At Adams Foundation Repair, we have a number of proven solutions for your home. Keep reading below for more information on mudjacking.
Do You Need Mudjacking?
The hardscaping around your home is a valuable investment. Whether it’s a concrete walkway, patio, or even driveway, you want it to function as intended so that everyone stays safe. But if any of your exterior concrete is starting to sink and become uneven it can begin to crack or create a dangerous tripping hazard. The more it sinks—the bigger the problem will become, which is why the sooner you deal with it, the better.
Of course, you may be wondering if that means tearing up all of your concrete. Not only does it sound costly to have the concrete torn out and replaced, but it’s a hassle. Even for a professional, concrete removal can be laborious and time-consuming—not to mention loud and invasive.
Fortunately, there’s a better solution.
Also known as “concrete leveling”—this is a service that takes existing concrete, which has become uneven with the slabs around it, and raises it up. It’s a cost-effective (and less stressful) solution to jackhammering the concrete out and replacing it entirely. Some examples of concrete in need of mudjacking are shown below.
How does mudjacking work?
It’s simple, really. Concrete mudjacking works by drilling holes into the concrete, which are injected with a special limestone/portland concrete mixture with a high-pressure pump. This forces the concrete up out of the ground where it has settled and makes it level with the surrounding slabs. The process also fills in the empty space while re-pressurizing the soil. This solution lasts for years to come and will keep your property looking clean and safe.
