Mudjacking in San Antonio
Professional Concrete Lifting Services
Similar to foundation construction, concrete slabs can shift, sink, or break due to soil movement. When gaps form underneath parts of slab, the lack of support leads to cracks and loss of leveling. Mudjacking involves injecting grout through and underneath a slab to support and lift concrete into position.
To ensure safety and prevent hazards, it is important to keep concrete slabs in good condition. Uneven slabs can be dangerous and create accessibility problems for some individuals. Ram Jack Texas - Central/South provides concrete lifting and repair for all kinds of property types:

How Mudjacking Works
- 2" holes are drilled into the concrete
- A solution of grout (cement + other material) is injected into concrete
- The grout mixture expands underneath the slab
- The slab is lifted back into place
- The grout dries and stabilizes the slab
- Holes are sealed and cleaned
Why Mudjacking Is Popular for Concrete Lifting / Leveling
It Is Fast
Unless a large number of slabs are involved (for example: repairing a sidewalk or walkways at a public park), the process can be completed in a single day, often within a matter of hours.
It Is Less Expensive Than Other Methods
Replacing slabs can sometimes cost twice as much as mudjacking. There are other costs that are avoided as well like hauling away concrete and needing to redo landscaping.
It Can Be Done Regardless of Weather
Concrete pouring for a new slab is limited by the weather conditions. Mudjacking has no such limitation and can be done rain or shine.
It Is More Aesthetically Pleasing
Pouring new concrete next to old concrete can cause coloration mismatches. This can be unsightly in some circumstances.
It is Less Damaging to Property
There is no lawn damage in mudjacking. Pouring concrete, on the other hand, can cause landscaping problems that need to be corrected.
