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.
