Concrete Lifting vs Replacement
Concrete lifting, also known as concrete leveling, mudjacking, or slabjacking, easily lifts sinking concrete to eliminate tripping hazards and cosmetic eye sores. Walkways, sidewalks, driveways, concrete steps, patios, mailboxes and garage floors can all be easily lifted and made level again for less than half the cost of concrete replacement. Concrete lifting saves time and money by eliminating the need for demolition and disposing of old material, minimizing preparation time, and taking little to no time to clean-up the affected area.
Most installations take just a couple of hours to complete and the material cures within minutes, so you have full access to your leveled concrete space within one day! The process concrete leveling involves minimal displacement of surrounding material to ensure a quick clean up and avoid disturbing existing structures and landscaping.
Concrete lifting is also an eco-friendly solution as it allows existing concrete to be leveled with no need to dispose of old materials and avoids wasted excess material as our materials are mixed on site and used as needed. The same process used for lifting concrete can be used as a preventative measure by filling voids beneath the concrete caused by settling or collapsible soil before the concrete settles and possibly breaks. Concrete lifting is a guaranteed solution that will restore the safety and functionality of your concrete surfaces.
How We Lift Sinking Concrete
Mudjacking, also known as “slab jacking” or “pressure grouting”, is a concrete lifting process that is done by injecting material beneath the concrete until it is lifted back into a level position. Mudjacking uses a grout mixture to fill voids beneath concrete and then uses additional grout to push the concrete slab upward to create a level surface.
Similar to mudjacking, “poly jacking” is a concrete lifting process that is done by injecting a two-part polyurethane mixture beneath the concrete slab. When the two parts are combined it creates a rapid expansion of foam that lifts concrete in the same way that mudjacking does. Polyurethane injections are quickly becoming the industry standard as it causes less cosmetic damage to the concrete and uses lighter weight materials than traditional mudjacking. Both methods are guaranteed solutions to level concrete and are more cost effective than concrete replacement.
