There are two different ways to approach concrete leveling. There is mudjacking and there is polyurethane lifting.
We like to think of Mudjacking as more of the Flintstones approach. With mudjacking, they pump in mud underneath your sunken concrete. The mix then hardens up underneath your concrete to level it.
Recently, we were hired to come in and correct a mudjacking job. In this video you can see the product they used to pump the uneven patio hardened up and the slab ended up back in it’s old sunken state:
The mudjacking product distorted the property, and rendered the patio unusable.
When we go in with polyurethane, which is a new form, I call it the Jetsons approach. We’re going in with 100% liquid A/B product. When the product touches itself, it mixes and raises within 15 seconds. It is water resistant and is a close cell process, (meaning that nothing is ever going to irritate it). We, at Mr. Level, believe it is the best way to go for concrete leveling.

The job (pictured above) would have cost this couple $4500 to replace it. For a fraction of the cost, Mr. Level was able to repair it using polyurethane concrete leveling.
