Concrete raising and leveling is a service that takes precedent in certain areas surrounding your home. Exteriors like stoops or steps around your porch or entryway can not only be unsightly but difficult to walk on. And while basement & garage concrete floors may not seem all that threatening, they can actually lead to leaks and structural deterioration. In cases of home additions such as decks for your pools or patios that are attached to your home, if their concrete slabs sink or crack it puts stress on your house and the patio/deck itself causing more damages.
How We Raise Sinking Concrete
We use two products following the same exact method. The process starts with a simple hole drilled into the concrete slab until we reach the ground underneath. Within the sub-terrain where the soil has lost solidity and/or empty space has left a void, our goal is to fill this area with a firm material. We then insert a small hose into the opening and pump either our concrete mixture (mudjacking) or polyurethane foam (polyjacking). We continue to pump material until the concrete rises and realigns back into place. Both materials offer durable and longlasting effects that will keep your slab properly raised and leveled for years to come.
Mudjacking & Polyjacking: What's the difference?
Mudjacking uses a mixture of water, dirt, and cement to raise sinking or settling slabs, while polyjacking uses polyurethane material. Mudjacking is where traditional standards have stood the test of time: create more foundation using more cement. By filling the voids underneath and compacting the soil once it's hardened you can rest assured knowing your slab will no longer deteriorate or crack. When using polyjacking materials it has a tendency to be more versitile than cement due to it's fluid nature. Being more flexible polyurethane foam can fill even the smallest of crevices in the sub-terrain guaranteeing a more secure hold from subgrade failure.
