What is Concrete raising?
This process is also known as slabjacking, mudjacking, concrete lifting, and slablifting; it is a process used to raise concrete by drilling holes through the surface of the concrete and pumping, under hydraulic pressure, grout material underneath. The material fills the void under the surface, stabilizing and raising the slab to its proper height.
What areas can be raised?
Any concrete surface can be raised - sidewalks, driveways, pool decks, garage floors, patios, porches, steps and much more.

How long does the work take to be done?

How big are the holes?
The holes that are drilled are normally 5/8" in diameter.
What do you do with the holes when you are done?
The holes are patched with cement.
Will I notice the holes?
You will only notice because fresh sealing will be placed atop dated concrete surface. However, over time the obvious sight will fade.

Our work areas can be walked on immediately after we complete the job and driven on 24 hours after the procedure is completed.
