Foamjection foams are environmentally friendly, consisting of 39-49% renewable and recycled materials.
Is Foam Safe?
Foamjection does not use Toxic Chemicals
Major toxic chemicals, often associated with some types of polyurethanes, such as some blowing agents, formaldehyde, benzene and toluene are NOT used in Foamjection foams. Most of what is warned against on the Internet pertains to these chemicals.
As Safe as the Cushions you sit on!
The foam we install in the ground is like the foam you sleep on in your mattress and sit on in your couch. Instead of it being built in a factory, we make the foam directly under the slab. Instead of being light and fluffy it is firm and strong.
Directly from the EPA
The EPA states that cured polyurethane is fine unless burned or ground into a fine dust..which will likely never happen with being installed under concrete slabs.
This is why we offer FREE concrete raising Estimates. Our experienced crew members will be able to provide you with an accurate quote for completing your specific project.
What kind of material is used to raise concrete?
Polyurethane foam concrete raising material is injected as a liquid and sets-up as a rigid foam. This foam will NEVER loose density or shrink.
How are the holes filled?
After the concrete is raised, a foam plug is inserted into the hole and the hole is patched over with cement. The concrete is ready for use immediately.
Is there any maintenance needed?
When our work is completed, it will be your responsibility to caulk the seams of the repaired sections or backfill against any exposed areas to contain the material and prevent future sinking.
Easily purchase self-leveling cement caulk at a home improvement store to seal joints. Using a silicone based, self-leveling caulk is recommended.
Preventing water from going under the slab is key to preserving the repaired slab. Make sure your downspouts are correctly placed to assure water runs away from your concrete slabs or foundation.
What concrete can be raised?
Solid slabs of concrete can be raise and stabilized. If you are not sure if your concrete can be raised, fill out the Free Estimate form to contact Foamjection.
Investment / Cost
Concrete raising is typically half the cost of replacing your concrete slab. While polyurethane material is more expensive than mudjacking material, the smaller hole size, lighter material weight and fewer injection holes make the investment in polyurethane well worth it.
What is the application Foamjection?
Injecting specialized foam below the surface of a slab to raise and/or support the slab.
Benefits of Foamjection:
- Remove trip hazards
- Create standard steps
- Re-pitch slabs for proper drainage
- Stabilize slabs that move
- Support slabs after washout
How is Foamjection different from mudjacking?
- Smaller Holes
