You recently bought a building you want to use as a new and used car, truck and van sales center. You have visions of inserting your business logo pattern into the polished concrete. However, the showroom floor is sagging, cracking and broken in some places.
You had thought about leveling it and adding tiles. Then, a friend suggested that you use polished concrete to save money, and you can add your logo, too; but the issue of drooping concrete still exists, as does the fractured and damaged concrete floor. What can you do about that?
Why Not to Choose Mudjacking
Mudjacking will cost you less, and it is quicker in some cases than polyurethane floor lifting. However, there are two distinct concerns you should consider before you decide to mud jack your concrete floor.
The fact that mudjacking requires a long drying time might not be an issue if you are not in a hurry, but there is a genuine risk of further damaging the floor, and mudjacking might not reach some areas.
The most significant issue is that you might not find that out until you drive a vehicle onto it and it cracks or breaks again. After spending the money to get your concrete floor polished with a tile pattern or another choice, and the logo added, you do not want the floor to crack or break because the mud jack material didn’t completely reach every area underneath the floor to create a solid base.
Choose a Polyurethane Concrete Floor Lift Instead
When you choose polyurethane to lift your concrete floor, the trained and certified professionals at Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repairs will provide you with a longer-lasting, stable platform that you can trust to bear weight and last. Now you can feel free to spend the money to polish the floor and add your logo.
Plus, you can make up the price differential because polyurethane will last for many years after you would have had to redo the mudjacking, as the lifespan for that is only two to five years. Call Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair for a free, no-obligation estimate today.
