When is Mudjacking Appropriate?
Mudjacking has two main applications:
- Stabilizing Settling Foundation Footing or a Perimeter Wall: A foundation contractor will level settled sections of a foundation with push piers, using them to lift the masonry to a level position. When this is complete, mudjacking can be done to fill the empty space beneath the footing created by the lifting.
- Stabilizing Settling Concrete Slabs: This is used for non-looad bearing lightweight concrete structures. The slurry is injected underneath the concrete, lifting the slab back to position.
Especially in the case of a settling home foundation, mudjacking requires special equipment and is a professional job. All work should be done through a trained contractor who has excellent knowledge of local soil conditions and their requirements.
Additionally, mudjacking is not always the right solution for your foundation issue. A foundation contractor or structural engineer can meet with you to asses the problem and help make sure you won’t have to do further work in the future.
