Concrete is the most popular material to use for driveways. However, due to poor soil conditions or drainage problems, it can often become unsettled and look visually unappealing. If left in that state, it could cause accidents not just for you, but for others as well. As a result, it’s a good idea to learn about polyurethane driveway leveling. This article will provide more detail.
Traditional Driveway Leveling
The most common albeit dated method of filling and levelling a driveway involves pumping a mixture of water, soil and concrete to fill voids. The concrete can take up to 24 hours to settle, meaning you’ll need to wait a long time before you can use your driveway again. If you disturb the concrete as it settles, then you may end up with an uneven surface that needs to be re-levelled again.
Polyurethane Driveway Leveling
In comparison, polyurethane foam, or PolyLift, uses a foam material that is injected underneath a sunken slab of concrete. The foam causes a reaction that expands the foam, hardening it within minutes and lifting the slab to fill any voids. The foam is waterproof and doesn’t break down under normal conditions, meaning it helps to level your driveway and keep it that way.
It’s an environmentally-friendly and affordable way to level a driveway without the need for future maintenance. It will protect not just your driveway, but also ensure that the foundation of your home is protected from issues like poor drainage and excess water flow.
