Fast, Cost-Effective Concrete Repair Aand Soil Stabilization
All sorts of concrete settles, residentially and commercially. What you'll see on your residential home, you could see different levels of your concrete settlement throughout your sidewalk and your driveway, causing uneven and trip hazards. On commercial concrete, what you'll see is on roadways like on a bridge. The bridge is a very sturdy structure that will not settle. The highway slabs themselves are not on a underlying support system. So, they will have the potential settlement which can cause the unevenness in the road. And the big bumps you feel before you hit the bridges.
Regardless of why the concrete sinks, there are services that can resolve the problem without replacing the entire concrete area of concern onto the same problem soil. What we use a Thrasher to fix settled concrete is a two-part polyurethane foam that we come in and inject underneath the slab. We can use that to lift and level the slabs and fill any additional voids that are underneath the slab. Once the slabs have been lifted level, we can also come in and provide a silicone polyurethane sealant that will keep water from going through any joints and causing future erosion or a possible heave situations. Thrasher offers a proven solution to soil stabilization and leveling for uneven concrete slabs, such as sidewalks, driveways, roadways and warehouse floors.
Thrasher offers a proven solution to stabilize and level uneven concrete slabs, such as sidewalks, driveways, roadways and warehouse floors. With multiple formulas available, PolyLevel® can fit the needs of your commercial, industrial or municipal job, large or small.
Supportworks' PolyLevel System is designed to work under the most extreme conditions. PolyLevel uses a two-part urethane polymer that expands into high-density foam to fill voids, lift and stabilize concrete and solve a wide range of geotechnical and structural applications.
PolyLevel® Works for a Wide Range of Applications:
• Leveling uneven sidewalks and driveways
• Repairing industrial building and warehouse floors
• Leveling uneven roads and bridge approaches
• Airport runway and railroad repairs
• Void filling and erosion control
• Pre-construction soil stabilization
We can select the right PolyLevel formula for your specific application, whether it's concrete leveling, void filling, soil stabilization or joint stabilization. The PolyLevel process and steps for installing PolyLevel are the same for both commercial and residential applications.
Advantages of PolyLevel® for Commercial Use
Some contractors still use the old-school repair for settled concrete. They use heavy equipment to demolish the cracked, settled sections of concrete. With concrete replacement you often get a damaged areas, such as yards, and that's off limits until the new concrete hardens and cures. More importantly, the new concrete is going onto the same problem soil which caused the issue in the first place. Another method is mud jacking but leaves the concrete with noticeable injection holes that are 1”-2” in diameter. The material used in mud jacking is not waterproofed which could wash out if not properly sealed, but the material is extremely heavy. Knowing the weight of the original concrete pool deck, over a poor soil base, is usually what cause settlement in the first place and by adding additional weight you’re asking for additional settling to occur.
PolyLevel is a state-of-the-art alternative to mudjacking, re-leveling grout or concrete replacement. The polyurethane foam system offers numerous features and benefits:
Lightweight - Our polyurethane foam weighs approximately 4-6 pounds per cubic foot when installed, in comparison to traditional mortar-based material which weighs 120 pounds per cubic foot.
High capacity - Lifting action is a result of the expansion of the polymer, allowing for lifting of a much higher load than traditional mudjacking, which relies on hydraulic pressure being contained under a slab.
Accurate lift - Calculated reaction time of the expanding polyurethane foam allows for targeted, precise lifting of the slab.
Waterproof - Polyurethane formula is fully waterproof, so it won't wash out, won't be impacted by freeze/thaw cycles and can be used to under-seal slabs and stop a variety of infrastructure leaks.
Non-invasive - PolyLevel equipment can be used in extremely limited access areas and won't disturb lawn or landscape.
Quick cure time - Within just 15 minutes after injection, the concrete slab is ready for heavy loading; compared to conventional mudjacking which takes several days to cure.
Environmentally-friendly - With PolyLevel there's no need to demolish the concrete and transport the waste to a landfill.
