  • Adjustable for loads of all sizes

How PolyRenewal™ Works

The causes of concrete settlement and sinking are the same whether it’s a driveway, walkway, patio, garage floor, or pool deck. As soil underneath a concrete slab shrinks, settles or washes away, this leaves empty space, or voids, beneath the slab. With the soil no longer supporting the slab, the concrete will sink, creating an uneven surface.

PolyRenewal uses a high-density polyurethane foam to fill voids and stabilize and lift sinking concrete slabs. The expanding properties of the two-part urethane formula allows for the accurate lifting of the slab. The result is a waterproof repair that’s much more permanent than mudjacking and other common concrete repair methods.

  • Small 5/8” holes are strategically drilled in the slab.
  • Injection ports are installed.
  • Polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete to fill voids and raise the slab.
  • Holes and control joints are sealed.

PolyRenewal™ Applications

Ohio Basement Systems has the expertise and equipment to quickly raise many types of slab-on-grade concrete, so you can use those areas around your home without worry.

If you have a driveway that’s sunken or uneven, replacing it might not be the most cost-effective option. We can use PolyRenewal to raise the concrete, creating an even surface and preventing further sinking and cracking. Our driveway lifting process can eliminate unsafe conditions and improve the curb appeal of your home. The life of your driveway will also be extended for years without the need for replacement.

Sidewalks & Walkways

An uneven sidewalk not only looks bad, but it creates a tripping hazard. If the concrete slab is still intact, don’t waste your money on replacing the concrete. With PolyRenewal, we can raise your sunken sidewalk, allowing you to walk on the sidewalk within an hour. Our sidewalk lifting process saves you time and money.

Patios, Porches & Landings

You shouldn’t have to worry about tripping on uneven concrete when relaxing on your patio. You might also notice your table and chairs wobbling because of uneven concrete. Concrete lifting can eliminate these issues and provide a safe, even surface.

Concrete Floors & Slab Foundations

If your home has sloped floors, cracks in floor tiles, gaps below baseboards, gaps at the tops of walls or sticking doors, you might have a concrete settlement problem. Our use of polyurethane foam for concrete floor lifting is a long-lasting alternative to self-lifting treatments.

Concrete Pool Decks

Has your concrete pool deck seen better days? Worried about the cracked, uneven deck causing tripping hazards? PolyRenewal™ can raise your concrete pool deck back to its original position and help restore your backyard pool area into the oasis it once was.

Traditional Concrete Lifting vs PolyRenewal™

Before PolyRenewal™, there were two basic options for lifting concrete: mudjacking and slab replacement. Both approaches have limitations and disadvantages. PolyRenewal™ offers many advantages over traditional concrete lifting methods:


Foam Injection
Mudjacking or Slabjacking
Cure Time15 minutes24 hours or more
Material Weight2 lbs per cubic foot100 lbs per cubic foot
Hole Size5/8″ (size of a penny)1″ (size of a quarter)

Concrete Replacement

Replacing a concrete slab is both expensive and disruptive. Concrete slabs can take days – or even weeks – to cure. Pouring new concrete over bad soil often delays future problems and leaves unsightly patchwork. PolyRenewal material is lightweight, so it won’t add weight to weak soil. Best of all, PolyRenewal allows for use of concrete within hours, not weeks.
