Concrete Repair Kansas City
A sunken concrete slab 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 cost 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. The erosion of dirt and clay in Missouri and Kansas have seen unprecedented settling these last few 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 us today at (816) 419-8306 for an estimate to repair your concrete with Foam 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 raised. Concrete Raising Systems can raise your concrete in hours with our 2-part polyurethane foam. We level your concrete by raising your slab with foam that fills in the spaces the settling earth has created, raising the slab to its rightful place.
Foam Jacking is a Better Solution for Concrete Repair in Kansas City
Many of the concrete-raising jobs we do have been previously done with traditional mud-jacking methods. That does not mean that the mud-jacking company did not do its job. It means the process may need to be redone as it is not impervious to sinking. Mud jacking can be more affected by the weather than foam jacking. Repairing your concrete with foam lifting is a better solution to your earth-settling problems because the foam will reach and fill 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 occur, resulting in more sinking.
Our Concrete Repair and Raising Guarantee
We offer a two-year guarantee on all our polyjacking concrete repair work. If your sidewalk or driveway (or any concrete slab we raise is over ten years old) sinks over 3/8’’ within two years, we will return 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. When we do only one thing all day long, we get pretty good at it. Don’t you think? Our customers think so too.
We don’t do
As previous home builders, we 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, pooling water in the dirt, redirect your downspouts, or seal the leaks in your basement. We raise and repair concrete in and around these systems, but we do not repair these systems. If you have questions about this, please let us know.
