What is all the hoopla about Polyurethane?

level right concrete liftingHow Do We Lift Concrete Using Polyurethane Foam?

Level Rite Concrete Lifting process is similar to mudjacking, but is an evolved application that allows us to provide our clients with a clean, quick, long-lasting solution. Our process effectively stabilizes soils, fills all voids and lifts concrete using high-density polyurethane foam. The following are the steps for Level Rite Concrete Lifting process:

  1. Once the area has been estimated and the scope of the job identified, our technician can safely and confidently drill a series of access points in the affected area. These access points are small, 5/8 inch drill holes that allows the polyurethane foam to be injected under the concrete.
  2. Specially designed ports are securely attached to the access points. Enclosed inside a mobile unit is one of our pressurized systems designed for the injection of polyurethane foam. Attached to the unit is a heated hose that securely attaches to the small access ports.
  3. The polyurethane foam is injected through the ports crawling deep into loose soil base. Moving laterally underneath the slab. The expanding foam stabilizes loose soils and fills all subsurface voids. Crews carefully monitor the process to insure a safe and effective lift.
  4. Once the sunken concrete has been leveled and stabilized the access points are removed and the holes are patched with a concrete mix and area is ready for use.

Upon job completion you receive a 1 year warranty against settling so you can hire us with confidence.

How To Maintain Your Concrete

working in your neighborhoodClean And Apply Sealer

Cleaning your concrete driveway on occasion and keeping it sealed are the best measures you can take to keep it looking its best. How often you clean and reseal will depend on the weather conditions the concrete is exposed to and the amount of vehicle traffic it receives. Generally, you should reseal a concrete driveway every two years or so, or when the finish begins to show wear.

Remove Stains Immediately

While a sealer will help to protect concrete from stain absorption, it’s still a good idea to remove oil, gasoline, grease and other spills as soon as possible. If the concrete does discolor, pressure washing and certain cleaning chemicals will remove most stains.
