How does mudjacking work?
Mudjacking, also known as Slabjacking, is a process that raises sunken concrete back to its original level. This unique process will restore sunken or uneven concrete slabs close to their original grade and alignment with surrounding concrete slabs.
A number of 2″ holes are drilled in the sunken concrete. A slurry is pumped through the holes. When the void under the sunken concrete is filled with the mixture, the concrete will raise. The holes are patched with grout and the surface is ready to use.
What are the advantages of mudjacking?
The cost of mudjacking averages a fraction of the cost of replacement. Mudjacking is eco-friendly, fast, clean, cost-effective solution that keeps concrete slabs out of land fills.
What are the benefits of concrete leveling over concrete replacement?
The cost of leveling usually represents a savings of 60% to 75% below the cost of concrete replacement. The leveling process can be completed and ready for use in a matter of hours. Municipal building permits are not required.
Can any concrete be raised or leveled?
Generally, yes. However when large areas have crumbled or deteriorated, replacing the concrete slab may be a better option.
How much does mudjacking cost?
The cost varies by the size, condition and amount the concrete has fallen. One thing that is for sure is that it is always cheaper than replacing.
