Concrete Jack performs driveway repair by raising settled concrete back to its original position using slab jacking and foam jacking. This corrects settlement problems to fix trip hazards, improve drainage and fill voids under unsupported concrete.
Driveway Repair methods:
We perform two different process, slab jacking and foam jacking, which for driveway repair. Both process work to lift settled driveway concrete back to its original position. Mud jacking works to raise settled driveway concrete by injecting sand-based grout under the concrete. Foam jacking raises and supports settled driveway concrete by injecting high density polyurethane foam under the concrete. Both processes are cost effective for repairing settlement of concrete driveways.
Driveway problems that we repair using mud jacking include voids (air spaces) under driveways and driveway settlement. The most common cause of these problems is settlement of the underlying soil because it wasn’t packed down when the house was built or driveway was installed. Generally, it takes about 10 years for the backfill material to settle on its own after it is installed. Mud jacking and foam jacking tend to have slightly lower chances of resettlement than concrete replacement, which is the more common, and expensive, method for repairing sinking driveways.
Driveway Repair cost:
Generally, driveway repair using slab jacking and foam jacking costs around 1/2 the price of replacement. You may drive on driveways which have been lifting using mud jacking within a few hours of lifting, and you may drive on driveways which have been lifted using foam jacking immediately after the work is completed.
