Denver Mudjacking Offers Alternative To Concrete Replacement

When dealing with broken concrete, the initial instinct of most people is to get fresh concrete poured in. This is indeed one option, but a Denver mudjacking firm might be able to offer a better one. Mudjacking is remarkably effective at restoring concrete surfaces to their previous condition, and some would argue, make them even stronger and more durable than before. One thing is for sure: with a qualified and capable mudjacking team, your concrete will be in much better condition than it is in now.
The process of mudjacking a concrete surface is actually quite simple. It is especially effective for situations wherein slabs and individual sections have fallen into the ground at irregular angles. In such cases, small holes are drilled into the slabs through which a hose is pushed through. A mixture of concrete, gravel, and sand called slurry is then pumped into the ground underneath the concrete, raising up the individual slabs. When restored to the proper position, the hose is pulled out and the holes filled in.
So much for the process–why should you opt for mudjacking instead of replacement? Cost is one reason, and with most Denver mudjacking firms charging anywhere from 50% to 60% lower rates than concrete replacement, the reason is a compelling one.
Mudjacking also takes up much less time than replacement, with most projects requiring 24-hours at a maximum. If you would like your concrete repaired quickly without too much disruption to your routine, mudjacking is the way to go.
