Basement Slab Leveling

Basement slab leveling in Kansas City and St. LouisThe soil in the Kansas City and St. Louis, MO area is expansive soil. This type of soil expands when it is wet and shrinks when it is dry. Because of this constant shifting of the soil, the foundation of your home or business also shifts and the basement can sink into the voids created by this shifting soil. You may have obvious signs that this is occurring due to your basement slab not being level. However, there are other signs that your basement slab has shifted and settled. Some of these signs are:

  • Sloping floors
  • Leaning chimney
  • Doors and windows that stick
  • Floor, wall, and ceiling cracks
  • Cracks in brick or concrete stairs

If you notice any of these signs that your basement slab has shifted or settled, it is important to contact

Basement Slab Leveling Solutions

The method of polyjacking is the injection of high-density polyurethane foam into the affected area that needs to be lifted and leveled. This polyurethane foam expands to fill the voids completely and the basement slab is lifted and leveled to its original level. The method of polyjacking is relatively simple. We use reliable polyurethane trucks and the right poly equipment to make the installation process quick and easy.
  1. A small 5/8" hole is drilled into the affected area of the basement slab.
  2. High-density polyurethane foam is injected into the hole.
  3. The foam expands to fill the entire void.
  4. As the foam expands, the basement slab is lifted and stabilized.
  5. The holes are filled and the site is cleaned up.
  6. Due to the fast curing time, the basement slab is ready for use about 15 minutes after the repair is completed.
  7. Polyurethane is water-resistant so it will hold up for years to come

Don't let your sinking basement slab be ignored. The longer you wait to get the repair done, the more damage that will occur not only to the basement slab, but throughout the entire commercial or residential structure.
