Settled Concrete Can Cause BIG Headache
Concrete settling and sinking is quite common. It occurs when the soil, at the time of installation, was not compacted properly, or when water runoff is not channeled properly. Concrete sinking may also happen due to the simple natural settling of earth over time.
Concrete lifting is the process of filling the voids under concrete, which results in the lifting of the concrete slab.
Homeowners, property owners and municipalities may experience concrete becoming uneven on
Any of these situations can pose significant safety and potential liability issues.
Concrete replacement is expensive
It is simple math. Concrete contractors must make up to three trips to a location to replace a simple slab of concrete with removal, framing, pouring, removal of framing material and cutting. Add to this the ever growing problem of environmental constraints of concrete disposal: the replacement of a simple 10’x10’ piece of driveway, walkway, or pool deck can cost upwards of a $1000.
Be environmentally friendly! Repair your concrete instead of replacing it!
What can be done with settled concrete?
Grinding: Inexpensive option, but not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Grinding concrete exposes the aggregate in the concrete. The integrity and strength of the concrete slab is also compromised during this process. If the concrete continues to settle, a ground slab can no longer be raised and leveled.
Replacement: Most expensive and time consuming option to level concrete. Colors of slabs will not match and can contribute to significant downtime of the area for curing time.
Raising & Stabilizing: Polyurethane concrete raising and mudjacking are two methods used to raise and support sunken concrete or unstable concrete slabs by drilling holes and pumping material under the slab. Settled concrete is commonly a result of poor soil conditions below a slab.
Mixed Fresh for You
American Mud Jack Co mix’s polyurethane daily to order and has the advantage of selling you fresh material because it does not sit in a distribution center waiting for you to buy.
You never know how long other polyurethane foams were staged at the manufacturing facility before shipping and then sits at the distribution center. Polyurethane foam has a shelf life and there are major benefits to buying manufacturer direct.
Simple, it’s because we care about Mother Earth
Actually, there are many reasons why American Mud Jack Co polyurethane foam material is different from the rest, but one of the main reasons is that American Mud Jack poly is made from over 40% recycled materials. That’s pretty impressive considering there is absolutely no other poly material on the market that offers this type of reduced carbon footprint!
Specifically engineered for raising, leveling, and stabilizing concrete. Our patented materials (U.S. Provisional Patent Application No. 61/583.295) are made from recycled components, making it the “greenest” polyurethane foam on the market.
Being Green Requires World Leading Innovation
We care about our environment and manufacturing our products and materials in the U.S.A. At American Mud Jack, “green” is more than just a buzzword, it’s an active approach towards creating a more positive impact on the environment and our daily lives.
