Foam Jacking with Polyurethane in Houston, TX
URETEK has the most experience with innovative polyurethane foam jacking foundation repair. Use URETEK for non-invasive interior foundation repair.
URETEK utilizes innovative polyurethane injection processes for foundation repair, soil stabilization and void fill. Polyurethane foam foundation repair is a faster, non-invasive alternative to interior pilings. URETEK pioneered and perfected the polyurethane injection process in 1979. Our injection process is called The URETEK Method® and it’s used to lift and stabilize interior foundations. The polyurethane foam we use is patented and unlike any other foam on the market. It’s structural-grade, long-lasting, hydro-insensitive and environmentally inert for foam concrete raising applications.

How Polyurethane Foam Jacking for Concrete Lifting Works.
Cracking tiles, cracking walls and sticking doors around the central portion of your home are typical signs of foundation problems. Settlement and erosion are the most common reasons for interior foundations issues. Polyurethane injections is a great, long-lasting way to lift and stabilize your foundation without installing interior pilings.
Once the subsiding or weak area has been identified and a polyurethane foam jacking foundation repair solution has been created by your URETEK Representative, a small crew of highly-skilled URETEK technicians prep the affected area by drilling penny-sized holes through foundation. Each hole is an injection site for polyurethane. After the site is prepped, highly-skilled technicians inject polyurethane foam directly underneath your foundation, the foam concrete raising process begins and it starts expanding within seconds. Expansion happens via a chemical reaction due to our two-part formula. No toxic or harmful odors or gasses are produced in the chemical reaction. As the polyurethane expands it stabilizes the soil base by filling nearby voids, soil fissures and gently compacting loose soil. After the soil has reached point of refusal, the polyurethane foam begins to gently lift the subsided foundations. URETEK technicians closely monitor elevations to ensure appropriate lift during the polyurethane foam jacking process.
If your foundation doesn’t require lift, we can cease polyurethane foam injection before a significant lift to complete a zero-excavation void fill or soil stabilization solution. Polyurethane foundation repair is a versatile process and can be throughout the home, even for general concrete lifting at driveways, patios, pools and pool decks.
