Concrete leveling in Lombard, Illinois includes a variety of services such as lifting concrete slabs, patios, sidewalks, and driveways. This is done using a process called polyjacking which uses polyurethane foam. It’s a non-toxic technique that is faster and more durable than other concrete leveling solutions like mudjacking.

Why Does Concrete Settle?

Various factors, including inadequate compaction, drainage, unfavorable site conditions, and tree roots, can cause concrete to settle. Concrete settling is most frequently caused by rainwater and gutter water washing debris out from under your driveway or sidewalk. Due to the voids or pockets formed beneath it, your concrete consequently settles.

Another factor is clay-rich soil, which varies in size due to moisture content. This soil expands when it is wet and contracts when it is dry. The change in moisture content makes the earth unstable, which causes the concrete to move and sink.

Concrete Leveling Using Polyjacking

Concrete must be supported by soil that is as sturdy as the concrete structure itself. If that does not happen, it may be unable to support the weight. In a nutshell, the slab cannot be replaced if weak soil is the problem.

Poly Jacking Process

The polyjacking process includes:

Sidewalk lifting foam process

Step 1: Dime-sized holes are drilled in the sunken concrete surface.

Step 2: Polyurethane foam is injected underneath the surface through the hole.

Step 3: The foam beneath the concrete expands, lifting the slab.  

Due to the inorganic nature of the polyurethane foam used in polyjacking, it does not decompose or dissolve over time. Consequently, the polyjacking technique provides a dependable and useful solution for sinking concrete.

The Benefits of Polyjacking​

Quick Action

Just 15 minutes after the foam injection, you can walk over the concrete slab. The slab is strong and can accommodate vehicles as well.

Minimally invasive

The process is not invasive for property owners as it does not involve any major construction or excavation.


The foam is made up of lightweight polyurethane which is made up of lightweight, sustainable materials. In contrast to other techniques like mudjacking, which uses heavy materials, it doesn't cause any future soil settlements.


The foam used for polyjacking does not leak which helps prevent dangerous substances from seeping into the ground.


Owners can easily save up to half of the traditional concrete slab replacement costs if they opt for concrete leveling by polyjacking.


Polyurethane foam does not get damaged by water after it's been settled. It is waterproof and strong.
