When is Colorado Concrete Repair Appropriate?

In Colorado concrete repair can become necessary for a couple different reasons. Not all cases of sinking concrete are appropriate for mudjacking concrete repair and we will explain which ones are in this article:
Settling Foundation Footing or Perimeter Wall Needs Stabilized
During this application the perimeter wall of a foundation or other concrete perimeter settles causing the floor and walls to become uneven. To fix this problem a Colorado concrete repair specialist will determine which sections of the foundation have settled. Then they will use push piers to lift the concrete wall to the level position. Once the walls are completely level, holes are drilled in the appropriate areas for the mudjacking equipment. Then the concrete mixture is pumped underneath completing the leveling process. This solution is a great fix for load bearing concrete walls.
Settling Concrete Slabs Needs Stabilized
This type of mudjacking is used for non-load bearing concrete structures such as driveways, garage floors, sidewalks, foundation floors, and many other structures. This is a quicker and easier process in which no pre leveling is required. The mudjacking company simply determines the desired level of the structure, drills the holes for mudjacking equipment and pumps the concrete mixture to the desired level.
