Concrete Repair and Leveling
Dallas is the third largest city in the state of Texas after Houston and San Antonio. It neighbors Ft. Worth, and the two are known as prosperous urban centers. With a commerce based on banking, IT, energy, and healthcare, it's no wonder why so many people are choosing to move to this area of the state.
Homeowners here need to do everything they can to keep up with their properties, and this includes taking care of any concrete problems that may come up. If you have noticed that there are areas of sagging and un-level concrete around your home, you need to get this problem taken care of sooner rather than later. The longer you wait, the more likely it becomes that someone will accidentally trip over the concrete and injure themselves! When this happens, you will be held liable for any damages, and this can result in a huge headache for you. Additionally, if you choose not to take care of the problem, it can take away from your home's value.
While other companies make use of mudjacking or slabjacking when it comes to fixing sinking slabs, we make use of a technique known as polyjacking. The three are very similar, however, they do have some major differences. Polyjacking makes use of an expanding polyurethane foam whereas mud and slabjacking make use of a messy concrete slurry mix.
Also, the repair process for mud and slabjacking involve drilling somewhat large holes in the damaged concrete slab. These holes can be difficult to fill in and patch over, and they may never match with the rest of the concrete surface. With polyjacking, very tiny holes are needed since a foam is all that is being injected. The holes can easily be patched over.
The Polyjacking Process
The process will start with us cleaning off the surface of the damaged slab so that dirt and debris don't get inside during the repair process. Next, we will drill the tiny holes (as mentioned above) in the slab. The polyurethane foaming material is injected into the holes and below the slab. The foam expands and fills up the entire void. The pressure of the foam helps to push the concrete back up to the level where it needs to be. We then fill in the holes and patch them over so that they match with the rest of the surface. The polyurethane foam cures within 15 minutes or so, and afterward, it can be walked or driven over like normal once again.
