Concrete Lifting vs. Replacement: Which Should You Choose?
Whether you own a business with a parking lot or have a driveway that's giving you trouble, replacing your concrete slab will always be more expensive than lifting it by foam jacking. Here are just a few reasons why:
1. You could save up to 50% on your bill
One of the primary benefits of polyurethane concrete lifting is the reduction in overall cost. To replace a concrete slab, you must hire a crew to break up the slab, remove and discard the pieces, then re-stabilize the shifting foundation so new cement may be poured. That's a lot of manpower!
Once the cement has been poured, it can take seven days (if not more) to set fully. In total, you could be looking at a project that takes weeks!
Concrete lifting lowers your project costs and is much more efficient overall. No more waiting for concrete to set!
2. It's safer for your family / tenants / customers
Whether you own a commercial building, apartment complex, or 3-bedroom home in a cul-de-sac, the potential for injury increases when you have damaged concrete slabs on your property.
Where concrete replacement can be a multi-week project, the average concrete lifting project typically takes no more than 2–3 hours, reducing the possibility that someone might become injured.
Concrete lifting reduces the risk that someone might be injured on your property, and significantly shortens time spent fixing the issue in the first place.
3. The process is much less disruptive
Concrete slab replacement is a fairly disruptive process. You must use heavy, bulky equipment to demolish and re-pour the current slab, and may be forced to move or reorganize your space to avoid damage.
Concrete lifting has little to no impact on your surroundings and is designed to access hard-to-reach places.
