Concrete Leveling Service by FSS
When it comes to slab raising or lifting a concrete driveway, there are a few things you could try if you have the right equipment, so before you call a concrete leveling service, take this information and see if you’re up to the task. There are actually a few different options you have in order to raise a concrete slab. They vary in difficulty, speed, and cost and all require different tools. You can try a concrete leveling service with foam by essentially getting a masonry bit to drill a hole through the concrete and spraying the foam so that it expands, hardens, and fills the void in the ground. The foam tends to be the easiest to work with than mud and it won’t settle in a few months after applying. On the other hand, if you use heavy concrete, a small mistake can ruin the surface and it’s a hassle to mix.
So how exactly can you use foam to raise a concrete slab? Well, first you need to calculate how big the space that needs to be filled is, clear the area as best as you can before working, gather tools such as tape, drill, ⅝ masonry bit, a jack, a wheelbarrow, bucket, pump, and level. You can use concrete chalk to mark the spots.
Be sure to wear gloves and protective eyewear, then you will need the drill and vac. You can use a pump or manually mix and pour the foam, then fill the holes and patch with concrete mix. A concrete drill with a ⅝ inch masonry bit is then used to make holes in the concrete. You would then use a concrete jack to lift the slab to the correct height and use a pump to pour the foam in which will harden and fill the void underneath.
The most cost-effective way to level your driveway with foam is without a pump but it takes a bit more time and requires more precision while mixing and pouring. Meanwhile, the most expensive option you have means hiring a professional to perform a concrete leveling service. That means you don’t have to do the work, they often will have all the necessary tools and equipment, and they will most certainly do the job more effectively.
