What Is Concrete Leveling/Lifting?

Concrete lifting is the process of injecting expansive foam underneath a settling slab of concrete. The foam expands in the areas of settlement, pushing the concrete back to its original position and leveling the concrete. The foam then hardens to lock the slab in position and stabilize the soil below.

Concrete lifting uses lightweight, durable, expansive foam that restores the concrete surface with little disruption. It’s fast acting, long lasting, environmentally safe, affordable and can support the weight of concrete. Contractors are able to adjust the amount of foam inserted and the level the concrete is raised.

How Does It Work?

The concrete can be used immediately after injecting the expansive foam. Most concrete lifting jobs take less than a day to complete. Some jobs, depending on how much lift is needed, may take a few hours.
