Posted in: concrete raising- Sep 08, 2015 No Comments

A short time ago, a couple contacted A1 Concrete Leveling & Foundation Repair. The couple’s Homewood driveway was looking all out of sorts, and was completely uneven, which was threatening to pop the tires of the homeowner’s and visitors to their home, due to the dangerously sharp corners of the driveway. The owners of the house worked together, side by side in the commercial food industry for many years, and they knew that quality concrete lifting Homewood needs would be best from A1’s mudjacking services.

A1 Concrete Leveling & Foundation Repair assured the couple that we would make their driveway safer with our concrete lifting. Mudjacking is a unique technique and repair that A1 Concrete Leveling & Foundation Repair specializes in. We can effectively raise sunken driveways without the expensive cost of having a concrete replacement driveway installed. Our mudjacking process includes drilling a series of small, one inch holes throughout the concrete slabs, then we use a hydraulic pump to add limestone slurry underneath the slab once it has been lifted. Once the process is done, then the driveway can be used immediately, which is why many homeowners choose concrete lifting Homewood specialists provide.

The couple came home from work and entered their driveway, and was surprised and ecstatic that the driveway was now safe for their vehicles, along with any guests that arrived at their home. The two can safely park and drive on the surface now, and another bonus is the driveway looks good too!
