Raising and leveling your concrete is more cost and time effective than replacing it
Uneven concrete slabs can present safety issues, damage vehicle tires, and look unappealing. Instead of replacing your concrete slabs, often times you can raise / level them for a fraction of the time and money. The process of raising concrete slabs by hydraulically pumping grout, a composite of sand based material and Portland cement, under the slab is called Mudjacking concrete raising. This process is also commonly referred to as slabjacking, concrete raising, or pressure grouting.
What types of problems can concrete raising fix?
Concrete raising is an easy alternative to replacing your concrete, often times saving you over 50% of the cost of replacement! Some common areas we raise, level and repair are patios, front porches, driveways, sidewalks, garage & parking slabs, steps, and pool decks.
Benefits of mudjacking concrete raising:
- Mudjacking is the most economical means of raising and repairing your concrete
- More cost effective than polyurethane concrete raising, and exponentially more cost effective than concrete replacement
- Quick and clean, most jobs can be done and have concrete ready to use the day of
We have been helping home owners level and repair their concrete for over 40 years and are the only Wisconsin concrete raising company that provides professional mudjacking concrete raising and polyurethane concrete raising services!
I just want to say how impressed I was with RaiseRite. It was obvious to me early on that this crew had a great deal of experience and worked well as a team. They stayed on the go pretty much all day under extreme weather conditions. We have had unusual wet weather this summer, but the crew still managed to finish before the deadline. I did not observe even one incident of horseplay or goofing off, which made me feel comfortable about my having selected your company to do this very important job. This was very reassuring to my boss and we were now able to proceed with the rest of the remodeling. ~Lake Geneva, WI
Do you have uneven concrete and don’t want to pay the cost to demo and replace it? Then Mudjacking concrete raising is right for you!
The mudjacking / slabjacking concrete raising process:
Step 1: Drill Holes
The first step we take when starting your concrete raising project is to strategically drill one inch holes into the section that requires lifting. These allow us to hydraulically fill the spaces underneath your concrete.
Step 2: Equipment Setup
After the holes have been drilled we setup our equipment. Trucks remain parked while the mudjacking crew maneuvers the pump to the repair site. Armed with the mobile pump, and many lengths of hose, the mudjacking crew can reach just about anywhere.
Step 3: Lift Concrete
A sand-based slurry, infused with Portland cement, is hydraulically pumped through the 1″ holes to fill voids and raise the settled concrete. As the slurry fills the voids and crevices under the concrete slab, the pressure of the filling begins to raise the concrete. We measure the level at which the concrete slab is raised, ensuring it’s raised enough to make it level with the surrounding slabs.
Step 4: Fill Holes
After our mudjacking crew has completed raising your concrete, we insert a plug into each hole, and patch it with new cement. The concrete slab is ready for use immediately. It is recommended, however, to allow the patch material to set-up before use, which typically takes a couple of hours.
