This area of your home is likely where you and your family relax on a nice day in lounge chairs or whatever kind of outdoor furniture you may have. If you have slabs of concrete here that are higher up or lower in certain areas, it is a problem that needs to be taken care of before it gets worse. It is often attributed to poor building techniques, improper concrete strengths, or from unfavorable soil conditions beneath the slab.
However, regardless of what has caused the problem in the first place, an uneven porch needs to be taken care of before the damage gets worse - and it will get worse - it's just a matter of time.
Raise and Level A Sinking Porch With Polyjacking
To fix the problem and prevent additional damage, the team members at Don Kennedy and Sons will make use of a process known as polyjacking. It is comparable to "mudjcaking" or "slabjacking," except for the fact that it makes use of a polyurethane foam instead of a messy concrete slurry mix that takes a long time to cure and harden.
The foam is inserted into small drilled holes on the damaged surface, and the expansion of the material puts a lot of pressure on the bottom of the slab. This helps to lift it back into place. The drilled holes are then filled in. The entire process doesn't take very long to complete.
We can also take care of the cracks which may have formed on the surface as a result of the settlement problem.
