Stabilizing Soil Helps Solve Concrete Problems

The main cause of concrete problems usually doesn’t have anything to do with the concrete itself, but rather, the underlying soil. Weak soil causes concrete slabs, such as driveways, sidewalks, and patios, to sink, settle, and even buckle. This can also happen with poured slab foundations. If you have a problem with your concrete, stabilizing soil can help solve your concrete problems.

What Causes Concrete to Sink?

Weak soil causes concrete to sink. Eventually, if this problem isn’t addressed, the concrete will likely crack, and the problem can worsen. Soil can weaken over time due to natural causes. Erosion, excess moisture levels, lack of moisture, and soil decomposition are some examples of unstable soil. 

Stabilizing Soil Helps Solve Concrete Problems

We use state-of-the-art products and systems developed by the industry’s leader in foundation repair. Deep polyurethane foam injection is a permanent solution for stabilizing weak soil. Installation is quick and affordable. Polyurethane decreases the permeability of the soil while simultaneously increasing the soil’s load-bearing capacity. Once this process is performed, it will never have to be done again.

Stabilizing soil and concrete using polyjacking

Ready to Solve Your Concrete Problems?

Airlift Concrete Experts uses polyurethane foam in a method called Polyjacking. Polyjacking is a concrete repair method that uses polyurethane foam to raise, level, and permanently stabilize concrete surfaces. Small holes are drilled into the affected area, and a polyurethane foam material is injected into the hole. The polyurethane foam fills in the gaps and voids beneath the concrete then lifts the concrete surface upward. Once your concrete is raised back to its original level, the hole will be closed and the site cleaned. This is a permanent long-lasting solution that will give you peace of mind for the future.
