Level concrete is not only visually appealing but safer for your home. If you have young children or older people living in your home, you’ll probably want to get your concrete leveled to make sure they stay safe year-round. We have a number of proven solutions for leveling concrete at your property, including polyjacking and mudjacking.
Why Choose Poly Jacking?
As a cost-effective and versatile option, many choose concrete for their hardscaping projects. Whether it’s a patio, a walkway, or even a driveway, concrete is durable and long-lasting. However, it does have the ability to sink over time—and the more this occurs, the more problematic it can become. Not only is uneven concrete an eyesore but it’s a legitimate tripping hazard as well. Because of the changing temperatures and rain/snow in St. Louis, this problem could seriously affect your home.
If you have a property with uneven or sinking concrete, then you may be looking for a “concrete leveling” option. If that’s the case, then poly jacking may be the solution for you.
Poly jacking, which is more formally known as polyurethane concrete leveling, is the process of injecting polyurethane material into small holes made in your concrete by a professional. The material will then rapidly expand in order to level out the surface of your concrete slab, as seen in the before and after pictures below.
Poly Jacking Vs. Mudjacking
While raising concrete has typically been performed with a process called “mudjacking,” there are a few reasons why poly jacking is actually the better option. For one, the drilled holes are smaller—only about the size of a dime, whereas with mudjacking the holes are about the size of a silver dollar. Similarly, fewer holes are often needed with poly jacking. Plus, polyurethane is simply a better product than the mud mixture used with mudjacking. It’s less messy and overall more effective due to the rapid rate at which it cures.
While poly jacking does cost a little bit more, in the end, it’s worth that extra investment for an overall better job and long-lasting product.
