Polyjacking


polyjacking-graphic-pft2With the ever changing weather that occurs in the Kansas City, KS area, the concrete around your home or business can be affected. This is due to the expansive soil beneath the concrete that heaves when it gets wet and shrinks when it is dry. Voids in the soil beneath the concrete will cause the concrete to sink and settle. As your soil is constantly moving, so is your concrete. This causes it to crack and become unlevel. Not only is this unsightly, but it can become a tripping hazard. View our polyjacking.com website for more information.

Some of the more common areas that are usually affected are:

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

Pro Foundation Technology uses polyjacking to lift and level your concrete. First, we use a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) to detect where the voids are beneath the concrete, then we inject high-density polyurethane foam into the affected concrete. Polyurethane foam expands 20 times its liquid volume as it moves laterally beneath the pavement filling all voids. This foam contours to the size and shape of the void. This will ensure 100% coverage. Polyjacking is a great alternative to mudjacking, which we also offer. Both of these methods will lift and level your concrete.

Benefits of Polyjacking

Polyjacking has many advantages over other methods of concrete repair. Some of these advantages are:

  1. Excellent coverage: within 1/32 of an inch
  2. Waterproofs walls
  3. Up to 250 psi compressive & tensile strength
  4. Will not shrink
  5. Repels water
  6. Doesn’t stress the concrete
  7. Small injection holes (5/8″)
  8. Extreme lifting capability
  9. Lightweight: 125-250 pounds per yard will not overburden the soil (mudjacking is about 2,500 lbs per yard).
  10. Used by DOTs for over 30 years on highways and bridge approaches.
  11. Sub-seals floors
  12. Eco-friendly
  13. Cost-effective

Polyurethane foam has a fast curing time, so you will be able to use your concrete immediately after the repair is done. Polyjacking is much more cost effective than replacing concrete. It is also much less disruptive.
