Concrete Leveling: What are the Benefits?
Is the concrete under your home, around your pool or along your walkway starting to heave and crumble? Did you know that instead of ripping out the entire slab and starting from scratch, it can be fixed using a process called concrete leveling? At Akton Injection, we specialize in concrete, foundations and French drains, and know first-hand how complex and expensive concrete work can be in Montreal. That’s why we offer concrete leveling. It’s a cost-effective solution that may be right for you.
What’s Concrete Leveling?
Concrete leveling involves lifting and repairing uneven, sunken or cracked sections of concrete by injecting polyurethane foam. Once the foam hardens, the concrete regains its strength and stability. This process prevents you from having to replace an entire slab.
How Does It Work?
Our technicians start by drilling several strategically placed, dime-sized holes into the surface of the concrete so they can inject polyurethane foam under the slab. Once the polyurethane foam is injected, it expands and compresses the loose soil to level out the concrete. The small holes are then patched and smoothed out, leaving the concrete looking brand new.
The Advantages of Concrete Leveling
Concrete leveling is a cost-effective solution that’s between 50 and 75 per cent cheaper than investing in a replacement. Here are a few additional advantages of opting for concrete leveling.
- The process is fast. Most concrete leveling jobs take less than a day to complete.
- Polyurethane cures quickly. You can walk and drive on the concrete surface within a few hours of it being repaired. This makes it a great option for businesses that want to limit downtime.
- Polyurethane is durable. Polyurethane is water repellent and retains its density. It creates an impermeable barrier that’s not affected by freeze and thaw cycles.
- It can be used for a variety of projects. This repair method can be applied to decks, pool houses, sidewalks, driveways, warehouses, office floors, bridges, basements and more.
