The Cause of Pool Deck Cracking and Settling Fix a pool deck cracked and settling with polyjacking.

One of the most significant factors that can affect your pool deck, especially this time of year is freeze and thaw cycles. As the water molecules freeze and thaw, they expand and contract and can lead to cracking concrete. In addition, your pool deck could also be affected by:

  • Shifting and settling soil under the slab.
  • Concrete that was not mixed properly.
  • Age of the concrete. 

Although concrete is a strong substance, it is prone to cracking and settling. This created tripping hazards around your pool that can be dangerous for your family and friends, as well as affecting your home’s value. So what can be done to repair a cracked or settling pool deck? 

Airlift Uses Polyjacking for Pool Deck Repair 

Polyjacking or Polyurethane Concrete Leveling, is a highly effective and efficient way to repair your cracking or settling pool deck. We will drill strategically placed holes around your deck, to which injection ports will be placed. Using these injection ports, polyurethane foam will be injected under the concrete slab, filling gaps and cracks, and then raising the concrete back into place. The polyurethane foam can also be used to fill cracks. The foam takes very little time to cure, so therefore your pool deck will be back in use very shortly after the process is complete. Once all the foam is injected, the ports are removed and the holes filled, leaving your pool deck level and safe for years to come. Polyjacking benefits include:
