Over time, especially given the harsh weather in the Minnesota, concrete sidewalks, walkways, driveways and parking lots can begin to crack, buckle or is misaligned. It is unsightly and dangerous to leave damaged concrete alone and important to note that replacement is not the only option. Able Concrete Raising Inc. of St. Paul, MN can complete the concrete raising, or mudjacking process, and repair the damaged concrete so that it is safe and level. Our team has been in the concrete raising business for more than two decades and can work on all sizes and shapes of concrete slabs.
Concrete Repair Services, MN
The concrete raising process is fairly simple. The concrete repair specialists at Able Concrete Raising will drill small one inch holes into the damaged concrete and then will pump a mixture of concrete and recycled sand into the holes. The concrete mixture will fill the void or space underneath the concrete that is causing the concrete slab to shrink. The pressure that develops underneath the slab lifts the slab to its regular grade. The holes are filled, and the repair is complete and permanent.
Benefits Of Concrete Raising
There are many benefits of concrete raising over investing in a full concrete slab replacement. First, concrete raising, or mudjacking, is less expensive and takes less time than replacing the damaged concrete. In fact, concrete raising can save you as much as 75% over replacing the slab, and you can expect a concrete raising project to take hours, not days, like a full replacement. With concrete raising, you do not impact the surrounding lawn, and the process is extremely clean; in fact, the area is left even cleaner than when our team arrives. Mudjacking is also environmentally friendly, creating much less waste than replacement. Finally, there is no color change in the concrete, and it is ready for immediate use once the concrete raising process is complete.
Mudjacking can be effectively used for many concrete repair projects and is safe and recommended for the following concrete applications:
- Parking lots
- City curbs
- Pool Decks
- Garage floors
- Basement floors
- Stoops / porches
- Any free floating slab
