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.
