What is mudjacking?
Concrete can very often sink or become unsupported or uneven as the soil below it settles over time. Mudjacking is the process of lifting, leveling and supporting said concrete. Small holes are drilled at strategic places in the concrete, and a Portland cement and soil slurry mixture is pumped through these holes at a very high pressure. This high pressure forces the settling soil below to become as compact as possible, therefore minimizing any further settling. Our mudjackers then continue to pump the slurry mixture until the concrete is forced to rise back up as close as possible to its original position.
Why not just replace my concrete instead of mudjacking it?
Replacing your driveway could run anywhere from $7,500 to $20, 000. Whilst it may increase your curb appeal, replacing concrete will very rarely actually increase the value of your home.
Mudjacking a driveway will rarely cost more than $2,500, saving you twice the amount of extra money that you would spend for even the cheapest replacement.
How much will mudjacking cost?
Our prices start at $600. This covers our base costs for material, gas, equipment & vehicle maintenance, and also helps to keep a roof over our heads back at HQ!
We take pride in our work, and are as eager as you are to see your concrete looking good and feeling safe once again. Quite simply, the less time and materials that we have to use to achieve our goals, the lower the cost will be to you.
Also, if cost is of great concern to you, we do offer a 12 months same-as-cash financing option for qualified customers. This allows you to have your mudjacking project completed when you need to, and pay for it when you can best afford it within the next 12 months.
What will affect the price of my mudjacking project?
Severity - The sooner you call us, the happier your wallet will be. Over time, the earth settles under concrete, either causing it to drop down immediately, or causing voids underneath it, which will eventually cause it to drop. Essentially, the smaller the voids under your concrete, the less expensive your mudjacking project will be.
Size - Obviously the size of the area that you would like us to repair has an impact on the cost, too. A small section of sidewalk that has sunk 1" will cost much less to repair than an entire driveway that has sunk 3".
Help thy neighbor! If you know of neighbors that also need mudjacking work, having your project completed at the same time as them can save you some money. Doing several jobs in one neighborhood significantly reduces our travel time and costs, and we of course pass this saving on to you.
