Step 1 – DRILL
Step 1 - Drill

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.

Step 2 – FILL
Step 2 - Fill

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.

Step 3 – PATCH
Step 3 - Patch

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.

Our goal is to provide long lasting, economical solutions that eliminate the need to remove and replace settled concrete. We proudly service the Western, North and Northwest Chicago suburbs.
