Concrete Repair Mudjacking

Revitalizing Your Concrete with Mudjacking:

Mudjacking, also known as slab jacking, is a specialized service offered by Burke Stripling & Co. to address the common issue of sunken or uneven concrete surfaces. This cost-effective and efficient technique is ideal for correcting concrete slabs that have shifted due to soil erosion, compaction, or other subsurface issues.

How Mudjacking Works:

The process of mudjacking involves drilling small, strategically placed holes into the affected concrete slab. Through these holes, we pump a specialized mixture, typically consisting of soil, water, and cement, beneath the slab. This mixture, known as ‘slurry’, fills the voids and spaces under the slab, exerting upward pressure. This pressure effectively raises the slab back to its original, level position. Once the lifting is complete, the drilled holes are filled and sealed, leaving a smooth, level surface.

Benefits of Choosing Mudjacking

  • Cost-Effective: Compared to complete concrete replacement, mudjacking is a more affordable solution for fixing sunken concrete.
  • Time-Efficient: The process is relatively quick, often completed in just a few hours, and the area is ready for use shortly after the procedure.
  • Environmentally Friendly: Mudjacking utilizes natural materials and reduces the need for new concrete, making it a greener choice.
  • Durable Results: The durability of the repaired surface is enhanced, providing a long-term solution to the issue of sinking or uneven slabs.

Ideal Applications for Mudjacking

  • Driveways and Sidewalks: Restoring level surfaces for safety and curb appeal.
  • Patios and Pool Decks: Ensuring even surfaces for enjoyment and functionality.
  • Garage Floors: Correcting uneven flooring for better vehicle maintenance.
  • Industrial and Commercial Spaces: Maintaining level surfaces for operational efficiency.

What Is Mudjacking?

Mudjacking, a time-honored technique in the world of concrete leveling, involves using a specially formulated mixture, often a blend of topsoil and Portland cement, injected beneath concrete slabs to hydraulically lift and level them. This process has evolved over time, and today, a variety of mixtures can be used for mudjacking, with the most common being a combination of local soil or sand, water, and cement.

The process typically involves drilling holes, usually between 1 and 2 inches in diameter, through which the mixture is injected under the slabs using a movable pump that can access most locations.

What is Mudjacking

How Mudjacking Works

As the mudjacking mixture is pumped beneath the concrete, it fills any voids, and the building pressure gradually lifts the slab back to its original position. Once the concrete is adequately raised, the drilled holes are filled with a color-matching grout to ensure a seamless appearance.

Benefits of Mudjacking:

  • Precision Lifting: Allows for low-pressure, finely controlled lifting of the slab.
  • Void Filling: Ensures complete filling of the void beneath the slab, eliminating air pockets.
  • Strength: Typically offers higher compressive strength compared to Foam Leveling.
  • Eco-Friendly: Utilizes environmentally friendly materials.
  • Cost-Effective: A budget-friendly alternative to other leveling methods.

Considerations with Mudjacking:

While mudjacking is highly effective, there are a few considerations to keep in mind:

  • Clean-Up: The process may require more clean-up afterward compared to Foam Leveling.
  • Drilling Holes: The holes drilled are larger than those required for other methods.
  • Time Factor: The process can be slower due to the volume of material and meticulous approach needed.
