What is Slabjacking/Concrete Jacking?
Slabjacking is a general term for all kinds of leveling processes. A-1 Concrete provides residential and commercial concrete slabjacking services for concrete slabs, patios, pools, sidewalks, driveways, steps, foundations, garages and warehouses. With little or no damage to the existing sidewalk, driveway and other surrounding structures and landscapes, Slab Jacking is a great and inexpensive alternative to concrete replacement in both residential and commercial applications.
Going back almost a century, slabjacking has been used in a variety of applications. Slabjacking concrete involves floating the slab up in small increments, which allows a controlled lift and provides the best protection for the concrete. Slabjacking services are best performed by experienced professionals that understand the right mix of materials and equipment to use in order to protect the integrity of the concrete without any damage to nearby structures.
A-1 drills a series of one-inch diameter holes through the slab and hydraulically pumps a limestone-based slurry beneath the slab. This material flows into all the voided areas and reestablishes the subsurface, effectively creating a new, stable sub-base. The concrete can be used immediately after the job is done.
Benefits of Slabjacking
- It can be done in virtually any weather.
- The material injected beneath the slab provides a strong base.
- There is little or no disruption to landscaping.
- A fraction of the cost of replacement.
- Utilized immediately, no downtime.

A-1 Concrete has done two jobs for me recently. The most difficult was replacement of the 36'x5.5' aggregate concrete surface of the porch of my home. They removed the 30 year old cracked and sunken concrete surface, tamped down the sand and gravel fill below the surface, installed all new flashing and plastic and poured a new aggregate surface. It looks beautiful and blends nicely with the aggregate concrete sidewalk in front of the porch. They also installed three tie rods and decorative cast iron anchor plates in the shape of stars to stabilize the exterior brick wall of the porch. The rods tie back through the main foundation wall at the back of the porch. This was a difficult bit of work and they completely met my expectations. They returned several times to get the cast iron anchor plates installed perfectly. A wonderful job which repaired the porch and added a beautiful architectural detail to the house!! The next was a sidewalk leveling and repair at my local church where I serve as a deacon. They leveled 10 sidewalk slabs in our 27 year old concrete sidewalk. They did a great job on the badly cracked and uneven sidewalk and their pricing was very reasonable. They were on time and did great work. A very good value!
