What is Mud Jacking?
Mud jacking 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 other concrete. It can also be used to fill voids, to prevent the sinking and cracking from a piece of concrete still in its original position.
Is This a New Way to Fix Sunken Concrete?
Mud jacking is a common repair method that has been used for many years, mostly the mid-west region of the U.S. However, professional mud jack contractors can now be found in just about any city in the U.S. The concept is very simply, but should only be attempted by professionals, as it requires experience and specialized equipment to get the work just right.
How Does It Work?
A number of 1 1/2-inch holes are drilled in the sunken concrete. A slurry is pumped under high pressure through the holes. When the void under the sunken concrete is filled with the mixture, the concrete will raise. The holes are patched with shrink proof grout and the surface is ready to use.
What Are the Advantages of Mud Jacking?
The cost of mud jacking averages 1/3-1/2 the cost of replacing concrete. Mud jacking is faster, cleaner, and more cost effective. Mud jacking is usually a permanent fix to concrete problems.
How Much Does It Cost?
The cost varies by the size, condition, and amount of space the concrete has fallen. Lift Rite Inc. provides free, no hassle, no pressure estimates.
