Polylifting: A Fast Way to Level Sunken Concrete
Historically, a process known as mudjacking has been the standard method for lifting sunken concrete slabs. It entails drilling holes in the concrete and pumping a cement-like grout under the sunken slab to raise and level it. In recent years, however, another process called polylifting has emerged as the preferred concrete-lifting method. Not only is polylifting cleaner and less invasive, but it’s also a lot faster than mudjacking. Ultimately, polylifting yields superior results.
Polylifting Is a Lasting Ground Remediation Solution
Like mudjacking, polylifting injects a substance underground to lift concrete, but polylifting uses a polyurethane foam. The holes needed for injecting the foam are smaller than the holes needed for traditional mudjacking, which is why polylifting is less invasive. Also, whereas the grout used in mudjacking takes a full day to cure, polyurethane foam cures within 15 minutes, reducing the wait time before walking or driving on the lifted surface. Once the foam has hardened, it becomes water-resistant, so it won’t erode like grout often does.
