All About PolyRenewal™ Injections

Fixing any cracked or sinking concrete takes time and consideration, no matter where you live. However, if you’re looking for a solution that’s non-invasive and fast-acting, you’ll want to consider a PolyRenewal™ Injection.

PolyRenewal™ injections aim to replace mudjacking as a concrete leveling solution. There’s more versatility to these injections than you may first believe. Talk to the companies working in the Florida area, especially Alpha Foundations, and you’ll see that PolyRenewal™ injections may be the best solution to your concrete slab woes.

What Is PolyRenewal™?

If you’re looking for a lifting and leveling measure that works explicitly with concrete, you’re in luck. PolyRenewal™ is an expanding foam that professional contractors can inject straight underneath your cracking, uneven concrete slabs.

PolyRenewal™ is meant to replace the mudjacking process by providing you with a less-invasive concrete lifting and leveling solution. There are various practical uses for this state-of-the-art repair. You can use PolyRenewal™ injections to lift concrete driveways, porches, patios, sidewalks, and more.

How We Install PolyRenewal™

How does PolyRenewal™ work? Alpha Foundations will take the following steps to use PolyRenewal™ effectively around your home:

leveling concrete with PolyRenewalâ„¢
  • Drill holes large enough for the injections in your existing concrete, usually the size of a penny.
  • Insert injection ports.
  • Mix the two-part polyurethane solution.
  • Begin the injection process, filling the void beneath your concrete with environmentally friendly PolyRenewal™ foam.
  • Seal and smooth over the injection points.

Effectively, PolyRenewal™ fills the voids that may have sprung up in your concrete while also providing your slab the boost it needs to remain in one place. That said, there are non-traditional circumstances into which PolyRenewal™ can play, all of which will help you overcome any long-term damage that’s been done to your concrete slabs.

The Advantages of PolyRenewal™

As mentioned, PolyRenewal™ is meant to replace the mudjacking process when it comes to the care and keeping of your property. What benefits does PolyRenewal™ have over alternative means of concrete repair and lifting?

Think of it this way: when you use PolyRenewal™ to support your property, you get:

  • A Waterproof Barrier and Lift: If you want your repairs to last, you’ll need your lifting and repair measures to be as watertight as possible. Luckily, PolyRenewal™ wicks off water, serving as the perfect hydrophobic barrier.
  • A Chemical Barrier: PolyRenewal™ does more than just protect your property from additional cracks or leaks. If there are any chemical spills in your area, or if you’ve just used too much weed killer, PolyRenewal™ will keep these unwanted chemicals from entering your home.
  • Shorter-Than-Average Cure Times: Concrete repair takes time, no matter what solution you’re using. However, the good news is that no matter how big your problematic concrete slab is or how significant your damage is, PolyRenewal™ cures within 30 minutes. That means there’s no waiting around to use your driveway, patio, sidewalk, or other area repaired with this solution.

All of these benefits pale in comparison when considering PolyRenewal™’s flexibility. If you’re looking for concrete repair and protective measures, PolyRenewal™ is the solution to use. While it’s far from a cure-all, you’ll be able to talk to your Alpha certified field inspector about the injections’ extracurricular uses to see just how far this product can take you.
