that both can raise sunken concrete slabs. Whereas mudjacking involves pumping a cement slurry under the slab to stabilize and level it, polylifting utilizes a polyurethane foam. This lightweight foam requires fewer injection holes, allowing for a much cleaner process. It’s also more efficient since the foam cures and hardens just 15 minutes after being injected. What’s more, polyurethane foam:
- Can support a load of more than 10,000 pounds
- Will never lose density or shrink
- Is impervious to water infiltration and insect infestation
- Is environmentally friendly, as no harmful chemicals are released
- Can serve as a lasting concrete leveling solution
