Sunken Concrete Repair & Leveling
Waco is found in McLennan County and is found along the Brazos River. It is home to around 129,030 people and is the 22nd biggest city in the state. The area is home to the Armstrong Browning Library, Cameron Park and Zoo, the Dr. Pepper Museum, the Red Men Museum and Library, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, and the Texas Sports Hall of Fame. Many people choose to live in this area because there are a lot of great schools, job opportunities, and there always seems to be something fun to do to keep the family entertained.
Homeowners here need to do everything they can to keep up with their properties, and this includes taking care of any concrete problems that may come up. If you have noticed that there are areas of sagging and un-level concrete around your home, you need to get this problem taken care of sooner rather than later. The longer you wait, the more likely it becomes that someone will accidentally trip over the concrete and injure themselves! When this happens, you will be held liable for any damages, and this can result in a huge headache for you. Additionally, if you choose not to take care of the problem, it can take away from your home's value.
Polyjacking vs Mudjacking and Slabjacking
To take care of this common concrete problem, we make use of a technique known as polyjacking. While this process may be similar to mudjacking or slabjacking, it has its differences. For one, polyjacking makes use of a polyurethane foam material whereas mud or slabjacking make use of a messy concrete slurry mix. Also, this repair technique involves drilling holes into the surface of the un-level concrete where the slurry or foaming material will be inserted. With mud or slabjacking, larger holes are needed whereas polyjacking only needs very small holes which can easily be patched over to match with the rest of the surface.
The polyjacking repair will begin with the surface of the concrete being cleaned off so that no dirt or debris gets inside during the repair. Next, small holes as mentioned above will be drilled into the concrete. The foaming material will be inserted and it will fill up the entire void beneath the sagging concrete. The force of the foam will push the concrete back into place and then we will fill and patch over the holes we made. The foaming material will be able to cure within 15 minutes, and afterward, you will be able to drive or walk over the surface like normal once again. This is yet, another benefit to polyjacking over other more traditional repair techniques.
