MUDJACKING PROCESS

WHAT IS MUDJACKING?

Mudjacking, which is also called “mud pumping” and “slab leveling,” is a process used to fill the voids and empty spaces that sometimes occur under home foundations and concrete slabs. If you have ever seen lopsided, tilted or uneven slabs of concrete, you have seen what happens when concrete is destabilized due to the voids beneath it. Mudjacking fills those voids, returning stability to the area.

The mudjacking process involves pumping a grout-like mud slurry into holes that are carefully drilled into a concrete slab. As the slurry fills the voids beneath the concrete, it raises the slab, helping to level and stabilize it.

This process is tried and true, and has been used for decades to fix uneven concrete surfaces and concrete settlement.

Before & After Mudjacking

WHAT DO WE USE FOR MUDJACKING?

The substance we pump is called a cement slurry. For 99% of the jobs we do (which are primarily residential), the mixture is as follows: 20% brown soil, 20% black soil, 20%clay, 20% sand, and 20% crushed lime stone. To this we add water and 3.5 bags of Portland cement to every cubic yard of our above described substance. On commercial jobs, we are sometimes required to change this substance by adding metal fileings or using a non-shrink grout.

Unlike other mud jacking companies, we offer a 4 year guarantee on all of our jobs without a service fee. We guarantee our quotes without passing on additional charges to our customers. We are a business with integrity and we stand by our services and guarantees.
