Real-Life Examples of Concrete Lifting

Concrete slab lifting, also known as mudjacking or slab jacking, is a process that is used to lift and level concrete slabs that have settled or sunk due to soil movement or other factors. The technique involves injecting a high density polyurethane foam under the slab, which fills voids and lifts the slab back to its original position.

The history of concrete slab lifting can be traced back to the early 20th century, when the technique was first developed as a way to repair and level sunken concrete slabs. Over time, the technique has evolved and improved, and it is now widely used to repair a variety of concrete surfaces, including driveways, sidewalks, patios, and foundations.

Real-Life Examples of Concrete Lifting

One common concern people have about concrete lifting is whether it is environmentally friendly. The good news is that the materials used for concrete slab lifting are non-toxic and environmentally safe. In fact, concrete slab lifting is often considered a “green” solution because it reduces waste and minimizes the need for new materials.

Another concern people may have is whether concrete slab lifting will damage their property. Again, the answer is no. The small holes drilled in the slab are typically less than 2 inches in diameter, and they can be easily filled with a colour-matched material after the lifting process is complete.
