What Is Polyurethane Concrete Lifting?
Polyurethane concrete lifting, also known as polylifting or poly jacking, is a cost-effective alternative to replacing concrete. This method of raising sunken concrete achieves the same results as traditional mudjacking, but with a lightweight polyurethane foam that requires smaller and fewer injection holes. About 15 minutes after being injected, the foam cures, then expands before hardening completely, effectively lifting the unlevel concrete.
Because it’s relatively affordable and can be performed faster than mudjacking and with less mess, poly lifting has become a popular method for leveling uneven sidewalks, driveways, patios, and pool decks.
How Effective Is Polylifting?
The polyurethane foam used in polylifting is incredibly strong. For instance, one square foot of cured foam can support a load of more than 10,000 pounds. What’s more, this foam will never lose density or shrink. It’s also lighter than the grout used in mudjacking, so it puts less stress on the unstable soil under the concrete—soil instability being the reason that concrete sinks. Additionally, the foam is impervious to water infiltration and insect infestation, and won’t react with other chemicals. These benefits all mean that, in most cases, polylifting can serve as a lasting concrete leveling solution.
