Slab Raising

What Causes Concrete Slab to Settle?

Fundamental to healthy concrete is a solid substrate—well-compacted soils provide a foundation upon which concrete structures perform. Over time, forces of nature take their toll. Decomposing soils, erosion and ground water migration break down this foundation. This is the root cause for concrete slabs to sink or settle.

To Cure the Problem, Eliminate the Cause.

Injecting polyurethane resins into loosely consolidated soils, voids and water pathways will strengthen the earthen substrate and provide watertight encapsulation. With the soils consolidated and stabilized, concrete slabs will provide service for decades.

Precision Lift from Prime Resins targets the causes of settling and creates long-term advantages:

  • Erosion Control
  • Soil Stabilization
  • High-Strength Void Fill
  • Precise Slab Lifting

Precision Lift:

Engineered process for fast, clean, affordable solution with same day return to service

Step 1: Assessment—determine cause, test soil strength, photograph site, explain scope of work

Step 2: Site Preparation—mobilize equipment, protect surfaces, drill 3/8” holes

Step 3: Strengthen Soil—Inject Precision Lift foam to fill voids, stabilize soil and stop erosion Inject Precision Lift foam to fill voids, stabilize soil and stop erosion

Step 4: Lift Slab Precisely—Inject Precision Lift foam in short, even bursts to achieve precise, desired lift

Step 5: Validate Difference—confirm slab is lifted and fully supported for long-term solution

Step 6: Site Rejuvenation—remove equipment and protection materials, clean and photograph site for client review and permanent file

Step 7: Client Review—review completed project, material used, and confirm customer satisfaction

FACT: One square foot of
Precision Lift foam will support a load of more than 10,000 lbs.

Why Precision Lift?

Precision Lift targets the cause so the cure is long-lasting and at a fraction of the cost of slab replacement. At a minimum, concrete settlement is a nuisance and an eye sore. Uneven slabs are trip hazards and a threat to health and safety.
