Polyurethane Slab Jacking / Slab lifting
Soil stabilisation is one of the most important and an integral part in any structural project since it prepares soil to become the base that will support the whole structure. The soil is compacted to a solid stable substrate where foundations are laid upon.
Over time some unwantedproblems may appear that may destabilise the sub soil under the structure that can cause structural failures in homes, highways and buildings.
Shrinkage or settling of filled in soil that was not properly compacted or properly tested eventually lead to the sinking of the structure on top.
Erosion of the soil underneath the slab due to poor drainage and ground water movement loosen and wash away the soil causing the concrete to crack and sink.
Seismic activities like earthquakes and vibrations from a busy road or heavy load can cause soil settlement.
Recently there has been a noticeable increase of structural damages involving homes and other structures that couldhave been aggravated by extreme conditions like excessive rains, flooding and droughts. These require immediate professional attention and repair.

The Solution Polyurethane Slab Jacking / Slab Lifting
Polyurethane Slab Jacking / Slab Liftingis a technique that has been proven very effective in lifting concrete, with easy application, less disruptive repairs, in less time and with less cost.It is designed to deal with the problem without going through the hassle of major excavation, or having to put in anewfloor or a new foundation.
It provides the latest special concrete repair technology for sunken concrete slabs by injecting polyurethane polymers through small drill holes. It fills the void and stabilises the weak soil under the structure then pushes up to lift the concrete slab to its original level.
