The Concrete Doctors use polyurethane foam injection to stabilize the ground as well as testing the soil that has shifted, although this comes at an additional cost. It is essential to understand the problem and address it accordingly. The polymaterial does not rot over time and will stop this issue from degrading.

POLYLIFTING VS TRADITIONAL MUDJACKING
What are the differences between Mud Jacking/ Concrete Leveling and Polyurethane Concrete Raising?
Basically, cost!! Both methods achieve similar results. The raise and support sunken or un even concrete pumping either material under the slab.
Concrete Settling is commonly due to poor soil and water erosion conditions below a slab. Polyurethane lifting is now trendy repair method because the material is so lightweight and expands to fill the void for support.
Mud Jacking uses a sand and clay based material that is generally infused with Portland cement to provide rigidity for holding up sunk or sinking concrete. This slurry is pumped under the slab to fill voids and raise the concrete. Mud Jacking material will weigh more than the poly product and act like a light duty concrete mixer.
Polyurethane Concrete Raising injects foam under the slab that swells. When the mixture of chemicals is pumped into the void,a reaction causes the material to inflate. This expanded foam fills any voids and begins to raise the concrete.
Both methods will leave holes in the concrete. While the poly holes are smaller, the traditional Mud Jacking holes are both repaired to leave minimal appearance.
Concrete raising can be half the total cost of a total replacement. When voids are present, this can increase the costs. Polyurethane lifting is more expensive than Mud Jacking material and has its disadvantages.
