Mudjacking in Marietta
Concrete Lifting Services Available in Charleston, Parkersburg, & Across West Virginia
In all its forms, concrete slab can be vulnerable to the same soil settling problems that home foundations are prone to. When soil settles, the voids formed under the slab can cause the entire slab to sink or to begin cracking from lack of support. Through grout injection, mudjacking returns underlying stability to a concrete slab and lifts it to its proper level.
Concrete surfaces that are cracked or uneven are hazardous and can lead to trip accidents for vulnerable individuals. At Moran Construction, Inc., we can repair and lift concrete slabs for any purpose, in just about any setting:
- Garage Floors

The concrete raising process is simple, efficient, cost-effective, and fast. Here is how it works:
- Holes are drilled into the slab
- Environmentally safe grout mixture is pumped into and under the slab
- The grout fills and pressurizes the space underneath the slab until it is lifted into position
- The grout dries and hardens into place
- The holes are patched
The Numerous Benefits of Concrete Lifting
Concrete lifting through mudjacking (also called slabjacking) has several characteristics and benefits that make it the best solution in most cases.
The whole process can be completed in one day, unless the project involves multiple instances of slab (like a sidewalk repair job for a neighborhood block). You can also avoid pouring new concrete, which can involve many days of drying.
Mudjacking allows one to avoid the costs of demolishing and re-pouring concrete. This usually makes it the cheaper option. Costs for hauling away the concrete and landscaping the area are also avoided.
Less Invasive & Destructive
As was mentioned previously, there are no additional needs for landscaping. Removing concrete to redo a slab from scratch can involve excavation and damage to a yard, garden, or green space.
