Slabjacking | Mudjacking

Mudjacking slabjacking MississippiConcrete 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.

Why choose PolyLevel® over mudjacking?

Mississippi mudjacking slabjacking contractorMany homeowners have used mudjacking to repair their damaged concrete surfaces and been disappointed at the results. Although the mixture used for mudjacking is lighter than concrete, it still places enough weight on the soil to lead to further settling over time, especially in high traffic areas.

Depending on the nature of the damaged surface, mudjacking can be a very invasive process, and it takes hours or even a day for the surface to be usable. Even worse, mudjacking has been known to put too much pressure on thinner slabs and create further cracking.

PolyLevel® provides the perfect solution to all these problems. PolyLevel® is a lightweight polymer foam that expands as it is injected under the concrete, allowing for a precise raising of the slab. PolyLevel® cures within 30 minutes, making the area immediately ready for use.

Because it is so lightweight, PolyLevel® doesn't add additional pressure to the soil, providing a longer lasting, more stable finished surface. PolyLevel® is injected with only a few small holes drilled in the surface, which are patched after installation.
