THE LIFT THAT LASTS
We level your sidewalk concrete using high-density polyurethane foam. Fix uneven sidewalks affordably and permanently.
Sidewalks may sink and become uneven due to various factors, including soil erosion, tree roots, poor construction practices, changes in moisture levels, freeze-thaw cycles, and disruptions from underground utility work. To address these issues, innovative solutions like polyurethane foam injection have emerged. Midwest Foam Works in Wichita, Kansas utilizes this method which involves injecting high-density foam beneath settled concrete, filling voids, and efficiently lifting the concrete back into place. Regular inspections and timely repairs are essential to ensure the safety and longevity of sidewalks in communities.
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.
Polyurethane foam offers a minimally invasive and efficient solution for leveling sidewalks. The concrete jacking process involves injecting foam beneath the settled surface through small drilled holes, minimizing disruption and avoiding extensive excavation. The quick and efficient nature of polyurethane foam injection ensures sidewalks can be back in use within a few hours. Additionally, the lightweight yet durable properties of polyurethane foam provide structural support without adding significant weight to the sidewalk. This innovative method stands out for its speed, effectiveness, and the minimal impact it has on the surrounding environment, offering a practical and long-lasting solution for sidewalk concrete leveling.

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.
