Lifting a Sunken Garage Floor in Rolling Meadows

Welcome to a garage floor project from the heart of Rolling Meadows, IL, presented by Acme Concrete Raising & Repair, the leading specialists in concrete lifting and repair solutions. This recent project involved lifting a significantly sunken garage floor, and allowed us to demonstrate our unparalleled expertise in the field. While many multi-service companies stepped back, fearing the complexity, we jumped in with the confidence of a true concrete raising specialist!

The Challenge of this Sunken Garage Floor

This project was no ordinary garage floor lift; this garage floor had sunk dramatically, posing not just aesthetic issues but also structural concerns. Of particular concern was how tightly wedged the floor was along the foundation. The reluctance of other companies to bid on this project made us only more determined; it required precision, expertise, and the right materials, all of which are hallmarks of Acme Concrete Raising & Repair. Our decision to take on this project was driven by our commitment to solving complex problems and our confidence in our specialized expertise!

Acme Concrete Raising & Repair's Expert Approach

Initial Preparations and Safety Measures

Our first step in tackling this sunken garage floor project was to ensure enough space between the garage floor and the foundation. This crucial measure prevented any potential damage during the lifting process, underscoring our commitment to safety and effectiveness. Learn more about our approach to garage floor raising.

The Strategic Drilling Process

Strategically drilling holes in specific locations is a technique perfected from our extensive experience. Anyone can drill a hole in a slab, but knowing where to drill them is where skill comes into play. This precision is vital for the success of the lifting process, ensuring we target the right areas for the most effective lift. Discover the intricacies of our raising process.

Utilizing High-Quality Polyurethane Foam

Unlike many others who rely on outdated or generic lifting materials, Acme Concrete Raising & Repair champions the use of high-quality specialty polyurethane foams for several compelling reasons. These specialized materials significantly outperform traditional methods, offering a longer-lasting, more reliable solution. The foam’s unique properties allow it to expand beneath the sunken floor, gently raising it back to its original position without risking further damage or instability.

The choice of polyurethane material is a testament to our commitment to quality and durability, ensuring that the fixes we provide aren’t just temporary patches but long-term solutions.

The Finishing Touches

After the lifting process is complete, our team meticulously fills the drilled holes with cement, which will blend in nicely over time. This attention to detail not only ensures the raised slab is visually appealing, but also leaves the floor ready for immediate use, minimizing disruption to our clients’ daily lives. Our quick turnaround time and the efficiency of our methods mean that homeowners can enjoy a restored garage floor without the lengthy wait times associated with other repair processes.

What makes Acme Concrete Raising & Repair different from other concrete lifting companies?

Our specialization in high-quality polyurethane foam concrete lifting, combined with our strategic approach, and expertise sets us apart. When it comes to concrete raising, you should never rely on a multi-purpose company where you risk finding out your “Hero” is really a zero.

Why is high-quality polyurethane foam preferred for concrete lifting?

Specialized high density polyurethane foams offer a more reliable, longer-lasting solution compared to traditional materials, with the added benefits of minimal disruption and immediate usability. However, it’s important to understand that one foam is not the best solution for every problem. Being specialists, we have varying formulations of polyurethanes which allow us to apply the best type of material based on each specific application.

How does Acme Concrete Raising & Repair ensure the safety of the lifting process?

By carefully preparing the site and strategically drilling holes, we minimize the risk of damage, ensuring a safe and effective lift. In some cases this may involve making relief cuts or trimming areas to create clearance. These types of preparations are always discussed with the owner prior to implementing.
