The VDC Concrete Lifting Process

The VDC Concrete Lifting Process

Mudjacking, slabjacking, or concrete lifting is a time tested alternative to replacing sunken or uneven concrete, restoring sunken concrete slabs to their original grade at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Mudjacking has been a successful repair method for decades. Our process is also successful where void filling is the sole objective.

How Does Mudjacking Work?

A series of holes are drilled in an existing slab of concrete and a custom slurry mix is hydraulically pumped under settled concrete slabs, stabilizing the subsoil, filling the hollow areas under the slabs, and lifting the concrete to its original grade. The holes are then patched with cement leaving a strong, permanent support under the concrete surface.

Mudjacking has been successfully used to lift: walks, stoops, patios, driveways, garage floors, pool decks, slab homes, warehouse floors, and streets at a fraction of the cost of replacement.

The Benefits to Repairing Your Concrete vs. Replacing It

  • Economical, cost a fraction of replacement.
  • Removes trip hazards.
  • The work can be done in a matter of hours
  • There is little or no disruption to the landscaping.
  • Stabilizes the subsoil.
  • Fills the void area eliminating the penetration of water, animals & insects.

While most contractors in the mudjacking industry drill a 1 5/8" hole, we drill a much smaller 1" hole that patches up much nicer and leaves a great looking finished product.
