Foam Jacking Concrete Lifting Services
Polyurethane foam, also known as foam jacking, is a cost effective and permanent solution for lifting concrete from sidewalks to slabs. Interwest concrete repair and foam jacking system effectively extends the life of the concrete at a fraction of the cost of concrete replacement.
Interwest experts have been using a specially formulated slurry mixture, that has been specifically designed for Utah’s elements, successfully for years. This cement-based slurry is pumped below concrete through a series of small holes drilled into the slab needing to be lifted. The consistency of the mixture is key and is designed to smoothly fill every void and strengthen any weak point. The pressurized grout will then lift the slab into place, providing long term support and preventing future damage.

Mudjacking vs. Foam Jacking
When you are dealing with cracked and settling concrete, there are typically two ways to lift and repair the problem. Mudjacking and polyurethane concrete lifting methods achieve similar results, however, the process and cost of the two products varies. Mudjacking, also known as slabjacking, lifts a slab back to its original position by pumping a mixture of sand, cement, fly ash, and other additives into strategically placed holes.
Polyurethane foam is an environmentally friendly two part mixture that is injected through penny size holes drilled in the affected area. Although mudjacking is a common concrete lifting method, polyurethane foam is a cost-effective, expedient and less disruptive alternative.
There are many advantages to foam jacking as compared to other methods of concrete repair, such as slab jacking, grinding and replacement. Some of the many advantages of polyurethane foam concrete repair includes faster drying time, cost effective, environmentally friendly, fewer injection sites and durability.
