Porch Lifted with PolyRenewal
Thursday, April 2nd, 2015
This rural Triad homeowner’s large, concrete front porch that was laid in the mid 1990’s had settled (2) two inches and was becoming a safety hazard. They were concerned with someone getting seriously injured, so they called Tar Heel Basement Systems to fix the problem and lift the slab. They were looking for a fix that would not disrupt or tear apart the porch.
System Design Specialist, Danny Harrell, completed a full assessment of the sinking porch and designed a plan that would meet the homeowner’s needs and wants.
The PolyRenewal team began the lift process by drilling 5/8 inch (penny sized) holes in the slab for minimal disruption of their concrete. They began to inject the structural grade polymer foam into the holes to fill any voids and offer an accurate lift. The poly foam is waterproof and will never wash out and has a quick cure time of only 15 minutes. The holes were then grouted and sealed, leaving the slab completely restored and looking like new. This Yadkinville, NC homeowner is very excited to have a level front porch, thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems.
