The combined weight of concrete and the vehicles and structures it supports often causes the soil beneath the slab to shift and settle. When this happens, major problems can occur.
The damage done by sinking concrete can have several side effects. Tripping hazards on stairs and walkways are common, as are cracked and uneven driveways and garages. On a larger scale, roadways and parking lots can become dangerous or even unusable if the problem is left untreated.
PolyLevel® is designed specifically to repair a variety of residential and commercial concrete problems. Innovative Basement Systems is your certified contractor for PolyLevel® concrete leveling in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Fargo and surrounding areas.
Contractors have traditionally relied on mud jacking to fix settling concrete, a technique that involves pumping a liquid mortar mixture underneath the slab. Unfortunately, this strategy is invasive, heavy, and not necessarily precise.
Fortunately, foundation and concrete repair specialists now have a new technique that's more effective at raising settled concrete. Polymer injection harnesses the expansive force of a structural grade geopolymer to provide fast concrete leveling, fill voids in soil and strengthen soil that has poor load-bearing qualities.
The polymer consists of two separate liquids that are combined right at the injection nozzle to trigger a chemical reaction that turns the blended ingredients into expanding, high-density foam. The foam flows into voids and between loose soil particles, expanding to about 15 times its initial volume. This expansive action effectively lifts settled concrete. An experienced technician, like those at Innovative Basement Systems, can control the application to create just the right amount of raising pressure.
The polymer begins to harden quickly after doing its raising work. Within just 30 minutes, it reaches 90% of its final strength, enabling damaged concrete roads and slabs to be put back into service right away. The speed of polymer injection repairs is another huge advantage over mortar pumping.
In addition to lifting and realigning settled and/or shifted concrete, polymer injection can be done prior to construction to improve soil stability and strength. Injections as deep as 20ft.-30ft. are possible.
