Commercial properties in Pennsylvania or New York with an uneven, sunken, or sagging concrete surface can be a significant problem for the property owner. Not only does it look unattractive, but it also decreases property value and can turn away foot traffic.

That's why Midstate Basement Authorities offers commercial concrete leveling services to NY and PA commercial entities.

Fixing a concrete slab starts by removing gravel beneath your settled concrete, removing as much of the excess dirt and debris as possible. After that, we drill a hole into the top of the slab where it needs to be raised, followed by installing hydraulic jacks, which are adjustable.
Our concrete leveling process begins by adding polyurethane foam or mud to the holes. Next, we pump the jacks with hydraulic fluid, which lifts your foundation slab. Once the mud or foam jacking finishes, we complete the process with pressure testing after injecting more urethane foam under your slab until it reaches the desired height.

Often, projects will require high-density polyurethane concrete raising. With poly-jacking, we inject a lightweight, cementitious grout into the area where your pavement has settled to bring it back to grade. Once injected, the foam expands to fill the void and stabilize the concrete slab. One of the main advantages of poly-jacking In most cases, our contractors complete commercial concrete leveling projects within 24 hours.
To help clients better visualize a timeline, here's how it works:
1. First, we remove the gravel from beneath your uneven pavement and clean the surface of any excess dirt or debris.
2. Using a drill, we create a hole at the raising point on your concrete slab, then install adjustable hydraulic jacks by pumping fluid into them.
3. Once placed, we inject the lightweight, cementitious grout into your settling concrete through these holes.
4. Once injected, the foam will expand to fill the void and stabilize your settling slab. We then pressure-test it until we have reached the desired height.
5. Finally, we fill any remaining holes with a polyurethane-based foam and then sweep the entire surface for a clean finish.
In conclusion, by using Poly-jacking to level your concrete, you can expect high-quality results without the long wait time typically associated with traditional methods like mud-jacking.
For those who prefer a tried-and-true method, we offer commercial concrete leveling services using mud jacking. During this process, we drill holes around your pavement and inject a mixture of cement and sand under the slab, which helps raise it back up to its original position. The process is complete when all the holes are filled, and the slab has reached its desired height.
Again, to visualize this process, we've outlined the process timeline below:
1. First, we remove the excess gravel from under your uneven pavement and clean the surface of any dirt or debris to ensure a smooth leveling process.
2. We then drill holes around your concrete slab using a specialized mud-jacking machine before injecting cement and sand.
3. Once all the holes are filled, we pressure-test your concrete until it has reached its desired height. We then ensure that we maintain its water tightness throughout the project.
Once complete, our team may fill the remaining holes with a polyurethane-based foam and then sweep the surface to ensure a clean finish. Since polyurethane foam is a bit pricier than mud-jacking, this step depends on the initial mutually agreed-upon plan of the client proprietor and contractor.
Although mud-jacking takes longer to complete than our poly-jacking services, it is still a very affordable and effective method. So if you're interested in tackling your project using this method, continue reading to learn about some of the steps involved:
Concrete leveling costs vary greatly depending on factors such as leveling method, the project's location, the scope of work, or whether there should be a replacement slab rather than a leveling job. For example, the total commercial concrete patio leveling cost will be much cheaper than that of a slab with extensive damage.
Here are some rough concrete leveling cost guidelines to give you an idea of what to expect in terms of budgeting:
At the end of the day, whether you choose mud-jacking or poly-jacking, commercial concrete leveling is an affordable and effective way to restore your concrete to its original state.
