While mudjacking is a traditional solution for cracked and uneven concrete, it’s not an ideal way to tackle these issues. Mudjacking is a process that involves injecting the space beneath concrete with a mortar-based mixture—usually water, soil, sand, and cement.
As it’s injected, this mixture fills voids and empty spaces, effectively lifting the slab as it does. It then hardens.
But what about a more effective, fast, and less invasive method?
Master Services offers PolyLyft, a high-density polyurethane foam that expands and lifts concrete. This is a durable, long-lasting solution to sinking concrete, and it will not require repeated injections—unlike mudjacking. Mudjacking is not permanent and can be costly given the need for continued injections.
What’s more, mudjacking is only appropriate when used in conjunction with slab piers to lift heavier concrete structures. It’s not a good solution for most homeowners and property owners who only need a driveway, footing, or slab raised. Further, it’s difficult to control where mudjacking will lift walls, meaning they may lift unevenly and cause further problems.
PolyLyft is a cost-effective, quick method for raising concrete and eliminating tripping hazards. It fills voids to stabilize concrete and provide accurate leveling, and is long-lasting, waterproof, and durable.
