Arizona Polyurethane Lifting

Phoenix Concrete Services
Nothing is more frustrating than going outside and seeing your concrete walkway or concrete driveway shifting in every which way but loose. Let’s not even begin to talk about the diminished curb appeal of a home that has a driveway that has settled. We are glad you found this page! At Dalinghaus Construction, we utilize a high-density polyurethane to densify soils during our Phoenix concrete leveling and lifting services. Polyurethane Slab Lifting is not only great to fix misaligned driveways, it is also amazingly efficient at lifting and leveling any other concrete slabs around your home. From walkways leading up to your home to that sunken concrete patio around your pool, our Phoenix concrete repair experts can bring all of them back up and into place like when they were first poured. Here are a couple of quick facts about our Polyurethane Concrete Lifting Process:
  • Most projects can be completed in 1 day! Our polyurethane material can set up in the presence of water.
  • Our injection holes are about the size of a nickel, if you can still find one!
  • Polyurethane material is 95% lighter in weight than traditional mud jacking material. -Installing a heavy material onto soils that have settled is only going to cause more problems in the future. – Why would you want to add more weight to soils that have already proven they can’t support the weight of the slab above it? – It is like attaching an anchor to a sinking ship.
Concrete typically doesn’t become misaligned for no reason. The goal of our Phoenix concrete repair company is to have the best concrete crack repair and concrete leveling and lifting solutions for our Arizona customers, that can prevent the addition of additional stresses to the concrete and help to minimize the loads on the soils below.

Types of Concrete Situations that would benefit from lifting

Not all concrete can be repaired utilizing our polyurethane lifting process. Here are the more common scenarios that polyurethane lifting would be an excellent solution to an existing concrete problem. If you are experiencing any of the problems mentioned below, contact the Phoenix concrete repair experts at Dalinghaus Construction today.

Misaligned Concrete Joints

This is common on sidewalks and walkways at the relief joint in the concrete. These misalignments can happen due to poor soil conditions, erosion, or tree roots. Polyurethane Lifting will work on the poor soil conditions, but it won't help if the tree roots have heaved or pushed up a section of the concrete.

Garage Slabs

Garage slabs are notorious for misaligning and cracking. This is typically because the concrete slab of a garage is poured independently to the garage's foundation. This then transfers all of the loading of the concrete to the soil directly below it. In some instances, the garage's foundation can begin to settle and then bind the garage slab. This causes additional weight to be placed at those locations and they typically result in cracks and sunken slabs of your garage floor.

Deep Injection and Soil Densification

The deep injection process of Polyurethane Lifting is an effective way to densify the soils below an existing structure. Our Orange County concrete leveling process will go along the perimeter of an existing structure and pipes will be driven into the soils below. The polyurethane is then pumped to densify the soils and if desired, it can lift the footing of structures. Typical recovery of up to an 1" can be expected, but the main goal is to densify the existing soils and stop any additional further movement.

Sinkhole Repair/Plumbing Leak Repairs

When we think of sinkholes we think of large holes that open up in the earth. We see a lot of these sinkholes in sandy loose soil areas of the country, such as Florida. We do have some sinkholes in Arizona, but they are few and far between. Typically, the sinkholes in Arizona are created by a plumbing leak. You see it all the time where pipe breaks occur beneath streets and roadways and the things above it sink into the earth. You can also have this occur on a smaller scale beneath your home. Small plumbing leaks that are unknown can turn into larger problems down the road. The water will compromise or wash out the soils, just like the larger sinkholes, and eventually can lead in a cavity opening up. Although they are rare to experience as a homeowner, they do happen.
