PolyLevel® is a superior alternative to mudjacking — it's less invasive and more environmentally friendly!
Uneven driveways, walkways, patios, and concrete steps aren't just an eyesore. They also create a dangerous tripping hazard on your Albany property. One way to repair sinking concrete slabs is standard mud jacking.
What is mud jacking? Mudjacking — also called slab jacking and grout pumping — is a repair technique for raising concrete slabs with a mortar-based mix. It involves pumping a mixture of soil, water, sand, and Portland cement under settling concrete. The substance is called "slurry" and cures to become a solid fill, lifting sunken concrete.
The problems with mud jacking: Despite its populariy, mud jacking is not the best solution in all circumstances. For heavy concrete structures, mud jacking is appropriate when it's used with slab piers, not as its own solution.
Traditional mudjacking is messy when it comes to sunken concrete slabs. It also involves on-site mixing, drilling large holes, and can take hours or even days to cure completely, deeming concrete unusable.
