Concrete sidewalks are unfortunately prone to sinking down over the years. Fortunately for our customers, we are experts in the art of lifting and leveling sidewalks back to their original position.
How We Can Help
Calling us as soon as you notice your sidewalk beginning to drop, or develop voids underneath the concrete, will save you as much money as possible.
The smaller the height of the drop or void, the cheaper your repairs will be. When we mudjack, we pump our specially designed Portland cement and soil slurry mix underneath your concrete at a very high pressure, pushing down the settling soil. This high pressure compacts the soil underneath your sidewalk, preventing further settling as much as possible. The sooner you call Boss Mudjacking, the sooner we can fix any small issues you may have, and prevent them from developing and causing much more costly damage in the future.
Some Common Examples of Sidewalk Issues
Uneven Sidewalk Sections
As soil settles, it doesn't always settle evenly. This means that any concrete resting on soil will not always settle evenly either.
Sidewalks are usually made up of smaller panels than driveways, meaning that each panel has more scope to shift independently of the others as the soil below it settles.
Sidewalk panels have the scope to become incredibly uneven, causing dangerous trip hazards.
Critters Nesting Under Sidewalks
When soil under sidewalks settles, it can often form voids. These spaces are perfect places for critters to nest, especially over the winter.
Mudjacking will fill these voids and prevent critters nesting and further damaging your sidewalks.
