Repairing and Protecting a Cracking, Uneven Driveway with PolyRenewal in Palm Bay, FL

Wednesday, May 29th, 2019 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

After living in his house for 19 years, a homeowner in Palm Bay, FL, began to notice issues with the concrete driveway. Several areas were cracking and uneven.

It is common for concrete to fail over time, showing these signs through cracking and sinking. This can happen for a number of reasons, but the most common cause is sinking soil underneath the concrete. This lack of support system results in unsafe and unsightly areas of concrete.

This concerned the homeowner, and he wanted to address the problem once and for all. After learning more about Florida Foundation Authority online, the homeowner was eager to contact us to install a permanent repair solution.

The homeowner met with one of our inspectors. Our inspector completed a thorough evaluation of the sinking exterior concrete, and he recommended our state-of-the-art concrete lifting and leveling system.

Solution

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

First, very small, penny-sized holes were drilled into the cracking and sinking slabs, and injection ports are placed in these holes. Special equipment was then used to inject high-density polyurethane underneath the slabs. This material expands to fill the voids, and this allows for the exact lifting and leveling of the slabs.

While PolyRenewal is lightweight, it is extremely durable. It will not wash out, and its quick cure time allows for normal traffic to resume just 15 minutes after installation.

Joint sealant also was applied to the joints and any cracks to further protect the newly repaired concrete.

The homeowner was pleased this unique repair solution was used on his property to create a safer living environment.
