Sidewalk Lifting and Leveling in Kansas City & St. Louis, MO

Sidewalk and Walkway leveling by PolyjackingUneven sidewalks and walkways may seem like a minor problem, but they can be a serious safety concern due to the tripping hazard that they create. These uneven and cracked sidewalks can depreciate the value of your home, also.

There are several factors that contribute to uneven sidewalks and walkways in the Kansas City, St. Louis, MO area such as:

  • Settlement: Improperly compacted soil under the sidewalk or walkway can create settlement over time causing the concrete to sink.
  • Soil erosion:  Heavy rainfall can cause concrete to crack or buckle.
  • Thermal expansion: Concrete expands during hot weather conditions, and contracts in cold weather. These inconsistent weather patterns create cracks in the sidewalk. Sidewalks can also be affected by freeze and thaw winter cycles by creating movement and cracks.
  • Tree or shrub roots: Maturing trees or shrubs can grow under the sidewalk, causing the concrete to disintegrate. This creates openings and gaps that allow other plants to grow in the existing cracks. To prevent this problem, trees should not be planted too close to sidewalks.
  • Heavy traffic: Heavy vehicles or heavy traffic on the sidewalk or walkway weakens them creating cracks on the surface over time.

If you find that you have uneven or cracked sidewalks or walkways around your St. Louis or Kansas City, MO home or business, let the experts at Polyjacking.com, a division of Pro Foundation Technology, give you a free inspection and offer you the solution for your sidewalk or walkway repair needs.

Solutions for Sidewalk and Walkway Leveling and Lifting

sidewalk and walkway repair for residents in kansas cityThe experts at Polyjacking.com use the process of polyjacking to lift and level sidewalks and walkways. This process involves injecting high-density polyurethane foam into the affected area. This is a relatively simple, quick process that is faster than other sidewalk leveling methods. With the right poly equipment and trucks, the installation process involves:

  • A 5/8" hole is drilled into the affected area.
  • Polyurethane foam is injected into the void. The foam expands and fills in the void. This helps lift the sidewalk back to its original without replacing it.
  • After the injection process, all holes are filled in and the equipment is removed.
  • The polyurethane foam hardens within minutes, allowing the sidewalk to be used immediately.

We use polyurethane foam because it offers unlimited benefits such as:

  • Economical: Polyjacking is 75% cheaper than other concrete leveling methods.
  • Versatility: It can be applied to apartment buildings, shopping malls, sports arenas, libraries, concert halls and other locations.
  • Accuracy: Polyurethane foam precisely lifts the concrete within 10/1000th of an inch.
  • Moisture Barrier: Polyurethane seals concrete cracks and joints to stop water intrusion.
  • Conformability: The foam expands 20 times its liquid volume and moves laterally under the concrete surface. It contours to the size and shape of the voids providing 100% coverage.
  • Light-weight: Polyurethane only adds 3-5 pounds per cubic foot to the sub base to prevent stress to the soil.
  • Structural support: Because our experts drill small holes into the affected area, this helps support and maintain the structure of the concrete.
