Poly Lift Systems for Residential Properties in Atlanta, GA & Surrounding Areas

Poly lifting is an advanced technique that Engineered Solutions of Georgia provides to level floors or raise sunken concrete slabs. Mudjacking, also known as slabjacking, has long been the traditional method for this type of work. It involves drilling holes in the floor and pumping cement-like grout underneath the sunken slab to lift it to its original level. But this method has serious drawbacks. First, the grout used can erode over time, causing the concrete to sink again. Additionally, mudjacking requires large drill holes, and the grout takes a long time to cure. Fortunately, our innovative poly lift system is a far more efficient and cost-effective solution for property owners in the Atlanta, Georgia, area.

A Closer Look at ESOG’s Process for Poly Lifting Services

Here is our Poly Lift 7 step process:

  1. Assessment– determine the cause, test soil strength, photograph site, explain the scope of work
  2. Site Preparation– mobilize equipment, protect surfaces, drill 3/8” holes
  3. Strengthen Soil– Inject Precision Lift foam to fill voids, stabilize soil and stop erosion
  4. Lift Slab Precisely– Inject Precision Lift foam in short, even bursts to achieve a precise, desired lift within 1/10” accuracy
  5. Validate Difference– confirm slab is lifted and fully supported for a long-term solution
  6. Site Rejuvenation– remove equipment and protection materials, clean and photograph site for client review and permanent file
  7. Client Review– review completed project, the material used, and confirm customer satisfaction

What Causes Concrete Slabs to Settle?

Fundamental to healthy concrete is a solid substrate – well-compacted soils provide a foundation upon which concrete structures perform. Over time, forces of nature take their toll. Decomposing soils, erosion, and groundwater migration break down this foundation. This is the root cause for concrete slabs to sink or settle.

To cure the problem, you need to eliminate the Cause. Injecting polyurethane resins into loosely consolidated soils, voids and water pathways will strengthen the earthen substrate and provide watertight encapsulation. With the soils consolidated and stabilized, concrete slabs will provide service for decades. At ESOG, we use Poly Lift, which targets the causes of settling and creates long-term advantages:

  • Erosion Control
  • Soil Stabilization
  • High-Strength Void Fill
  • Precise Slab Lifting

Why Poly Lift?

Poly Lift System targets the cause so the cure is long-lasting and at a fraction of the cost of slab replacement. At a minimum, concrete settlement is a nuisance and an eyesore. Uneven slabs are trip hazards and a threat to health and safety. In many cases, this solution is also the fastest and most affordable.

The Poly Lift System is equal parts art and science. The high-strength polymer is scientifically formulated to strengthen soil conditions and hydraulically lift concrete slabs. One square foot of Poly Lift foam will support a load of more than 10,000 lbs. The art of the injection grants precise lifting accuracy and restores safety and beauty to your concrete structure.

ESOG’s Poly Lift System vs. Other Options

When you have failing slabs, you generally have three options:

  • Replace — several day process: tear out, haul away, form, pour, finish, repair landscape
  • Mudjack — heavy equipment needed, larger drill holes, cement-based material
  • Poly Lift — light equipment and material, small drill holes, 15-minute cure time, little mess, 5 year warranty

Our Poly Lift option is both quicker & cheaper than the other options, plus we have a 5-year warranty. Contact Engineered Solutions today to find out more about our Poly Lift system.

“We had an excellent experience with ESOG, which built new basement retaining walls and waterproofed our basement. After spending a lot of time researching solutions and interviewing several companies, I went with ESOG because the detailed construction plan was vetted by a certified in-house engineer complete with the all-important PE stamp AND the price was competitive. All of the staff, from the salesman to the engineer to the work crews, were courteous and professional and delivered what they promised.”
