Replacing old concrete can be quite expensive, because it needs to be torn out and then re-poured. Some homeowners assume that old, broken concrete needs to be completely redone, but the truth is that there are cheaper options if you are looking for a way to save money. Before you tear out that old concrete, contact a Colorado mudjacking company to find out about the other options that are available.
When Mudjacking Should be Considered
Colorado mudjacking is the perfect solution if you have a concrete surface that is uneven or beginning to buckle. This buckling is common in driveways and sidewalks, especially when the ground underneath has shifted. Over time, it is possible for concrete slabs to become worn down and move around because of the shifting earth. Gaps develop in the concrete, which can be quite dangerous for anyone walking in the area. Another problem is that the broken concrete can look unsightly, and actually decrease the value of the property.
When mudjacking is used to repair the concrete, a mixture called "slurry" is pumped beneath the concrete. Slurry is mad of gravel, sand, and cement, and it is pumped through holes in the concrete, in order to develop a stronger base below the concrete slab. Typically, the reinforced concrete is stronger than it was before the mudjacking technique was applied.
