Concrete Raising and Leveling in Fort Walton Beach, Florida
Sinking, settling, and uneven slabs are a problem that can be seen on old and new homes alike. It is typically caused from poor soil conditions, or it could be a result of improper building or pouring techniques being used during the time of construction. If you're in need of concrete leveling in Fort Walton Beach, contact Don Kennedy and Sons! To take care of the problem, Don Kennedy and Sons can make use of a technique known as polyjacking (also known as foam jacking).
The Solution To Sinking Concrete Slabs - Polyjacking
Polyjacking begins with us thoroughly cleaning off the surface of the sinking or damaged slab. Next, we will drill tiny holes into the concrete. A unique polyurethane foaming material from SafeBasements™ will be injected into the holes and will fill up the void underneath the slab.
The force of the foam will be able to push the surface back up to the level where it needs to be. Our team will fill in the holes and patch them over so that they match with the rest of the surface. On average, the foam will cure within about 15 minutes, and afterward the surface can be used normally once again.
Polyjacking can solve all sinking concrete issues including:
- Concrete steps
- Concrete patios
- Garage floors
- Parking lots
- Pool decks
- Basement floors
- Asphalt roads
Polyjacking Is More Efficient Than Mudjacking
Mudjacking is the oldest and most commonly known process for raising concrete. Polyjacking on the other hand, is a recent development made to be more efficient in restoring sinking concrete slabs. Polyjacking is a reliable alternative to mudjacking. There are several advantages to lifting and leveling concrete with polyurethane foam vs. mudjacking.
- Polyurethane concrete raising lasts much longer than mudjacking slurry mix because the material never loses its density like mudjacking.
- The polyurethane material is lightweight and more than capable of filling empty voids in the soil than mudjacking.
- Because the material is so lightweight, fewer and smaller injection holes are required, making repairs faster than mudjacking.
