Mudjacking is the preferred way of elevating and stabilizing settled concrete slabs in Calgary, and it is also the most cost-effective approach. Mudjacking, also known as concrete lifting, is a long-lasting technique that you will be able to benefit from for many years to come. Mudjacking has proven to be the most effective solution for our Calgary residents’ concrete demands.
Because of changes in the underlying soils, concrete slabs sink over time. These alterations are addressed with mudjacking, which restores the concrete’s integrity.
It may seem complicated at first glance, but it isn’t if you hire the experts. The repair takes around an hour or two from start to finish depending on the size of the job.
The first step of the process is drilling a few tiny holes in the settled concrete slabs. The holes are then filled with cement slurry. This combination helps to strengthen the slab foundation by filling gaps or empty places in the soil.
Pressure elevates the slab back to its original level position after the cavities have been filled. The cracks and mudjacking holes are then quickly caulked, and the restoration is finished. The surface is suitable for light usage once the crew has left.
The slab can then withstand significant weight after a few hours or overnight.
