Concrete patios, like most slabs, sink due to the conditions of the underlying soil. Soils expand and shrink with changes in moisture, and this can lead to erosion over time and the formation of air pockets. As the soil degrades, it’s not able to hold up the weight of the concrete, causing uneven stress on the patio slab. This can result in sinking, tilting, cracking, and other damage that can put you at risk for tripping, as well as cause improper drainage and water intrusion. If your home’s gutters are clogged or you have poorly positioned downspouts, the water accumulation can cause washout as well.
Our team of Seattle concrete patio leveling experts uses an innovative polyurethane foam leveling method to effortlessly lift and secure your concrete. Poly concrete leveling is quickly becoming a standard practice for concrete repair, and has many advantages over conventional options like mudjacking or total slab replacement. The two-part expanding polyurethane foam works quickly, cures in only a few minutes, is waterproof, and won’t wash away. It is 30x lighter per cubic foot than mortar materials, so it won’t weigh down the soil and cause future problems. The foam is injected through small holes in your concrete patio, to easily lift and level the slab back to a proper position.
Poly concrete leveling offers a cost-effective solution when compared to mudjacking and slab replacement.
Looking for a permanent solution for your home in Seattle? With poly concrete leveling, you will enjoy longer-lasting concrete (up to a lifetime in longevity). Comparatively, mudjacking and slab replacements are more likely to be affected by shifting soils, which can cost you more in the long run to repair.
When we use poly concrete leveling, you can expect very rapid cure times. The polyurethane foam used in this method cures within minutes, so you could be parking your car in your driveway as soon as 15 minutes after lifting.
Yes! The polyurethane foam used in poly concrete leveling is composed of environmentally friendly materials. The polyurethane foam is waterproof and will not degrade.
Because of this, there is no way for the foam to leach dangerous chemicals into the soil around your concrete.
