When it comes to raising concrete slabs with foam, you won’t find any company with more experience and a professional work ethic than Concrete Raising Systems. During winter, the ground is frozen until late February or early March. This means foam can’t be used to lift a concrete slab outside, but it can be used to lift concrete slabs in the garage or basement. The 2-part concrete lifting foam process is sensitive to cold temperatures outside.
We are concrete lifting foam experts
Concrete Raising Systems has been in the foam jacking business for over ten years. How do you know if the company you call is working part-time or just getting into the business? Someone explaining how to do foam jacking is not a good way to learn how to do it. Learning by doing is the best teacher. In the beginning years, Concrete Raising Systems was shooting foam into hundreds of boxes to see how it would be affected by temperatures and humidity. There are too many variables using foam to lift concrete for someone new to the business to learn it from a manual or a weekend training.
Ten years of experience with concrete lifting foam
Their experience with foam and building houses over the years put them in an excellent position to give customers a proper quote. They can tell from the shape of a driveway where the challenges will be. They use skills and experience to lift your concrete right the first time. If your concrete sinks again (which it will likely not), they will be in business to back up their work.
What does your sinking concrete cost you?
Hire a part-time company without experience, and you may have to pay someone to lift your concrete again, which will cost you. If you don’t get your driveway fixed and have to accelerate to get into the garage and brake fast and hard to stop, you put more wear and tear on the car, possibly costing you more in maintenance. If you don’t get your sidewalk fixed, it could cost you a potential liability claim. If you are trying to sell your house and don’t get your sinking concrete fixed, potential buyers will deduct the cost of fixing it, which could cost you.
Concrete Raising Systems has years of experience with foam jacking. They own the company and do the work, so it will be done correctly and quoted correctly. Contact Ken and Jason for a quote if you want an ‘experienced company’ to raise your concrete slab with foam.
