Why Raise and Level your Concrete?
A concrete slab that has sunken may lead to foundation leaks and a wet basement over time. Especially if the driveway has sunken by a garage. Water follows the path of least resistance. A settled or sunken driveway may end up costing a homeowner more money over time in foundation repairs. Your home is made up of systems both inside and out. When your drainage system does not flow properly, it can compromise the structures where the water tends to drain. As a result, your driveway, sidewalk or other concrete slabs around your home may need concrete raising.
What do cracks in the concrete mean?
Cracks in concrete open the door for more water to flow underneath your concrete. Cracks are found in driveways, sidewalks, porches, patios, garage floors and pool decks. Erosion of dirt and clay in Missouri and Kansas have seen unprecedented settling in the last five years. This settling may have compacted the dirt beneath your driveway or sidewalk, which has created a void or a bridge. As the earth has settled and moved, a bridge is formed and the concrete slabs begin to sink.
Contact or call us today at (816) 419-8306 for an estimate to have your concrete repaired with Poly Jacking! When sinking or settling occurs, a driveway or concrete slab may still be in excellent condition and may not need to be replaced but simply raised. Concrete Raising Systems can raise your concrete in a matter of hours, with our Poly Jacking. We level your concrete by raising your slab with polyurethane foam filling in the spaces the settling earth has created and raises the slab to its rightful place.
Poly Jacking is a Better Solution for Concrete Raising and Repair in Kansas City
Many of the concrete raising jobs we do were previously done with traditional mud jacking methods. That does not mean that the mud jacking company did not do their job. It means the process is not impervious to sinking itself. Mudjacking can be more affected by the weather in Kansas City than poly jacking. Poly jacking foam is a better solution to your earth settling problems because foam can reach and fill the spaces that traditional dirt, water, and cement fillers cannot. When the moisture from traditional mud jacking methods evaporates over time (which it does) more settling can take place and more sinking is the result.
Our Concrete Raising Guarantee
We offer a two-year guarantee on all our poly jacking concrete repair work. If your sidewalk or driveway (or any concrete slab that we raise is over 10 years old) sinks over ¼’within two years, we will come back and raise it again for free. That is our promise to you.
All we offer is foam concrete repair. We don’t offer ‘traditional’ mud jacking. Since we only do one thing, we do it better than anyone else in Kansas City. If you only did one thing all day long, you’d be pretty good at it as well. Don’t you think? Our customers think so too.
We don’t do
As previous home builders, we do know about the systems that operate in and around the structure of a house. But, some folks are a little confused about what constitutes the areas of a home that we can repair. We want to be clear that we don’t fix a leaky roof, a leaky basement, a water heater or pooling water in the dirt. We also do not redirect your downspouts or seal the leaks in your basement. We raise concrete in and around these systems but we do not repair these systems. If you have questions about this, please let us know.
Call the concrete raising guys at Concrete Raising Systems (816) 419-8306 today! We would love to show you how state-of-the-art concrete repair foam can do lift your sinking concrete.
