Whether you're managing a property or hiring someone to manage it, it's important to keep the property for the tenants and the community in decent condition. This means making the necessary concrete repairs, improvements, and inspections in and around the property. If you notice a sunken driveway, sidewalk or damaged concrete floor, get it repaired immediately. These problem areas can cause uneven surfaces, creating a tripping hazard on your property.
So what causes settling concrete? Settling concrete is not rare in Kansas City and St. Louis. The primary causes of sinking concrete are due to weak soils, soil shrinkage or erosion underneath a concrete slab that are unable to support its weight. The good news is that you don't have to live with sunken concrete for your rental properties. Polyjacking.com can lift, level, and underseal concrete by using polyurethane products.
Polyjacking installation involves the following steps:
- 5/8" holes are drilled through the affected concrete.
- Polyurethane is injected through the holes. As polyurethane expands 20 times its liquid volume, it fills in the voids and cavities under the slab. It lifts and levels the concrete to its desired height.
- After the slab is leveled, the holes are patched.
- Polyurethane cures within 15 minutes, allowing the slab to be ready for immediate use. The work area is cleaned up and the equipment is removed.
