FAQs

WHAT SIZE ARE THE LIFT HOLES?
The holes that are drilled are 1 1/2" and patched with a mortar.

ARE THE PATCHED HOLES NOTICEABLE?
The holes that are drilled to lift your concrete will be noticeable because we are putting a fresh patch on aged concrete. Over time, the patch holes will blend in with the existing concrete making them less noticeable.

WHAT ABOUT THE EXISTING CRACKS IN MY CONCRETE?
The cracks that are present in your concrete will still exist after the lifting process. Atlas Concrete does not provide crack repair, that would be up to the homeowner. Concrete caulk is the best product for filling cracks and can be purchased at your local home improvement stores.

HOW LONG BEFORE WE CAN USE THE AREA THAT WAS LIFTED?
Most of the areas can be used immediately, caution should be used not to disturb the small patch holes until they dry (approx. 24 hours). Garage floors and driveways should be left unused for 24 hours.

IS THERE A WARRANTY?
Yes, our work is guaranteed for 2 years.

MUDJACKING PROCESS

A STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTION
Concrete Lifting is a time tested alternative to replacing sunken or uneven concrete, restoring sunken concrete slabs to their original grade at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Mudjacking has been a successful repair method for decades. Our process is also successful where void filling is the sole objective.  Other names for our service include mudjacking, slabjacking and pressure grouting all are the same process.

How Does Mudjacking Work?
A series of holes are drilled in an existing slab of concrete, a custom slurry mix is hydraulically pumped under settled concrete lifting slabs, stabilizing the subsoil, filling the void under the slabs and lifting the concrete to it's original grade. The holes are then patched with cement leaving a strong, permanent support under the concrete surface.
