Polyurethane Injection vs. Compaction Grouting

The professional contractors of My Foundation Repair Pros are often asked “which is better - Polyurethane (poly) foam injection (or mudjacking) or deep compaction grouting?” To answer in one line:

Polyurethane injection is about 5-8 times cheaper than compaction grouting.

Polyurethane Injection vs. Compaction Grouting

One should not look at cost alone when making a repair plan decision. The answer, however, requires some explanation of various conditions. Generally, polyurethane injection is more cost-effective than compaction grouting, but it does not improve the soil below, rather it is a surface treatment.

In other applications besides foundation repair, such as basement backfill zones, or other deeper soil problems without the benefit of the footing slab interaction, poly injection presents a less confident solution as it does not improve soil conditions but rather only raises the slab to a more desirable elevation.

Even in these applications, it may still make sense to select it over compaction grouting since it can be reinstalled, several times, for less than the cost of compaction grouting. The deciding factor is usually things like downtime, inconvenience, avoiding multiple repairs to floor finishes, and other similar reasons.

Both compaction grouting and poly/mudjacking injections have valid arguments for use depending on circumstances and site conditions. Basically, like any other foundation repair, we need to look at the full picture before deciding on a repair plan route.

The professional contractors of My Foundation Repair Pros provide both polyurethane injection and compaction grouting services of the best quality in your area.
