Frequently Asked Questions
What is Polyurethane foam jacking?
Polyurethane is a liquid foam made of environmentally friendly materials that is injected as a liquid underneath the settled concrete then it sets up forming a rigid foam.
Will concrete resettle after polyjacking?
Polyurethane foam jacking is considered a permanent solution for uneven concrete. Polyurethane foam is a high density material in addition to being lightweight which reduces the overburden on the unstable soils under the concrete. Unlike mudjacking, polyjacking lasts much longer, and you don’t have to redo the lifting every few years.
How is foam jacking different from mud jacking?
Poly jacking and mud jacking have distinct differences. Polyurethane foam jacking offers a clean solution as the foam equipment is sealed to the repair area, while mud jacking can be messy due to on-site mixing and slurry transportation. Poly jacking requires smaller ⅜” holes, resulting in less noise, whereas mud jacking typically involves drilling larger 4-inch holes. These factors make poly jacking an efficient alternative for those seeking minimal mess and reduced noise during the repair process.
Does the poly jacking process require trucks driving on my lawn?
Poly jacking offers a convenient solution for repairing settled concrete without any trucks or equipment on your lawn. The repairing truck is parked on the street, and the pumping hose is run directly from the truck to the repair site. This process ensures that your lawn remains untouched, alleviating any concerns about damage or mess after the work is completed.
How long do I need to wait before walking on the lifted concrete?
Polyurethane has a quick cure time which makes it better than mudjacking. Foot traffic is usually allowed during the polyjacking operation. In addition it can be driven on 30 minutes or less after the work is completed.
Does wet weather affect polyurethane foam?
One of the many advantages of the polyurethane foam that it is waterproof. You don’t need to worry about wet days. Also you can use it for fixing the uneven concrete of the wet nature places such as pool decks.
