Is Polylifting Expensive?
One of the biggest advantages to raising and leveling concrete with polyurethane foam compared to concrete replacement is the cost. While the cost of polylifting projects vary, the service typically costs about 50%-80% less than the cost of replacement. As an example, if it costs $4,000 to replace a sunken concrete driveway, it may cost between $800 and $2,000 to raise and level it by polylifting.
Is Mudjacking a More Cost-Effective Slab Leveling Option Than Polylifting?
Polylifting and mudjacking are similar in that both can raise sunken concrete slabs. Whereas polylifting utilizes a polyurethane foam, mudjacking involves pumping a cement-like grout under the slab to stabilize and level it. Although mudjacking is the traditional slab repair method, polylifting has become the preferred method of ground remediation because of cost efficiency. While it’s true that the grout and polyurethane foam ultimately accomplish the same goal, grout is prone to water erosion and over time can wash away, causing the concrete slab to sink again. On the other hand, the polyurethane foam cures more quickly, and once cured, it is impervious to water erosion. What’s more, polyurethane foam will never lose density or shrink. In short, polylifting makes for a better long-term solution.
