Raising Concrete Slabs Kansas City Missouri
A great alternative to repairing or replacing concrete slabs is to lift concrete, also known as slab sledding or concrete leveling. There is a high demand for concrete leveling and concrete lifting.
The process of lifting concrete by mudjacking (also referred to as slab buoyancy or polyurethane concrete buoyancy) is similar, but differs in the materials that are pumped in. Through holes in the concrete slab, mud or other material (polyurethane or foam) is pumped into the slab and the cavities in the slab are filled to lift the slab. The holes are then patched with a concrete mixture to complete the process.
Concrete leveling can be invasive when working in residential and commercial applications. When repairing foundations in the Midwest, we use PolyLevel (r) to lift lighter weight and less disturbance concrete slabs into a leveling position than traditional methods of sludge and slab lifting.
We pump polyurethane with a 2-piece high density foam by means of incremental injection into concrete slabs. Polylevel flows like water to fill small cracks and crevices in the ground.
In civil engineering, concrete leveling is a procedure that attempts to correct an uneven concrete surface by altering the foundation that the surface sits upon.
Self-leveling concrete has polymer-modified cement that has high flow characteristics and, in contrast to traditional concrete, does not require the addition of excessive amounts of water for placement.
A driveway is a type of private road for local access to one or a small group of structures, and is owned and maintained by an individual or group. Driveways rarely have traffic lights, but some that bear heavy traffic, especially those leading to commercial businesses and parks, do.
A sidewalk, pavement, footpath, or footway, is a path along the side of a road. Usually constructed of concrete or asphalt, it is designed for pedestrians. A sidewalk may accommodate moderate changes in grade and is normally separated from the vehicular section by a curb.
Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement that hardens over time. Concrete is the second-most-used substance in the world after water, and is the most widely used building material.
