How much does mud jacking save vs. new concrete?
Mud Jacking may save you 60-70% over the cost of pouring new concrete, and will still give you a beautiful, level, and safe concrete surface. To put it simply, mud jacking usually costs in the hundreds of dollars, while brand new concrete will cost in the thousands.
How long does mud jacking last?
Because ground settling is always uncertain, just like any concrete work unfortunately mud jacking doesn't last forever. However, we have done mud jacking jobs over 15 years ago that are still holding strong today!
How does mud jacking compare to polyurethane foam?
At Concrete Repair Mud Jack Service we don't use polyurethane foam. We are true believers in traditional mud jacking and have seen beautiful results from our tried and true procedure since 1961! According to James Warner, a professional engineer, foam can't achieve the same results as traditional mud jacking.
“Because the injected material [foam] reacts and reaches its maximum volume in increments shortly following injection, significant voids remain after treatment. This was found to be the case when a bridge approach slab near the Denver airport that had been so treated [with foam] continued to settle and was subsequently removed,” wrote Warner, James, Professional Engineer, Author of the Practical Handbook of Grouting: Soil; Rock; and Structures.
