Concrete lifting (mudjacking/slabjacking)

Concrete lifting, which is also known as mudjacking or slabjacking, corrects sunken and uneven concrete by creating a solid foundation under the problem area. The concrete is carefully and evenly raised to the proper height by injecting either polyurethane foam or a grout mixture underneath the sunken slab or concrete area.

Void filling

An injection of grout or polyurethane foam that fills the space between a foundation or concrete slab and the soil beneath the foundation or slab. Voids are usually caused by erosion.

Soil stabilization

The treatment of soil to increase or maintain its stability or improve its solidity and strength using specialized grout or polyurethane foam. The result makes the ground stronger and more stable helping to prevent erosion and settlement.

Concrete repair

Repairing concrete rather than replacing is a cost effective solution. Sunken or unlevel concrete most times can be repaired for less cost and in less time than replacement.

A few examples;

    • Driveway lifting, Walkways, Stairs
    • Garage floors
    • Basement floors and walls
    • Patios
    • Ramps
    • Trip Hazards
    • Pool decks

Sunken or Uneven Concrete:

Slab Jacking CalgaryConcrete lifting, which is also known as mudjacking or slabjacking, corrects sunken and uneven concrete by creating a solid foundation under the problem area. Any voids under the concrete are filled and the concrete is carefully and evenly raised to the proper height, using either polyurethane foam or a grout mixture, which is injected underneath the sunken area.

Concrete lifting has many advantages over replacement: the surrounding landscaping is left undisturbed, the procedure often only takes a few hours, and objects do not necessarily need to be removed from the surface area. The cost of concrete lifting is significantly lower than replacement, often 1/3 to 1/4 the cost.

With our mud jacking and slab jacking services, the existing concrete does not need to be removed. Because the original slabs are lifted, you don’t have to worry about matching the look of the concrete, as would be necessary if you re-poured or replaced the slab. Demolishing and replacing concrete is messy and time consuming. Concrete slab lifting creates very little mess and the surface can be used again within hours.

Before And AfterCSL offers two material choices for concrete lifting: grout injection or polyurethane foam injection. Both carry a 5 year warranty against any sinking or settling 1 inch or more.

With grout injection, a 2 inch hole is drilled through the concrete in several places, and a specialized grout mixture is injected, which lifts and levels the area. The corrected area can be used again several hours after the procedure.

With polyurethane foam injection, a small 3/8 inch hole is drilled through the concrete in several places, and a lightweight and very durable polyurethane foam is injected, which lifts and levels the area.

The corrected area can be used again 30 minutes after the procedure. See more of our before and after pictures.
