Concrete Leveling in Houston, Texas
Having un-level concrete at your home or commercial location isn't just an eyesore, but it can also be dangerous. Guests to your location could potentially trip over the sinking concrete surface and fall or injure themselves. Then, you are liable for their damages. To prevent these problems, you can get the damaged concrete surface repaired by a team of professionals.
Our crew of trained, knowledgeable, and skilled concrete experts can provide you with professional polyjacking services. This involves raising the concrete back to the level where it needs to be - all without any messy excavation work or expensive total slab replacement.
Polyjacking vs Mudjacking and Slabjacking
This process is similar to mudjacking and slabjacking. However, there are several big differences between the techniques. Polyjacking makes use of a polyurethane foaming material whereas slabjacking and mudjacking make use of a concrete slurry mix.
The materials are inserted into drilled openings in the damaged concrete slab. With polyjacking, since a foaming agent is being used, tiny holes are all that is needed. However, with mud or slabjacking, bigger holes are needed to make sure that the mix is able to get underneath the slab. This can be really messy, and the holes can be difficult to patch over and it is tough to make them even with the rest of the concrete's surface.

The Polyjacking Process
Below are outlined the steps used in the polyjacking process:
1. Surface of the damaged concrete is thoroughly cleaned off so that dirt and debris can't get inside during the repair process.
2. Small holes are drilled into the concrete, about 5/8" in size.
3. The polyurethane foaming material is injected into the holes and it is able to fill up the entire void beneath the concrete surface.
4. The surface of the concrete is raised because of the foaming agent below, and it is made level once again.
5. The holes are filled in and patched over so that they match with the rest of the concrete surface.
6. Since the polyurethane foam cures quickly, you are able to drive or walk over the concrete within a short amount of time - typically between 15-20 minutes.

Along with fixing your sinking and sagging concrete slabs, we can also provide you with professional foundation repair work. As a homeowner, you will know if you have a problem with the base of your house's structure if you notice any of the following warning signs of a problem: interior and exterior wall cracks, floor cracks, noticeable sinking of one or more sides of the home, bowing walls in the basement, windows and doors are difficult to open or close, trim or molding appears to be misaligned, gaps form around window and door frames.
We can fix issues with foundation settlement, and this is a common structural problem that is typically caused from poor soil conditions around a home. When you have a sinking foundation, we can take care of the issue with the installation of our durable piering products. Our piers can be installed fast and with minimal excavation required. The piers will be able to keep the home's foundation walls stable and in place so that no additional sinking occurs.
We can also fix bowing basement walls that are caused from excessive hydrostatic pressure in the soil. When it rains, the earth quickly absorbs the moisture and swells up. This results in a lot of pressure being placed on your basement walls. Eventually, the pressure ends up being too much and it will cause the wall to lean into the home. This can be fixed with the use of wall anchors. The anchors are installed in the earth next to the damaged wall and a plate is installed on the damaged wall inside of the home. The two are connected with a strong steel rod which can be tightened over time to provide the necessary lateral pressure for the wall to prevent any additional leaning. Over time, it will actually help to straighten the wall back into position.
