Spray foam really is a magical tool for household insulation. Although fiberglass has been commonly use for insulation, spray foam can actually outperform it. Plus, with so many ways you can use expanding foam, this material certainly is handy. Now only if it could help us out with all of those concrete problems…
Oh wait, it actually can!
Demilec, a company located in Texas, has invented a type of insulation foam that can help all of the cracks and uneven pavement problems. Geolift can help to lift existing concrete surfaces and fix those problem areas around your house with much less labor. Geolift works for driveways, sidewalks, patios, garage floors, even pool decks. And yes, it is a foam, just like your beloved spray foam!
Geolift works in three steps. The first step is to drill holes in the problem concrete. Holes should be no less than six inches away from the edge of the concrete.
Once the holes have been set, the Geolift is injected in between the concrete and the dirt. The foam will fill up the parts of the concrete that are uneven and will raise it to the proper height.
After the Geolift has done its’ magical work, the last thing left to do is patching up the holes. Patch up the holes with concrete, and your new driveway (or sidewalk, or walkway) will look good as new.

Not only will this magical foam help to meet codes and comply with your insurance, but the actual product is great for the environment. Geolift is made with 11 percent recyclable products (such as plastic and soy beans) and uses zero-ODP blowing agents.
Unfortunately, Geolift isn’t something you can just go buy at a store. But you can contact Demilec for all the parts and equipment you need! It may sound pricey, but trust us; it’s going to make you look rich after comparing the prices of a normal concrete demolition and renovation.
Now while you wait for your Geolift order, you may as well fix those problem insulation areas in your home. These top three spray foam insulation sprays should definitely be considered for that project!
