How to level an uneven concrete slab with geopolymers – structural realignment and leveling.
Concrete slabs, floors, driveways, and walkways can settle over time. These settlement issues are often caused by water infiltration, uncompacted soils, loose base materials, and occasionally for other reasons as well. Whatever the reason for the sinking uneven slab there are methods to fix the problem. Mudjacking is a common method of raising uneven concrete slabs however it is often thought to be more of an ongoing maintenance process rather than a more lasting solution. A longer lasting method involves chemical compaction grouting. Utilizing expansive structural geopolymers we are able to inject the material through small diameter holes providing stabilization and lift of the affected slab. The method we use is the URETEK Method® and it has a lengthy and successful track record of use throughout the world. Some of the benefits of using our geopolymer injection process over mudjacking are a long-lasting material which typically only needs a single treatment in many cases, the material used is also quite lightweight yet incredibly strong. To recap a few benefits of our process:
- High-strength material
- Light-weight material
- Proven track record throughout the world
