Frequently Asked Questions

Here are answers to some questions that we are frequently asked. If you have a question that is not answered by this web page, please call our office and one of our highly trained staff members will be glad to assist you.

Is Slabjacking a new technique?

No, Slabjacking has been used since the early 1930’s. Slabjacking has been a common practice in the Mid-West to East Coast of the U.S.

Do you resurface or put a coating on the concrete?

No, we raise the concrete and patch the holes with a high strength, fast setting patch material, then the concrete is rinsed off with water.

Can Slabjacking be done in the rain?

Yes, Slabjacking can be performed in any weather as long as the Truck and Equipment can get to the job site safely.

Have you done work in my area?

Probably, Call our office for references in your area.

Do you pump concrete under our slab?

No, we use a blended material made up of non-organic soil, fine sand, water, and Portland Cement. Our material weighs approx. half the weight of concrete and is ideal for replacing the soil that has settled or washed away under your slab.

How much does it cost?

Every job has different variables that we have to consider to give an accurate estimate of cost. On an average we save customers anywhere between 40% to 90% over the cost of removal and replacement. Imagine what costs could be accrued if a slab that has fallen and drains water into a foundation or basement were not to be solved and if person falls and injures themselves on a trip-hazard that has not been fixed.

How long does it take and how long before I can use my concrete again?

Most jobs are completed within one day and can be walked on just minutes after the holes are patched. Cars can be driven and parked only 24hrs after job is completed.

Is your work guaranteed?

Yes, We offer a guarantee against resettlement for as long as you own your home and a 3 year transferable guarantee if your home is up for sale . We will also help to locate the reason for settlement and advise on how to remedy the problem.
