What is Concrete Lifting? Slabjacking?
Concrete leveling, Concrete raising,
Concrete lifting, is also referred as Mudjacking and Slabjacking
It is actually more straightforward than you might think The Concrete Lifting Contractor will come to your home, drill a hole in the concrete slab that is causing you trouble, and then inject a mixture of pond sand and concrete (commonly referred to as “grout”) beneath the slab in order to raise it up.
The grout fills the void beneath the slab that is causing it to sink, then pressurizes and hydraulically lifts the slab up to its original position. The process takes a few hours to complete, and your concrete slab should be ready for regular use again within a day after the work is finished. It is a very cost effective, and efficient way to fix sunken sidewalks, driveways, patios, basement floors, and even foundation walls. If you’re experiencing sunken concrete slabs on your property, mudjacking is a quick and easy way to get things back to their original state!
Concrete Lifting – Mudjacking Pros
Concrete Lifting Cost less:
Slabjacking usually costs less than half the cost of new concrete and sometimes far less.

Many times the jacked concrete can be driven or walked on the same day we repair it. Whereas new concrete involves the demolition and removal of the concrete, pouring new concrete, and cure time of the fresh concrete. This process can take up to two weeks or more.

Our old concrete pathway along side of our house needed concrete lifting. Communication was great and the service was performed as scheduled and on time. They provided the estimate and it was professional and prompt!The repair work was excellent and they took the time to make sure that the levelling was as good as it can be and as I was satisfied. The pathway is blending nicely with our driveway! Thank you Active Concrete Lifting for a job well done!

We could not be more pleased with the work completed and would recommend them to anyone looking to have concrete work done. The team was professional, responsive and we overall dont have anything negative to remark!Thank you Active Concrete!

Concrete Lifting FAQ
Here are some answers to frequent question that we are asked about Concrete Lifting - Slab jacking. If you have a question that is not answered by this page please call our office and one of our highly trained staff members will be glad to assist you.
Concrete Lifting - Slabjacking / Mudjacking FAQ
1. What made my concrete settle ?
There are many reasons why concrete settles. Some of the most common are:
WATER EROSION - Water infiltrating the subbase (the base beneath the slab). The common sources are open joints or cracks in the slab, gutters that channel the rainwater towards the slab, and poor drainage.
BURROWING ANIMALS - In our area chipmunks are tireless burrowers. Once begun, the hollows are prime location for snakes, wasps, and other rodents as well as making a perfect place for water to collect.
INSUFFICIENT COMPACTION - Uncompacted or poorly compacted subbase will tend to settle over time. The concrete slab with no support below will naturally follow the subbase down as it settles.
2. Why raise the concrete instead of replacing?
Concrete Lifting AKA Slabjacking has many advantages over new, the most important of which are:

CONVENIENCE - One of the advantages we are complimented on the most is the convenience of our process. There is no heavy equipment on the lawns or landscaping,
and the noise is at a minimum.
3. How much does Concrete Lifting cost ?
Every job has different variables that we have to consider to give an accurate estimate of cost. On an average we save customers anywhere between 40% to 90% over the cost of removal and replacement.
Imagine what costs could be accrued if a slab that has fallen and drains water into a foundation or basement were not to be solved and if person falls and injures themselves on a triphazard that has not been fixed.
Slabjacking is usually less than half the cost of pouring new slabs. However, the savings may be even greater, since demolition and removal costs are eliminated, and no landscaping is required.
4. How long does it take ?
Most jobs are completed within one day and can be walked on just minutes after the holes are patched. Cars can be driven and parked only 24hrs after job is completed.
5. Is Concrete Lifting - Slabjacking - Mud Jacking a new technique ?
No, Slabjacking has been used since the early 1930’s.
6. Do you resurface or put a coating on the concrete ?
No, we raise the concrete and patch the holes with a high strength, fast setting patch material, then the concrete is rinsed off with water.
7. Can Concrete Lifting - Slabjacking - Mudjacking be done in the rain ?
Yes, Slabjacking can be performed in any weather as long as the Truck and Equipment can get to the job site safely.
8. Have you done work in my area ?
Probably, Call our office at 604-541-4121 for references in your area.
9. Do you pump concrete under our slab ?
No, we use a blended material made up of non-organic soil, fine sand, water, and cement. Our material weighs approx. half the weight of concrete and is ideal for replacing the soil that has settled or washed away under your slab.
10. Is your work guaranteed ?
We offer a 5 year transferable guarantee for concrete lifting and stabilizing works. We will also help to locate the reason for settlement and advise on how to remedy the problem.
