Why does concrete sink?

Concrete sinks as the soil underneath a slab, either compacts (the water in the ground has evaporated to the point that it has shrunken) or a void or pocket has been created due to erosion from running water (from a downspout or a natural sloping of the ground toward your cement) or rainwater, causing a concrete slab to sink, settle or become uneven.

The weather in our Kansas City region is usually fairly dry. When a region experiences less rain or moisture, the water in the soil evaporates which dries the soil causing the cement slabs to sink into the ground in an uneven way. Winter snow and ice or improper draining onto your driveway can be especially problematic for concrete. Make sure when the ground thaws each spring you check your driveway and sidewalks for gaps between the concrete slabs. If you think you may have an issue with sinking concrete, call us. The sooner you call us the more cost-effective our visit can be! Contact the polyurethane foam- mud jacking- concrete lifting experts at Concrete Raising Systems today!

What is Mudjacking?

Traditional mud jacking also referred to as ‘slab jacking’, is a process of raising a section of concrete by drilling many holes approximately 2” wide (and up to 4” wide in some cases) in the concrete and pumping a mixture of clean fill dirt, water and cement through the holes effectively pushing the concrete up from below. Traditional mud jacking materials can weigh 100-120 lbs. per cubic foot. Once the cement is lifted, the holes are patched.

Foam jacking is a two-part process where polyurethane foam is injected through holes in the concrete approximately that are 5/8” in diameter. The concrete is effectively raised with the expansion of the foam. The concrete lifting material will expand in the weak soil first to consolidate and cause the dirt to become denser and fill all voids below the concrete. It expands in all directions, sometimes as much as 7 feet, so fewer holes are needed to raise the concrete. The foam is set in 30 minutes. Our foam jacking method will not retain moisture so it is not subject to erosion once it is set. Polyurethane foam mud jacking does not settle due to its lightweight nature. Foam weighs 3-8 pounds per cubic foot. The small holes are professionally patched by the professionals at Concrete Raising Systems!

What Our Customers Are Saying

I am really pleased with the work Concrete Raising Systems has done. I have a three car garage and my driveway had sunken 4-5” and it is now as level as it could be. Having them fix my driveway was a lot cheaper than tearing it out and replacing it. I’ve known Ken for over 25 years . He is honest and he always does what he says he is going to do. I definitely would recommend them.

-John Kearns, Kearney, MO Homeowner

I am so glad I found Concrete Raising Systems. Ken and Jason are very trustworthy and professional men that did an excellent job lifting sections of my driveway. Ken arrived quickly following my phone call and Jason arrived on time doing a great job. It feels good to be able to work with an honest company in today’s society. I gladly recommend them for anyone needing concrete raising. Thank you, both.
