Concrete raising is a term used to do exactly that – raise concrete. This is also referred to in many different terms – mudjacking, slabjacking, concrete lifting … and so on. These terms refer to the method of raising concrete to match an existing grade, thus eliminating trip hazards, drainage problems, sunken concrete areas, and improving general aesthetics of concrete slabs.
Mudjacking lifts sunken concrete by injecting a slurry beneath the slab, stabilizing the slab and leveling it to the desired grade. The mixture flows beneath the slab, filling the void that caused the sinking. The void is filled with the slurry, the slab is raised and leveled, and as a result is more stable than it was before. The repair is done quickly, often with little or no mess, and the slab can be used again within hours – not days!
SUNKEN CONCRETE CAN CAUSE NUMBEROUS PROBLEMS
Trip hazards, ponding or pooling of water, improper drainage, unsightly walkways, etc. Raising the concrete using our method saves time and money!
Breaking out and replacing concrete is not only more costly and takes much more time, but the new concrete material will not match the existing concrete and creates a much less appealing aesthetic. Grinding down concrete to eliminate a trip edge looks messy, unsightly and ultimately causes the breakdown of the concrete.
