The most obvious out of the 3 signs your driveway needs some TLC is visual cracking. Concrete cracks can be a result of many factors, including the freeze/thaw cycle, foundation issues, deep tree roots, and even heavy machinery or equipment. Cracking can be a gradual process, but with the temperament of a below freezing midwestern winter, the cracking can be sped up. With the winter the Kansas City area had this year, any hairline crack has probably grown and magnified in length and width. The crew at PolyMagic has the experience of construction and concrete repair within the Midwestern region. Let us check out your problem areas and provide an honest quote.
When your concrete slabs, driveways, and steps become uneven and begin to sink, a cost effective solution for many concrete repair companies is mudjacking. This is a suitable way to lift the concrete, but the evolution of polyjacking has shown greater advantages compared to that of mudjacking. The process can also be known as mud jacking, concrete raising, concrete lifting, or slabjacking, and is a technique that involves injecting concrete material below the sunken concrete, raising it to the point where it is level again. When looking for a reputable company near you, you should do your homework. Take some time to pull up google reviews, get multiple quotes, and ask the company for references. These three elements of the homework phase will tell you a lot about your decision to proceed with the company.

As the weather continues to winterize the Kansas City area, let’s dream of the warmer, spring-like days ahead! Do you have cracking concrete areas that need to be repaired? Let us help you! https://www.polymagic.net/request-a-quote/
This winter has been extraordinarily wintery for Kansas City. Aside from the ice, snow and sleet, the temperatures have been below freezing an abnormally longer amount of time than normal. This is the perfect mixture for driveway concrete sinking and cracking. Needless to say, if you have existing cracks in your concrete and as the Kansas City weather brings ice that makes for a challenging combination. A correlation happens when wet weather seeps into the concrete cracks, the water then freezes and the concrete cracks grow bigger and bigger, becoming trip hazards.
The cracking of your driveway concrete doesn’t necessarily happen overnight. The process is gradual, but can worsen quickly in winter due to the concrete expanding and shrinking with the changes in moisture and temperature. When water turns to ice, it can expand almost 10% more in volume than its liquid amount. In the concrete industry, that is a significant change and can cause significant problems.
It’s important to consult with a knowledgable concrete repair or concrete lifting company because not all utilize the most effective means of lifting – polyjacking. Although some people still refer to the process as mudjacking, a company similar to PolyMagic uses an advanced and state of the art process called polyjacking. The process uses polyurethane injections, which are much lighter than the grout mixture used in mudjacking, and the holes drilled are a nearly invisible 5/8 inch hole!
The American Concrete Institute addresses concrete cracking: “Even with the best floor designs and proper construction, it is unrealistic to expect crack-free and curl-free floors. Consequently, every owner should be advised by both the designer and contractor that it is normal to expect some amount of cracking and curling on every project, and that such an occurrence does not necessarily reflect adversely on either the adequacy of the floor’s design or the quality of its construction.”

When considering companies to repair your uneven concrete, it’s important to be aware of the lingo. Do you know the difference between mudjacking and the newest and most efficient process on the market – polyjacking? It’s important to at least know the basics so you can better interact with your potential concrete repair company. Companies like PolyMagic take the time to actually speak with you and explain the process that will best suit your needs. They respect your time and will only offer the best solution. Let’s check out the Top 3 Reasons Why Polyjacking is Most Effective:
#1: Cost Effective – Concrete raising is typically about 33% less than 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. The experienced team at PolyMagic is equipped to offer a free estimate and walk you through each step of the process for the most cost effective solution that fits your needs.
#2: Time – Polyjacking has very little ‘rest’ time compared to other processes, such as mudjacking. You will experience little to no down time. This is great for the high traffic areas around your house – concrete stairs, driveway, sidewalks, porches, and patios. Less of a construction site to deal with around your house!
#3: Lightweight – The polyurethane mixture will never lose density. It is permanent and weighs only about 2 pounds per cubic foot. Compared to traditional mudjacking that weighs about 100 pounds per cubic foot.
Check out the below comparison in the amount of product needed for mudjacking vs. polyjacking… the difference is huge! Be sure to ask the concrete repair companies which method they plan to use. Many people and companies interchange the terms “mudjacking” with “polyjacking” when they are entirely two different methods. Be sure to ask questions.

Uneven concrete is many times overlooked by homeowners until the problem becomes a dangerous tripping hazard or when it’s time to resell your home. Let’s explore some reasons to repair uneven concrete in your garage to eliminate headaches and unsafe areas on your property.
#1: Tripping Hazard
One of the main reasons for repairing uneven concrete is for safety purposes. When concrete becomes uneven, or crumbles, it can become very dangerous and result in tripping hazards for residents and visitors to the home. Your home insurance policy may even require this type of repair be completed to remain compliant with the policy coverage. The last thing you want to happen is for someone to fall on the uneven surface within your garage, resulting in more problems (monetary and safety) than what it would take to find a reputable company to mudjack or polyjack the concrete. Investing in your property, safety, and resell value are all many reasons to utilize a concrete slab repair company.
#2: Further Damage
The unevenness of the concrete in your garage will likely result in further damage to your foundation and concrete slab. The longer the uneven surface is left untreated and not repaired, the longer the amount of time for water and even freezing temperatures to further crack the concrete. The optimal time for repair is when you begin to notice the uneven surface. Many reputable concrete repair companies, such as Kansas City’s PolyMagic, will provide free quotes. PolyMagic even takes it a step further with their online quoting functionality. You are able to upload images of your problem area to their online system (https://www.polymagic.net/request-a-quote/) and their experienced team will review the project and offer a quote.

Another one of the Reasons to Repair Uneven Concrete in Your Garage is that uneven surfaces is the perfect spot for water puddling. Just like a flat roadway, when you have dips and uneven surfaces and it rains, the dips fill with water, creating puddling. Within a confined area such as a garage, the moisture tends to stay inside of the uneven surfaces and cracks, causing additional issues. If you live in an area with climate changes, specifically freezing temperatures, the collection of water, turning to ice, can be a major issue. The ice causes the concrete to expand, resulting in more serious issues. Kansas City’s PolyMagic is one fo the companies that has extensive experience with repairing uneven concrete surfaces resulting from ice repair.
