Poly Lifting vs. Mudjacking: Which Concrete Leveling Method Is Better for Kennesaw, GA, Homeowners?
Poly lifting and mudjacking are two of the most widely used methods for lifting sunken concrete slabs on sidewalks, driveways, and patios. For many years, mudjacking was the standard, but this method comes with significant drawbacks. Because it involves pumping a concrete slurry under the slab to stabilize and level the concrete, it can create a major mess. The slurry contains mud and other materials that can cause staining or streaking, often resulting in a sidewalk or driveway that requires deep cleaning with a pressure washer. More importantly, the mixture can expand or contract when temperatures fluctuate and is susceptible to erosion, which can cause the concrete to sink again. At Engineered Solutions of Georgia, we offer Kennesaw, Georgia, homeowners a better alternative to mudjacking.
The Benefits of Our Poly Lifting System
As a team of geotechnical experts and structural engineers with more than 150 years of combined industry experience, we specialize in poly lifting. A cleaner and more cost-effective concrete remediation option than mudjacking, poly lifting is:
- Non-invasive – We carefully inject a polyurethane foam through small, coin-sized holes that are drilled into the sunken concrete, then our design-build team patches the holes to complete a flawless repair.
- Fast – Traditional mudjacking can take more than a day to complete, but we can typically finish a poly lifting project in a day or less.
- Environmentally friendly – Excess concrete slurry from slab jacking must be disposed of in landfills, but our polyurethane foam can be cleaned up simply and releases no harmful chemicals into the environment.
