Concrete Repair for Sports Arenas
The Kansas City area is rich in sports history. There have been national championship teams and championship title events. These sports arenas not only hold sporting events, but they also host concerts, conventions, expos, and several other events. Since arenas hold thousands of people, making sure the foundation and concrete floor are in proper condition is important. Over time, the concrete in arenas can deteriorate. The need to repair the deteriorated concrete is to protect the public and prevent the property from experiencing damage and failure.
When these sports arenas require concrete floor repair, looking for the least amount of disruption is important. Polyjacking.com has a fast, economical, and effective way to repair and level concrete floors in sports arenas in the Kansas City area. We use a polyurethane foam that is injected into a small hole and fills the voids under the concrete. After this foam is injected, it cures in approximately fifteen minutes and the concrete is ready to be used. There is little disruption and the arena is ready to host an event and people immediately.
Concrete Repair Improves Floors in Sports Arena
Choosing polyjacking for leveling the arena’s concrete floor over replacement decreases downtime and the project is completed in hours instead of days. The polyurethane foam injection is superior over other concrete leveling methods. Polyurethane will never shrink. It has better structural integrity because the injection holes are only 5/8″ in diameter versus 3″ or larger for other concrete lifting methods, such as mudjacking. For the installation process, we use fewer poly trucks compared to mudjacking and other concrete lifting methods.
Polyjacking can be applied to the following applications:
- Pavement Lifting
- Soil Stabilization
- Infrastructure Repair
- Void Filling
- Road leveling
- Sidewalk Leveling
- Warehouse Floor Leveling
- Curb Leveling

Polyurethane Concrete Repair Products
What products do we use to fix your concrete? For over three decades, Polyjacking.com has used polyurethane foam and the proper poly equipment to level basement floors, pool decks, and concrete slabs. Polyurethane foam has been tested to withstand the toughest conditions. It is economical and efficient because it is cheaper than removing and replacing existing concrete. It only takes a few hours for the project to be finished. There is no need for future repairs. The polyurethane foam creates a hydraulic lift that allows us to control the lifting process accurately within 10/1000th of an inch. The foam cures within 15 minutes of injection, so you won’t have to wait days for the foam to cure and you can get back to using the slab almost immediately.
Ground Penetrating Radar
Before we level your concrete, we have to make sure there are no underground voids and objects. We use a Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR). GPR is a signal software with a high-frequency radar antenna to locate underground voids and objects. It is also used to locate utilities, tension cables, tendons, and PVC cables before we start construction. You don’t want to damage any systems that may be located under the slab.
Advantages of Polyurethane Foam
Polyurethane foam is also less disruptive and more durable than other methods, such as mudjacking. Because the curing time is so fast, lanes on a highway can be reopened immediately after the injection process. Nighttime would be the best time of the day to complete this process to minimize disruptions to people that need to use the area. Polyurethane foam is also strong and tough. It is even strong enough for roadway structures. The foam expands beneath the pavement filling every shape and size of all voids.
Polyurethane is a moisture seal barrier, moisture resistant, and lightweight. Also, it offers compaction ability. The base material gets stronger due to the material flowing into the sub-base and combining with soil particles. We choose to use TerraThane™ product line from NCFI because you won’t find a better product on the market today.

Concrete Leveling Advantages with Polyurethane
If you are choosing to do concrete leveling, you will be glad you chose Polyjacking.com. We will use high-density polyurethane concrete and poly equipment for our leveling of your project. It will raise and stabilize any existing slabs permanently and for a lot less money than it would cost you to remove and replace your older concrete.
One thing you can count on with polyjacking is that the polyurethane concrete hardens in minutes, lifting your concrete to just the right level. We don’t have to worry about any shrinkage so our solution will be accurate to within 1/100 of an inch. This mixture expands to 20 times its liquid form and fills in any places that are void of matter.
Another advantage of polyurethane foam is that it mixes with the soil to add strength to the base. For the injection of the polyurethane foam, we will only have to drill holes of 5/8”, this is quite small compared to other options out on the market, such as mudjacking. So the look of your concrete slab is not affected all that much.
Another strength of the polyurethane is that it works in wet conditions by repelling any water. It can seal the underside of a slab, including cracks and joints. This is an effective method to stop water from bleeding into the existing concrete and will also impede other erosion issues.
