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.

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 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.
