Concrete lifting with polyurethane foam such as PolyRenewal™ can repair your concrete quickly and with minimal disruption to your daily life.

  • It’s environmentally friendly, meaning it does not release harmful chemicals into the soil .

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

Why PolyRenewal™ Is Needed 

There are various reasons your exterior concrete slabs sink. However, before PolyRenewal™, there were two basic options for lifting concrete: mud jacking and slab replacement. Both approaches have limitations and disadvantages. PolyRenewal™ offers many advantages over traditional concrete lifting methods:  

PolyRenewal™ Vs. Replacement  

Replacing a concrete slab is both expensive and disruptive. Concrete slabs can take days – or even weeks – to cure. And even then, since the root cause of uneven concrete wasn’t addressed, the new slabs are likely to sink again. PolyRenewal™ material is lightweight, so it won’t add weight to weak soil. Best of all, PolyRenewal™ allows for the use of concrete within hours, not weeks.  

Common Concrete Lifting Tips & Mistakes  

Concrete Lifting Tips

  • Look For A Waterproof Solution

Florida is no stranger to rain. Unfortunately, all this rain can cause the soil under exterior concrete slabs to wash out. When looking for a repair, choose a waterproof solution that won’t wash out even in the worst of storms.   

  • Cure Time Is Important

Although cure time may seem like nothing to consider, a lot can happen while you wait for concrete to set. If it rains on fresh concrete or concrete that has been mud jacked recently, there are serious negative results. PolyRenewal™ has a cure time of only 15 minutes.  

  • Consider The Mess 

The equipment required to install other methods of concrete leveling can be large and heavy. This kind of machinery can tear up your lawn and landscaping and make it difficult to use when accessing specific locations. Consider an alternative that uses compact and transportable solutions.  

Concrete Lifting Mistakes  

  • Using Self Leveling Concrete  

DIY concrete lifting is not something we can recommend. Self-leveling concrete can sound alluring but is very tricky to use. One huge mistake is using warm water, causing the concrete to set too quickly and creating bubbles and bumps.  

  • Assuming All Concrete is Equal

Attempting to pour your own concrete takes a lot of preparation. The concrete alone requires a precise mixture of three ingredients — cement, water, aggregates (i.e., sand and gravel). Depending on where the concrete is being poured, different rations of dry ingredients are needed, as well as differing amounts of water.   

  • Slab Thickness Matters  

Concrete used in different areas needs to be different thicknesses. For example, a sidewalk slab should be four inches thick, while a driveway slab should be eight to ten inches thick.
