Why Is Grout Injection a Better Method Than Foam Lifting To Fix Concrete?

Both grout injection and foam lifting are methods for lifting sunken concrete slabs. However, the choice between the two methods depends on the specific situation and the preferences of the homeowner and contractor.

Grout injection involves injecting a mixture of cement, water, and other materials beneath the sunken slab to raise it back to its original position. This method has been used for decades and is a proven technique for repairing concrete slabs. Some advantages of grout injection over foam lifting include:

Cost: Grout injection is often less expensive than foam lifting, as it requires fewer materials and is a simpler process.

Durability: Grout injection is known for creating a strong and durable base beneath the slab. The grout mixture hardens and sets into place, providing a long-lasting solution to the sinking problem.

Precision: Grout injection allows for precise control over the lifting process, which can be important for ensuring the slab is raised to the correct height and stays level.

All Time Concrete Lifting uses grout that’s mixed on site. We mix our material to the mix we need it to flow correctly beneath the slab, which depends on space beneath the concrete slab. This method is better than foam because foam piles up while our material flows beneath the slab before it raises concrete.
