Advantages of PolyRenewal™ for commercial use
PolyRenewal is a state-of-the-art alternative to mudjacking, re-leveling grout or concrete replacement. The polyurethane foam system offers numerous features and benefits:
- Lightweight – Our polyurethane foam weighs approximately 4-6 pounds per cubic foot when installed, in comparison to traditional mortar-based material which weighs 120 pounds per cubic foot.
- High capacity – Lifting action is a result of the expansion of the polymer, allowing for lifting of a much higher load than traditional mudjacking, which relies on hydraulic pressure being contained under a slab.
- Accurate lift – Calculated reaction time of the expanding polyurethane foam allows for targeted, precise lifting of the slab.
- Waterproof – Polyurethane formula is fully waterproof, so it won’t wash out, won’t be impacted by freeze/thaw cycles and can be used to under-seal slabs and stop a variety of infrastructure leaks.
- Non-invasive – PolyRenewal equipment can be used in extremely limited access areas and won’t disturb lawn or landscape.
- Quick cure time – Within just 15 minutes after injection, the concrete slab is ready for heavy loading; compared to conventional mudjacking which takes several days to cure.
- Environmentally-friendly – With PolyRenewal there’s no need to demolish the concrete and transport the waste to a landfill.
Frequently Asked Questions About Commercial PolyRenewal™ Concrete Lifting
Commercial and residential concrete lifting share a similar base desire—they’re both an attempt to lift sunken concrete, making it healthier. However, some extremely important elements set them apart.
- More Foot Traffic
More often than not, a commercial area is going to have more foot traffic over concrete areas than a residential area will. For example, if you own a museum, you’re going to have people walking over most concrete areas in your museum, which will certainly dwarf the number of people who walk over concrete areas in a residential location.
In a residential location, you may be able to divert traffic away from a specific concrete area fairly easily. You might even be able to do it for a long period, if necessary. However, when it comes to a commercial area, you’re going to be unable to divert traffic for a long time. That means you need a fast-acting method of fixing concrete.
- More Likely to Sustain Significant Pressure
When you have a commercial location, you’re more likely to have a lot of weight going over certain areas. For example, on a residential sidewalk, it’s unlikely that you’ll have a car driving over the sidewalk area. On a commercial sidewalk, that may be much more likely. Plus, commercial areas are more likely to have commercial-sized vehicles driving across them regularly.
You need a method of concrete management that’s strong enough to handle that pressure. If you opt for a method of concrete lifting that doesn’t have the efficacy you’re looking for, you’re going to notice it quickly. Instead, you need a concrete lifting method that’s rated for commercial use.
Traditional concrete lifting tactics, sometimes called “mudjacking,” are much less effective than polyurethane foam injections. These traditional tactics typically take multiple days to cure, may not fill the underside of the concrete entirely, and are extremely heavy. On the other hand, PolyRenewal™ is lightweight, accurate, and quick to cure.
There are several situations that you can use PolyRenewal™ for. When you’re having concrete slab issues, PolyRenewal™ could be a great option that helps you lift your concrete slab while also maintaining the function of your commercial area.
- Interior Slab Lifting
Are there concrete slabs in your commercial location that have dips and uneven elements? If so, you may want to look at interior slab lifting. This is extremely important because most businesses take even more pride in their interior than in their exterior. Interior slab lifting allows you to make sure the inside of your commercial location maintains the same beauty as the outside.
The process of interior slab lifting is something that you might need to seriously consider for your commercial area. Even if your uneven floors aren’t indicative of a foundation problem, they can be a huge tripping and falling hazard. It’s best to fix it as quickly as you can.
- Sidewalk Repair
The sidewalk around your commercial location may need repair at some point as well. Sidewalks sustain a lot of traffic, which means that they are likely to have some sort of sinking problems eventually. Sidewalk repair is a great way to utilize polyurethane foam injections, especially because you only have to reroute traffic from the sidewalk for a short time. If your commercial location has a driveway or a parking area, you might want to look into concrete driveway repair. Driveways can benefit tremendously from polyurethane foam injections. The strength of polyurethane foam injections and the fact that they set in such a short time make them extremely valuable to commercial locations.
As the owner of a commercial area, you know better than anyone how important it is to think about your usage of different tools to maintain that area. Here’s how you can maximize the usage of polyurethane foam injections in your commercial location.
- Know Your Problem Areas
One of the most important things you need to do is know what’s going on in your commercial area in the first place. How are you supposed to know that you need PolyRenewal™ in your commercial area if you’ve never taken a close look at the concrete in the area? This is something you actively need to pay attention to.
Staying on the lookout for warning signs of concrete sinking is important. Especially if you have an expanse of concrete around your commercial area, it might be worth it to have someone go around the concrete once per week to look for sinking concrete slabs. That way, you’ll be able to catch any concrete problems like sinking early on.
- Get an Expert’s Help
Once you know you need help, talk to an expert about getting it. This isn’t something you can DIY or manage on your own. You must get a concrete repair expert out to your business to help you with your concrete lifting concerns. Otherwise, these concerns are just going to keep developing into something even more serious. There are many ways an expert may be able to help you with your concrete problems, whether you’re having them in a residential area or a commercial one. You can schedule an inspection with Complete Basement Systems for your commercial area to ensure that you’re able to lift the concrete you’re having a problem with.
