When it comes to repairing sunken or uneven concrete, many homeowners are unaware of the best methods available. Traditional methods like mudjacking have been used for years, but they come with their own set of drawbacks. At Concrete Polyfix, we exclusively use polyfoam for concrete leveling, and in this blog, we’ll delve into the science behind why polyfoam is the superior choice.
What is Polyfoam?
Polyfoam is a two-part polyurethane foam that expands upon injection, filling voids beneath the concrete and lifting it to the desired level. The material is lightweight, durable, and water-resistant, making it ideal for concrete leveling.
Quick and Clean
One of the biggest advantages of using polyfoam is the speed and cleanliness of the process. Unlike mudjacking, which can be messy and require larger holes to be drilled into the concrete, polyfoam requires only small holes, resulting in a cleaner and quicker job.
The expansive nature of polyfoam allows for precise leveling. The foam expands uniformly, lifting the concrete slab evenly and eliminating the risk of further cracking or sinking.
Polyfoam is water-resistant, meaning it won’t absorb water and deteriorate over time. This is particularly beneficial in areas prone to water accumulation or soil erosion, as it provides a long-lasting solution.
Traditional methods like mudjacking add significant weight to the soil, which can lead to further sinking. Polyfoam is lightweight, reducing the risk of additional soil compression and subsequent sinking.
The science behind polyfoam makes it the best choice for concrete leveling. Its quick, clean, and precise application, along with its water-resistant and lightweight properties, make it superior to traditional methods like mudjacking.
