THE LIFT THAT LASTS
Step confidently with our concrete patio leveling services. High-density polyurethane foam ensures even, stable patios.
Patios may experience sinking issues due to a variety of factors, including soil erosion, inadequate compaction during installation, fluctuations in moisture levels, the influence of tree roots, poor drainage, and the impact of freeze-thaw cycles in colder climates. Soil erosion and poor compaction create voids beneath the patio, leading to settling. Midwest Foam Works addresses these issues using a technique called polyurethane foam injection. Offering a minimally invasive and cost-effective approach, polyurethane foam injection ensures stability and prevents future settling, making it a practical choice for patio concrete leveling.
We offer a 3-year warranty. Our foam will never deteriorate, crumble, or otherwise degrade. It is impervious to water, rodents, and various environmental factors, making it a dependable solution for concrete repair. If any issues arise within the 3-year warranty period, we will address them, ensuring customers' confidence in the longevity of their repairs.
Polyjacking emerges as a highly effective, efficient and affordable solution for patio leveling. This innovative process involves injecting high-density polyurethane foam beneath the settled concrete through small drilled holes. Notable advantages include its minimally invasive nature, preserving the patio's appearance and quick completion, allowing homeowners to use their patio shortly after the repair. The precise and controlled lift ensures accuracy in addressing settling issues, resulting in a leveled and even surface. Polyurethane foam's lightweight yet durable properties provide long-term stability without adding excessive weight. Additionally, its resistance to moisture makes it suitable for outdoor environments, and the environmentally friendly process minimizes waste. Overall, polyjacking proves to be a cost-effective, durable, and sustainable solution for restoring the integrity of sinking or uneven patios.

Our two-part polyurethane foam is injected through 5/8" holes drilled through your concrete slab. At this point, the polyurethane is a two-part liquid which easily flows and seeks out voids, much like water seeking the path of least resistance.
After 10-15 seconds, the polyurethane mixture starts to expand. This expansion fills any voids, drives out moisture, and compacts the remaining base. Once the area is stabilized, our technician strategically continues to inject polyurethane until your concrete is lifted back to its original postition.
Holes are patched, the work is tidied, and your concrete is ready to drive on within 20 minutes!

Absolutely, foamjacking provides a long-lasting solution for concrete lifting and leveling. Our foam is impervious to water, chemicals, insects, rodents or erosion and as long as the substrate continues to perform the polyurethane will last indeönitely. Our estimator and technician will make suggestions as to how to maintain your repair as well as the other concrete surfaces around your home.
Yes, polyurethane foam used for concrete lifting is eco-friendly and safe for both humans and the environment. It is non-toxic and free from harmful substances, making it a responsible choice for concrete leveling.
While foamjacking is highly effective for most concrete leveling needs, there may be instances where extensive structural damage or irreparable concrete requires alternative solutions. In such cases, we will assess and recommend the best course of action.
The foam is very strong and has a rating of 75-80 PSI. Meaning a cubic inch of foam can hold up 75-80 lbs of weight. But it’s really the expansion process that lifts the concrete. The high PSI ensures the lift will last. Even the heaviest load is no match for our high-density foam.
With over 1500 jobs under our technicians’ belts, there’s no need to worry about over-lifting. In addition, the injection process is done slowly and methodically. A few inches of lift can take several minutes and numerous injections. Each injection takes only 10-15 seconds to fully expand and additional injections are made in 20-25 second intervals allowing time for maximum expansion before the next injection is made. In other words, the foam is injected slowly and methodically to avoid an over lift.
Your repair will typically take anywhere from a few hours to a day, depending of course on the amount of concrete being repaired. Your concrete is ready to use again as soon as our team drives away!
No. Our truck and trailer is parked in the street or your driveway and a light weight, exible hose is pulled to the affected area where the lift is needed. The foam is applied through holes drilled in the surface of the concrete and not from the side, so none of your landscaping is disturbed in the process.
Foamjacking offers several advantages over mudjacking for concrete lifting and leveling, but these are the top 3 reasons:
1) Polyurethane Foam is Longer Lasting: Our foam is impervious to water and erosion, and will not deteriorate over time. Limestone slurry can be susceptible to erosion and deterioration over time when exposed to water and weather conditions.
2) Strength and Lightweight Nature of Polyurethane Foam: Polyurethane foam used in foam lifting is lightweight yet incredibly strong. In contrast, limestone slurry is heavy, adding additional weight to an already compromised base.
3) Precision and Control: Polyurethane foam lifting offers precise and controlled lifting due to its expansive properties. Foam injection can be carefully controlled, allowing for accurate leveling adjustments and minimizing the risk of over-lifting. Limestone slurry, on the other hand, might not provide the same level of precision, potentially resulting in uneven lifting or further damage, especially around pools and slabs pinned next to your foundation.
No, foamjacking is a relatively quiet and non-disruptive process compared to some other construction activities. We prioritize minimizing any inconveniences for our customers and their neighbors during the concrete lifting process.
