Do you long for your sunken patio to be returned to its former glory? Do you wish your concrete pool deck did not pose a health risk to guests? The imperfections of indoor spaces become more apparent as kids spend time running around the basement due to cold outdoor temperatures.

Winter is right around the corner, and with it brings the snow and freezing rain. While many of us look forward to this time of year, it also brings with it its fair share of work and worry. As you start going through your checklist, making sure youre ready for the season, one thing you should make a point to inspect is the concrete in your drive or walkway.

Mudjacking and polyurethane offer solutions to uneven concrete without replacement. But what is the difference between the two methods? Why would you choose one over the other? Lets take a look.

A specialized hydraulic pump pushes the mud mix into small holes drilled in the slabs. This method is the traditional way to fix cracked, sinking and uneven concrete. With the polyurethane option, specialized polyurethane foam is used in place of the mud. The foam expands after filling the holes drilled in the concrete slab. As the material expands, the concrete is lifted. Which is the Better Choice?
