Uneven or cracked concrete represents a huge flaw in your home. Not only can it make your home appear unsightly and uncared for, it can actually constitute a safety hazard. Uneven concrete can be dangerous to walk on, and can lead to injury for you, your family, or guests to your home.

If you have cracked concrete—be it in your driveway, your garage, outdoor steps, patios, or elsewhere—you may have considered trying to fix the problem. But repaving can be intimidating, in large part because of the cost associated with it.

Fortunately, you have another option: foam jacking.

How Does Foam Jacking Work?

Foam slab jacking is an alternative to repaving that allows you to correct the flaws in cracked or settled concrete. The process begins with holes that are strategically drilled into the existing concrete, targeting gaps beneath the uneven areas. The holes are then filled with two polyurethane liquid components. When these substances meet beneath the surface of the concrete, they react to each other and expand, causing the sunken areas of concrete to lift. Just like that, your concrete has been restored to its proper position.

Of course, it takes a practiced hand to restore the concrete to precisely the position you want—but professionals like the team at CreteJack have the skill and experience required to do just that.

Why Choose Foam Jacking?

You have numerous options when it comes to the repair of your concrete features, and you’ve probably put a lot of thought into what process you’re going to go with. We can’t blame you. It’s a serious decision. In deciding whether foam jacking is right for you, we suggest you consider the following:

  • It’s Faster. Foam jacking is a quick procedure. Each adjustment takes only minutes. Compare to mixing and pouring a whole new batch of concrete, and you’ll agree that it’s a lot less trouble.
  • It’s Cheaper. As touched upon earlier, tearing up and replacing your existing concrete can be a pricey endeavor. Foam jacking, on the other hand, is a low cost alternative.
  • You’ll Have Your Property Back Right Away. A new batch of concrete isn’t going to be ready for you to park, drive, or even step on it for a few days. A driveway that’s just been foam jacked? No problem. Step away.

Foam jacking is a process that’s been in use for years, and it’s only gotten more refined. You may find that this is the perfect solution for your concrete repair needs. For questions or to schedule an appointment, contact us today.
