In this day in age, it’s important to be aware of the impact and the role you play in affecting our environment. The truth is, there’s not much you have to do to keep our planet healthy. It’s small changes, like recycling, that truly make a world of difference. At Able Concrete Raising, we also continually do our part in keeping the environment safe. Many questions have been raised about mudjacking/ concrete raising, such as whether it is environmentally safe. Does it harm the natural area around it? For those of you in St Paul, St Paul suburbs, and western WI, we’ve got great news! Able Concrete Raising continually performs mudjacking in the most environmentally safe way possible!
What is Mudjacking or Concrete Raising?
Before we explain to you the environmental impacts of mudjacking, it’s important to get a better understanding of what it actually is. Mudjacking is a safe and cost effective way to level misaligned concrete slabs on sidewalks, driveways, walkways, etc. It effectively brings your concrete back up to its original, “meant to be” state, leaving you with your beautiful, existing concrete.
All Natural Product
To perform the actual raising part of this process, we drill small holes into the concrete and pump a mixture of environmentally friendly product into it. This product is a mix of recycled rock and sand that will not damage the surrounding landscaping when poured. This mixture forces the air pockets, water, and whatever else is below the surface out. In turn, this moves the built up pressure, lifting the slabs back to their original state. By using recycled materials, we are keeping our process environmentally safe and friendly.
Environmentally Better Alternative to Concrete Replacement
One of the biggest misconceptions about concrete is that once it’s uneven or broken, it’s too late. Tearing up your existing concrete and then replacing it with new concrete is not only extremely expensive but completely unnecessary. Our customers save up to 75% of the cost that it would take to replace their concrete. Did we also mention how wasteful it is to send perfectly good concrete to a landfill when all it needed was a good lift? Mudjacking is not only the cheaper alternative, but the more environmentally sound one as well.
