Common Questions

Common questions about mudjacking and the mudjacking process.

How much will it cost?
The average cost is 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of replacement.

Can I get a price over the phone?
No. We need to look at every job before we price it. Other issues, such as our ability to get our equipment to the area, play into the cost factor. Sometimes a project is not a candidate for mudjacking, and replacement may be a better solution. We do not charge for estimates.

What time of year can this process be done?
We end our season in late November/early December. We begin our season again in early March.

How long until I can walk/drive on the raised concrete?
The concrete is available to foot traffic as soon as we are finished mud-jacking. Vehicle traffic should be kept off for 12 hours. Pools can be used right away provided the concrete used to patch the holes is kept dry.

How long will it take?
An average job takes 2 to 5 hours. Some swimming pools can take the better part of a day.

Is this a ‘green’ alternative?
Yes. The amount of energy consumed in the manufacturing of concrete is tremendous. (Limestone needs to be heated to 2000° Fahrenheit to become cement.) If your concrete is in good order, leave it in place, and let us raise and level it instead.

Will I see the holes?
Most probably, yes. The concrete patch in the holes will be a different color and texture than your original concrete. However, over time, the colors of the old and new will blend together, but the texture may remain different. We tell people it makes interesting cocktail party conversation. Some people embrace the holes because this shows they chose the responsible alternative.

What about my landscaping?
We will not affect or disrupt your landscaping. Our product is natural, and any residue will wash into the ground with no effect.

Will pumping near my foundation wall affect it?
No. The pressure of our slurry is quickly diminished by using a low volume pump.

Do I need to cover my pool before it is mud jacked?
No. In fact, the pool cover needs to be off so we can monitor the sides of the pool and the coping, if one is in place.

How long will it last?
There is no reason why this process won’t last as long as the concrete, provided water is kept from washing the soil out from under the concrete. We guarantee our work for one or two years depending on the age of the concrete. The seam around the concrete needs to be caulked with a waterproof caulk. We do not provide a guarantee on our service when we raise sidewalks around a tree root.

Advantages

Advantages of Mudjacking

The first and main advantage is the cost savings. Mudjacking is generally 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of concrete replacement.

The second big advantage is that the concrete will not be mismatched, as it would with replacement. Since it has not been replaced, your concrete will still match, in both color and texture, with the surrounding concrete. This is most important when you have stamped and or stained concrete.

Also, the project will be completed in one day.

We will not disturb your landscaping the way replacement can.

Mudjacking is a ‘green’ alternative to replacement. The amount of energy used to produce cement (the main ingredient in concrete replacment) is tremendous.

What is Mudjacking?

What is Mudjacking and how does it work?

Mudjacking is a process that raises and levels sunken concrete, eliminating the need for concrete replacement.

It can be used on driveways, patios, pool decks, sidewalks, porches, steps, foundations, and other concrete surfaces.

The concrete needs to be in good condition, with few or no cracks, and have a reasonable depth (thickness).

The process begins by drilling a 1 5/8 “diameter hole(s) through the top of the existing concrete. (The holes are the diameter of a Snapple bottle cap.) The number of holes and their placement depends on the size of the piece to be raised.

A mud slurry is pumped into the hole(s) in the concrete. The hydraulic pressure raises up the concrete until it is at the desired level.

After the concrete is raised, the hole(s) is plugged with a foam plug, the concrete surface is cleaned, the foam plug(s) is pushed down, and the hole(s) is filled with concrete.

What we can’t do.
We cannot raise pavers or asphalt paving and we also cannot raise dirt filled steps.
