Slabjacking | Mudjacking
Concrete can sink and settle when the soil underneath is either unable to support the weight of a concrete slab or is washed out from underneath. As concrete slabs sink downwards, they will begin to crack and become damaged, ruining the functionality and aesthetic appeal of driveways, walkways, steps, and other outdoor concrete.
Traditionally, these problems have been repaired with mudjacking, a technique that involves pumping a mortar-based mixture of "mud" or "slurry" underneath a settling slab. This injected material is a mixture of water, soil, sand and Portland cement that cures to become a solid, stable fill.
As the mixture is pumped underneath the concrete slab, it fills all empty spaces and creates pressure on the slab that lifts the surface upwards. Once injected, the slurry will then harden into a solid fill that's more stable than the soil, yet lighter than concrete.While mudjacking has its uses, PolyLevel® is a much better option for lifting and leveling damaged concrete. PolyLevel® is a foam injection that is less invasive, more stable, and more durable than mudjacking.
