Concrete slabs, including sidewalks, driveways, garage floors and pool decks, often sink due to settlement or erosion of underlying soil. This causes tripping hazards and drainage problems around the foundation.
Mudjacking has been the traditional method for lifting sunken concrete slabs, but is it the best method? The process involves boring numerous, large-diameter injection holes, and injecting a slurry of cement and soil beneath the slab. Because the “mud” is hydraulically pumped under considerable pressure, it can lift the offending slab section back to its original position. But if the soil or fill upon which the slab was installed is weak or was poorly compacted, the mudjacked slab will likely go right back to sinking. The fact that the mud adds 100 to 150 pounds per cubic foot doesn’t help matters.
