Mud Jacking Vs. PolyLevel

You’ve probably heard of both PolyLevel and mud jacking. Both are methods to lift concrete, but which is the right solution. Find out here.


What is mud jacking?

Mud jacking is a concrete lifting technique that uses a mixture of sand, water, and cement. This mixture is often called slurry or mud. The mud mixture is pumped beneath the concrete to lift the slab.


What is PolyLevel?

PolyLevel is a two-part, expanding polymer foam that is injected beneath concrete to lift the slab.



Which method to choose?

Both mud jacking and PolyLevel sound very similar, but there are some stark differences. PolyLevel is an economic and environmentally friendly solution, while mud jacking is invasive. PolyLevel is long-lasting, while mud jacking will deteriorate and settle over time. See below for more comparisons.
