Mud Jacking – for Sunken or Uneven Concrete
Our concrete levelling professionals can repair and prevent damage caused by sunken, uneven concrete. It’s cheaper and faster than replacement!
Sunken, uneven concrete is unattractive and potentially dangerous. It’s a safety hazard on your property that can lead to a trip and fall, and it can also cause damage by creating drainage problems. Removing and replacing sunken, uneven concrete can be time-consuming and very expensive.
The solution? Mud Jacking, also known as concrete lifting, concrete raising, concrete levelling or slab jacking.
How Does Mud Jacking Work?
CanWest’s mud jacking professionals inject a concrete grout mixture into the empty space under the sunken areas. This lifts the concrete and creates a new foundation to prevent future sinking.
Advantages of Mud Jacking
- No need to remove existing concrete.
- Costs only 25 – 50% of concrete replacement.
- Can be done in one day while replacing concrete takes 4 or 5 days.
- Concrete gets harder as it ages, so your old concrete is stronger than new concrete.
- Very little, or no damage to your landscaping; sod will remain in place.
- You can use the repaired area in as little as 4 to 6 hours, even for vehicular traffic.
- Unlike new concrete work, mud jacking work is not affected by the weather.
- No need to worry about new concrete matching the old concrete.
Where Can You Use Mud Jacking?
