PolyLift is a relatively new technology for concrete leveling but is growing in popularity because it cures quickly and is waterproof. Concrete slabs become uneven when the soil supporting the slab has eroded or compacted, creating a void that causes the slab to tilt and sink. Ground water or weak soil are usually the cause for soil erosion.
Process and Benefits of PolyLift
The process of PolyLift is similar to mudjacking, but instead of a concrete slurry, a polyurethane foam is injected into the void, slowly lifting the slab until it is even again. Where mudjacking can take up to two weeks to cure, PolyLift can be used within 15-20 minutes after application and is waterproof. Concrete slabs can shift and sink with the erosion of the soil with which it is being supported. This shifting and sinking causes the concrete to become uneven. An inspection from one of the CNT Foundations’ experts can let you know if your concrete slab can be leveled with PolyLift.
Correcting Uneven Concrete
Leveling concrete can be a cosmetic and practical improvement to your property. Uneven concrete will create cracks in the slab; it also creates a tripping hazard. Call the professionals with CNT Foundations for effective concrete leveling services that keep your pool decks, walkways, patios and garage floors level and safe.
The purpose of concrete leveling (link to ‘concrete leveling’ page) is to bring the slab back to level, without having to replace the entire slab. The benefit of concrete leveling is that you are working with the existing slab, meaning that you do not end up with two-toned concrete and do not have to pay for an entirely new slab.
