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.

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.

As the word “snow” begins to enter the vocabulary of the meteorologists around the Kansas City area, many home and business owners neglect repairs until the weather improves. However, many repairs, including concrete repairs, can be completed before, during, or after the cold weather months. In fact, when winter hits, it will be more difficult to repair the concrete with the natural elements, de-icing chemicals, and additional cracking due to the temperature and moisture fluctuation. For many reasons, including the few listed previously, now is the perfect time to repair your concrete before winter hits.
A Few Reasons to Repair Your Concrete Before Winter Hits
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 why to repair your concrete before winter hits, 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.
