Amarillo Concrete Leveling With Slab-Lifting Foam

Concrete Leveling Services for Amarillo

If concrete at your Amarillo, Texas, home or business begins to sink or crack, you have two options: concrete leveling or replacing the whole slab.

The more cost-effective solution is concrete leveling, and Childers Brothers is who to turn to locally for thoroughly tested and proven concrete-lifting foam services to lift and level your slab.

When most people think of concrete leveling, their image is probably something like lifting a sunken sidewalk slab.

The type of expanding polyurethane foam used by Childers Brothers can do that and much, much more.

Most people aren’t aware of this, but the U.S. Department of Transportation has been using polyurethane foam leveling (or polyjacking as it is sometimes called) for a while now. Polyurethane foam adds stability to our country’s bridges, critical heavy-traffic intersections, and even our busiest airport runways.

For Amarillo homeowners the most common used for slab-lifting foam include:

  • A driveway that is suddenly a bit bumpier and more uneven than it used to be.
  • Pool decks, patios, and porches with concrete slab work or structural support.
  • Sidewalks, walkways, and paths around your property lined by landscaping.
  • Floor slabs in greenhouses, barns, sheds, or other structures.

Regardless of what type or size of slab you want to lift, Childers Brothers employs the premier polyurethane slab lifting foam from Prime Resins, and we have witnessed its precision and versatility when lifting slabs for other homeowners near you.

How Childers Brothers’ Precision Foam Lifting Works

First small holes (much smaller, and fewer, than were required for mudjacking) are drilled into the concrete slab.

Then, Injection by injection, the polyurethane foam is strategically injected in such a way as to raise the concrete slabs back to within 1/8th of an inch of the desired position. Our technicians are amazing and we’ve been in the business since 1972 — over 15,000 happy customers served.

Then, the holes are filled in and you are set. The foam cures in 20 minutes, so your concrete will be ready to use almost immediately.

Advantages of Concrete Leveling with Foam

  1. Foam provides a permanent solution: Unlike mudjacking, which erodes over time, polyurethane foam is designed to not break down underground. Water doesn’t affect it and neither do the chemicals in the ground.
  2. Environmentally friendly: It is understandable that people might be leery of putting a chemical foam into the soil. The foam, however, is inert. It won’t break down in the soil and it won’t leech chemicals. It is chemically harmless.
  3. It’s light-weight: Unlike mudjacking, which is heavy and can cause further settlement, polyjacking is lightweight, filling voids and compressing soil through expansion, not by adding weight.

Filling Voids

Voids are otherwise known as the space between your concrete slabs and the foundational soil underneath (or pockets within the soil).

They most often appear where more water is present, either from washout of after soil has settled, causing slabs to sink further.

Because our foam weighs less than more conventional materials like grout, there’s reduced stress.

Extra Joint/Slab Support

When we’re looking at porches or patios, support columns and slabs can lack critical support which we can quickly provide using the foam rather than going for a complete ‘throw away and replace’ approach. That would be a more costly and less environmentally friendly option.
