MUDJACKING Concrete Raising
Mudjacking is the most economical means of raising and repairing sunken concrete. The process requires hydraulically pumping a slurry, which is comprised of a sand based material and Portland cement. Mud jacking is commonly referred to as slabjacking, concrete raising, or pressure grouting.

The mud jacking / slab jacking concrete raising process:
The first step we take when starting your concrete raising project is to strategically drill one inch holes into the section that requires lifting. These allow us to hydraulically fill the spaces underneath your concrete, and raise the concrete to its proper height.
After the holes have been drilled we setup our equipment. Trucks remain parked while the mudjacking crew maneuvers the pump to the repair site. Armed with the mobile pump, and many lengths of hose, the mudjacking crew can reach just about anywhere.
A slurry, infused with Portland cement, is hydraulically pumped through the 1″ holes to fill voids and raise the settled concrete. As the slurry fills the voids under the concrete slab, the pressure of the filling begins to raise the concrete. We measure the level at which the concrete slab is raised, ensuring it’s raised enough to make it level with the adjacent slabs.
After our mudjacking crew has completed raising the concrete, we insert a plug into each hole, and patch it with new cement. The concrete slab is ready for use immediately. It is recommended, however, to allow the patch material to set-up before use, which typically takes a couple of hours.
