Concrete Leveling - PolyLevel Concrete Repair Over Mudjacking

Friday, January 20th, 2023 by Aaron Stull

PolyLevel Concrete Repair Over Mudjacking - Image 1Polyleveling is a modern method of concrete leveling that is quickly becoming the preferred method for homeowners and contractors alike. Unlike traditional mudjacking, polyleveling uses a high-density polyurethane foam to lift and level concrete slabs. This method offers a number of advantages over mudjacking, making it the superior choice for most applications.

One of the biggest advantages of polyleveling is its precision. Traditional mudjacking involves pumping a slurry of mud and water under the slab, which can be difficult to control. This can lead to uneven lifting, resulting in a wavy or uneven surface. Polyleveling, on the other hand, uses a precise injection process that allows for a much more even lift. This results in a smooth and level surface that looks and functions like new.

Another advantage of polyleveling is its speed. Traditional mudjacking can be a time-consuming process, with a single lift taking several hours to complete. Polyleveling, on the other hand, can typically be completed in a fraction of the time, with a single lift taking as little as 30 minutes. This can save homeowners and contractors a significant amount of time and money.

Polyleveling is also a much cleaner process than mudjacking. Traditional mudjacking involves pumping a slurry of mud and water under the slab, which can be messy and difficult to clean up. Polyleveling, on the other hand, uses a high-density foam that is clean and easy to work with. This makes the process less disruptive and easier to clean up, minimizing the impact on homeowners and their property.

In addition to the above benefits, polyleveling is also more environmentally friendly than mudjacking. The polyurethane foam used in the process is a non-toxic and non-caustic material that is safe for both people and the environment. This makes it a more sustainable option for homeowners and contractors who are looking for an eco-friendly solution to concrete leveling.

Polyleveling also has better load-bearing capacity and strength than mudjacking. The polyurethane foam used in the process is a much denser and more durable material than the mud used in traditional mudjacking. This means that polyleveled slabs will be able to withstand more weight and pressure, making them a better choice for heavy loads and high traffic areas.

Lastly, polyleveling is more cost-efficient than mudjacking. The precise injection process used in polyleveling means less material is required to lift and level the slab. This makes it a more cost-effective solution in the long run. Also, since polyleveling is faster and less disruptive than mudjacking, it saves on labor costs as well.

In conclusion, polyleveling is a superior method of concrete leveling compared to traditional mudjacking. With its precision, speed, cleanliness, environmental friendliness, strength, and cost-efficiency, it is the clear choice for homeowners and contractors looking for a reliable and effective way to level concrete slabs.  Our site can provide more information on the process and benefits of polyleveling.
