Mudjacking is a cost-effective alternative to replacing sunken concrete. Continental Foundation Restoration offers both the traditional mudjacking and the lightweight polyurethane concrete raising method.
Lifting concrete with foam offers the same results of traditional concrete raising, stabilization, and void filling, but with new and improved characteristics. Cost-effective compared to concrete replacement, this high density polyurethane foam has quick cure time, is hydrophobic, moisture barrier, lightweight and provides 5/8” injection holes. With a material for any application, we are leading the concrete raising industry with this revolutionary new polyurethane application.
• Poor Soil Conditions: Clay-rich soils are ‘elastic.’ They expand and contract with moisture content. As soils become saturated with water, the clay expands and loses strength. This condition allows slabs to sink just like standing in wet mud. This can occur from heavy rains, melting snow or plumbing leaks.
• Poor Compaction: Many homes are built on back filled soils. If the soil is not compact- ed correctly, back fill will slowly and unevenly compact, sometimes over a period of a year, allowing slabs to settle.
• Tree Roots: Trees and large shrubs can consume up to 30 gallons of water a day. If located near concrete, the loss of water in the soil will make the soil contract and can cause the slabs to settle.
• Poor Drainage: Improper drainage can cause soil instability by creating areas of saturated soils allowing the slabs to settle. Poor drainage can be typical to the area, or as minor as a misplaced down spout. Many homeowners make the mistake of waiting until the problem worsens or spend 2x as much on replacing the concrete. Until the problem is fixed your home remains at RISK
