Why is PolyRenewal the Best Concrete Lifting Option?

While there are various ways to repair concrete, the best option to address sinking slabs for good is with PolyRenewal concrete lifting.

Schedule Free Inspection

We sat down with an expert on PolyRenewal, a certified inspector who works for our sister company Ohio Basement Authority in Columbus, OH. He has several years of training and experience with using PolyRenewal as a concrete lifting product. You may have heard that PolyRenewal is the best product in the industry for concrete lifting, but we wanted to find out why.

Common Concrete Lifting Questions

The SettleStop PolyRenewal™ system utilizes a very innovative foam that is incredibly effective for concrete lifting and stabilization. The foam, made from polyurethane, is very lightweight, so it will not exacerbate soil and concrete settlement. It is also waterproof to protect the soil underneath concrete slabs against the humid and rainy Florida summers. The material also protects chemicals from leaking into your home, such as weed killer or fertilizers. Furthermore, SettleStop PolyRenewal™ foam cures within 15 to 20 minutes, so you can reap the benefits in less than a day.

PolyRenewal is about three pound per cubic foot. With mudjacking, they pump in a concrete slurry that adds about 100 pounds per cubic foot. Why would you want to add all of that extra weight to a slab that’s already sinking? Another perk is the cure time. With PolyRenewal, you can use the concrete immediately after we install it. If it’s under your driveway, you can drive on it right after. With mudjacking, the cure time is a week or so. You also can’t just mudjacking for certain areas like pool decks, so that gives an extra advantage to using PolyRenewal.

Yes. PolyRenewal is made from an environmentally friendly material that is waterproof and won’t degrade over time. This means it won’t leach harmful chemicals into the surrounding soil.

PolyRenewal is cost-effective because it offers a solution that is long-lasting, unlike mudjacking and slab replacement. And your concrete will never cost less to repair than it does right now.

No. PolyRenewal™ is a proprietary product developed by Groundworks and is available exclusively from Alpha Foundations and other Groundworks companies.
