What is Concrete Leveling, Slabjacking or Mudjacking?
Concrete leveling, also known as slabjacking or mudjacking, is a process that levels the concrete and is used to prevent tripping hazards. It involves drilling a pattern of holes between 1-1/8 and 1-3/8 inches through the sunken concrete slab. During this process, grout mixture is pumped under the slab using a hose with a nozzle that fits into the holes. (The grout is a fast-drying strong material that does its job perfectly; it is made by mixing water, sandy soil, and cement.) Once voids are filled, the grout becomes pressurized, hydraulically raising the concrete slab to the desired height. The drilled holes are patched using a concrete mixture.
