Mudjacking and Full Service Concrete Repair

Occasionally the soil under driveways, sidewalks, or other concrete slabs shift, causing the concrete to start to sink and become uneven, and in some cases crack or slide under another slab. At one time your only option would have been to rip the concrete slab out and repour it. Today, BC Hardscapes can offer mudjacking as another, more cost-effective option for concrete leveling and repair.

Cracked or uneven concrete not only looks unpleasant and affects your property's curb appeal, but it is also a safety and liability issue. If your sidewalk or driveway tilts and sinks, it can leave part of it sticking up where people are likely to trip on it. If someone falls and is injured on your property, you could be held liable. Uneven concrete can also cause drainage problems, sometimes leading to foundation problems.

Mudjacking, also sometimes called slabjacking, is usually an option as long as the concrete hasn't crumbled or disintegrated and as long as the soil under it isn't too soft or swampy. To raise your concrete slab and align it with surrounding slabs or restore two uneven parts of a slab that have broken apart, BC Hardscapes will drill a series of holes in the concrete slab. We will then pump a mixture of water, dirt, and cement, called slurry, into the holes to fill the void. The pressure created will raise the concrete back up to where it should be. The holes are then patched with concrete and the slurry will solidify and stabilize the soil, keeping the slab level. Most mudjacking repairs are completed in a single day and you can usually walk on the repaired concrete within a few hours.

Residential and Commercial Mudjacking

Mudjacking is an option for a variety of residential and commercial concrete repair projects, including driveways, sidewalks, patios, pool decks, steps, porches, garage floors, interior floors, parking lots, ramps, warehouse floors, and more.

Mudjacking should only be performed by an experience professional such as BC Hardscapes. We will evaluate the situation to determine if mudjacking is an appropriate solution. BC Hardscapes will also evaluate the surrounding soil to ensure it can stand up to the mudjacking process as well as locate the utilities, drain pipes, and sewer pipes to ensure slurry does not get into them.

Mudjacking offers several benefits over ripping out the concrete and repouring it. Mudjacking typically costs about one-fourth to one-half of the cost of replacing the concrete. It is also faster and cleaner and does not disturb the surrounding landscape. Replacing the concrete typically takes a few days to cure before it can be walked on. It also damages grass and landscaping, and creates a large volume of dust.
