Anchor Foundation Repair Bryan College Station

At Anchor Foundation Repair, we have been raising concrete flatwork and foundations since 1985 through other methods. Though we do not currently offer polyjacking, we know about the process. We often refer homeowners to polyjacking when it makes sense for their home situation.

This article will briefly discuss what polyjacking is and what it’s good for. Then we will refer you to the best contractors in our area that provide this service as well as offer some alternatives.

What Is Polyjacking and How Does It Work?

Polyjacking is one method of concrete slab jacking that is done to help lift, level, and support sunken concrete surfaces or foundations. A high-density expanding polyurethane foam is injected through holes drilled into the surface that *jacks up* the slab of concrete from below and holds it at the desired elevation and slope.

Polyjacking can be used on exterior concrete flatwork like sidewalks, driveways, and roadways. The method can also be employed for some slab-on-grade foundation repair situations.

Polyjacking goes by a few common and brand names:

  • Polyleveling
  • Polyfoam injection
  • Polyraising
  • Polymer injection

What Situations Is Polyjacking Best For?

Polyjacking is quick and cost-effective for smaller exterior concrete flatwork jobs around residential homes. It is often used for roadways due to its speedy install time and high load-bearing capacity under horizontal surface compression.

Polyjacking used in foundation repair has more limited appropriate applications in our opinion. Though polyjacking contractors offer this service as a complete foundation settlement solution, we would not recommend using polyjacking as a singular method of long-term foundation repairs.

Interior Settlement

Polyjacking only rests on the top surface of the soil and does not penetrate the ground, so it’s a great short-term solution for slight interior settlement. Issues could arise again later since it doesn’t go deep enough to reach non-reactive soil ranges.

But some homeowners need interior foundation repairs and either can’t afford it or can’t handle the move-out needed for interior pier work. 

In these cases, we suggest polyjacking as an alternative for interior support when coupled with traditional foundation support on the home’s perimeter. In other words, regular foundation repair along the edges (drilled piers or pressed pilings) and polyjacking under the middle of the house.
