A-1 Concrete provides residential and commercial mudjacking services for concrete slabs, patios, pools, sidewalks, driveways, steps, foundations, garages and warehouses.
Uneven or sunken concrete is unsafe and unsightly, but it isn’t difficult to repair. Most often, it’s caused by soils that are compacted by the weight of the concrete (or through water erosion). This is quickly and easily repaired through a process called mudjacking.
Mudjacking is a foundation and slab repair technique for lifting and stabilizing settling concrete slabs. It is also used during larger foundation settlement, but not as a load-supporting part of the structural repair.
Cost Effective Solution
Whether it is for aesthetic or safety reasons, mudjacking is a very cost-effective and efficient way to raise sunken sidewalks, driveways, patios and basement floors. Having level sidewalks, steps, or driveways can mean piece of mind as kids are playing, elderly come and go, and when removing ice or snow. Mudjacking is a proven, practical, and inexpensive alternative to concrete replacement.
Mudjacking concrete involves floating the slab up in small increments, which allows a controlled lift and provides the best protection for the concrete. Mudjacking services are best performed by experienced professionals that understand the right mix of materials and equipment to use in order to protect the integrity of the concrete without any damage to nearby structures.
A-1 drills a series of one inch diameter holes through the slab and hydraulically pumps a limestone-based slurry beneath the slab. This material flows into all the voided areas and reestablishes the sub surface, effectively creating a new, stable sub-base. The concrete can be used immediately after the job is done.
