Slab Jacking (Mudjacking) refers to the technique of drilling large holes into the concrete and filling cement slurry at a high pressure in hopes of elevating the soil to cure leveling issues. However, this quick fix can even worsen the issue, placing further strain on the soil. This cement mud can often spout through the drilled holes, creating an unsightly mess. Rather than seeking a temporary and possibly problematic fix, injecting polyurethane to lift and repair concrete slabs is not only more efficient, but also less invasive. Slab jacking requires large and unattractive holes in the concrete, whereas, injecting polyurethane requires small, penny-sized holes that can be strategically placed to your liking. A chemical reaction generates a foam to fix the underlying, long term issues. This process only requires a few minutes and instantly leaves your concrete at its fully functioning capacity. Not only is injecting polyurethane a quick and easy procedure, it is also a great step in increasing the property value of your home or business.
Slab Jacking is also referred to as mud jacking or pressure grouting and is a relatively old technology. Depending on your independent needs, slab jacking can be a more cost effective and environmentally friendly. However, curing your concrete woes with polyurethane is a wise financial investment for the long term.
