POLYURETHANE FOAM VS MUDJACKING
There are a few slabjack methods to choose for completing a concrete raising project. Mudjacking is the oldest and most commonly known process for lifting and leveling concrete. Raising concrete with polyurethane foam injections, also known as foam jacking or poly jacking, is a reliable alternative to mudjacking. Level Rite Concrete uses polyurethane foam to raise uneven concrete. There are several advantages to lifting and leveling concrete with polyurethane foam vs. mudjacking.
With polyurethane foam, we are able to use smaller drill holes than what is required with traditional slabjacking methods. Level Rite Concrete uses small, 5/8″ (the size of a dime $.10 piece) drill holes to complete our concrete raising projects. (more…)
Clean & Seal 10% Off
Your store front, walkway, parking lots, patio, and driveways are some of the first areas your customers, employees, family and neighbors see. Those concrete areas also receive the most traffic, which creates a buildup of dirt, grime, gum and other stains. A dirty retail front can not only diminish a property’s appearance, but also cut down on your sales. Concrete cleaning services may be the answer.
Sealing your concrete is not a necessity but is recommended. Most concrete on new homes are not sealed by the contractor due to added cost. Using the proper sealer has long and short term benefits. Short term, if you use a topical sealer, you will have a nice sheen that will definitely add curb appeal. Long term, a sealer can prevent or minimize cracks. One reason for concrete cracking is freeze thaw weathering. This is when temperatures fluctuate from below freezing to above freezing. This allows water to seep into any surface when temps are above freezing, then when it drops below 32 degrees this water freezes and expands. The force of the expansion creates cracking. When temperatures stay close to the freezing mark the water does not have a chance to evaporate and continues to exacerbate the situation. (more…)
