Concrete Lifting & Levelling
a safe and cost-effective method of leveling misaligned concrete slabs. It's by far the most cost-effective way to raise and repair concrete driveway slabs, concrete sidewalk slabs, concrete pool deck slabs, concrete patio slabs. Any sunken concrete slab can be raised.

Voids are created under the concrete slab by the shifting of the soil or by a reduction of soil volume. The concrete may not be sufficiently strong enough to hold the load, causing the stressed concrete slab to crack, break, and eventually settle to fill the void. When concrete settles, it can cause serious damage to the structures they support.
Over time, the soil may become eroded and loose, creating an unstable foundation for structures. Gaps are created and sinkholes may develop. We have the tools and materials to fill in voids and consolidate the soil by permeating it leaving the soil compact and stable.
Your foundation problems are a direct result of foundation settlement. Instead, the real culprit of damage can be attributed to changes in soils beneath and surrounding the foundation and structure. Here is a list of the most common changes that occur in soil which cause foundation settlement.

What is Mudjacking & Why Foam is a Better Option
If you are considering repairing your sunken concrete you may be wondering what exactly is mudjacking and if there are other better methods available.
Mudjacking is not new. This technique used to lift and level sunken concrete slabs has been around for over 70 years.
The mudjacking process works by pumping a slurry (typically comprised of a mixture of sand, cement and/or soil) below a slab through holes at the surface. The hydraulic pressure from the mudjacking machine causes the slab to rise.
Mudjacking works however this repair process is not without its problems. Below I explain three main issues with mudjacking that property owners need to be aware of before selecting a repair solution and why the use of polyurethane foam is now the preferred method for lifting concrete.
The Mud Jacking Alternative
The use of polyurethane has become more and more popular since its patent expired in the early 2000s and it became available for widespread use.
This method was originally used to fill sunken roadways, but it can now be used in several raising areas.
It cures and hardens in far less time than mud jacking slurry, and is often the more feasible material for areas like driveways and walkways.
It’s the preferred method throughout the industry.
