It is common for concrete to settle over time. This can happen for a number of reasons, but the most typical cause is sinking soil underneath the concrete slabs. It can either wash out or give way underneath the weight of the concrete, resulting in a lack of support for the concrete slabs. This, in turn, results in unsightly tripping hazards.
Concerned with the safety and appearance of their property, the owners hoped to find a permanent solution. During their research, the owners found information about Florida Foundation Authority online, and they wanted to contact us for further assistance. Inspector Alex Graves visited to evaluate the condition of the concrete. Alex then recommended the perfect repair solution.
Foreman Jonathan Ortiz and his crew then used the PolyRenewal system to lift, level and stabilize the concrete. They did this by injecting high-density polyurethane foam under the concrete through very small holes. This material expands, fills any voids, and allows for the precise lifting and leveling of the concrete.
PolyRenewal is lightweight, but very durable. It will not wash out from under the concrete, and its quick cure time of 15 minutes allows normal traffic to resume shortly after installation.
The newly repaired concrete was further protected by joint sealant that was applied to the cracks and joints.
The homeowners now have peace of mind knowing this reliable repair solution has helped create a safer living environment.
