Concrete Raising Service is the only contractor in our three state area to provide you with a choice for concrete raising.
 
Knowing what caused the concrete to settle is an important factor when deciding which system to use. We can help.you make that decision without being biased using our expertise in both systems.
 
Concrete settles from many causes and in most cases either system will provide a great solution for sunken concrete and both systems are a far better choice compared to removing and replacing your old concrete.
 
Conditions That Increase Risks Of Concrete Slab Problems.
1. Surface drainage toward slab.
2. Ponding next to slab.
3. Slab subgrade poorly sloped.
4. Irrigated planter adjacent to slab.
5. Excessive watering.
6. Granular base allowing water migration & ponding.
7. Open joints or cracks (poor maintenance)
8. Ground water level at or near frost depth.
9. Inadequate subgrade compaction increase potential for subgrade instability, settlement & pavement deteriation.
10. Rock, bark or flower gardens adjacent to slabs.
11. Roof drain outlet next to slab.
12. Over watering of lawn.
 
Removal and replacement concrete costs - Two to three times concrete raising costs.
 
The other option to raising your concrete is removing and replacement of your present concrete. It is not uncommon to see prices near $50.00 per square foot for small jobs, if not higher, because of concrete delivery fees, disposal fees, and labor. Concrete replacement generally can cost two to three times the cost of concrete raising when you consider the damaged landscaping and time the concrete cannot be used. Even cheap concrete jobs are not a bargain once the concrete is poured it's too late to change drainage, joints, cracking just to name a few things that can go wrong with cheap or inexperienced concrete contractors same goes for inexperienced mudjacking or foam jacking contractors if the concrete is lifted to high or cracked up or not lifted at all it's too late. Experience pays. Concrete Raising Service has over thirty years specializing in concrete raising.

Why use Mudjacking or Foam Jacking:

Both mudjacking and foam jacking are very clean, cost effective, green solutions to your sunken concrete problems.
 
Some of the benefits to raising your sunken concrete are.
  1. With foam jacking very small holes (5/8 inch) are used almost undetectable leaving you with raised concrete the same color as the surrounding concrete and holes patched that are almost invisible to the eye.
  2. Cost effective (saving up to 50%-70% vs replacing with new concrete that won't color match.)
  3. Clean & quick most jobs take one day or less and can drive on in as short a time as fifteen minutes after completion.
  4. Controlled lifting to desired height to get correct drainage or evening up joints, experience pays here.
  5. Landscaping unaffected.
  6. Equipment parked in street long hoses used to reach hard to access areas. No equipment on lawns.

Mudjacking is what you call placing a mixture of cement, dirt, and water under a slab of concrete to make it higher. The combination of these substances is known as slurry. Various companies that do this work will differ in the exact ingredients that they use. It also depends on the particular job they are doing.

Mudjacking is a great way to fix some of your problems with concrete. These could be a sinking foundation, curbs that are crumbling, or sidewalks that no longer look great. Another term for this is slabjacking.

There are various reasons why you would have to do slabjacking. It can be that the concrete is starting to settle or sink. Soil erosion is a common problem in several parts of the world because the ground has a natural tendency to settle after a couple of years. This can be a huge danger if left alone, so in some ways, you can say that slabjacking is a cost-effective thing to do.

How It Works

Mudjacking is very easy. The workers will begin by drilling a hole in the slab of concrete that they will lift. After this, they use a pressurized pump to insert the slurry. The hydraulics allow the slurry to raise the concrete to the height it needs to be. Once this is accomplished, the holes are filled in with a mixture of concrete.

Cost-Effectiveness

You do get a lot of benefits out of slabjacking. You enjoy the safety and reassurance of not having to worry about walking hazards. You also protect your property against damage caused by water runoffs. It is a great preventive measure against bigger concrete problems where you will need to redo the whole thing.

While the process does not seem to be that difficult and complicated, it is something advised to be left to professionals. You can try other do-it-yourself projects, but this one is better done by somebody who has experience. An amateur can possibly cause more damage to the concrete. When this happens, you may be left with cement damage that can no longer be repaired, and you will have no choice but to replace the concrete.

A complete overhaul of concrete slabs will require more people and bigger equipment. This will cost you so much more than if you had left the slabjacking work to a professional. It also takes longer for a complete concrete overhaul to dry, whereas reinforcing concrete will only take several hours. You also save effort from having to move plants and other landscaping materials that may be in the way.

Another cost-effective benefit from doing this is that you do not have to spend on new cement. In fact, concrete that has aged is structurally stronger than new concrete.

The price that you pay for the slurry and the professional to do the work is nothing compared to how much you will spend if you let the concrete degrade even further. Save yourself from that extra cost and effort.

Foundation Wall Bracing

For years homeowners would do foundation repair, with wall bracing, to hold their walls from pushing in further. The basement wall would move in further tightening the wall braces and if the bracing were strong enough it would hold the wall at that  position. We now have a basement wall repair system that will not only repair and hold the buckling and bowing walls; it will actually push the bowed walls back again. Wall bracing can be done to different kinds of walls, such as, block, poured, wood, clay tile, etc.
GORILA WALL BRACE SYSTEM

Buckling and Bowing Walls Made Secure

Gorilla Wall Braces can straighten most walls over time with no excavation to the exterior of the home. A constant pressure can be kept on the bracket by tightening the screw at the top. This pressure will slowly move the beam plumb. As the beam moves, the wall will also move back to its original position without any exterior excavation.
