What is Concrete Raising / Mudjacking?

Concrete slabs are vulnerable to settlement from a wide variety of factors which include poor soil conditions, compaction, tree roots, and soil erosion.  Concrete raising or concrete leveling is a term used to describe raising sunken concrete back to its original level.

At Elite Concrete Services, we accomplish concrete raising (also referred to as mudjacking) by drilling small holes into the concrete slabs and pumping material underneath them.  The material fills any voids and the slab is raised.

Shelby Township Concrete RaisingStep 1.  Drilling 11/4” injection holes strategically through the slab into the subgrade.

Step 2.  Connecting the mud jack to a tapered delivery port that is installed into the holes.

Step 3.  Injecting sandy loam into the holes which fills the space under the concrete slab, using the concrete slab itself to drive the loam into the crevices to lift the concrete.

Step 4.  Repeat pumping until all areas of sunken concrete lifts to desired level.

Step 5.  Upon leveling, drilled holes are filled with a non-shrink grout, eliminating cracking and shrinkage.

Don’t Replace Your Concrete, Concrete Raising Saves You Time, Money & Hassle!

Concrete raising is a cost effective method of leveling concrete slabs. The process of raising concrete is impervious to water and therefore a more permanent fix. The process also takes far less time than concrete replacement and is far less expensive.

  • Saves Time – work is completed in hours – not days!
  • Saves Money – generally 1/3 to ½ the cost of replacement
  • Minimal Disruption – little mess or downtime – and no re-landscaping
  • Environmentally Friendly – eliminates landfill waste and will not damage the environment
