A1: Mudjacking Orland Park

A1’s concrete leveling procedure is fast, permanent, and cost effective.  All we do is drill a small hole (about the size of a quarter) into the sunken cement, then hydraulically pump a patented compound underneath the concrete to lift it back up to level ground. It’s extremely effective for solid cement slabs (not cracked slabs).

A1’s Orland Park concrete leveling experience is extensive.  We have worked on driveways, sidewalks, patios, cement floors, garage floors.  As an older town, we often see Orland Park concrete has sunk, or become loose.  This alone is not pleasing to the eye, but it also can cause further damage to any surrounding cement, or the surrounding construction.

Driveway: Over the years Orland Park concrete leveling has been a big part of our business.  Newer cement drive ways can sometimes sink down due to unforeseen issues with the soil, but we have been there to help out all our wonderful Orland Park customers.

Sidewalks: A lot of our Orland Park concrete leveling jobs have been sidewalk slabs that have sunk down, creating a dangerously uneven walkways, and an eyesore on your property.  One of the problems with replacing concrete slabs completely is that the cement in Orland Park is usually older, making it impossible to match the color.  Leveling the concrete is a permanent, and effective way to improve safety and the look of your walkways.

Patios: Patios are an awesome place to have friends over for a few drinks on a beautiful Orland Park summer night!  It can be extremely disappointing to discover that part of your patio is sinking, causing uneven ground and putting the rest of the patio’s construction at risk.  Our Orland Park concrete leveling procedure can save you some dough, save that patio, and bring the party back to your back yard, where it should be!

Steps: Many of the foundations of Orland Park steps are laid with concrete.  Having slighting slanted steps may seem like a minor annoyance in the summer, but it can be a real hazard come Illinois winter.  Ice and snow on a slanted surface is not a good combination.  Our Orland Park concrete leveling services can level your steps at a fraction of the cost of replacing them.

Slabjacking / Mudjacking: Orland Park, IL

The method that we use when we level concrete in Orland Park is called “slabjacking”, otherwise known as “mudjacking”.  The method has been around for decades and has proven to be inexpensive and a great permanent solution.  It has slowly been improved over the years.  Originally, mud was pumped in underneath the concrete slabs to lift them up.  Today, we use a compound that is much more effective than mud.  We drill very small holes in the slab and pump our compound underneath, raising the slab.  The compound we use then hardens quickly, so you can walk or even drive on the cement slab almost immediately.
