Though it sounds like a labor-intensive process, mudjacking, also known as concrete lifting is actually quite simple, fast, and affordable. It all starts with drilling a few small holes in the sunken concrete slabs. Then, a cement slurry is expertly pumped through the holes to just the right level. The concrete mix then fills the holes and voids in the soil, stabilizing the entire slab foundation. Once the voids are fully filled, the resulting pressure quickly restores the slab back to its original elevation. With just a little caulking at the end, the job is finished in no time.
There are so many reasons to choose mudjacking to solve myriad concrete leveling issues on your driveway. Since there is no concrete removal during the process, there is no cement to dispose of, which makes mudjacking an environmentally-friendly solution. It is also far less expensive than slab replacement and addresses the underlying problem of the soil much more effectively than merely putting in new concrete.
Slab lifting is also a very fast process from start to finish and can usually be accomplished in a few hours for small projects. Unlike a newly poured concrete driveway, which can take a month to fully cure, concrete lifting allows you to be driving on your newly refurbished driveway within 24-72 hours of finishing the task. While there are other types of concrete jacking polyurethanes that can be used instead of cement slurry, concrete is much cheaper, easier, and cleaner to use for a gorgeous installation every time.
