If there is any one service that can help you deal with virtually every concrete-related problems you have the misfortune to experience, it would have to be a Colorado mudjacking firm. Broken up concrete, unevenly situated slabs, and sloping floors are only some of the scenarios for which mudjacking can be beneficial.

If your sidewalk has that characteristic tombstone-like appearance caused by slabs that have sunk into the ground in irregular positions, you are a good candidate for mudjacking. The process is also suitable for basements or garages wherein the cement floor has sloped at a dangerous angle.Insuch scenarios, the ground underneath the concrete may have settled or been hollowed out by flowing water, leaving huge gaps. When the individual concrete sections slide down into these gaps over time, the surface begins to take on an uneven look. This is not only unappealing to look at, but presents a serious safety hazard as well.
When you call in a Colorado mudjacking firm to deal with the problem, they will likely drill holes into the fallen concrete slabs and pump slurry (a mixture of concrete, gravel, and sand) into the gaps in the earth underneath. As the holes fill up with slurry, the concrete is restored to its former position.
Mudjacking is quite a simple process, but there are a few other steps involved. If you would like to know more, call Cascade Mudjacking at 303-840-4725.
