Mudjacking is also known as slab jacking, concrete lifting, concrete raising, grout pumping and slab leveling. Mudjacking is a repair technique of pumping slurry (soil that is modified with cement) underneath a concrete slab structure that has sunken, or a corner or side that has raised up. We have developed our own proprietary formulation that will just about guarantee our mudjacking process will last forever. But if it doesn’t, remember your iron-clad guarantee!
What is Mudjacking?
Small holes are drilled into the concrete and our slurry formulation is injected into them. This spreads and fills these empty or void areas. As it fills, it creates pressure underneath the slab and the surface is lifted upwards. The even pressure is what alleviates the unlikely chance of the concrete cracking. Our process is safer than our competitors. The slurry is lighter than the concrete and more stable than the soil. It cures to become a solid and stable fill. The holes are filled and in about four hours the slab is safe to walk or drive on.
Why is Mudjacking Necessary?
A common issue for homeowners in the Olathe area is shrinking and settling soil underneath concrete slab foundations and structures of all kinds. So, if your concrete slabs have become sunken, misaligned, cracked or broken due to the failure of the soil underneath your foundation, you are not alone.
There are different types of soil and they all have different capacities for load-bearing. The amount of silt and clay in the soil is also a substantial factor in the degree of soil shrinkage. Often times, the soil was not compacted properly, but most soil will settle and compact unevenly eventually.
The soil underneath can also wash out or become eroded due to flooding or incorrect drainage levels. This creates voids (holes) underneath and the masonry is no longer supported properly. This causes the sides and corners to rise above the level of adjacent concrete slabs along with the cracking and breaking previously mentioned. Your slabs become unsightly and hazardous. Everyone has seen this or has been affected by tripping from it. Aesthetically speaking, mudjacking is important to the overall look of your home and landscaping. More importantly is the need to avoid a trip-and-fall accident that is highly likely.
