Concrete Leveling in Kansas City Area and Beyond
Concrete settles, and it’s our job at KC Mudjacking & Concrete Repair to fix that! Our concrete leveling services are available to homes and businesses in the Kansas City area and beyond. Your concrete can begin to shift when excessive water soaks into the soil. As this occurs, the concrete surface will begin to move into the void below, which creates cracks, gaps, an uneven surface, sloping, or separation.
What Causes Concrete to Settle?
Settlement is caused by other factors besides excessive water seepage, including dry and hot conditions, plumbing mishaps, and changes within the moisture content. Poor compaction of soil may also play a part in it, which can cause a void to form and cracks to follow. Concrete leveling is imperative when it comes to preventing further damage and replacement costs.
Soil shrinkage can occur during hot and dry weather, as the soil underneath your concrete simply dries since there isn’t enough moisture. When this occurs, a void is created, which can cause cracking of the surface over general stress and time.
The surface of your concrete may suffer if the soil underneath has fluctuating moisture levels. If there is an excess in moisture, the foundation is prone to damage as the soil becomes too weak to hold it up. If the soil has a lower moisture level, shrinkage may occur.
If the soil underneath your concrete is not properly compacted, it can consolidate and form an empty space. Empty spaces can cause cracks and settlements, which will then require complete concrete raising services.

Polyjacking and Mudjacking
Our polyjacking and mudjacking services provide the ultimate solution to your concrete troubles. Concrete leveling restores the functionality of your surfaces, and provides a more cost effective option as opposed to a full replacement.
Mudjacking is completed with a sand and cement mixture–called a slurry–hydraulically pumped underneath the concrete slab. On the other hand, polyjacking involves an injection of a polyurethane material that is more durable and lightweight. Both have incredible concrete raising capabilities and provide a smooth, even surface.
KC Mudjacking & Concrete Repair is available for optimal concrete leveling that restores the look and functionality of your surfaces! To request more information and get started with a consultation, be sure to contact us today.
