Sinking Concrete Repair Experts
Fill dirt is almost always placed along side of house and garage foundations after the foundation work is completed. This fills in voids created during the foundation construction process. Rarely does a builder take the time to compact this dirt.
Soils consist of solid particles and the spaces (voids) between these particles. However, void spaces in soil can cause big problems for buildings and concrete slabs. Concentrated loads, such as buildings or slabs can literally squeeze air and water from soils. When this happens, the soil sinks and the buildings or slabs follow closely behind.
Concrete Raising and Leveling with Mudjacking
At Mid America Piering, we drill strategically placed holes into the sinking slab. Using a portable pump and flexible hoses we fill these holes with the special mixture. Lifting a slab using this method can often be accomplished in a few hours.
There are numerous benefits to concrete lifting.
- It can be done in virtually any weather. The material injected beneath the slab provides a strong base.
- There is little or no disruption to landscaping.
- Nothing needs to be moved off the slab, as the pump can lift the weight of the slab and anything you have placed on it.
