How We Raise Settled Concrete with Polyurethane Foam
If a picture is worth a thousand words, video must be even better right? Watch how Acme Concrete raises and stabilizes sunken concrete slabs with expandable foam.
Acme Succeeds Where Concrete Fails
Acme’s Smart Lift System is a modern polyurethane injection system used to repair concrete structures, including:
Improve your property’s curb appeal and reduce risks for property liability at a faction of the cost and time of concrete replacement. Fix your concrete using a neat, clean, and non-invasive concrete repair process with superior strength and long-lasting results.
Proven, Industrial Strength Concrete Repair
Utilizing a trusted and proven process for large highway projects and the benefits of modern technology, Acme Concrete will lift and stabilize your concrete slabs and structures. Acme Concrete Raising and Repair is the first concrete raising contractor located in the Chicagoland area that focused specifically on raising sunken concrete with polyurethane injections.
Acme’s expanding polyurethane foam process provides maximum subgrade strength and costs less than traditional concrete repair or replacement. The Northwest Chicago suburbs are no stranger to extreme environmental changes — our concrete lifting foams will not shrink or expand due to moisture changes, nor will they wash out like aggregate-based slurries used by mudjacking companies.

Holes about the size of a dime are drilled into the settled concrete slab. Special injection ports are then installed allowing a clean, controlled injection of the polyurethane lifting foam.
A polyurethane injection gun is securely attached to the ports. Controlled injections are performed resulting in a two-part polymer flowing through the space between the structure and its failed subbase. The polymer forms a structural foam that fills voids while raising and leveling the settled structure.
Once the concrete has been raised, the lifting material is fully cured in about 15-minutes, allowing immediate, unrestricted use of the area. The injection ports are then easily removed and the holes are filled with a high quality grout leaving them virtually unnoticeable.
