Polyurethane Foam Injection: The Best Way to Fix your Sunken Concrete
SUPER STRONG! Polyurethane cures as an inert, impermeable polymer that will not shrink, breakdown or wash away.
LIGHTWEIGHT! Polyurethane weighs about 30x less than mudjacking material, which reduces unwanted weight to an already failing substrate.
STABILIZATION! Since polyurethane is injected as a liquid it is extremely effective at filling open voids, and solidifying and stabilizing loose soils.
LESS INVASIVE! The polyurethane injection process uses penny-size holes making our work barely noticeable.
IT’S FAST! Polyurethane cures extremely fast which means you can go back to using your concrete right after we leave.
Level. Protect. Save!

Why Sunken & Sinking Concrete is Common in Arlington Heights
Like many suburbs, the returning GI’s, growth of the automobile and construction of major highways contributed to the tremendous growth and expansion of Arlington Heights. Homebuilders and business moving away from the city from the 1950s to the 1990s turned Arlington Heights from a farming community to an expansive suburb.
With quick and affordable construction come quality issues such as poorly constructed bases. With so many track homes around the village, it’s common for homeowners in the area to request our services to raise sunken concrete walkways, driveways, patios and garage floors as well as joint, crack and concrete sealing services. Also, many of the residential developments were built over wetlands that contain clay-rich soils that are susceptible to settling over time, which further increases demand for concrete repair services.
Concrete Replacement vs. Raising
We decided to offer concrete raising services to the Arlington Heights area because we knew there was a better way to repair and restore concrete slabs that have sunk due to a failed base. Many of our customers were spending money replacing structurally sound concrete that just needed to be raised. After three years of research, we decided to offer our customers the most effective alternative to replacement which is to use polyurethane to raise and level sunken slabs. Below are the reasons why concrete raising may be a better choice for repairing sunken concrete.
- Extremely Cost Efftive: Raising concrete is normally around 50% to 70% less than having it replaced!
- Faster: Our raising process can be completed in 30-60minutes compared to days with replacement.
- Easier: No need for permits, inspections, and all the noise, dust and other things that are part of the concrete construction.
- Greener: If are trying to do your part to minimize your environmental footprint, then raising your concrete rather than replacing it is one way to do it.
Of course, not all concrete can be raised. If there are many structural cracks than replacement might be the only option. Set-up a free estimate and evaluation to learn which option is best for you!

The Advanced Alternative to Mudjacking or Replacement
Our repair process for raising and leveling sunken concrete is the most effective method available. Traditionally, mudjacking has been the only way to raise sunken concrete. While this method does work, it has never been viewed as a perfect solution. Concrete Hero raises concrete using high-density polyurethane injections, known as PolyLifting. This process has been used for many years in heavy highway applications, today reputable contractors such Concrete Hero are using it for residential and commercial applications because of its lightweight, strength, and durability. If your Arlington Heights home or business has sunken concrete in need of raising and leveling, give us a call for a free estimate on a permanent solution.
