Settled Concrete Slabs

Settled concrete repair

Uneven concrete around your home like walkways, patios, driveways and garage floors can present a dangerous tripping hazard and liability exposure for you.  It can also direct water into unintended areas causing pooling water, seepage and in some cases even leading to structural damage to foundations.

Settled concrete slabs can be caused by poor compaction of the subgrade below the concrete, poor backfill around foundations and excavations, erosion caused by poor grading or poorly placed downspouts and sump pump discharges as well as vehicle traffic and even animal damage.


Polyurethane Concrete Raising

Concrete Slab Raising

Polyurethane Concrete Raising is a great way to repair settled concrete sidewalks, patios, pool decks, driveways and garage floors. The process is completed in three easy steps:

  1. Strategically drill 5/8” holes in the concrete slab
  2. Inject Polyurethane Concrete Raising foam under the affected areas to “lift” the slab
  3. Patch the holes with cement

Polyurethane Concrete Raising has many benefits compared to the other two repair methods (replacing the concrete or mudjacking the slab):

  1. Much less costly and disruptive than replacing the concrete
  2. Cures very quickly, the treated areas can be put back into service immediately afterwards
  3. Injection holes in concrete are considerably smaller than those used in traditional mudjacking
  4. Polyurethane will not wash away from under the slab like mudjacking material
  5. Lightweight material does not add burden to already settling soil
  6. Can increase the ability of the concrete slab to hold weight

So when you are ready to repair your settling concrete sidewalks, patios, driveways, pool decks and garage floors, count on Polyurethane Concrete Raising from U.S. Waterproofing to quickly get it done for you.
