Boulder Concrete Leveling Services
Many homeowners believe cracking, uneven, improperly settling concrete slabs around their home are simply a normal part of the home’s aging process. While it may be a common occurrence, cracked, sinking concrete driveways, sidewalks, walking paths, patios, and other concrete slabs pose problems that, if left unaddressed, can lead to more serious problems like a sinking foundation for your Boulder residence. Luckily, these things can be fixed before they worsen, and concrete leveling services from Van Matre can help! We can lift concrete slabs back to or close to their original position to make it as level as possible, seal any existing cracks, and improve the overall look and function of concrete around your home!
Leveled Concrete by Van Matre
Historically, concrete leveling has been completed through a process called mudjacking in which a slurry of mud and concrete is pumped below the surface of a sinking slab. Unfortunately, concrete is heavy, so the extra weight of the mixture tended to create additional sinkage over time. At Van Matre, we use the latest concrete leveling technology to lift and level sinking slabs without the addition of all that extra weight. Polyjacking is a process that’s very similar to mudjacking with one key difference: the substance used. We pump an expandable polyurethane foam below the surface of uneven concrete instead of the traditional concrete slurry. As it expands, it presses upwards on the bottom of the slab to push it back toward its original position. Once hardened, it provides necessary support for your concrete, and instead of weighing approximately 100 lbs. per cubic foot like the concrete slurry used in mudjacking, our material weighs just about 2 lbs. per cubic foot! This process sets us apart from other concrete leveling service companies in Boulder. Sinking foundations can seem daunting but our experts are ready to jump in to stop damage in its tracks!
