Mudjacking vs. POLYcrete: Choosing the Right Concrete Repair Method

When it comes to repairing broken or sinking concrete, there are various methods available. Two common techniques are mudjacking and POLYcrete. Let's explore the differences between these methods and why POLYcrete offers superior results for concrete leveling.

Mudjacking, also known as slabjacking, is a traditional method used to lift and level concrete. It involves injecting a cement mixture or "mud" under the sunken concrete to raise it back to its original position. While mudjacking may initially seem like a cost-effective solution, it comes with drawbacks. The process requires heavy equipment, including pumps and drills, as well as a nearly 2-inch hole in your concrete to pump the mixture through. This can result in significant disruption and damage to your property. Furthermore, mudjacking repairs often fall short in terms of long-term durability and guarantees, as the cement mixture used may erode or break down over time.

On the other hand, POLYcrete offers a more advanced and effective approach to concrete repairs. Instead of cement, polyurethane materials are used in the POLYcrete process. These materials are lightweight, permanent, and resistant to erosion and degradation. By injecting the polyurethane mixture, we can lift and level your concrete without adding excessive weight. Moreover, the repair process requires only a dime-sized hole, which is hardly noticeable once the patching is complete. This ensures a cleaner and more aesthetically pleasing result.

Another advantage of choosing POLYcrete is the less invasive equipment used during the installation. We can complete the concrete lifting process using extension hoses, minimizing the need to drag heavy equipment through your yard or home. This reduces disruption and potential damage to your property.

When it comes to concrete repairs, it's crucial to consider long-term durability, cost-effectiveness, and minimal disruption. With its lightweight and permanent polyurethane materials, along with its minimally invasive process, POLYcrete stands as the superior choice for concrete leveling.
