Concrete leveling - also known as mudjacking, slab raising and slabjacking - can be used where concrete foundation slabs have started to sink, tilt or become uneven. Concrete leveling also has other functions - maybe your concrete driveway is showing signs of damage, or you have concrete decking in your yard which needs some attention. We will be happy to assess and make recommendations for any concrete slab surface which has suffered damage - and it’s good to know that our leveling processes are efficient and much cheaper than replacement in most cases.

What causes concrete slabs to sink or become uneven?
Concrete slabs can sink or suffer damage if the soil under them shifts or contracts. This can happen due to drought or excess rain, or because the surface was not properly prepared before the concrete was initially poured. You may also face issues if there are cracks in the concrete. Even small hairline cracks can allow water into the soil under the slab, which then expands and contracts, causing shifts to the slab.
Why do I need concrete leveling?
Firstly, it’s worth noting that leaving a damaged concrete surface will likely cause further issues in the long run. Sinking foundation slabs can cause long term structural problems in the property. If you have an uneven driveway, you’re asking for problems with the vehicles which pass over it. And if your concrete problem is in your yard, leaving it untreated means a less pleasant environment and trip hazards to avoid. Getting a concrete leveling service is much cheaper, easier and environmentally responsible than replacing your concrete slab. There’s no need to damage the area around the concrete slab, and the job is relatively quick. Call in Foundation Repair & Waterproofing in Springfield, MO if you think you need our services.
How is concrete leveling done?
Concrete leveling involves pumping a slurry grout mixture underneath the concrete slab to level and raise it. By filling any gaps in the soil under the slab, the concrete is stabilised and can be moved back into the correct position using precision pumps. This is not a job that can be done by homeowners, and not something to leave to a contractor who does not have specific experience and tools. If you have a damaged concrete foundation slab, floor, driveway or sidewalk, leave it to our professional crew to help advise and fix the problem.
