Concrete Repair Near Dallas

Concrete repair comes in many forms. Issues can include sidewalks, driveways, porch steps and patios. When these areas sink and settle, they crack and become uneven. For homeowners, this is a hazardous problem. Aside from taking away from your home's curb appeal, damaged concrete becomes easy to trip and fall on.

Many companies use mudjacking to correct uneven and cracking concrete, but it's not a permanent solution. The expert team at Vesta Foundation Solutions of Texas has a faster, less-invasive repair method that's more effective called PolyLevel®.

Why We Don't Use Mudjacking

Over time, concrete will sink into weak soil and develop pockets that don't have any support. To repair settling issues, we have to fill the space under it to lift it back into place. Traditionally, repair experts use mudjacking. This method of concrete leveling pumps a mortar-based slurry under the concrete to raise it.

The problem with mudjacking is that it's only a temporary fix. Because the mixture itself is just as heavy as the soil under it, it will eventually sink back down. Plus, the mixture is soft and susceptible to wash out from weather elements.

Mudjacking vs. Polyurethane Foam Injection

Vesta Foundation Solutions of Texas offers a fast, effective, and less invasive approach to concrete leveling with PolyLevel®. Our solution injects an expanding polymer foam to lift the concrete for a durable, long-lasting fix. Polymer foam provides the same lifting effect as mudjacking but hardens, making it highly durable and permanent. Because it's lightweight, the foam will not sink again as the mudjacking mixture will.
