Alternatives to Concrete Replacement

Cracking or sinking concrete is not a normal occurrence. In Southern California concrete issues are caused by changes in seismic activity, climate changes, such as droughts or flooding, swelling or shrinking soils, expanding tree roots, and improperly laid concrete.

When you see this occurring around your home or business, you may think the only way to fix the problem is to replace the concrete or just fill the crack. While these methods might temporarily fix the eye sore that is the crack, or the sinking driveway, it won’t address the underlying problem causing the concrete to move. Eventually, the cracks will reoccur and the sinking concrete slab will be become a bigger problem, which may require complete concrete replacement.

Luckily, there are alternatives to concrete replacement, such as mudjacking and polyurethane foam concrete leveling. Both provide easy and economical solutions for repairing your cracked and sinking concrete.

Polyurethane Foam Concrete Lifting

A highly effective alternative to concrete replacement is polyurethane foam concrete lifting. This three-step process involves drilling into the cracked concrete, pumping polyurethane foam into the cracked area to fill the vacant space, and then patching the concrete.

Not only is polyurethane foam concrete lifting the fastest way to level concrete, but also it’s the most economical and Eco-friendly. Ideal for sidewalks, foundations, basements, roadways, parking lots, and much more, polyurethane foam concrete lifting also helps remove trip hazards and restores the value of your property.

Mudjacking

Mudjacking, a form concrete leveling, works by pumping a mixture of cement and water underneath sunken concrete slabs until the slab is once again level. Mudjacking is ideal for larger jobs, such as hillside erosion, large back-fills, and commercial applications. This economical and time saving concrete replacement alternative helps to restore your property value, as well as eliminate trip hazards, which can result in costly legal claims.
