For all its strength and durability, concrete work will break down at some point. Your options then would be to replace it entirely, or to have it repaired. For the latter option, Denver mudjacking might just be the best course of action. If you haven't considered this option before, you definitely owe it to yourself to find out just how useful mudjacking can be.
Not many people think to repair concrete given the seeming permanence of the material. But concrete can actually be repaired to a surprising degree, effectively restoring it to its former condition or better. Mudjacking is a particularly effective process that could save your concrete work short of actually replacing the whole thing.
Mudjacking is especially useful for concrete work wherein the slabs have sunk into the ground below, resulting in an uneven surface that is unsightly and unattractive as much as it is dangerous. The process involves drilling holes into the concrete slabs and pumping a mixture of sand, gravel and concrete called slurry into them. As the slurry fills the gaps underneath, the slabs are raised up and repositioned. The result is a level surface that is just as solid and durable as the former concrete work.
In fact, your concrete may even be more reliable after mudjacking. Because slurry hardens into a form much more solid than earth, the concrete on top has a much firmer base on which to lay.
