Are you dealing with sinking, settling, or cracking concrete? If so, foam jacking, also known as polyurethane injection, URETEK Method, and polyurethane concrete lifting, could be the solution you’ve been searching for.

Structural-grade polyurethane foam can improve the evenness of concrete. Learn how polyurethane lifts and stabilizes concrete, and consider foam jacking to restore concrete around your home or business.

The Foam Jacking Process

Foam jacking, also known as polyurethane injection and polyurethane foam foundation repair, is a fast, precise, and efficient method for stabilizing and lifting foundations. The process starts with a trained technician drilling small holes about the size of a penny into the affected areas of the foundation. These holes serve as injection sites for the polyurethane foam.

Then, the technician injects the structural-grade polyurethane foam directly underneath the foundation through the holes. The foam quickly expands, filling empty spaces in the soil, or voids, and gently compacting loose soil.

Polyurethane foam works by expanding and applying pressure to the concrete slab to lift and stabilize it. The polyurethane foam hardens and creates a stable base that supports the concrete for years.

Why You Should Consider Foam Jacking

Foam jacking stands out among other concrete lifting methods for its unique attributes. One of its major advantages is speed. Polyurethane foam injection concrete lifting allows you to resume use of the repaired area in as little as 15 minutes!

Minimally Invasive, Environmentally Inert

This procedure is minimally invasive. The concrete repair team uses compact equipment to access and repair areas in tight spaces without causing significant disturbance or requiring major excavation.

At URETEK, we use a two-component, high-density expanding polyurethane that’s environmentally inert and completely non-toxic.

Versatile Applications

Technicians can apply foam jacking to various concrete surfaces, including driveways, sidewalks, pool decks, and garage floors. The method also works in residential, industrial, and commercial settings. The high-density foam can work in a variety of environments without losing strength.

Cost-Effective and Long-Lasting Solution

Foam jacking offers a cost-effective alternative to full concrete removal and replacement. The process saves time, labor, and resources, making it an efficient and cost-effective repair option.

Best of all, polyurethane injection is a long-lasting solution for stabilizing concrete. URETEK’s foam has industry-leading hydrophobic properties; it resists water that causes erosion and void formation.
