Frequently Asked Questions

How affordable is concrete raising?

Concrete raising is typically about half the cost of replacing the same concrete. Ultimately, the cost of raising or stabilizing concrete is a direct reflection of how much leveling material the project will require. Call us today to discuss your needs and see how we can serve you!

What kind of material do you use to raise concrete?

The polyurethane foam concrete raising material is injected as a liquid that sets up as rigid foam. This foam will never lose density or shrink. This material is lighter than traditional mudjacking material and requires fewer holes to install. Even better, the holes are smaller which creates a virtually invisible repair!

Will there be heavy trucks on my lawn?

Our trucks remain parked on the street. While the concrete repair crew is using polyurethane to repair your concrete, we run a hose straight from the truck/trailer to the repair site without driving a single piece of equipment on your lawn.

Is there any maintenance needed?

When our work is completed, it will be your responsibility to caulk the seams of the sections that were repaired or backfill against any exposed areas to contain the material and prevent future sinking.

Self-leveling cement caulk can be easily purchased from home improvement stores and it works great for sealing joints. Using a silicone-based and self-leveling caulk is recommended. If a crack is large, to use less material, sand can be used first between the cracks before applying the caulk on top.

Preventing water from going under the slab is the key to preserving the repaired slab. Make sure that your downspouts are correctly placed to ensure that water runs away from your concrete slabs or foundation.

Taking these suggested steps for preserving your raised concrete is a condition of your Level-Tech Systems warranty.
