What causes uneven concrete?
One of the many reasons concrete becomes uneven is because the soil beneath our feet is subject to the forces of nature. Over time, soil underneath the concrete can shift and settle, causing the concrete to sink or become uneven. This can happen due to changes in the moisture content of the soil, changes in temperature, or the natural settling process that occurs over time.
Another reason why concrete becomes uneven is due to improper installation. If the concrete is not installed properly or if it is not properly reinforced, it will show up later on. In addition, exposure to extreme weather conditions like freeze-thaw cycles, flooding and humidity can cause shifting.
As a result of these factors, concrete sinks and drops creating an unappealing surface and hazardous structure. Rather than replacing your concrete, PolyTex Concrete owner David Butler has found a better solution.
“A lot of the time the concrete is in good condition, but we focus on the root problem which is the soil. We come in and raise, level, stabilize, and save that concrete at a fraction of the cost.”
Don’t replace it, repair it!
It’s true, your concrete can be repaired instead of replaced! Polyurethane is a diverse synthetic resin used in a variety of products around the world. It comes in many forms, and one of them is a spray foam that expands and molds itself to its surroundings.
The PolyTex team will meet with each customer and give them a free estimate after making an assessment of the damage. Once the team comes up with a customized solution for your concrete, they will inject this polyurethane foam underneath the concrete structure. This will raise the slab of concrete back to its original height, and the foam will bind to both the slab and soil underneath. This method will stabilize the concrete and keep water from seeping in and eroding the soil.
This process repairs the conditions of your structure within minutes, returning your concrete to normal immediately. Raising the concrete back to its original height and controlling erosion issues will ultimately extend the life of your concrete for many years to come.
“Most jobs can be completed within a couple of hours and are ready to use that same day,” David says. “We drill a small hole within the slab, no bigger than three-eighths of an inch, which is the size of a pencil head, and it’s unnoticeable once we are finished. There’s no wait time or dry time,” says David.
Your Local Concrete Magicians
PolyTex Concrete uses their method in a variety of ways to solve a plethora of problems. “Where there is concrete, we can repair it,” David declares. David and his team repair concrete structures for residential, commercial and industrial sites. Here are some common projects they take on.
- Void Filling
- Expansion Joints
- Erosion Control
Industrial and Commercial Services
- Parking Lots
- Shopping Malls
- Warehouses and facilities
- Expansion joints
- Retaining Walls
- Bulkhead Sealing
Using high density polyurethane, PolyTex will fill voids under concrete caused by shifting. Filling voids with this material eliminates the need to remove the concrete and place the subgrade. The high-density material will bind to the concrete and soil, providing the correct support to put the slab back in place.
If your wood joints between your concrete slabs are rotting, PolyTex will use waterproofing replacements that match the color of your concrete. This will prevent erosion under the slabs and add years to your concrete.
High traffic areas used by heavy trucks and equipment will begin to see wear and tear over time. PolyTex has experience solving problems for commercial and industrial clients, and saving them thousands of dollars. Let them help you get back in business with their polyurethane services to raise and stabilize your warehouse, yard, parking lot and more.
Even concrete structures that aren’t attached to dirt can be repaired by PolyTex Concrete, such as bulkheads. David and his team often work to repair bulkheads on Lake Conroe. “Over time, the wave action can deteriorate your bulkhead,” David says. “We can actually use a non-excavating process, using rods to seal the backside of your bulkheads. That foam will also repel water, so you won’t have to worry about that piece of concrete in the future.”
