Commercial Concrete Leveling in Greater Knoxville

When a concrete surface is no longer providing safe, solid support due to settlement issues, prompt action is necessary before the problem gets worse. Before you demolish the concrete slab, consider the advantages of an innovative alternative to common concrete remediation methods like mudjacking, concrete grinding, and total concrete replacement.

We utilize a high-strength polyurethane mixture that expands to fill voids under concrete, stabilize soil, and lift concrete slabs. With multiple formulas available, we can fit the needs of any commercial, industrial, or municipal job, large or small.

Over time, this highway settled and cracked, creating unsafe driving conditions.

Our alternative was used to fill voids beneath the slab and level the highway with little disruption.

Advantages of our method vs mudjacking & concrete grinding:

  • Lightweight - It weighs about 4 pounds per cubic foot, which is significantly less than the 120 pounds of typical fill material. This means there is almost no additional load added to the supporting soils.
  • High Capacity - Lifting action is a result of the expansion of the foam, allowing lift on much larger loads than typical mudjacking that relies on hydraulic pressure being contained under the slab.
  • Accurate Lift - Calculated reaction time of the polyurethane foam allows for precise lifting.
  • Waterproof - Polyurethane material is waterproof, so it will not wash out and can be used to under-seal the slab and stop other infrastructure leaks.
  • Non-Invasive - Equipment can be used in tight access areas, is less messy than other methods, and can be done more quickly. Concrete grinding, a common concrete repair technique, is loud, messy, and disrupts the area around the concrete.
  • Quick Cure Time - Cure time allows for even heavy traffic just 15 minutes after completion of the injection of the material. With mudjacking, the injected mortar must be allowed to cure before any weight can be put on the slab - a process that can take several days.

Mudjacking alternative can be used for a variety of applications

This product has been designed to work under the most extreme circumstances. With wet locations and heavy traffic in mind, it is the best choice for a wide variety of applications including:

Big lifting power through small holes. To lift a settled concrete slab with this method, 5/8" diameter holes are drilled through the slab. After an injector port is screwed into each hole, a special nozzle mixes two reactive materials and sprays the expanding mixture beneath the slab.

What causes a concrete slab to sink?

Concrete is hard to beat as a basic material for all kinds of load-bearing surfaces, from driveways and sidewalks to floors, roads, and airport runways. However, concrete has two characteristics that can cause problems: it's heavy and it can't stretch.

The weight of a concrete slab can sometimes cause the soil beneath the slab to compress. When this happens, all or part of the concrete slab will sink down under its own weight, sometimes cracking in the process. The cracking occurs because concrete isn't a resilient material. If a slab is unevenly supported, it's likely to crack because it can't stretch or bend.

In addition to unsightly cracks, slab settlement problems can also result in potential accidents, poor drainage, tripping hazards and expensive property damage.
