How much does concrete lifting cost?
Concrete lifting or raising is typically about half the cost of replacement. However, the savings may be even greater with concrete lifting since the costs of demolition, removal, and landscaping repairs are eliminated.
Ultimately, the cost of lifting concrete is a direct reflection of the amount of materials needed and the size of the project. Depending on how far the slab is settled, if there are voids present, or if other sections need to be involved in the repair, each of these factors will determine the cost. This is why LiftCon offers free, no obligation estimates. Our professional estimator will look at your project and provide you with an accurate estimate of what your project will cost.
How many holes will there be?
Small, dime-sized holes are strategically drilled every 3-7 feet in the settled area. Smaller and fewer holes are needed with polyurethane vs. large insightly (1 1/2″ – 2″) holes needed for mudjacking.
Access holes are necessary to lift slabs in order to get at the voids underneath, and cannot be avoided. The holes are so small, however, that we will leave you with a virtually invisible repair.
What kind of material do you use?
Polyurethane is injected as a liquid that sets up as a high density, rigid foam. This foam will never lose denisty or shrink.
What is the difference between polyurethane and grout mudjacking?

What can be raised?
How do you fill the holes?
The holes will be filled, or patched, with regular cement to match your existing.
Will there be heavy trucks on my lawn?
A polyurethane concrete lifting trailer will be parked on the street or driveway. A hose from the trailer will be brought to the site, eliminating the need for driving equipment or trucks on your lawn.
How long will it take to get my work done?
Most projects will typically take just a few hours.
Will there be any maintenance needed of the repaired site?
Once the work is completed, it is the home owner’s responsibility to caulk the seams of the section(s) that were repaired, or backfill against any exposed areas to contain the material and prevent future settling. Preventing water from going under the slab is a key action to preserving the repaired slab. Taking these suggested steps for preserving your raised concrete is a condition of your LiftCon Warranty.
How long before I can use my repaired concrete?
Polyurethane cures in minutes. This high density foam is fully cured and ready to return to your area of service in 15 minutes. You can use your concrete again by the time we finish your project.
Is it safe for the environment?
This is a green product. The polyurethane is made with recycled materials.
Can you raise stamped concrete?
Liftcon’s state of the art method is perfect for raising stamped concrete. Because the polyurethane is injected as a liquid under high pressure, we can use fewer and smaller holes (5/8 inch, dime size). We use colorant in the cement to fill the holes in your stamped concrete which leaves them nearly invisible.
