Concrete Lifting and Leveling Creates a Safer Driveway in Melbourne, FL

Monday, May 27th, 2019 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

After living in their house for a couple of years, homeowners in Melbourne, FL, started to notice potential safety issues outside their home. Several areas of the driveway had concrete that was cracking and settling.

It is common for concrete to fail by cracking and settling over time, typically due to sinking soil underneath. When there is no support system for the concrete, it, too, will sink. This results in uneven slabs that affect the appearance and safety of the area. Significant gaps between concrete slabs present tripping hazards.

The homeowners wanted to address these issues for good, so they began to research how to best address these problems. During their research, the owners came across Florida Foundation Authority’s website, and they gleaned information about our concrete lifting and leveling service. They were then motivated to contact us to learn even more about how we could help them.

The owners then met with Inspector Alex Graves who evaluated the condition of the concrete. Our inspector presented the owners with the perfect solution, and the owners were eager for a state-of-the-art repair method to be used on their property.

Solution

One of our expert crews, led by Foreman Mike McDonald, used the PolyRenewal System to lift, level and stabilize the problematic concrete.

This involved first drilling very small holes into the sinking concrete. After injection ports were placed in these holes, special equipment was then used to inject high-density polyurethane underneath the slab. The material expands to fill any voids, and this allows for the exact lifting and leveling of the slab.

PolyRenewal is lightweight, but it is extremely durable. It will not wash out from underneath the concrete slab, and its quick cure time allows for normal traffic to resume just 15 minutes after the installation process.

Joint sealant also was used to fill and repair any cracks and joints to further protect the concrete.

The homeowners were pleased this unique repair solution was used to create a safer living environment.
