Concrete Problems

Concrete repair Kansas City MOConcrete problems in the Kansas City area are common due to the many climate changes during the year. The soil in this region of the United States is expansive soil which means that when it is wet, it expands and when it is dry it shrinks. This shifting of the soil causes the concrete that is sitting on this soil to shift and settle.

Some of the main areas around your home or business that are most affected by this shifting and settling are:

  • Sidewalks
  • Garage floors
  • Steps
  • Driveways
  • Pool slabs
  • Slab homes
  • Patios
  • Retaining walls

If you notice cracks in your concrete or that your concrete is not level, it is important to have an expert come and inspect it and offer you the best solution for concrete repair.  The experts and Pro Foundation Technology has the products and experience to get your concrete repaired without replacing it. This method, polyjacking, is a much more cost-effective method than replacing concrete.

Concrete Repair Solutions

Pro Foundation Technology uses polyjacking to get your concrete back to its original level and keep it that way for many years to come. Polyjacking is a method of injecting high-density polyurethane foam into the affected concrete through a small 5/8″ hole that is drilled into the concrete. This polyurethane foam expands 20 times its liquid volume as it moves beneath the concrete, filling all of the voids. It also contours to the size and shape of the void. This method has many advantages over other methods of concrete repair. Some of these advantages are:

  • More efficient
  • Less disruption
  • More accurate
  • Higher durability
  • Conformability
  • Compaction ability
  • Lighter weight
  • Moisture resistant
  • Better structural integrity

Polyurethane foam adds strength to the soil beneath the concrete so you won’t have concrete problems in the future. Polyjacking is a more preferred method than mudjacking. Mudjacking is a cement, mud mixture. The holes that need to be drilled for mudjacking are much larger and this method is less durable. Mudjacking weighs much more than polyurethane foam, adding stress to the soil below. Polyurethane foam cures very quickly so your concrete can be used immediately after the repair is done.
