Concrete Leveling Service by PCC
There are a few tips you could try when it comes to slab raising or lifting a concrete driveway, so before you call a concrete leveling service, see if you have the right equipment to do so. 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. There are actually a few different options you have in order to raise a concrete slab with foam. They vary in difficulty, speed, and cost and all require different tools. If you use heavy concrete, a small mistake can ruin the surface and it’s a hassle to mix which is why foam tends to be the easiest to work with than mud. Another benefit is that it won’t settle in a few months after applying.
If you still have questions about how you use foam to raise a concrete slab, figure out what you have at your disposal. First, you need to calculate how big the space that needs to be filled is and use concrete chalk to mark the spots. 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. Then you will need the drill and vac, but be sure to wear gloves and protective eyewear. You can use a pump or manually mix and pour the foam, then fill the holes and patch with concrete mix. A concrete drill 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.
