What causes settling concrete slabs? Sinking concrete is common in Virginia, often caused by shifting or weak clay soils. When the soil under the concrete slab become weak, it is unable to support the weight of the concrete and the slab sinks. Weak areas of the slab may crack, causing uneven areas in the concrete.
Another cause of settling concrete is the washout of soils. In Virginia, the weather is constantly changing from periods of dry weather to heavy rainfalls. These fluctuations wash out and erode the soil, providing little support for concrete slabs. Voids form underneath the slab, creating cracks on the surface. At Poly Concrete Jacking, we provide a simple solution - concrete leveling.
In a commercial environment, cracked or sunken concrete can injure employees or customers, damage vehicles and equipment, and give a bad impression of your business.
Our concrete repair specialists use polyurethane injections to repair sinking, uneven, settling, and cracking concrete slabs.
Poly concrete jacking is used to repair the following:
Poly-jacking requires no heavy machinery, uses small drill holes, and is a long-term fix. Polyurethane foam will not shrink with weather and cures in minutes.
At Poly Concrete Jacking we use poly-jacking rather than the older traditional methods because poly-jacking is faster, more accurate, more cost-effective, and longer lasting. The process uses high-density polyurethane foam, which is injected underneath the slab to fill and lift it.
The foam fills in voids and cracks underneath the slab, sealing it from water in the ground below. The slab is lifted to within 1/10th of an inch of the desired height and the foam won't settle or wash away over time. The foam cures quickly, allowing you to use the slab about 15 minutes after the procedure is completed.
We offer poly concrete lifting because its benefits far exceed other methods of concrete repair. If you need help determining the best concrete method in Virginia, contact our professionals right away..
