Repair for sinking garage floor

We thought we'd chime in here for a slightly different perspective on sinking garage floor issues. Tom, you are absolutely correct in why the garage floor settles over time and most likely after 50 yrs its most likely done "moving" , but what we want to tell you about is a process called polyjacking.

Our company Concrete Corrections specializes in lifting, supporting and void filling with polyurethane foam. You may be familiar with spray foam insulation, the very best way to insulate a home these days. Well, our product is very similar, but it is specially formulated for concrete lifting purposes.

Front steps, walkways and patios can be brought back up into place within a matter of hrs. Pool decks are free of trip hazards. And garage floors brought back to level and can now support the weight of vehicles without worry of settlement. We even work alongside PIERING companies who lift entire homes!

So, with all that being said, tearing the concrete out is not always the needed remedy. Often times we can save the homeowner TIME & MONEY by lifting / leveling with polyurethane foam rather than replacement. Front yards and landscaping doesn't get destroyed, we repair concrete quickly, the polyurethane foam weighs ~4 lbs / cu ft, so chances of resettlement is nearly zero.
