What are the differences in concrete raising geo-polymers?

There are numerous Polymers on the market, some are very light weight, as light as 1/2lb per cubic foot and are typically used for insulation.  Other insulation foams can run as high as 2lbs per cubic foot, neither type of insulation foam provides satisfactory results for Slabjacking or Concrete Raising, though some spray foam contractors and ‘fly by night’ Slabjack Contractors may try to convince you otherwise.

Most of the general purpose lifting foams are in the range of 2-3.5lbs per cubic foot and are acceptable for walks, drives etc…

The better Geo-Polymers are even more dense and can support many thousands of pounds per square foot.  This is important, many times entry porches are poured solid and what may look like a simple six by six porch with two steps can weigh in excess of five tons and hold three cubic yards of concrete.

The best polymers are in excess of 3.5lbs per cubic foot and are fully hydrophobic, this means they are not effected by water, will set up completely in saturated soils and are impervious to pests, deterioration and compression.

Sadly, the majority of Slabjackers using this technology are using a very lightweight general purpose polymer, typically two pounds per cubic foot. While this is adequate for walks, we feel it is not up to the task of thick entry patios with large brick columns and/or super structures build on top of the slab.

1-855-752-2522 uses what we believe is the finest Polymer on the market today, RR401G. This fully Hydrophobic Polymer, weighs 4lb per cubic foot and is D.O.T. (Department of Transportation) approved, having undergone the rigorous approval process and is even tinted to match concrete.  For an interesting video go to our web site www.SlabjackGeotechnical.com and view the RR401g foam demonstration video posted there.  You will see something no wall foam or cheap substitute can do.  As a side benefit it is made of recycled plastic bottles, and is currently undergoing “green” certification.

Only by combining state of the art machinery, the finest Geo-Polymers, and a staff trained exclusively in Slabjacking, can superior results be expected. Slabjack Geotechnical is that company in Washington State and Northern Idaho.

Facility Managers need engineered solutions to meet the ever changing challenges that come with managing properties.

1-855-752-2522 provides long term solutions for Warehouse Managers, commercial office buildings, and multi family apartment complexes.

Problem; Bluebird growers in Peshastin, Washington, a fruit packer and Controlled Atmosphere fruit storage company, has a pressurized cold storage, zero oxygen cooler that has a section of settled floor. In this room, large fruit bins are stacked to a height of nearly twenty five feet for long term storage. The settled section of the floor, measuring roughly 400 square feet had settled two to three inches in the center causing the bins to lean dangerously. A fall could be catastrophic, damaging fruit, equipment and potentially injuring workers.
-Solution – 1-855-752-2522 was called, after taking measurements and pulling several level lines across the settled section, holes were drilled in a grid pattern and expanding geo-polymer was injected beneath the concrete, solidifying loose soils and gently raising the thick reinforced slabs back to grade.

Problem; Cambridge Management, a property Management firm in Washington State had numerous A.D.A. or Americans with Disabilities Act deficiencies at three multi family properties prior to Federal inspections.
-Solution – 1-855-752-2522 was called, after extensive inspection a range of corrective measures were implemented. Geo-polymer Slabjacking, Concrete Grinding and Concrete Demolition and removal were all completed on time and within budget. Federal inspections at all three properties passed without a single deficiency.

If you have a facility that cannot be “down” Slabjack Geotechnical is the simple choice. We schedule around your operation, can often work while you are open and with our state of the art equipment and hydro insensitive polymers, provide lasting solutions that meet the demands of business today.

When choosing a concrete raising contractor what should you look for?

Experience – concrete raising is as much art as science and therefore it is not just a simple mathematical formula. Voids, slab position in relation to adjoining slabs, thickness of slabs, attached structures and more play a part in concrete raising. 1-855-752-2522 has raised thousands of slabs in a multitude of situations so we know what to do with your unique situation.

Integrity – we stand behind our work and warrant our repairs, even beyond what appears on our contract. If your concrete needs replacement you can guarantee we will not try to sell you a repair. If we can’t raise it for any reason there is never a charge.

Passion – We love what we do. We really have a great time on the job, raising concrete and making it look like it used to. We love the outdoors, working in the Cascades in the West of the state to Spokane and Norther Idaho in the East, from Yakima to Tri-Cities and Walla Walla. We enjoy dealing with our clients one on one in a way that solves their individual problems.

Cost – while we use state of the art equipment and the latest generation hydrophobic geo-polymers you will find that we are very competitive in the markets we serve. Compared to concrete replacement, we are often 1/4 to 1/2 the cost. In addition we use the latest software to estimate jobs. While no software can anticipate thickness of concrete or voids, it is comforting to know that we are not pulling numbers out of the air like some contractors do. Our estimates are based on the calculated amount of geo-polymer needed to raise your concrete back to grade and not on how much we can charge.

Quality – a lot has changed since the 1920’s Today’s materials and methods are far superior to yesterday’s materials and methods. 1-855-752-2522 uses state of the art equipment with electronic monitoring, materials that are fully hydrophobic and will under seal your concrete and not wash away with the next rain and employee training to insure only qualified technicians are on site.

Give us a call, we will come out, evaluate your concrete and provide a no cost, no pressure estimate to have your settled concrete raised back to level for a fraction the cost of new.

The cost of doing nothing

Because concrete replacement is so costly, many business and home owners simply ignore or hope no one will trip on their settled concrete. Unfortunately in today’s litigious society doing nothing can be very, very costly. According to the National Floor Safety Institute, the average cost to defend against a slip/trip fall claim is $50,000 and the average jury award is $100,000. In addition to others, we ourselves and family members can trip on our own settled concrete. As we age things get more brittle. Broken wrists, broken teeth, hips and ribs have all resulted from trip falls over settled concrete.

The A.D.A. or Americans with Disabilities Act, requires any trip hazard over 1/4″ to be eliminated.

1-855-752-2522 can raise a settled 10×10 concrete slab settled 1″ on one end for about $300. We do ADA compliance for municipalities, commercial establishments and multi family housing complexes.

Give is a call today for a no cost, no pressure estimate to eliminate your trip hazards.
