Lift our sunken concrete for ¼ to ½ of replacement costs.

Sunken concrete can be a major headache. It can create a tripping hazard, drainage issues, future cracks, and just be plain ugly. With the use of polyurethane geotechnical high density foam, TCS can stabilize soil, fill voids, and lift concrete back to it proper height. From a sidewalk or apron, to a commercial building or highway, we can cover all your lifting needs with a variety of products and processes. Save money and time with concrete lifting from Technical Construction Solutions today.

Concrete lifting is an easy 3 step process. First we drill small 5/8 or 3/8 holes in your concrete in strategic locations. We install injection ports into these holes. Next, we injection polyurethane geotechnical lifting foam into the ports at high pressure and temperature. This process is done slowly to safely lift your concrete to the desired height. Last, the ports are removed and the holes are then patched with concrete mix to fill them in leaving a smooth finish.

Deep foam injection is a process of driving rod into the ground 1 to 20 feet deep. From there, single or dual component foams are injected into the ground to stabilize the soils and subgrades. Rods can then be moved further and further up to the surface, continually injection foam. This will remove all of the moisture and glue all the soil together. This process can also be using to lift up structures, roads, seal culvers and more. Using deep foam injection can save time and money over doing a full reconstruction and replacement of subgrade soils and create long lasting and stable repair.

Washout can cause large voids under slabs and structure. Some sink hole areas can be big enough to jeopardize a whole structure. TCS can come fill these voids with low exothermic fill foams. This will flow into all voids and completely fill the area preventing further damage. Like regular lifting foam, this product will not break down and wash away over time like dirt and soil can. Fill foam can also be used to seal off pipes, culverts, mine shafts, and many more structures as well. For any more questions, contact TCS today.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Concrete lifting is typically more cost-effective and less time-consuming than replacing the entire slab. It also minimizes disruption, as the process is quicker and cleaner. Additionally, lifting preserves the existing concrete, reducing waste and environmental impact.

The duration of the concrete lifting process depends on the size and extent of the project. However, most residential projects can be completed in a few hours. The lifted concrete is often ready for use immediately after the process is finished.

Yes, concrete lifting is considered environmentally friendly because it reuses the existing concrete slab, reducing the need for new materials. It also minimizes waste and the environmental impact associated with concrete replacement.

Most concrete slabs, including driveways, sidewalks, patios, pool decks, and garage floors, can be lifted using concrete lifting techniques. However, the suitability of the process depends on the specific conditions and extent of damage to the slab.

The most common materials used in concrete lifting are polyurethane foam and cement-based grout. Polyurethane foam is lightweight, quick-setting, and highly effective for filling voids and lifting slabs. Cement-based grout is a traditional material that provides strong support and stabilization.

The cost of concrete lifting varies depending on factors such as the size of the area, the extent of settling, and the materials used. Generally, concrete lifting is more affordable than replacing the concrete slab. It’s best to get a detailed estimate from a professional service provider.

Signs that your concrete may need lifting include visible sinking or settling, uneven surfaces, cracks, and pooling water on the slab. If you notice any of these issues, it’s advisable to consult a professional to assess the situation and recommend the appropriate solution.

In some cases, concrete lifting may be covered by homeowners’ insurance, especially if the settling or sinking is due to covered perils such as water damage or soil erosion. It’s important to check with your insurance provider to understand your coverage and any applicable conditions.

When properly done, concrete lifting can provide a durable and long-lasting solution. The materials used in the process are designed to withstand the weight of the concrete and resist further settling, ensuring the longevity of the lifted slab.

While there are DIY concrete lifting kits available, the process requires specialized equipment and expertise to ensure proper results. Hiring a professional concrete lifting service is recommended to achieve the best outcome and avoid potential issues.
