Frequently Asked Concrete Questions

What is HydraulLIFT, Inc/ mudjacking?
Mudjacking (also known as concrete lifting/ slabjacking) is the process of pumping a lifting material under concrete slabs.  The lifting material spreads out, fills any voids and gently lifts the sunken concrete slab to original grade.

What can be mudjacked?
Virtually any slab of concrete can be mud jacked including: sidewalks, patios, pool decks, garage floors, driveways, factory floors, approaches and stairs/ stoops.
 

What is void filling?
Void filling is performed by pumping our environmentally safe lifting material mixture through a hose or nozzle to fill in empty areas under the slabs left by erosion or animal habitation.
 
 
How long before repaired areas can be used?
Slabs can be walked on as soon as work has been completed in most cases.  When concrete driveways or garage floors are raised, we recommend a 48 hour waiting period before vehicles are driven on them.
