Concrete Lifting Calgary

 

You’re probably here for one of two or three reasons: your concrete has settled, is not level, or presents a tripping hazard. This can be very frustrating. Whatever your issue is, you can rely on Concrete Experts as your professional partner to help you choose the best option. We can lift any concrete: driveways, garages, sidewalks, and patios!

What are the options?

Remove and Replace: While there are times when concrete needs to be torn out and completely replaced, this is not always the most economical or environmentally friendly option. This involves demolition and disposal of the existing concrete, levelling of sub-surface, and the pouring of new concrete. Don’t let anyone sell you on concrete replacement until you’ve gotten an evaluation from Concrete Experts! We have the expertise and will be mindful of your budget. Learn more…

Cement Grout (Mudjacking): In the past, this was the most common method for raising and levelling concrete. This involves injecting a sand-based grout under the sunken concrete. Strategically placed holes (as large as 2 inches and 2-3 feet apart) are drilled into the concrete to allow for the pumping of the grout mixture. The grout is heavy, and can cause further soil settling in the future. Learn more…

Polyurethane Foam: Polyurethane foam is one of the most advanced techniques for raising and levelling concrete, and it’s also one of our specialties. It is 1/50th the weight of grout, and can support the weight of a vehicle in less than an hour. The holes drilled for pumping are only 5/8″ and can be placed up to 5 feet apart. See below for more reasons why we recommend the use of Polyurethane foam.

Advantages of Polyurethane Foam

Light Weight Black Icon

Light Weight

Concrete mixtures used in traditional mudjacking are heavy and will sink overtime. Polyurethane technology is designed to provide a lasting solution, that almost never needs to be re-pumped.
Water Resistant Black Icon

Water Resistant

The polyurethane foam will withstand potential damages caused by flooding and weather related factors because of its stability and resistance to water. It does not deteriorate in the presence of water or weaken over time.
Durable Concrete Black Icon

Durable

Polyurethane is durable. The foam mixture is non-absorbent. Meaning it will not expand, contract or crack under extreme weather conditions or sudden temperature changes. It is a great solution for concrete lifting Calgary.
Certified Paper Black Icon

Certified

Polyurethane is certified quality material. The polyurethane used by Concrete Experts is certified by HMI and is guaranteed fresh and a top-quality product. It is specially designed for concrete lifting and leveling. We have the highest confidence in the quality and safety of the product we are using.

Sustainable

Polyurethane is sustainable. Concrete leveling over the replacement from concrete means fewer concrete slabs end up in landfills. In addition, HMI polyurethane foam is made from 40% recycled materials.

Set up time

The polyurethane foam used for concrete lifting in Calgary sets up in seconds. And it can almost immediately support a vehicle or other loads.

Concrete lifting Calgary: How Can We Help

Common Concrete Problem Areas

Driveway and Floors BeforeDriveway and Floors After

Driveways and Floors:

Floors are meant to be flat and even. If you’re experiencing slanted floors or cracked driveways, chances are your home has begun to sink. This raises a number of issues. Injection of polyurethane foam into problem areas enhances structural stability, ensuring your house has a firm foundation.

Common Driveway and Floor problems:

  • Widening gaps between garage and driveway. This allows water to drain between the slabs rather than down the driveway, perpetuating the problem.
  • Negative slope towards the house. This can cause cracking in the foundation and water leakage into the house or garage.
  • Uneven joints that are tripping hazards and can hurt those who visit your home or place of business.
  • Cracks caused by sinking concrete or voids beneath the concrete.
  • Collection and pools of water or ice due to improper drainage.
  • Uneven garage or man doors due to concrete sinking on one side or the other.
  • Nesting areas for voles, skunks, and rabbits created by sinking ground or voids under concrete.

 

There are two solutions for these issues:
1. Replacement
+ Brand new concrete.
+ Correct slope
+ No drainage issues
– Costs more than polyurethane lifting/levelling or mudjacking

2. Lifting/Levelling The Concrete
+ Corrects slope
+ Resolves drainage issues
+ Cost effective
– If damaged/old will look the same after the lift.

We provide both of these solutions and are happy to provide you with a cost comparison.

Sidewalks and Walkways:

Cracks in your sidewalk and walkway can be dangerous tripping hazards and unaesthetic eye sores. We can raise and level your walkways and eliminate cracks with our unique formula and technique. For tougher cases, concrete replacement may be necessary and we can help with that too.

Some Common Sidewalk and Walkway Issues are:

  • Extra-large steps that can be too large for children or elderly and just downright uncomfortable for anyone really.
  • Nesting areas for voles, skunks, and rabbits created by sinking ground or voids under concrete.
  • Negative slope towards the house possibly causing cracking in the foundation and water leakage into the house or garage.
  • Not enough support for additions or decks sitting on concrete slabs.

There are two solutions for these issues:
1. Replacement
+ Brand new concrete.
+ Correct slope
+ No drainage issues
– Costs more than polyurethane lifting/levelling or mudjacking

2. Lifting/Levelling The Concrete
+ Corrects slope
+ Resolves drainage issues
+ Cost effective
– If damaged/old will look the same after the lift.

We provide both of these solutions and are happy to provide you with a cost comparison.

