Modern concrete raising has gone from my messy, muddy operation to one that is relatively quick, sanitary and cost-effective. Still, many common construction tools are used in addition to state-of-the-art metering and pumping equipment. So what are the tools and what are they used for?

Hammer drill – used to drill 5/8″ holes for the injection ports as a means to get material under the slab.

Concrete saw – used to separate concrete slabs to reduce binding and slab breakage.

Ports – are plastic or metal valves placed in the concrete they allow material to be injected under the slab.

Impingement gun – injection gun that mixes two materials as it places material under the concrete.

Resin and isocyanate – materials that combine to form polyurethane foam used in Slabjacking.

Other small tools include heavy-duty jacks when needed, pry bars, tools to clean out ports, dial gauges, levels, hammers, sockets and more.

Trailer or truck mounted equipment includes generators, air compressors, pumping equipment and hoses to get to where the settled concrete is and sufficient storage for material used in the process.
