MUDJACKING FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How much money will I save by mudjacking?
Mudjacking is approx 1/2 – 1/3 the cost of concrete replacement.
How long does Mudjacking take?
Average mudjacking jobs usually take 1 – 2 hours. Larger jobs take longer but usually not longer than 1 day.
What can be mudjacked? What cannot?
All concrete can be mudjacked. Examples include driveways, steps, patios, pools, basement floors, garage floors, sidewalks, grain bins, city streets, boat ramps, parking lots, interior floors, loading docks, runways, highways, schools, generator pads, warehouse floors, and more. There may be a few circumstances when concrete cannot be mudjacked. It is best to get an estimate to find out. Also, if the concrete is severely broken up, it is usually better to have it replaced than mudjacked.
Why not replace?
Mudjacking is just a less expensive alternative to your concrete issues.
When can you mudjack/power grout? When can’t you?
Retaining walls too close to the area can cause an issue and may not be able to be mudjacked. Every situation is different and should be looked at by a professional to determine if this process will work for your situation.
How do rodents create problems?
Rodents, such as moles or groundhogs, will tunnel under concrete slabs or next to foundations. When water runs down through these holes it can cause wash outs or ground settlement.
When can we drive on the driveway?
Vehicle traffic 4-6 hours for average size vehicles.
Will my yard or sprinkler heads be damaged?
Sprinkler heads do not get damaged. Yards, if dry, have no damage what-so-ever. If sprinklers are left on or the ground is soft, 1 – 3 inch ruts may occur from the hydraulic pump.
How much room do you need to work?
It depends on the situation.
Does your work make a lot of dust or debris?
Drilling holes makes a little dust and if we have to saw cut your concrete this can sometimes make a lot of dust if water is not used. Water can be used to keep dust down if this is an issue for the customer.
What is Concrete Leveling?
Concrete leveling is the process of pumping material under the slab to bring it back up to original height.
How does Concrete Leveling work?
This process consists of drilling 1 inch holes in the concrete slab. Pumping a mixture of grout underneath the slab to raise it to desired height. Then the 1 inch holes are cleaned out and cement is placed in the holes.
How long has Concrete Leveling been in existence?
Mudjacking was started back in the early 1900’s. Back then they pumped actual mud and that is where the term mudjacking originated.
What is a “Void”?
A void consists of a cavity under the concrete where dirt or rock has been washed away due to water or ground settlement. In return, the concrete is not supported properly and will cause sinking over time. source: mixandmudjacking.com
