Repair Tripping Hazards with Polyjacking
Uneven Concrete and Tripping Hazards
Do you have an uneven concrete sidewalk or walkway on your property? It’s probably a good idea to get it fixed. After all, it will only get worse over time, creating a trip hazard and a serious liability lawsuit. In fact, more cities are mandating leveled sidewalks and requiring homeowners to pay for them.
So what causes uneven concrete? Due to maturing tree roots and weak soils, the majority of concrete slabs will encounter settlement. In many cases, water is the culprit of expansive soil problems. It weakens the soils, causing cracks and settlement underneath the slab. Polyjacking keeps water away from the slab and prevents future settlement.
The professionals at Polyjacking.com can lift and level sunken concrete for the following applications:
- Garage floors
- Pool decks
The concrete raising process involves drilling small 5/8 inch holes in the affected area of the concrete. Polyurethane is pumped into the drill holes. The polyfoam expands and fills in voids under the slab. Finally, the slab is raised back to its original position and the holes are patched. Since polyurethane cures within 15 minutes, the area is ready for traffic the same day and your liability is gone.
Concrete Leveling Prevents Trip Hazards
Tripping hazards can occur on any uneven concrete surface at universities, schools, hospitals, businesses, and just about any other property. With polyjacking, injuries can be prevented to reduce liability. Contact Polyjacking.com for effective concrete leveling in the Kansas City and St. Louis area.
