How much does concrete raising cost?
Concrete raising is typically about half the cost of replacing the same concrete. Ultimately, the cost of raising or stabilizing concrete is a direct reflection of how much leveling material the project will require. How far the slab is settled, if there are voids present, or if other sections need to be involved in the repair, will determine where on that scale the job would cost.
This is why we offer FREE estimates for our concrete repair and concrete raising services, so an experienced crew member can come to your home or business and provide you with an accurate estimate for completing your specific project.
What kind of material do you use to raise concrete?
A dual component polyurethane foam, specifically engineered for raising, leveling, and stabilizing concrete. Our foams are environmentally friendly, consisting of 39-49% renewable and recycled materials, making it the “greenest” polyurethane foam on the market.
Will there be heavy trucks on my lawn?
Our polyurethane concrete system is contained in a trailer and is pumped through a hose. We only use small tools such as the hose, injection gun, drills, and sometimes small saws.
How do you fill the holes?
After the concrete is raised, the 5/8” hole (size of a dime) is filled with a cement based product to cure as close as possible. The concrete is ready for use immediately. However, it is recommended to allow the patch material to set-up before use, typically a couple of hours.
Is there any maintenance needed?
When our work is completed, it will be your responsibility to caulk the seams of the sections that were repaired, or backfill against any exposed areas to contain the material, and prevent future sinking.
Self-leveling cement caulk can be purchased easily at a home improvement store and works great for sealing joints. Using a silicone based, self-leveling caulk is recommended. If a crack is very large, to use less material, backer rod can be used first between the crack, before applying the caulk on top.
Preventing water from going under the slab is key to preserving the repaired slab. Make sure that your downspouts are correctly placed to assure water runs away from your concrete slabs or foundation.
Taking these suggested steps for preserving your raised concrete is a condition of your Stabil Solutions warranty.
What concrete can be raised?
Solid slabs of concrete can be raised and stabilized. Gravel areas or blacktop are unable to be repaired, and need to be replaced or re-installed to remedy settling issues. Slabs of concrete that are badly cracked may also be too damaged to lift.

Raising settled concrete can be half the cost of replacing it with less damage to your landscaping and downtime. Our expert estimators will be able to assess and provide you with an accurate, FREE estimate for your project.
Can you raise/level pavers?
If the pavers are set on top of concrete, we very likely can. If they are set in sand, we will not be able to raise/level them.
Can you raise asphalt?
No, we only work on concrete.
