The foamjacking process can repair your cracked or sunken concrete, leaving you with a stable and even surface.
And, once the job is finished, you’ll barely be able to tell any work was done – aside from noticing that your concrete slab is smooth, level and free of damage, of course.
And that’s why foamjacking is the preferred concrete repair method for homeowners who want a nearly invisible fix for damaged sidewalks, driveways, patios, steps and other outdoor concrete areas.
Foamjacking Concrete Repair is Minimally Invasive
First of all, if you opt for foamjacking, you don’t have to worry about the repair crew and equipment destroying your lawn or landscaping.
The truck containing the foamjacking mixture will be parked on the street. If the damaged slab is located at the rear of your property or far away from the street, the crew simply adds additional lengths of hosing to reach the spot. No one will ever need to drive or park on your lawn. And, when running the hosing, the foamjacking repair crew will take special care to avoid your plants and flowers.
The foamjacking process itself is also minimally invasive. To complete the repair, the crew simply drills a few half-inch holes in your concrete slab. These tiny holes have little effect on the look of the slab, but they’re plenty large enough to complete the concrete repair job.
Caulking After Foamjacking Covers Evidence of Concrete Repair
After the foamjacking mixture has been pumped through the holes, your slab will be stabilized and the surface will be safe to walk on. But, though the cracks will be closed, they’ll still be visible. And, if you look, you’ll be able to see the holes that were drilled.
Caulking is the simple solution to this problem. Homeowners can tackle this part of the concrete repair themselves, but many prefer to leave the task to their experienced, professional foamjacking contractor.
Caulk can be closely color-matched to the shade of the concrete slab, leaving barely noticeable evidence of the repair.
Why Foamjacking Concrete Repair is Better than Slab Replacement
In the minds of many homeowners, tearing out the damaged concrete slab and pouring a new one is the best way to achieve repairs that don’t stick out like a sore thumb.
In fact, just the opposite is true. When replacing an entire slab, matching the color of the nearby concrete is essential – and extremely difficult. In many cases, the new slab ends up being a slightly off color, just different enough to draw attention.
With foamjacking repair, all that can be seen are the lines of caulk. And, unless you’re up close and squinting, those are nearly imperceptible. From a distance, no one will be able to tell you ever had a damaged concrete slab.
