Slab jacking, also known as mudjacking or concrete leveling, is a repair technique used to lift and level sunken or uneven concrete slabs. Secure Set Spray Foam is ideally suited for this purpose. Here’s a simplified overview of the process:
There are many situations where Secure Set Spray Foam can be used to raise and level concrete. We frequently receive questions asking if it can be used for this project or that project. In almost all cases the answer is yes.
The common denominator is a situation where a concrete pad is no longer level in one or more areas. It could be in a corner, along an edge, or something similar.
The videos below demonstrate two cases where Secure Set Spray Foam was used to level a slab of concrete. We encourage you to watch both as there are similarities and some unique elements to each project which can apply to many other projects as well.
Our customers do their research and often compare bids from contractors to rip out and replace a concrete slab or level it with other methods before deciding to use Secure Set on their own.
Two things stand out as factors when choosing to do it themselves:
“The foam kit worked well. I raised a 9’x 14′ concrete slab 1″ and two corners 1/4″. Also filled voids under 2×4 wood break joints. Great product!”
“I had used Secure Set Spray Foam to raise and level the back porch slab, sidewalk going to the front door, and the driveway. The driveway has 9 sections 10feet X 10feet square over 11 inch thick, I found out after drilling. NOW all of the slabs are level, the sidewalk is level and the back porch has returned to original position. I would recommend this product. Easy to use, easy cleanup. About a third the cost of 4 other company’s I had called to do the leveling for me.
Thanks Secure Set!”
Sunken or uneven concrete slabs can be caused by a variety of factors. Here are some of the most common causes:
By identifying and addressing the underlying causes of slab settlement, homeowners and property managers can prevent further sinking and the need for slab jacking or other corrective measures.
Are there situations where I should not try to slab jack with Secure Set?
If the concrete pad that is unlevel is old and flaking and/or broken in several areas, you may be better off removing and replacing the pad and addressing the underlying cause of erosion. Trying to lift multiple pieces of concrete with spray foam could produce inconsistent results.
