Mudjacking - A Solution to Sinking Concrete
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.
The Benefits of Repair
- Economical, cost a fraction of replacement
- Removes trip hazards
- The work can be done in a matter of hours
- There is little or no disruption to the landscaping
- Stabilizes the subsoil
- Fills the void area eliminating the penetration of water, animals & insects
The Mudjacking Process
A series of holes are drilled in an existing slab of concrete, a custom slurry mix is pumped under settled concrete slabs, stabilizing the subsoil, filling the follow areas 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.

Atlas raised 4 slabs (4’x5’) on front entry sidewalk and 4 driveway slabs (10’x10’). Inspected the site beforehand and explained the proposal. Job was scheduled within a week or so and the crew showed up as scheduled. They explained the approach and got the work done in under 2 hours including filling the holes drilled and site cleanup. The owners responded promptly to any questions I had. I would definitely use the company again.
Our experience was very positive from working with Helen in scheduling and Mark explaining the process and addressing my questions and concerns. My driveway apron and first slabs had settled an inch to an inch and a half. It was especially noticeable where it joined against the house foundation. This would funnel rainwater towards my basement foundation which on a couple extremely heavy storms caused water infiltration in our finished basement. I had my own personal speedbumps entering and exiting our garage, and tripping hazards on a few sidewalk panels. All this is no longer a problem thanks to the fine people at Atlas Concrete Lifting. All slabs are as good as new (levelwise) including the sidewalk slabs. Michael and Brandon (Let's go ...😊) did excellent work. I appreciated their attention to detail in all phases of the job. They even left our landscape flowers undamaged and nothing for me to clean up. I followed their work up with caulking the panels that were leveled to prevent any future reoccurrence. Would I use their service again and recommend them to others? I definitely would. Thank you Atlas Concrete Lifting for giving me piece of mind, and leveled concrete panels, no more speed bumps or tripping hazards. It looks much better too.
Atlas did a great job raising our front walkway. There had apparently been some erosion underneath and this caused the slab to crack and sink. When walking, we could hear there was a hollow area beneath.
They came when scheduled and the work was done as promised. We are very happy with the results. Additionally, we also feel the work done and service for the price was a great value. Thank you!
We needed a team to lift the deck of our pool during some work we were having done. Helen was fantastic at helping coordinate the time on quoting and scheduling the work, while communicating regularly. Mark explained thoroughly what work would need to be done in order to get a quote completed, and gave us the right recommendation on scheduling for the right time of year. By the time the new season arrived, Helen contacted me as expected, and we got a time scheduled, and Mike arrived right on time, even through inclement weather, which helped our work to stay on track. They did a clean job sealing the holes, and even tried to match the rough surface of our deck. Mike communicated each time they needed to adjust as they lifted the concrete, and explained why and how they would adjust so that we knew exactly what to expect. All around, it was a fantastic experience working with Atlas Concrete. It can be difficult to find punctual, and reliable teams to help achieve work on your home, while also receiving clear and regular communication, and Atlas Concrete checked all these boxes. I couldn't recommend them enough! Thank you!
Excellent! The driveway slabs are perfectly leveled now. Atlas was a joy to work with. They were responsive and honest in their quote and scheduling was seamless with great communication. The crew showed up on time and were extremely hardworking and professional. Our driveway and apron adjacent to the garage looks fantastic.
