Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost Per Square Foot

Many sources across the web try to put a price range per square foot on concrete leveling, but this is not an accurate way to calculate the price of any concrete leveling method, including stone slurry grout.

Instead, professionals look at the total amount of lifting needed (which may be more than it looks at first glance) and the depth of the voids under the slabs when calculating the final cost.

By just measuring the square footage of the surface, you’d miss a lot of the important details that influence the actual price. For this reason, we don’t have a clear-cut answer to this question here at A-1.

How Much Does Stone Slurry Grout Concrete Leveling Cost by Service Area?

Sidewalk Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

On the low end, lifting 2 to 6 sections of sidewalk with stone slurry grout could cost $750. For this price point, the sidewalk shouldn’t have settled more than 2 to three inches and shouldn’t be leaning too heavily to one side.

On the higher end, an entire length of sidewalk that may be leaning heavily to one side, has a large void underneath, or requires 4+ inches of lifting could cost around $2,400.

Garage Floor Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

For a small corner of a garage that only requires a minor lift, the cost of stone slurry grout leveling may be around $900, on the lower end of the spectrum.

On the other hand, a bigger 3 or 4-car garage that requires a more extensive lift could cost around $4,500 when using stone slurry grout.

Porch Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

Stone slurry grout leveling could cost around $1,200 for a smaller-sized porch (up to around 165 square feet).

On the higher end of the pricing spectrum, a larger wrap-around style porch that needs to be lifted 4 or more inches and has a large void (6+ inches) underneath would cost around $6,000.  

Pool Deck Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

Stone slurry grout leveling on 4 to 6 sections of a concrete pool deck may cost around $1,500.

If the entire pool deck + additional connected patio areas have to be raised, and there are large (6+ inches) voids throughout, stone slurry grout leveling could cost around $4,400.

Note: It’s common to have larger voids under concrete pool decks when compared to other areas, like sidewalks or small patios. These larger voids usually mean a higher final cost.

Driveway Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

A small-scale driveway lift (1 to 2 concrete panels) using stone slurry grout leveling may cost around $900.

Stone slurry grout leveling an entire larger driveway that has larger voids underneath and requires more lifting could cost around $4,200. This price could also include areas in a second horseshoe driveway or parking area.

Steps Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

Stone slurry grout leveling a small set of concrete steps (2 to 4 steps) that requires minimal lifting (2 to 3 inches) could cost around $990 on the lower end of the pricing spectrum.

A large set of steps (6+ steps) that require a moderate to large amount of lifting could cost around $2,400 on the higher end.

Note: To get an even grade leading up to the steps, the adjoining sidewalk often needs to be lifted, as well. This can add to the final price of the lift.

Patio Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

Lifting up a small patio (around 100 to 150 square feet) 2 inches or less with stone slurry grout may cost around $900 on the lower end.

On the other hand, a larger patio (350+ square feet) with large voids or that needs a large amount of lifting to get it back into the right position may cost around $3,500.

Interior Floor Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

Stone slurry grout leveling the concrete floor in 1 to 2 rooms could cost around $1,400 if it requires minimal lifting and there aren’t many obstacles to navigate around (e.g. cabinetry, bathrooms, additional rooms).

On the higher end of the spectrum, 4 to 6 rooms that are harder to access and need a moderate amount of lifting could cost around $6,000 for stone slurry grout concrete leveling.  

AC Pad Stone Slurry Grout Leveling Cost

A small A/C pad that requires minimal lifting could cost around $750 if there’s easy access to the A/C unit.

Stone slurry grout leveling a larger A/C pad that has to be lifted more, has a tighter working area, and/or has larger voids under the slab could cost around $1,400

What Influences the Cost of Stone Slurry Grout Leveling?

  • Size

How many slabs need to be lifted to get an even grade + the depth and quantity of voids underneath the slabs are what make up the size of a leveling job.

The more slabs that need lifting and the deeper the voids that need to be filled, the more time and limestone slurry material are needed to successfully complete the job, which means a higher final cost.

  • Accessibility

Any obstacles in the way of the lifting site (e.g. fences, pipes, tree roots, etc.) combined with how hard it is to arrive at the site itself with the stone slurry grout leveling equipment can influence the cost.

Easier-to-access areas, like a driveway or front walkway, will usually be less expensive to level with stone slurry grout than a backyard pool deck with lots of plumbing and fences to work around.

  • Location

Material and labor costs depend on the cost of living in your area. This may make the final price of your stone slurry grout concrete leveling project higher or lower than the example ranges provided in this article.

  • Material

The stone slurry grout mixture pumped under the slabs is made of all-natural materials, which are less expensive than synthetic foams. This is part of what makes stone slurry grout leveling more cost-effective than foam, especially for large repairs.

Here at A-1 Concrete Leveling, we use locally sourced limestone for our stone slurry grout leveling compound, which helps support the local economy and reduce transportation costs, which would typically be passed on to customers.

Stone Slurry Grout vs. Polyjacking vs. Mudjacking Cost

Stone slurry grout leveling is usually the midway point when it comes to professional concrete lifting costs; it’s more expensive than mudjacking but less expensive than foam leveling.

This is because the specialized equipment allows for more accurate results but requires our teams to take a little more time on the jobs to ensure the most optimal outcomes. The natural, locally sourced materials are also more cost-effective than the synthetic chemicals used in foam concrete lifting.
