Mudjacking 101: What Is It?
Mudjacking is done by injecting a slurry mixture of water, soil, sand, and cement under your uneven concrete. Whether your problems were caused by degraded soil stability, out-of-control tree roots, or improper water drainage systems, mudjacking is an old time-tested method of releveling concrete.
Technically, most concrete can be mudjacked (ideally it should be concrete in sound condition), though we often recommend choosing slab-leveling foam because it’s cleaner, quicker, and lasts longer. Both mudjacking and foam leveling are great for smaller slabs (think sideways and porches) to create a solid stable fill bringing concrete back to where it’s supposed to be.
Is Mudjacking Right For You?
Over the decades, our technicians have used mudjacking to level concrete in some tight and awkward spaces. Most concrete can be worked on, with one special case being reserved for concrete placed too close to retaining wall areas.
Your property and situation are unique and should be inspected by a Childers Brothers professional to really get down to brass tacks when it comes to what you’re dealing it. Some of the most common applications for effective and long-lasting results include:
- Raising your porch if one of its supports has sunk or begun sagging.
- Getting under and raising concrete steps so they’re uniform steps again.
- Small to moderate-sized slabs for walkways or sidewalks around the property.
- Your garage floor, or in some cases your driveway if the traffic isn’t too substantial.
The Benefits Of Mudjacking
Less Expensive: The costs of these types of services are always changing, but mudjacking is typically less expensive than foam injection and full-blown concrete replacement.
Less Mess, Cleanup: Mudjacking is clean and tidy compared to the mess of complex repairs or pulling up concrete, breaking it apart, and replacing it.
Minimal Disturbance: The environmental impact is extremely small because nothing’s being sent off to the landfill, and there’s almost no disturbance to the surrounding landscaping.
