One slab had cracked in the middle and sank almost half an inch.
To ensure a proper lift with the PolyRenewal the team lifts the slab slightly with a slab jack.
Small holes are then drilled into the slab for the PolyRenewal foam to be installed.
The PolyRenewal foam is inserted using a polygun that shoots the foam very slowly under the slab for a correct lift.
The slab has now been lifted and the crack has been sealed.
This Dobson, NC home had a beautifully landscaped yard and detailed home. The homeowners had their dream home constructed in 1976 and were completing a full remodel of the home and property. One of the eyesores that was sticking out was the sunken sidewalk that was becoming a safety hazard. The sidewalk repair was the last step needed in order to finish the exterior home renovation.
System Design Specialist, Mark Silcott, sat down with the homeowners and designed a plan that would lift the settled sidewalk with no major disruption to the beautiful yard.
The PolyRenewal Team began by drilling small 5/8” holes in each slab to inject the high-density polyurethane foam under the slab. Unlike, traditional mudjacking, PolyRenewal is very light weight and warrantied. After the foam has been injected, each hole is grouted and sealed. This homeowner is very excited to have an even sidewalk that looks like new thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!
