What is Mudjacking?

Mudjacking Chicagoland

A lot of people have heard the term mudjacking before but most have no idea what it means, or what it is a solution for. Mudjacking is sometimes referred to as pressure grouting or can also be called concrete leveling. So what is mudjacking? Mudjacking is a safe, inexpensive way to raise or level concrete.

There are so many applications for this for your your home or business:

  • Sidewalks
  • Basement Floors
  • Walkways
  • Stoops
  • Stairs
  • Driveways
  • Pool decks
  • Garage floors
  • Patios
  • Other Concrete Slabs
  • Void Filling
Chicago Mudjacking and Concrete Repair

Using a technique that involves pumping grout through a pipe into the problem area, we can safely and easily raise and level concrete. Never trip on that pesky sidewalk crack again. Fill that void under your driveway created by chipmunks or moles that is causing your driveway to sink and crack. Chicagoland winters can make the ground around your sidewalk or driveway shrink – when this occurs it causes settlement of your driveway or sidewalk which causes cracking and breaking. Mudjacking is a great solution to this problem.

How Mudjacking Works

United Structural Systems will drill holes through the concrete surface. Then grout that is under pressure is pushed through piles that are inserted into the drilled holes. This can access any void or raise any section of sinking or collapsed concrete. We are able to raise to the desired grade and make the concrete level again. Pretty much any rigid surface or pavement can be raised using this method. It is very common to lift up to a foot or even more. Using the technology that is available to us today at United Structural Systems we can raise and level to almost an exact amount.
