Concrete Repair and Protection with PolyRenewal in The Villages, FL

Wednesday, July 31st, 2019 by Holly Richards-Purpura

Challenge

Homeowners in The Villages, FL, have lived in their house for six years. During that time, they have seen some exterior problems get worse. Several areas of the back patio had concrete that was cracking and uneven.

Not only did this affect the appearance of their property, but the safety as well. When concrete settles, mainly due to sinking soil underneath, any gaps between the slabs present tripping hazards.

The owners wanted to fix this issue before any serious damage or injury resulted. After hearing great things about Florida Foundation Authority, the owners were eager to contact us for further guidance. One of our inspectors then visited to evaluate the condition of the concrete. Our inspector also pointed out some problematic areas of the exterior drainage system that allowed water to drain close to the house and puddle around the concrete. He then presented the homeowners with the best repair solutions.

Solution

One of our crews then completed two repair projects to enhance the safety of the property.

One of these included using the PolyRenewal system to lift, level and stabilize the problematic concrete.

This involved first drilling very small, minimally invasive holes into the concrete and then placing injection ports in these holes. Special equipment was then used to inject high-density polyurethane underneath the concrete. As the foam material expands to fill any voids, the slabs are able to be precisely lifted, leveled and stabilized. Joint sealant also was used to fill any areas where there were cracks or gaps. This material also helps protect the newly leveled concrete.

PolyRenewal is lightweight, but also very durable. It will not wash out from underneath the concrete, and normal traffic and weight can resume just 15 minutes after installation.

Durable pipes also were connected to the ends of the gutter downspout lines. These lines were placed in the ground and directed to drain to the edge of the property.

The owners now have peace of mind knowing these reliable repairs have helped create a safer living environment.
