If you’re reading this blog, you’ve probably already found some concrete issues around your home and are looking for a solution.
If the issue is sinking or settling slabs, mud jacking is a technique that’s been around for decades.
The process involves mixing mud and concrete slurry and pumping it under a sinking slab. Slab jacking or grout pumping has its cons. It can be messy, unpredictable, and leave large holes in the concrete. Large holes in the concrete cut out room for the injection equipment. Also, the materials used can wash away over time, causing the same issues all over again.
There are modern alternatives to mud jacking, including the technique Vesta Foundation Solution uses – PolyLevel. It’s foam injected under a concrete slab that slowly expands and hardens. PolyLevel helps lead to a permanent solution that won’t wash away over time. The ports – or holes where a contractor injects the product under the concrete – are smaller than a dime.
