Concrete Grinding Vs. Leveling

When repairing your concrete driveway and sidewalk, there are a few methods homeowners can turn to for fast and easy leveling, rather than replacing it entirely. Mudjacking, as previously discussed, doesn’t have the long-term guarantee of other concrete leveling methods. That leaves homeowners with the options of concrete grinding or leveling. Understand the difference between these two concrete repair methods, and why concrete leveling with polyurethane foam is the best option for homeowners.

What is Concrete Grinding?

Concrete grinding destroys the appearance of sidewalk.

Concrete grinding is a process of using an abrasive tool to grind rough concrete surfaces to reveal a smooth and shiny surface. It’s commonly used by homeowners to repair concrete surfaces like driveways and sidewalks. 

The problem with grinding concrete as a repair solution, though, is purely cosmetic. If you want to improve the look and value of your property, concrete grinding won’t match your existing concrete. Grinded concrete is a different color, as it reveals bright concrete underneath that will never match the appearance of the adjacent concrete surfaces. When considering the appearance of your property, homeowners rely on Mr. Level’s polyurethane concrete leveling method

Concrete Leveling with Polyurethane

Concrete leveling with polyurethane preserves the appearance of driveway.

Polyurethane concrete leveling is a method that uses the concrete slab itself as a means of delivering the foam to raise concrete, fill voids, and stabilize soil. In addition to appearance, there are many advantages to using polyurethane as a concrete repair method, including:

  • ½ the cost of concrete replacement

  • Repaired in hours with a quick cure time

  • Doesn’t damage the surrounding landscape

  • Preserves the appearance of your concrete

  • Tiny drill hole about the size of a dime

  • Can immediately be driven and/or walked on
