When homeowners begin to notice their front steps shifting to one side, their driveway becoming uneven, or even their patio furniture beginning to lean, they may be facing a sinking concrete problem.
Many times, various factors underneath concrete can create issues that cause the concrete to begin to sink. These issues are hard to ignore as uneven concrete can not only create safety hazards but also bring down the aesthetic value of the home.
For years, homeowners seeking concrete leveling in Kansas City, MO have often opted for the older mudjacking repair method, which can be costly and requires more time and manpower to complete.
The PolyLift™ system used by Olshan Foundation Repair is an affordable and long-lasting solution for concrete slabs that are out of level, about to crack, or have already cracked.
The old method of lifting and leveling concrete was called “mudjacking,” but modern techniques and technologies have made this process much faster.
Our PolyLift™ system is not only more affordable than mudjacking, but it also works in minutes instead of days, without leaving all of the mess.

What Causes Uneven Concrete?
There are a variety of factors that can cause concrete to settle and become uneven or cracked. However, there are five main causes of concrete cracking and settling:
- Water saturation
- Dry soil conditions
- Poor compaction of dirt
- Tree roots
- Animal and pest influence
Whatever the cause, uneven concrete or cracking concrete can create a serious tripping hazard either within or outside the home.
Repairing uneven or cracked concrete immediately upon noticing it is important and vital to ensure the problem doesn’t get worse over time.
The PolyLift™ Concrete Leveling System
In minutes, PolyLift™ gently raises sunken concrete with little to no mess using industrial-strength concrete leveling foam.
Through a simple process, it levels almost any type of uneven concrete by injecting a long-lasting, environmentally safe polyurethane mixture beneath the concrete.
The PolyLift™ System has minimal impact on the structural integrity of a concrete slab.
Additionally, installation can be completed in minutes in many cases, and our work area is cleaned and tiny injection holes are patched immediately.
Benefits Of PolyLift™ System
To understand all the benefits of the PolyLift™ system, we must first understand the concrete leveling process of mudjacking.
Mainly, our PolyLift™ system is used as a cheaper, quicker, and less invasive alternative to mudjacking.
But what really is mudjacking?
Mudjacking is a concrete leveling technique that involves pumping mud underneath a driveway, building, or another area of sunken or cracked concrete.
This involves drilling holes into the sunken concrete slabs, pumping mud into the holes, and then allowing the mud to harden. Mudjacking requires a hydraulic pump that pushes the mud mixture into holes drilled into the slab.
This process over the years has been deemed to be an outdated concrete leveling process, as it relies on underlying soils to support the lifted concrete. However, relying on the underlying soil results in the concrete eventually sinking again as the soil will be affected by environmental factors like water and freezing temperatures.
The PolyLift™ System is an updated and long-lasting concrete lifting treatment in Kansas City.
The benefits of using the PolyLift™ System for concrete leveling can include, but are not limited to:
- Quick & Efficient – A PolyLift™ treatment can often be completed in less than 30 minutes for simple fixes. Compared to mudjacking, the PolyLift™ System takes less than a day to dry, which allows homeowners to return to normal use in their homes as quickly as possible.
- Minimal Disruption – Sometimes the mudjacking process can damage the landscaping and other areas surrounding the home. The PolyLift™ System does not disturb any landscaping or the surrounding areas of the home.
- Simple Process – Mudjacking often requires large crews, loud noises, and unsightly excavation, and sometimes these projects can last for a week or more. However, with the PolyLift™ System, the process is quiet, uncrowded, and doesn’t require creating a large worksite. Homeowners are able to carry on with their day without interruption, and businesses can operate as normal while concrete leveling is taking place.
- Eco-Friendly – When the PolyLift™ System is used, 39-49% of materials used are renewable and recycled. There is little to no waste when polyurethane is used for concrete lifting.
- Modern Technology – Mudjacking is considered to be an outdated concrete lifting process. The PolyLift™ method uses new technology that is more affordable, less invasive, and long-lasting.
PolyLift™ concrete leveling is faster, cleaner and more affordable compared to outdated mudjacking methods. It’s great for both Residential & Commercial applications.

Reviews of Olshan’s Concrete Leveling Services Near You
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My garage and driveway was sinking and I wanted to address the issues before they worsened. I found Olshan from reviews and scheduled an appointment for an estimate. Rob came out and reviewed the work I wanted completed and gave me an estimate for polyurethane concrete lifting as a solution to my issue. Henry and Baplo were able to raise up the concrete in the garage and driveway with the poly. They cleaned up the area perfect after they were complete. The whole process only took a couple hours to complete. Olshan does impress work and I highly recommend them if you need any work completed on your home, garage or driveway.”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “My mom had SO many issues with water in her basement. We called Olshan, and it was a GREAT decision. From the initial evaluation with Venson, to the installation with Gabriel and his team. Everyone in this company is EXTREMELY responsive. That’s important, and not found in many businesses these days. Venson contacted me by phone and email prior to our consultation to confirm the date and time. On the day of the consultation, he called when he was on his way and gave us an ETA. After a quick evaluation, he reviewed a few options with us and gave us the pros and cons of each option. He also discussed payment methods with us. Paying cash or credit is simple. Or, if you prefer to finance, the application process is quick and easy. He scheduled the installation of our water lock system and sump pump, but remained available by phone and text to answer any questions we may have between that time and the installation.
On the day of installation, the same courtesy was extended by Gabriel and his team. Prior to their arrival, they called and gave us their ETA. Gabriel walked me through the project before his team got started. Gabriel and his team, Gerardo, Raul, and Jose, got right to work. We had failed to remove some sheetrock prior to the installation, but Gabriel and his team spoke with me about that. I was ready to get a hammer and clear it out for them, but they neither hesitated, nor complained about adding that task to the list. I felt bad, but, they just got to work and got the job done. The team worked diligently throughout the day, and they kept me informed. During various phases of the project, they gave me the opportunity to check the work and see what the process was. Upon completion, Gabriel reviewed the entire project with me and demonstrated the operation of the sump pump. The crew cleaned up the work space very nicely and took great care in making sure that the space was wiped down and cleaned up when the project was complete. They even pulled their truck forward a bit before leaving and picked up a few rocks in the driveway that had come from the gravel bags on the truck. No stone was left unturned, and I am confident that we made the right choice for our repair.
Start to finish, the process was flawless. Venson, Gabriel, Gerardo, Raul, and Jose were punctual, efficient, and professional. I highly recommend this company!”

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “Olshan performed foundation repair work on my parent’s home that my siblings and I had to coordinate from start to finish due our parents being elderly and limited by several medical conditions. From the consultation and estimate provided by Heath to the actual completion of the work provided by Jose, Irbin, Chinchilla and Gabriel, my siblings and I were both impressed and appreciative of Ohlshan’s professionalism, patience and willingness to explain things to us (sometimes more than once) so we could pass the information to our parents clearly and answer each and every one of their questions along the way. The carbon fiber strips, wall shield, water lock and J-drain have all seemed to stop the water from entering my parent’s basement and arrested the cracks we found in their foundation. Thanks Olshan for the great work and for being a trustworthy company to work with!?
