How long has The URETEK Method® been used? 2017-03-21T12:59:46+00:00

Our patented process has been used over 20 years! WORLDWIDE!! We have excellent results that last.

I have a big gap, can you close big gaps in our slab? 2017-03-21T12:58:20+00:00

The URETEK Method® has been used to level slabs with as much as 15 inches of drop!

We have built-in furniture where the foundation issues are worse…what happens with our furniture? 2017-03-21T12:56:18+00:00

You do not need to worry, one of the advantages of Uretek is that we try to not leave any trace behind!

Is there dirty equipment, mess, and dust in the house? 2017-03-21T12:53:50+00:00

You will have two options: The Uretek Method or Piers. We can do both. The Uretek Method is clean with virtually no mess. Work is controlled by our equipment outside. If you choose to go with pressed pilings (piers), it is a much dirtier process :).

Is the geopolymer harmful to my family and pets? 2017-03-21T12:49:45+00:00

No. There should be no reason they should touch it. But if they did, it is environmentally benign and does not leave a harmful residue.

Does the process give off an odor? 2017-03-21T12:48:26+00:00

Our geopolymer process is odorless.

I have carpet. How do you handle homes with carpet? 2017-03-21T12:47:05+00:00

Many times, we can loosen the carpet from the tack strip. This allow us access to the foundation with no signs of the drill hole. If we are unable to do that, a tiny slit is made in the carpet. Once the work is completed, the slit (less than an inch) is virtually undetectable.

I have tile floors. Won’t the holes show? 2017-03-21T12:37:04+00:00

It will show but will be practically unnoticeable. The size of the hole is about the size of a penny. We will always try to drill in the grout line. All holes are sealed and repaired after the work is completed.

How long does it take to complete? 2017-03-21T12:34:13+00:00

Most jobs usually take less than a day. We should be out by dinner 🙂

If I use the geopolymer, do I also need piers installed? 2017-03-21T12:33:00+00:00

There are times when we will use both but that is rare. Our patented geopolymer eliminates the need for interior piers or tunneling.

How do you ensure the slab will become level? 2017-03-21T12:31:15+00:00

Our experienced technicians use sophisticated equipment combined with laser or computer levels throughout the procedure to carefully monitor and control the amount of lift. Our injection method (short-shot) ensures we can reach the desired height within 1/10th of an inch!

What is the URETEK Method®? 2017-03-21T12:28:23+00:00
