How Concrete Leveling Works
Polyurethane foam injection lifts uneven, sunken, cracked concrete. But how you ask? At JES our polyurethane foam injection utilizes expanding foam and modern technology to lift concrete.
Unlike traditional invasive concrete repair methods such as mudjacking and concrete replacement, polyurethane foam injection utilizes high density polymers to stabilize and level concrete.
Polyurethane foam injection is both lightweight and durable, and is able to support and lift sunken concrete back to its original level without any extra added weight.
How Concrete Leveling Works: What is Polyurethane Foam Injection?
Polyurethane foam injection combines the proven technique of concrete leveling with a specially-engineered expansive foam.
Polyurethane foam injection provides an affordable and less invasive solution to your sunken, cracked, uneven concrete issues.

4 Steps to Concrete Leveling with Polyurethane Foam Injection
Rather than using a mixture of concrete and mud, polyurethane foam injection uses high density polymers to raise concrete slabs back to their desired level using a simple 4-step process:
Step 1 - Penny-sized holes are drilled in the concrete slab
Step 2 – Foam injection ports are installed
Step 3 - Expansive polyurethane foam is injected to support and level the slab
Step 4 – The drilled holes are patched and smoothed out
Polyurethane Foam Injection Benefits:
Fast-acting: Reaches its final strength and is ready to support weight within 15 minutes
Noninvasive: Less messy than the mixture of concrete and mud used in mudjacking
Lightweight- Weighs 4-6 lbs. per cubic foot when installed, which is significantly less than the 120 lbs. per cubic foot as typical fill material
Waterproof – Cannot be washed out and is not affected by freeze and thaw cycles
Precise & Accurate Lift – foam reaction time provides target lifting operation
Environmentally friendly – Foam does not react with soil and does not release harmful chemicals
