Want an effective way to repair concrete cracks?
Water leakage on a wall or along the foundation can be a frightening situation. One may ask… How long has the water been in here? Do we have mold issues? What are our options for repair? How much will this cost? How much foundation damage has been caused? Who do I call to repair the cracks the right way the first time?
Not all repair companies are created equal in their experience, equipment, and customer service. Determining the most effective solution to a foundation or wall crack can be difficult and a solution is not a ‘one size fits all’ mentality. In fact, many factors are considered by the experts at PolyMagic before deciding on a solution. Those factors include the width and thickness of the crack and the surrounding area, foundation movement, and structural damage. There are two solutions that PolyMagic suggests to our customers:
Epoxy injection should be used for cracks that need to be structurally repaired and serves more as a barrier that bonds and holds. Epoxies can add a great amount of strength to a foundation as they are known for their static condition. The epoxy injection process begins by cleaning the crack and the surrounding area of all debris. Injection ports are then inserted along the length of the crack. The epoxy is then injected through the ports until the crack is completely sealed.
Polyurethane resins are known for their flexibility. Depending on the size and mobility of the crack, the poly resin will move with the wall during expansion and contraction of the surrounding soils. This specially formulated polyurethane can even be injected into actively leaking cracks, stopping water within minutes.

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.

A typical winter in Kansas City consists of ice, snow and sleet, mixed with some 65 degree days! 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. As one can imagine, a Kansas City winter can be unpredictable and dicy!
Ice and Concrete Repair in Kansas City
When water turns to ice, it can expand almost 10% more in volume than its liquid amount. In the concrete world, that is a significant change and can cause more problems. The freezing and thawing cycles can cause major issues, or even destroy concrete foundations, sidewalks, slabs, basements, stairs, or even garages. 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.
PolyMagic has several reasons they recommend poly leveling as the most effective method of lifting, especially during the winter months. 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.
