Mudjacking

Mudjacking or slab jacking is the process of pumping a concrete slurry underneath existing sunken concrete to:
  1. Fill any hollow voids under the concrete, and
  2. Effectively lift the concrete to the desired height.
Mudjacking sunken concrete creates even transitions between concrete slabs. The process removes tripping hazards and creates proper drainage for water so that water will pitch away from buildings to a desired location. When concrete is mudjacked, a pattern of small holes are strategically drilled in the concrete. A concrete slurry is than hydraulically pumped through the holes and the concrete is raised.
Once the concrete has been raised to the desired height, the drill holes are patched to match the texture of the existing concrete and the job site is left clean and tidy. Mudjacking is a solution to many scenarios including: driveways, sidewalks, walkways, patios, garage floors, commercial floors and ramps, pool decks, and hollow voids underneath existing concrete.

Foamjacking

Foamjacking is the process of injecting an expanding foam underneath existing sunken concrete to:
  1. Fill any hollow voids under the concrete, and
  2. Effectively lift the concrete to the desired height.
Foamjacking is similar to mudjacking, but has some distinctions of its own including: smaller injection holes and lighter weight material that will add very little additional weight under the concrete. Also, this foam is made from over 40% recycled material, and is the “greenest” polyurethane on the market”. Foamjacking is possible in the same exterior scenarios as mudjacking. But in addition, polyurethane can also lift interior concrete such as sunken basement slabs of concrete foundations or ICF foundations. If the concrete has been covered with a flooring product, the flooring product can temporarily be pulled back so the work can begin. When the job is completed, the floor covering can be put back into place.
When concrete is raised by polyurethane, 5/8 inch holes are strategically drilled in the concrete and hydrophobic expanding foam is injected beneath the concrete. As the foam expands, it lifts the concrete toward the desired height. After the concrete has been raised to the proper level, the drill holes are patched to match the surrounding concrete, and the site is left clean and tidy.
