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!

- 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.

Raising concrete in problem areas can be done one of two ways, through mudjacking or Lifting Concrete the Poly Way. The poly way, also referred to as polyjacking, foam jacking, poly foam, or foam lifting, uses polyurethane foam in an eco-friendly, two-part polyurethane process. The process allows the polyurethane foam to be injected through holes that are approximately 5/8” in diameter in the concrete and then lifts the sunken concrete. This article highlights the different ways to lift and raise concrete the poly way, including the many industry-related terms to be aware of when considering how to search for the right company to fix your sunken concrete.
What can poly lift?
Polyjacking has the ability to lift and repair concrete in a variety of locations, including:
- Concrete steps
- Garage floors
- Foundation slabs
- Pool slabs
- Basement floors
The foam process is an innovative way to lift a problem area quicker, cleaner, and more efficiently compared with traditional mudjacking.
Why all the names for the polyjacking process?
Polyjacking is a two-part process that has evolved into the more efficient and effective way to repair sunken concrete. The traditional mudjacking process is the most common way that residents and homeowners search for the process of lifting concrete. In addition to polyjacking and mudjacking, some of the most searched terms referring to the poly process are poly foam, poly lifting, mud lifting, concrete lifting, and foam jacking. Reach out to the experts at PolyMagic for a determination on whether the use of mudjacking or foamjacking will best fit your needs.
Can polyjacking be used in hard to reach spaces?
Polyjacking equipment and materials is much smaller than the mudjacking materials and equipment. Mudjacking carries a large weight from the volume of the mud, and requires additional employees to complete the labor, along with the necessary larger machinery and equipment. Mud weighs 30 times poly (as an example, 120lbs vs. 4lbs per cubic foot).
Case Study: take a look at the below before and after pictures of a project that was completed by PolyMagic after a local Kansas City company performed mudjacking unsuccessfully. This is an example of lifting concrete the poly way! See the difference? Get a quick, free quote today – click here!
When someone needs an area of concrete repaired, it’s important to know the main differences in mudjacking vs. polyjacking, so you can speak and understand the lingo. When determining the most effective method of repairing concrete, trust the experts.

See the below illustration demonstrating the difference between the sheer volume needed to repair the same area when using mudjacking vs. polyjacking.
Mudjacking has many benefits within the concrete repair industry, however when compared with polyjacking, one of the main differences in mudjacking vs. polyjacking is that mudjacking takes 5.5 times the volume of mud to repair the exact same area when using poly. Here’s a recent article with additional differences in mudjacking and polyjacking, which you may find helpful.
In addition, mudjacking requires several experienced employees, heavy materials and equipment to complete a project. Polyjacking can be completed by a single experienced employee, with the polyurethane equipment confined in a single work van.
PolyMagic has the ability to transport all of the required equipment in a confined Ford transit van. The two tanks needed to complete the polyjacking process are only 35-inches tall x 24″ wide!
The polyjacking process has a huge difference in the overall equipment, materials and man power needed to perform a job. Less mess, more efficient results and accuracy.

This article highlights the best option to lift uneven concrete areas, utilizing polyjacking. As Kansas City’s leading concrete raising company, PolyMagic has some tips on utilizing the best equipment and expertise to get the intended results.
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 ⅝” 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.
When people consider the best option to lift uneven concrete areas, one might consider mudjacking. This is a viable solution for certain situations. However, in many cases the soil is still disturbed after the grout mix of mudjacking is inserted between the soil and the concrete slab. The shear weight of the mixture can cause additional settlement. Polyurethane weighs 250 to 300 pounds less per yard then traditional mudjacking material.
An additional benefit to polyjacking as the best option to lift uneven concrete areas is the cost effectiveness and time allocation of the process. When compared to concrete replacement, the process of raising concrete with polyurethane foam is inexpensive. It is also exponentially faster than replacing concrete. Repaired areas are ready within minutes to be utilized, as they were intended.
