Years ago we had porch mudjacked. The contractors drilled holes in the porch, then poured in a concrete slurry which was supposed to support it. That worked for a while, but eventually most of the slurry washed out from under the porch and down the incline on the side of the house. Based on that past bad experience I started looking around for other solutions to our problem.
About that time we got a packet of direct mail coupons. Included was one for a company that did polyjacking. I did some research, and found out the process used expanding polyurethane foam instead of a slurry to lift up concrete. After checking out the company's credentials we signed a contract to have them do the work.
The technician came out this week. I was not able to watch his progress closely, but I understand it looked something like this:
Now our porch and walkway are nice and level. The void is filled and no critters will be able to hang out in there. I hope that this is the last time we have to deal with this issue.

Problem solved, great solution!ReplyDelete
I thought so, too.Delete
Now that is really very clever. I wonder whether we have such a product/service in the UK.ReplyDelete
It would surprise me if you didn't.Delete
Sounds pretty neat.ReplyDelete
I'm a sucker for things like this.Delete
Great video! The foam sure is powerful stuff.ReplyDelete
But it's like new underwear, it feels good but others won't see it.
Wow, that's awesome.ReplyDelete
Yes, it was.Delete
