The mudjacking process starts by drilling several, quarter-sized holes into the cement slab. Next, a combination of water, sand, cement and other materials are hydraulically injected underneath the slab.
The hydraulic nature of the material’s implementation – being under extreme pressure – lifts the uneven and sunken concrete slab into its original position. In many cases, Reno mudjacking is sufficient to meet this goal. However, the mud used in mudjacking can add up to 150 pounds per cubic foot to the underside of the slab. If the soil or slurry fill was not correctly and completely compacted, the weakness can remain and voids will continue to arise.
There are plenty of Reno-based projects where mudjacking would be a fine solution. Then again, there are many Reno Concrete Leveling and Lifting projects that were significantly improved through the use of polyurethane spray foam. Either way, we have the tools, knowledge, and experience to perform these tasks to your exact specifications.
With the combination of modern knowledge and technology, PolyLevel Spray foam has many advantages over the commonly used mudjacking:
