Do you have a front porch, driveway, or patio slab that is uneven due to settling and needs fixing? If your home has sunken or settled slabs of concrete, it’s time to raise them, not replace them. While you might have assumed replacement was the only way to fix the problem, we’re here to tell you that Polyurethane concrete raising in Illinois is the cost-effective alternative.
Fixing uneven concrete is more than just improving the aesthetic of your home; it’s also a safety measure. Uneven concrete is a liability hazard and can result in preventable injuries. Plus, if you’re selling your home, first impressions go a long way in making the sale. A slouching or slanting sidewalk or driveway can really turn off a potential buyer.
Replacing a concrete slab will always be more expensive and time consuming than raising and repairing it. Concrete lifting is the preferred method of repairing any damaged concrete surface, including driveways, steps, patios, sidewalks and garage floors.
The primary method used to raise settled concrete is Polyurethane foam concrete. This method injects a two-part mixture that reacts and expands into a lightweight material. The expanding element can then fill voids, support, and raise the concrete slab. This is a quick and easy job in comparison to replacement, meaning it won’t displace you from your home or interrupt your daily life.
