Concrete settling and sinking is quite common. It occurs when the soil, at the time of installation, was not compacted properly, or when water runoff is not channeled properly. Concrete sinking may also happen due to the simple natural settling of earth over time.
Concrete lifting is the process of filling the voids under concrete, which results in the lifting of the concrete slab.
Homeowners, property owners and businesses may experience concrete becoming uneven on:
Any of these situations can pose significant safety and potential liability issues.
It is simple math. Concrete contractors must make up to three trips to a location to replace a simple slab of concrete with removal, framing, pouring, removal of framing material and cutting. Add to this the ever growing problem of environmental constraints of concrete disposal: the replacement of a simple 10’x10’ piece of driveway, walkway, or pool deck can cost upwards of a $2000.
Be environmentally friendly! Repair your concrete instead of replacing it!
We always get the question, "Is foam better than mudjacking?" Our answer to this is, mudjacking has been around longer than foam. In most cases, the price of foam is so expensive we could almost replace the concrete for what they charge to use the foam! The idea of repairing your concrete isn't supposed to cost the same or even close to the same amount of replacing it. Mudjacking is usually around 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of replacement!
The success behind a good mudjacking job is the lift. Lifting means getting the concrete back to level. On a technical note, pressures are used to lift the concrete (PSI). The foam's max PSI is around 1500 with the right equipment. Mudjacking's PSI is around 3500. With a higher PSI at your disposal you can get those tougher lifts accomplished and have a much happier homeowner!
Concrete raising is a cost effective way to avoid completely replacing your sunken or settled concrete.
Mudjacking is a repair method for lifting concrete slabs that have settled over time with Lime and Portland.
Voidfill fills the air space under concrete to prevent breaking.
Sidewalk repair can eliminate uneven sections of sidewalks creating a safer walking path.
Concrete leveling is a procedure that attempts to correct an uneven concrete surface by altering the foundation that the surface sits on.
Filling air spaces under garage floors can prevent concrete breakage.
Slabjacking is a process used to correct concrete slabs that have sunken over time. Holes are drilled through the slab and materials are forced through the holes to raise the slab.
Patio leveling can promote proper water drainage and help to prevent costly damage.

Did a great job with a void fill. The company was very friendly, prompt and professional. Price was extremely reasonable. If I need a company to do this type of work again, I would look to them.- Dave K
I offer my strongest recommendation for Advance Void Fill & Mud Jacking. I met Josh Bultmann at the Home Show. He visited the house and gave me an estimate for my small job. He told me that if I could wait, he could combine my small job with another local job reducing his costs and saving me money. Within a couple weeks, his crew made the repairs. I wasn't home but I was able to observe with our security cameras. ...- Dean B
Great crew! From start to finish these guys knew what they were doing, and were super nice about my husband watching the process over their shoulder. It was so neat to watch my garage floor lift up to meet the walls again. No more cracks! They called when they said they would call, and stood by their quote. They did the job quickly, and didn't leave a mess when they were done. I was impressed!- Jenn D
