When concrete settles, it's a major safety hazard and takes away from the beauty of a property. Settled concrete can be sunk, lopsided and cracked. It's advisable to repair settled or broken concrete as soon as possible. Luckily, concrete leveling costs half as much as a replacement, and Mr. Level has the expertise, equipment, and service you need.
There is a polyurethane foam that is used to fill voids, stabilize, and raise concrete through injection underneath the concrete. A hole is drilled into the concrete slab at 5/8" to reach the subgrade. The subgrade is the material that lies beneath the concrete.
After the hole is drilled, the material needs to be injected. This is done through a delivery port installed by our workers, the injection gun is made to be connected to this port after its installation.
The material that is injected into the slab is a polyurethane foam that expands in a matter of seconds after placement. This allows us to work precisely and incrementally as we wait 10-15 seconds to monitor the raising of the concrete. The careful process prevents over raising the concrete and grants the most precise and level outcome!
Many people have the misconception that broken or settled concrete needs to be replaced when you can usually level it for half the cost! See what causes concrete to settle below…
