Mudjacking | Concrete Leveling | Concrete Raising
Why concrete sinks...
Fill dirt is almost always placed along side of house and garage foundations after the foundation work is completed. This fills in voids created during the foundation construction process. Rarely does a builder take the time to compact this dirt.
Soils consist of solid particles and the spaces (voids) between these particles. However, void spaces in soil can cause big problems for buildings and concrete slabs. Concentrated loads, such as buildings or slabs can literally squeeze air and water from soils. When this happens, the soil sinks and the buildings or slabs follow closely behind.
Mudjacking / Concrete Lifting
We drill strategically placed holes into the slab. Using a portable pump and flexible hoses we fill these holes with the special mixture. Lifting a slab using this method can often be accomplished in a few hours.
There are numerous benefits to concrete lifting.
