Can you explain the mudjacking process?
Here’s a graphic showing the basic mudjacking process:
Why do I need my concrete leveled?
With Midwestern rain and weather conditions, your exterior slabs (and even interior slabs) can begin to sink without any warning. This can lead to any number of water damage potential to your home. Sidewalks, driveways, patios and porches that do not run the water away from your home create the potential for damage to your foundation as well as flooding possibilities. There is also the problem of tripping hazards if you have an uneven sidewalk or patio, creating a hazardous environment for you and anyone at your home or business. Whether it’s a gap within your porch or a small slant toward your home, mudjacking can be the key to fixing your pavement.
How much will mudjacking cost me?
As with most home improvement projects, the cost will vary depending on the scope of the work done. However, you can expect the mudjacking services to cost anywhere between a few hundred to a few thousand dollars. The best way to know how much your concrete leveling will cost is have us come to your home or business for a FREE estimate.
What can happen if I don’t level my concrete?
Water damage is a very real possibility if your concrete is not level, which can lead to rot, mold and foundation issues. Also known as slab jacking, mud pumping or concrete leveling, mudjacking of your exterior concrete slabs is an easy measure to prevent moisture from entering your home. Don’t let settling concrete unsettle your mind. Use an accredited contractor to ensure sinking concrete doesn’t effect the health of your family.
What are the causes of concrete settling?
The main culprit behind sinking concrete is washout from rain or snow melt, drying, shrinking or poorly compacted soils, and even leaking pipes. If you have under-slab piping that is slowly leaking, soil can wash away, leaving a void below your slab. Soil displacement can lead to buckling driveways, uneven sidewalks, or even a cracked foundation. Mudjacking your sinking concrete slabs and leveling them can prevent long term damage to your home. Also adding long down spouts drain tubes around your home can help keep water away from your concrete, and so can proper snow removal Brookfield winter.
Why should I fix my concrete instead of replacing it?
In short, most concrete slabs can be repaired for a fraction of the cost and a fraction of the time that would take for concrete replacement. Not only does concrete replacement require much more labor to rip out the existing slab, the newly poured slab cannot be used for days! With our concrete leveling services, there is no drying time, and the slab can be walked on within minutes. Fixing your sinking concrete slabs with mudjacking will save you time, money and the hassle of waiting for it to dry.
Do I need to be home while you are correcting my concrete?
Outdoor concrete such as patios, sidewalks or driveways can be done at any time with your permission. You only need to be present if your cracked concrete is in the interior of your home or garage.