Sidewalk and Walkways BeforeSidewalk and Walkways After
Void Filling and Stabilisation BeforeVoid Filling and Stabilisation After

Void Filling and Stabilization:

As buildings sink and shift over time, cracking isn’t the only problem to look out for. Large holes and voids that form around the foundation can be dangerous. We can inject polyurethane foam into these holes to secure and stabilize your home as well as the foundation upon which it stands.

Some Common Issues Are:

  • No support under concrete causing the building or floor to sink.
  • When machinery or other equipment goes over the floor there is movement in the floor that can cause problems with the infrastructure or machinery operating on the floor.
  • Nesting by voles, skunks and other critters causing a hazard.
  • Water tends to accumulate in these areas because of improper drainage and the area is not sealed off causing instability underneath your concrete/building.

Solutions:

By using state of the art technology, we inject polyurethane foam into the area. Not only does it fill the void and support the concrete, but it stabilizes the ground and compacts it to create a more stable subgrade.

The polyurethane foam can support tens of thousands of pounds and will last forever. Only UV light can break it down.

Stairs and Steps:

If the steps leading up to your home or business have started to crack or sink, it’s best to catch the problem early on. The weight of sinking cement steps can cause additional cracking of sidewalks as well as leave gaping spaces. Sunken steps are also an inconvenient tripping hazard. Consider what lifting, levelling or replacing your concrete stairs could look like for you.

Some Common Stairs And Steps Issues Are:

  • Pulling away from the house.
  • Sinking down creating large steps into the home or place of business. These can be too large for children or elderly and just downright uncomfortable for anyone really.
  • Cracking sidewalks because they are dropping with the stairs.
  • Pooling ice or water at the bottom of the stairs.
  • Improper drainage towards the house causing flooding or cracking in the foundation.

There are two solutions for these issues:
1. Replacement
+ Brand new stairs/steps
+ Correct slope
+ No drainage issues
– Costs more and requires several days to replace.

2. Lifting/Levelling The Concrete
+ Corrects slope
+ Resolves drainage issues
+ Cost effective and less invasive: done in one day
– If damaged/old will look the same after the lift.

We provide both of these solutions and are happy to provide you with a cost comparison.

Bryan and his team were actually at my neighbors place and I asked if there was a time he could come back and take a look and quote on my driveway, he told me now was good. He looked at my driveway and garage pad, quoted me a price, worked a deal with my neighbor and did the work right then and there! Very professional, courteous, and gave me a realistic quote that didn’t change after the work was completed. I highly recommend Bryan and his crew to everyone!

Concrete lifting Calgary with Concrete experts

Sunken concrete is a problem that plagues the Calgary market more than most others. Dramatic temperature shifts between sumer and winter months, heavy snowfalls during our extended winter, and calgary chinooks all contribute to shifting and settling ground beneath the concrete, making it prone to cracking.

Concrete leveling Calgary: Why?

Aesthetics and safety

The benefits of concrete levelling and lifting are a matter of aesthetics as well as safety. Broken or uneven sidewalks and walkways in front of homes and businesses can become obvious eye sores or tripping hazards. We employ a technique that involves the injection of polyurethane foam into the problem areas. The process is much faster than replacing the concrete and much cleaner and more efficient than using traditional mudjacking methods to lift and level the concrete. Concrete levelling eliminates the unappealing cracks and crevices in your sidewalk and improves your curb appeal.

Water damage

Even more worrisome than ugly gaps and cracks is the water damage that can stem from the effects of sunken concrete and shifting soil. Cracked and uneven driveways can affect water drainage and result in basement flooding or leaks in building foundations. In such instances, the effects can be long term and degenerative over time. The concrete levelling and lifting services we provide will serve as a lasting solution to these issues.

Concrete lifting Calgary with Polyurethane foam

The polyurethane foam we use is less porous and more durable than mudjacking mixtures. The compound of cement and mud used in traditional methods weighs 50 times more than our polyurethane solution. In addition, concrete levelling using polyurethane is the preferred method of fixing and improving highways in the United States. Traditional mudjacking is a temporary fix due to the nature of the compound. Because polyurethane is weather resistant and will not expand or contract over time as concrete does, reapplication is not needed. The only thing known to break down polyurethane is heavy exposure to ultraviolet rays from the sun. As we inject the polyurethane beneath the surface of the concrete, sun exposure is rare and insignificant.

FAQ about Concrete Lifting

Small holes will be drilled in the concrete. Through the holes a concrete lifting foam is injected below the concrete slab. This foam will expand and harden until the concrete is level again. Afterwards the drilled holes are filled so you hardly notice them.


Since concrete lifting is a custom service, depending on the size and state of your concrete slab, there isn’t a fixed price we can provide without visiting the site to make a job estimate. We usually create a custom quote for the concrete lifting of your driveway, sidewalk or garage floor. In general concrete lifting and leveling is a cost-effective method.


Concrete lifting with a concrete lifting foam is long-lasting. Concrete is a material that has a long lifespan. If you notice cracks or sunken slabs, fixing it with a concrete lifting foam helps preserve your concrete. Concrete Experts uses a polyurethane foam that is strong enough to help keep the concrete in place for many years.


There are different ways to fix a sunken concrete slab. At Concrete Experts we recommend using a lifting foam. This way you don’t have to replace the concrete, which can be expensive and time consuming. The old method mudjacking uses a heavy concrete solution, polyurethane is a lightweight alternative.
