Let Freeman Contracting’s four generations, 75 year (+) history, and knowledge address your misaligned and sunken concrete slabs.
Settled or undermined concrete slabs do not have to be replaced to restore them to a safe and usable condition. Pressure grouting, or mudjacking as it is commonly known, can accomplish this without the inconvenience of removal and replacement of the concrete. Mudjacking, too, is much less expensive than replacing concrete (generally 1/3 to 1/2 the cost).
Mudjacking is a relatively simple procedure using a positive displacement hydraulic pump.
A series of cores are drilled through the slab at select locations through which the cement-based grout mixture is to be pumped.
The grout mixture is pumped beneath the slab using the mudjacking equipment. The grout mixture flows beneath the slab and fills void space that is present.
After the void space has been filled additional pressure is applied through the mudjack pump to raise the slab.
During our 75 (+) years of providing mudjacking services we have addressed virtually every type of cast-in-place concrete arrangement including; streets, sidewalks, driveways, patios, porches, garage floors, machinery bases, factory floors, warehouse floors, loading docks, interior house floors, swimming pools, and airport runways. The process, too, has been utilized to stop seepage through earthen damns and around concrete spillways, to fill abandoned sewers and underground tanks, and to stabilize utility borings and trench backfills.
