What is Mudjack Soil?
Mudjack soil is typically made of a mixture of water, cement, sand, and clay. The specific proportions of these materials may vary depending on the specific needs of a particular job. FCE’s Mudjack Plus™ is a unique, proprietary, and organic blend of screened brown topsoil, sand and agricultural lime. The mudjack soil is mixed to a consistency that is thick enough to be pumped under the slab, but fluid enough to flow easily through the injection holes.
Mudjack soil is used to repair a variety of concrete surfaces, including sidewalks, driveways, patios, and garage floors.
It’s particularly effective for repairing concrete slabs that have shifted or settled due to soil movement, such as in areas with expansive clay soil.
Mudjacking is typically done by a professional contractor. The contractor will first assess the condition of the slab and determine the appropriate repair method. If mudjacking is deemed suitable, the contractor will drill small holes through the slab at strategic locations. The mudjack soil is then injected under the slab through these holes, using a specialized pump. As the soil is injected, it fills the voids under the slab and lifts it back into place.
Mudjacking is a cost-effective alternative to replacing broken or shifted concrete. It typically takes less time and money to repair a slab using mudjacking than it does to tear out the old slab and pour a new one. In addition, mudjacking is less disruptive than replacing concrete, as it can be done with minimal disruption to the surrounding area.
The longevity of mudjacking depends on a variety of factors, including the condition of the slab and the stability of the soil beneath it. In general, mudjacking can last for several years, but it may need to be repeated if the soil continues to shift or settle.
Overall, mudjacking is a useful tool for repairing broken or shifted concrete in a cost- effective and efficient manner. It can save time and money compared to replacing the concrete and is less disruptive than other repair methods.
