In the world of foundation repair, the evolving technologies and methods allow us to provide efficient and effective solutions for various foundation problems. One such innovative technique is the use of polyurethane foam injection. At Hargrave Custom Foundation Repair, we have adopted this method to resolve many foundation issues. Let’s delve into why polyurethane foam injection is gaining popularity in the foundation repair industry and the benefits it can offer to homeowners.
Understanding Polyurethane Foam Injection
Polyurethane foam injection. polyfoam injection, is a process that involves injecting a high-density polyurethane foam into the soil underneath a structure’s foundation. This is done through small holes drilled into the concrete, and the foam then expands, filling voids and lifting.
Key Benefits of Polyurethane Foam Injection
Quick and Efficient
One of the most significant advantages of polyurethane foam injection is its efficiency. The process is much faster than traditional repair methods, often completed in just a few hours. This quick turnaround time results in minimal disruption to your daily life.
Effective Lifting Capability
The expanding properties of polyurethane foam allow for effective control over the lifting process. This means the foam can be carefully manipulated to lift the foundation to the desired level, offering excellent results in terms of restoring and improving foundation stability.
Polyurethane foam is highly resistant to water. This means it will not wash away or degrade over time, even in areas prone to significant moisture or water flow. This makes it a durable solution for foundation repair.
Minimal Impact on the Slab and/or Floor Covering
Given the small size of the injection holes (usually about 5/8 inch), there is minimal impact on your slab and/or floor covering during the process. The holes are filled after the procedure, leaving minimum trace of the repair work.
High-quality polyurethane foams used in foundation repair are typically environmentally friendly. They do not contain harmful chemicals that could potentially seep into the surrounding soil, making it an environmentally friendly choice for foundation repair.
