Commercial and Residential Foamjacking
Our team at Concrete Raising of Atlanta specializes in concrete lifting of commercial and residential concrete slabs with foamjacking. This technique uses a high-density expanding polyurethane foam to lift the concrete slab into position and hardens afterward to provide a strong support for the concrete. We have used this system for jobs large and small and can handle just about any concrete slab no matter how uneven it may be.Our team can fix warehouse floors, showroom floors, walkways, patios, driveways, sidewalks, seawalls, pool decks, steps, and any concrete floor. Our team uses only patented and safe technologies guaranteed to keep your concrete slabs level for years.
Foamjacking Vs. Mudjacking
As alternatives to tearing out and replacing sunken or damaged concrete slabs, foamjacking and mudjacking are a great option. Both are significantly cheaper, but each has its own characteristics. Our team at Concrete Raising of Atlanta specializes in the foamjacking method of concrete lifting because the benefits of using this system over mudjacking are much greater. Our team uses a patented polyurethane that is strong enough to lift and stabilize even the largest concrete slabs. We regularly perform lifting on concrete slabs for both commercial and residential properties. Take a look below at our detailed descriptions of each slab lifting process to learn more information about how foamjacking can work for you.
Foamjacking also referred to as polyjacking is a method of concrete lifting that uses a polyurethane foam to lift concrete slabs into place. This method of lifting is the preferred method of concrete repair by the Department of Transportation and requires a certification to install. Our patented system is designed to last a minimum of 10 years, but in most cases will last much longer.
Advantages & Disadvantages:
- Lighter weight material at 4lbs per cubic ft
- Resistant to corrosion and deterioration
- Smaler installation holes and less mess
- More expensive than mudjacking
The traditional mudjacking process has been around since the 1900's and is still one of the most widly empoyed methods of concrete lifting on the market. This is mostly due to the lower cost of materials and service fees. The process has remained largly unchanged since that time. Mudjacking uses a slurry of concrete and mud injected underneath of the slab to lift it to the proper height.
Advantages & Disadvantages:
- Cost less than foamjacking
- Can reach higher strength
- Heavier burden on the soil underneath
- Longer cure time
