In the world of construction, concrete slabs play a crucial role in providing stability and support. However, over time, these sturdy surfaces can begin to sink or become uneven, causing frustration and potential hazards. Concrete lifting and levelling can return them to their proper places. Enter mud-jacking – an ingenious technique that has been transforming sunken concrete slabs into solid foundations for years. In this blog post, we’ll dive into the world of mud-jacking, its remarkable process, and how MuddRuckers has been a beacon of expertise in Manitoba for more than two decades.

The Process Behind Mud-jacking Concrete Slabs:

Mud-jacking, also known as slab-jacking, concrete lifting or concrete levelling, is a precise method of restoring sunken concrete slabs to their original elevation. Whether it’s a sinking driveway, uneven garage floor, or sunken sidewalk, mud-jacking has the power to rejuvenate these surfaces and provide a stable base for your daily activities.

  1. Thorough Assessment: The process begins with a thorough assessment by MuddRuckers’ experienced technicians. They identify the areas of sinking and determine the best injection points.
  2. Drilling and Slurry Injection: Small holes are carefully drilled into the sunken slab. Through these holes, a specially formulated limestone slurry mixture is injected. This mixture creates controlled pressure beneath the slab.
  3. Lifting and Stabilization: As the slurry is injected, it fills voids and gaps beneath the slab. This controlled pumping exerts pressure on the slab, gradually lifting it to its original level. The slurry also compacts and stabilizes the underlying soil, preventing future sinking.
  4. Sealing and Clean-Up: Once the desired elevation is achieved, the injection holes are sealed, leaving behind only minor evidence of the process. With a newly levelled surface, your concrete slab is ready to stand the test of time once again.

Advantages of Choosing Mud-jacking for Concrete Lifting and Levelling:

Opting for mud-jacking over other methods of concrete slab repair brings a host of benefits:

  1. Affordability: Mud-jacking is a cost-effective solution that can save you a significant amount compared to completely replacing a concrete slab.
  2. Time Efficiency: The mud-jacking process is swift and efficient, often completed within hours, minimizing disruption to your routine.
  3. Preserving Landscaping: Unlike extensive excavation, mud-jacking doesn’t require tearing up your landscaping. Your surroundings remain intact; depending on the amount of lift needed, you may need to backfill beside the lift to contain the slurry.
  4. Long-Term Stability: Mud-jacking not only levels the slab but also addresses the underlying issues, ensuring a stable foundation for years to come.
