What is Foamjection?

 

Foamjection is an environmentally friendly process of lifting and levelling sunken concrete.  Polyurethane foam is injected under sunken or uneven concrete.  The process is also referred to as concrete raising, foam jacking, slab jacking, mudjacking and poly level.

 

How does it work?

 

Polyurethane foam is injected under concrete expanding resulting in the concrete being lifted.  The process takes about two hours from start to finish.  Once completed, the concrete can be used immediately. 

In order to inject the foam, 5/8" injection holes are drilled into the sunken concrete areas which are required to be lifted.  Effectively these holes are about the size of a dime.

 

 

The concrete levelling equipment, itself, is contained in a truck that provides for sufficient length of hose to accommodate performing the injection for residential, commercial and industrial customers. Once the prep work is completed, the foam is injected underneath the concrete slab filling voids and lifting the concrete.  Once that is completed, the injection holes are filled with new cement providing you with the ability to use the surface immediately.
