Slab jacking is the process by which uneven or settled slabs are raised. This is achieved by drilling a series of strategically placed holes, and then pumping the area with a low mobility grout mix. Sunken slabs can be raised to desired elevation with a high degree of accuracy.
Slab Jacking can be a cost effective and time saving alternative to removal and replacement of settled slabs. The savings with slab jacking increase dramatically when the area in question is an occupied interior space ie a residence or a commercial space that is in service. The cost of prepping the space for removal and replacement, in conjunction with down time as the concrete is poured and cured makes removal and replacement a very costly option.
Slab jacking is non invasive and can be executed with minimal disturbance to everyday operations. A crew can level the effected area without having to clear it of contents and inventory. Once the slab has been lifted it can return to service and receive normal traffic within 12 hours.
