Concrete raising, also known as mudjacking is the process by which material is pumped into holes that are drilled in a concrete slab. The material fills all voids, displaces water and water-saturated materials, and applies pressure that when exerted pushes up on the concrete slab and raises it to the desired height.
How Concrete Raising Works (Also Known as Mudjacking)
First, a few small holes are carefully drilled into the sunken concrete. These holes are very small, about the size of a dime. Next, a compound is pumped into the holes that works hydraulically underneath the concrete to raise it back to its original position. Finally, when the desired level of concrete is achieved, the holes are sealed off using a durable cement mixture and is ready for use the very same day.

There are many benefits of concrete raising over replacement. If you are looking to fix an uneven sidewalk, patio, porch, deck, pool deck, garage floor, curb, gutter, steps or more, then concrete leveling is the most cost effective choice for you. Below we have listed some of the benefits of using concrete leveling over replacement.
Takes Hours, Not Days: Most slab levelling jobs will take only hours, so you will be using the area again just hours after we raise it. You do not have to wait for the cure as in replacement which takes about 28 days.
Costs Less than Replacement: Concrete leveling is approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of replacement.
Less Mess: Because there is no concrete to break up and haul away, there is no damage to surrounding lawn or shrubs.
Reduced Liability: By removing hazards caused by sunken concrete, you can eliminate accidents that may bring liability suits. You can also eliminate the hazard of leaving broken concrete areas overnight or longer in places of public access.
