PolyLevel® is a superior alternative to mudjacking — it's less invasive and more environmentally friendly!

Uneven driveways, walkways, patios, and concrete steps aren't just an eyesore. They also create a dangerous tripping hazard on your Albany property. One way to repair sinking concrete slabs is standard mud jacking.

What is mud jacking? Mudjacking — also called slab jacking and grout pumping — is a repair technique for raising concrete slabs with a mortar-based mix. It involves pumping a mixture of soil, water, sand, and Portland cement under settling concrete. The substance is called "slurry" and cures to become a solid fill, lifting sunken concrete.

The problems with mud jacking: Despite its populariy, mud jacking is not the best solution in all circumstances. For heavy concrete structures, mud jacking is appropriate when it's used with slab piers, not as its own solution.

Traditional mudjacking is messy when it comes to sunken concrete slabs. It also involves on-site mixing, drilling large holes, and can take hours or even days to cure completely, deeming concrete unusable.

The PolyLevel® solution

Adirondack Basement Systems offers a fast, effective, and less invasive approach to concrete leveling with PolyLevel®. The PolyLevel® system involves injecting an expanding polymer foam under the concrete for a durable, long-lasting solution.

Advantages of PolyLevel® concrete lifting & leveling

The benefits of PolyLevel® injectable polymer when compared to traditional mud jacking:

  • Greater precision & accuracy: Metered, spaced-out injections ensure that the lifting power of PolyLevel® is carefully controlled. We can even adjust the chemical composition of our injection for further precision.
  • Environmentally friendly & strengthens underlying soil: PolyLevel® does not release harmful chemicals into the soil. On the contrary, PolyLevel® strengthens underlying soil so concrete won't sink down the road, further protecting your investment.
  • Stronger & less invasive solution: PolyLevel® is a lightweight foam, but it can support heavy loads and provide greater power than alternative concrete lifting methods. You'll experience greater lifting power than with traditional mud jacking, with less invasive equipment and far less disruption to your daily life.
  • Cures almost immediately: PolyLevel® takes just minutes to cure, while mud jacking takes hours or days. With PolyLevel® by Adirondack Basement Systems, you may resume driving, walking, and other use of your concrete almost immediately.
  • More natural appearance from smaller injection sites: Mud jacking leaves substantial holes in concrete, creating an unfinished look that is highly visible on concrete slabs. PolyLevel® needs less than an inch per injection. Maintain the beauty of your pool deck, garage floor or driveway with smaller, less invasive injections.
