Save Money! Don't Replace Concrete, Raise It.

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

Do you have a sinking concrete slab? Uneven concrete can be an eyesore and a trip hazard. It lowers property value and resale value. Sinking slab only gets worse, it will not get better on its own. PolyLEVEL is a cheaper and better alternative to the other options.

Mudjacking is Out! 

Mudjacking is a common method to level concrete, but it is old-fashioned and expensive! It involves creating large holes in the concrete, ruining the smooth appearance. The cement slurry used in the mudjacking process is a heavy 120 pounds per cubic foot. All this weight puts a lot of pressure on the soil holding up the slab. This can make the problem worse than it already was. With no support and too much weight, concrete slab sinks. Mudjacking isn’t a quick fix. The cement slurry takes days to cure and makes a huge mess.

Concrete Replacement is Costly! 

Replacing the sinking concrete costs money, takes a long time, and is a messy process. First, the concrete has to be broken and removed with a loud jackhammer. A concrete truck has to come out to the home to pour concrete, costing you money. If the sinking slab is in the rear of the home, the concrete truck will damage the lawn driving over it. Even worse, replacing the concrete does not fix the problem. Slab doesn’t sink because the concrete is poor, it sinks because the soil cannot support the weight above it. Simply replacing the concrete will only waste money and time. It will sink again.

The PolyLEVEL System 

PolyLEVEL is quicker, easier, and cheaper than the alternatives and it works. PolyLEVEL is made out of high-density waterproof polymers. Small holes are drilled into the sinking slab and PolyLEVEL is injected underneath the concrete, filling the void underneath. After the void is filled, PolyLEVEL expands and lifts the slab back up into place. The solution is simple, and it dries in under an hour. It is lightweight, will not wash out during rain, and is environmentally friendly. Installation is clean and simple, there are no special trucks required and it is cost effective. PolyLEVEL has been used on roads, bridges, industrial buildings, and railroads. It comes with a long-term warranty you can trust.
