MUDJACKING MUDJACKING FOUNDATIONS FOUNDATIONS
Mudjacking defined: Concrete mudjacking is an alternative to replacing sunken or uneven concrete, restoring the slabs to their original grade. Most slabs of concrete are referred to as “floating” slabs.
Why do slabs settle and shift? Slabs shift and settle with normal freezing and thawing cycles that we have in Central Illinois.
Another reason that slabs shift is the new construction of a house. When the soil is disturbed it is a natural process for slabs around the newly constructed house to settle until it is compacted to its previous state. Many contractors do their best to compact sub-grade under new slabs but it is still common for settling to occur. Drainage issues. It is important to keep the soil graded so that it is sloping away from the house. Downspout extensions need to be placed so that the water is running away from the foundation and slabs so the water doesn’t erode the fill under them. What do we inject under your slab? Our material is mixed at each job site to adjust for each situation encountered. Our formulation has enough flexibility to fill voids and pockets. This will result in more material filling the void under the slab, providing a more through solution. The main substance in our mudjacking material is crushed limestone which offers a solid solution for filling voids and lifting the slab. Some of our competitors mix their material too stiff which can result in a pillaring affect with material established as pillars and leaving voids throughout the affected area. With time these “pillars” collapse and the need for subsequent repair arises. Although we have very few calls for adjustment each year, we offer a full two-year adjustment period, free of charge to our customers .

“The county kept adding asphalt to the road and the bump at the end of our driveway was so annoying for years. Jack-A-Slab came right out for an estimate. Seems like they were here the next day and jacked up the driveway. The result was amazing! I highly recommend this company”
