I cannot say enough good things about working with this company! Vince and Jerry were very professional and offered remarkable customer service. I called PolyMagic in a panic as we were in a rush to get paperwork for closing after getting the run around from another company. Right away, Jerry was on site for an estimate and they got paperwork to my lending agent almost immediately. Jerry showed up on time and completed the work in the rain with no complaints. Great job, guys! We are thankful for you!

PolyMagic uses state of the art equipment to lift concrete using the best known method – expansive polyurethane foam, which is still interchanged with the term mudjacking. This innovative method is also referred to as polyjacking, poly leveling, or even poly foam, and requires the concrete slab to be raised by our expert team drilling holes through the top surface of the slab, then injecting high-density polyurethane foam into the holes to fill in voids and cracks. This is the most effective method of concrete lifting.

When it comes to concrete repair, many homeowners interchange the terminology between mudjacking and polyjacking. Let’s take a look at the process of both, and focus in on the advantages of mudjacking.
Polyjacking utilizes polyurethane injections, which are much lighter than the grout mixture used in mudjacking. Concrete slabs settle due to a void underneath them.
Mudjacking is a process that raises and levels sunken concrete, eliminating the need for concrete replacement. Mudjacking utilizes a grout mix of mudjacking is inserted between the soil and the concrete slab. The process begins by drilling a 1 5/8 “diameter hole(s) through the top of the existing concrete. (The holes are the diameter of a Snapple bottle cap.) The number of holes and their placement depends on the size of the piece to be raised. A mud slurry is pumped into the hole(s) in the concrete. The hydraulic pressure raises up the concrete until it is at the desired level. After the concrete is raised, the hole(s) is plugged with a foam plug, the concrete surface is cleaned, the foam plug(s) is pushed down, and the hole(s) is filled with concrete. The shear weight of the mixture can cause additional settlement. Polyurethane weighs 250 to 300 pounds less per yard then traditional mudjacking material.

Let’s explore the advantages of mudjacking.
#1 Cost Savings
The first and main advantage is the cost savings. Mudjacking is generally 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of concrete replacement.
#2: Minimal Disturbance
Our experienced team can finish most jobs in a matter of hours in a single day. The mudjacking process does not require disturbance to existing landscaping. In contrast, replacement is a lengthy procedure. It requires demolishing and removing the existing concrete, recreating the concrete bed, and pouring. New concrete takes days to cure and dry before use.
The process of mudjacking requires several experienced employees, heavy materials and equipment to complete a project.When determining the most effective method of repairing concrete, trust the experts. Not all concrete repair companies are created equal, so it’s important to rely on an experienced company, like Kansas City area’s PolyMagic.
Another advantage of mudjacking is that the concrete will not be mismatched, as it would with replacement concrete. The concrete will remain consistent with the same color and texture as the original.
#5: Ecofriendly Solution
Mudjacking is a green alternative to replacement concrete. The amount of energy used to produce cement (the main ingredient in concrete replacment) is
#6: Increase in Property Value
Uneven concrete is not only unsightly, it also creates a tripping hazard. When you choose to raise existing concrete, you also eliminate the need to match color and pattern with the non-damaged sections.

As the Midwest weather begins to change in preparation of colder temperatures, PolyMagic continues to see the correlation between cold weather and concrete repairs. Homes, apartment complexes, buildings, and businesses have concrete surfaces that are exposed to all weather elements, specifically cold weather. The exposure of varying temperatures and moisture can cause additional concrete cracking from frozen water expanding the pores of the concrete. As a result of the cyclical freezing and thawing of the rain, snow, and sleet rupturing concrete is very common in the Kansas City area.
Another factor to consider when looking at Cold Weather and Concrete Repairs is that Midwestern winters can bring ice, which is commonly combated with de-icing chemicals. The chemicals can cause concrete to flake and break off into chunks. The concrete crumbling can worsen uneven concrete and tripping hazards. Many areas of Kansas City homes and businesses can be affected by the settlement and shifting, including driveways, sidewalks, garage floors, steps, basements, pool slabs, foundation slabs, and more.
There are many concrete repair companies within the Kansas City area, but not all specialize in polyjacking ,which is a process of injecting high-density polyurethane foam into the concrete. This is a more cost-effective solution compared to mudjacking, and can have many additional benefits. Continue reading about the main differences in mudjacking vs polyjacking. Polyjacking, or poly leveling, is the most effective form of concrete repair. The key to polyjacking is to do your research on companies that are reputable, honest, and experienced.
PolyMagic has several reasons they recommend poly leveling as the most effective method of lifting. The first reason is that the polyurethane machine only needs to very small area to drill a hole into and get the job done. PolyMagic’s polyurethane foam method uses the concrete slab as a means of delivering poly foams that raise concrete, fill voids, and stabilize soils. A 5/8” hole is strategically drilled through the slab into the subgrade. Then, a tapered delivery port is installed into the hole. The injection gun is connected to the port, releasing polyurethane material through the port and slab. Expansion of the material occurs within seconds, raising the concrete.
The second reason that utilizing poly is an effective way to lift concrete slab floors is the clean work area. The poly holes are very small, and the mess is very minimal. The last thing you want inside of your home is a huge mud trail and equipment needed to perform mudjacking. This is not the ideal situation for an in-home project, and some mudjacking companies even refuse to complete work inside of a residence because of the mess. The poly leveling allows experienced companies to come into your home, and even in the tightest areas, perform the lift needed without the heavy equipment, dust/debris, or multiple-person crews running in and out of your house. At PolyMagic, our experienced technician drills a few penny-size holes through the sunken slab in each of the affected rooms. He then pulls in a hose from a box truck parked in the driveway of the home, and injects the polyurethane solution. The solution spreads under the slab until it begins to expand. The foam gradually raises the slab to its original level position.
The third reason for utilizing poly as an effective way to lift concrete slab floors is cost effectiveness, and time, which essentially go hand and hand. Utilizing polyjacking, instead of concrete repair, in the slab floor situations saves thousands and thousands of dollars in in-home instances. After the poly leveling is complete, the surface is able to be used/walked on. Read the additional benefits of polyjacking.

- 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.
- Time– Ready to use immediately.
- Clean Work Environment– No concrete or grout splatter and no wash down needed.
- Smaller Holes– Polyurethane concrete raising drills a nearly invisible 5/8 inch hole and the process calls for considerably fewer holes than traditional mudjacking. When finished, minimal patchwork is needed.
- Lightweight– This material 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.
- Green– Polyurethane is environmentally friendly. It consists of 39-49% renewable and recycled materials.
