"On the Job" Conrete Raising & Restoration Work

Below is a snapshot of the work that Triple A Concrete Raising Co. does on a daily basis for our residential and commercial customers throughout the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago.

Mudjacking is a process of raising settled concrete slabs by drilling holes through the slab and pumping a sand/cement mixture under the slab.  This process allows the slab to be “floated” back to it’s original position.

Mudjacking is commonly referred to as slabjacking, grout pumping, pressure grouting, and other similar terms, but they all mean the same thing – raising settled concrete slabs.

Mudjacking can be performed to raise a wide variety of concrete slabs: driveways, sidewalks, patios, porches, garage floors, slab garages, basement floors, slab houses, steps, swimming pool aprons – the list goes on and on.

Lets not forget about those pesky rodents that like to dig holes under the concrete slabs.  These voids that are caused from animals, erosion, or just plain settlement also provide a lovely home for such critters as ground squirrels, spiders, bees, mice or rats, and a variety of other pests.

Step 1: A pattern of 1 1/2 inch diameter
holes are drilled through the sunken slab.

Step 2: A mixture of sand, clay and cement
under the slab.  Once the voide is filled, the
slurry becomes pressurized and hydraulically
raises the slab to the desired height.

Step 3:  The holes are then patched
with cement.
