Have you had one too many kids from the neighborhood fall because of the uneven sidewalk on your property? It is time for you to repair the sidewalk on your St. Paul or Eagan, MN property so that kids can play on your sidewalk without getting injured. We understand that thinking about this home improvement project can be overwhelming, but our team at Able Concrete Raising, Inc., believes that you may be surprised at the affordability of our process known as mudjacking. Rather than replacing the entire concrete, our mudjacking option lifts the affected concrete back to its natural level.

Mudjacking Basics

Mudjacking is a relatively new concept for some in the St. Paul & Eagan, MN areas, but it has actually been around since 1929. Back in 1929, mudjacking was used to raise the roads slabs in Mount Pleasant, Iowa back to their original grade. The reason that our team is able to save you money with our mudjacking services is that we do not have to replace your existing concrete. Instead, our mudjacking experts drill one inch holes into the underperforming concrete slabs and pump a eco-friendly mixture of concrete and recycled sand into those holes. The mixture then fills the holes under the sidewalk and gets rid of those unwanted air pockets and water buildup. Next thing you know, the poorly functioning asphalt is now back to its original grade. The last step is to repatch the small holes with cement and then your sidewalk is back to working order.

Say No to Replacement

There are quite a few reasons why mudjacking is a better option than concrete replacement when it comes to your sidewalk. A few of the reasons include:

  • Price – Mudjacking allows you to save between ⅓ to ½ of the money you would end up spending on sidewalk replacement.
  • Environmentally Friendly – With mudjacking, there is no waste that ends up taking up space in your local landfill and there is much less concrete used in comparison to replacement.
  • Quick Turnaround – With sidewalk replacement, you’ll have to stay off the sidewalk for a few days. With our mudjacking services, your sidewalk can be used immediately after the project is complete.

Before you decide to replace the sidewalk on your St. Paul or Eagan, MN property, consider mudjacking as a more affordable alternative. Not only will it save you money, but it will also save you lots of time so that the kids in your neighborhood can get back to playing on your sidewalk!
