What is mudjacking, how does it work? 

If you searched for “mudjacking near me” or “concrete lifting St. Louis” because you want to learn more about mudjacking services and how it can help you, you are in the right place!

Learn more about mudjacking, and whether it is a suitable option for your property, whether that be residential, business or commercial, and find a professional in your area that offers great service.

First off, let’s clear something up – mud jacking goes by a few names, including:

  • Slab jacking or leveling
  • Concrete rising or lifting, and also
  • Grout pumping

But they all mean the same thing – mudjacking. So let’s get started.

If you have ever seen a cracked driveway, broken sidewalk or uneven concrete or have experienced these issues at your home or business, you’ll understand how annoying these issues are. But as well as being unsightly, they are also dangerous, and if you don’t address the matter – you might well end up with a lawsuit if someone trips and injures themselves!

Concrete is a wonderful and versatile material but it is heavy and overtime because of age, usage and the weather, it can sink causing uneven surfaces and concrete cracks to appear. At this stage you may have reached for the cheque book, thinking you need to replace the entire path or your porch. But there are other options, and mudjacking could be the solution.

Mudjacking is a simple and cost effective way to manage this common issue. By pumping a mixture of “slurry” or “mud” beneath the slabs it fills any voids and gaps beneath the concrete and pushes the slab back up to its correct position. Once set, it forms a hard, stable surface that is more suitable than mere soil but lighter than concrete.

What is the Concrete Leveling Process?

It’s a simple, three-stage process:

  1. We drill one or two inch holes into the affected area.

  2. We pump the “slurry” beneath the affected area, it fills the void and pushes the slab back up and into its original position.

  3. We fill the holes and repair any cracks or breaks in the concrete for a professional, neat finish.

Is Mud Jacking a Good Idea?

Mudjacking has several benefits including:

  • Cost saving – when matched against re-pouring an entire section of concrete, mudjacking is a clear winner.
  • Time saving – it is considerably quicker to mudjack than to re-pour the affected area.
  • Mess saving – repairing a section of path, for example, will be less messy than the removal, disposal and re-pouring of an entire new path.
  • Earth saving- it is much better to repair rather than to re-pour.

However, mudjacking, as wonderful as it is, isn’t suitable or appropriate for all fixes.

While mudjacking is an excellent solution for many concrete slab issues, it is not appropriate if the damage is extensive. Nor is it a solution for some foundation issues. Let a professional help you to decide whether mudjacking is right for you. We also offer foundation repair as well as new concrete services. Call now or Request a Quote.

Done by a skilled professional with the correct equipment and knowledge, mudjacking is a great way to fix issues at your home and business, especially those that pose a tripping hazard. However, we do not recommend those without an understanding of soil conditions and mudjacking and without the specialist gear, to take on mudjacking as a DIY project.

Do I Need a Permit?

A building permit is usually not needed for these types of projects. However, if you’re unsure, it’s always best to speak to your local permit office just in case. Our experts offer free estimates in the Saint Louis Missouri area and can best advise whether permits are required or not.

How much does mudjacking cost? 

Like most things to do with home and property repair, the price you pay will depend on various factors but the good news is mudjacking is one of the cheapest ways of repairing sagging, damaged concrete (where this is applicable).

The price you pay will depend on several factors including:

  • Size of the area
  • Extent of the damage
  • Amount of “slurry” used.

What materials do professional mudjacking companies use? 

The “slurry” or “mud” injected beneath the surface is a mixture of:

  • Soil
  • Sand
  • Water and
  • Cement

Once set this mixture forms a solid, stable base beneath the concrete. It provides an effective and long-lasting solution to de-stabilized slabs.

How much weight can mudjacking lift? 

The precise amount which mudjacking can lift will vary depending on the area and the situation. This is something that your mudjacking professional can explain in further detail. But as a rough guide it is typically anywhere between 6,000 and 14,000 pounds per square foot.

How long does mudjacking take? 

Depending on the size of the area, our team will usually complete the job in around one to two hours. Once a professional has assessed the damage they will give you a more accurate time span.

Once the repair is complete, it is advisable to wait overnight before placing heavy objects onto the area, but it should be okay for light use once complete. 

Can you mud jack a house?

It is not typically recommended to raise a house with mudjacking. Foundation issues are often best repaired by the insertion of piers alongside mudjacking. It is a specialist job that requires skill and the right equipment. Speak to a professional mudjacking expert to discuss how they can help you.

How long does mudjacking typically last? 

How long your repair lasts will depend on several factors including:

  • The age of the property

Do professionals mud jack during the winter months? 

Depending on where you live and your local weather during the winter months, mudjacking is usually okay so long as the temperature is above freezing. If you live in an area with below freezing temperatures for several months over the winter period, you may find that some companies have winterized their equipment. This is something your mudjacking professional can explain in greater detail.
