Don’t want settled concrete? Then deal with drainage.

A big part of eliminating settled concrete is to plan your drainage system. Addressing runoff will pay dividends for years to come not only in reduced settling but in keeping basement dry and foundation stable.

Some communities do not allow gutters to be directed into storm drains or into the municipal sewer system and therefore must be handled by French drains and simple sloping of top soils to direct runoff well away from structures.

Time spent planning where water will go and the amount anticipated is something your builder should do, if not have a conversation about getting water well away from any concrete walks, drives, porches, etc.

Time and planning spent here can save a significant amount of money and headache down the road.

If that didn’t happen and you are dealing with settled concrete give us a call, we can help.

Slab curl

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

In addition to raising settled concrete we repair slabs that have “curled” While this is generally a industrial/warehouse problem that has a lot of fork lift traffic we have repaired residential shops with this problem too.

What is slab curl? Slab curl is something that can happen when concrete cures. When concrete is poured the underside, because of shading, soil moisture and temperature cures more slowly causing  the top side to bow up like a dish. At control joints this creates slight voids as the slab lifts off the supporting soil. The result is flexing at the joint when passing loads are placed on it which can cause more settling, damage to the joint and eventual cracking back from the joint.

Slab curl can be a problem in places with heavy vehicle or fork lift traffic and should be dealt with early on to avoid joint deterioration and slab cracking.

The best method for slab curl stabilization is Geo-polymer injection. A dense polymer is injected along the joint filling the void under the concrete. Further repair can include concrete grinding along the high or curled side of the concrete slab which helps extend the life of the repair.

If you are dealing with sunken and settled concrete or slab curl call the concrete raising and leveling professionals today,

Surgical precision when it comes to raising settled concrete

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

One of the things we pride ourselves on is seeing the total elimination of trip hazards, it takes more than just “eying it” to achieve that level of precision.

We use extremely sophisticated pumping equipment that meters material by the tenth of a pound, monitoring gauges that measure movement to the thousandth of an inch and digital levels that sense movement as little as five hundredths of a degree.

Some may say this is overkill for the industry, (competitors unwilling to invest in the technology) but we feel that not only does it make precision lifting concrete easier, it greatly reduces the possibility of fracturing the concrete slab.

As concrete binds on other slabs or structures the possibility of cracking increases. When we monitor lift with extremely sensitive gauges we can see when binding begins and mitigate the problem if possible, before fracturing occurs. We do this by saw cutting joints along with other methods that help the concrete slide past obstacles.

While no company, 1-855-752-2522 included, warranties against cracks, the use of these tools greatly  assists us in providing surgical precision with minimal risk of slab fractures.

Hard to believe isn’t it? The top picture demonstrates what a tree root can do, the picture below show what Geo-polymer Slabjacking can do. Completely leveling three driveway slabs in about two hours. Can you see the holes after the job was done? They are close to imperceptible and they aren’t dry yet!

If you are ready to do something about your settled and uneven concrete but are shocked at replacement cost, call 1-855-752-2522 we can help.

Settled concrete? We no lift, you no pay.

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

1-855-752-2522 does not charge for attempts.

If you are concerned about being charged a fee if we can’t raise your concrete don’t fear. We don’t charge unless we raise your settled concrete.

With experience comes the ability to better offer the types of warranties you expect. We know what to look out for when doing an estimate, as a result we rarely have a slab we can’t lift. Occasionally we come across a slab with a sub grade support structure that renders Slabjacking impossible. If this happens, no matter the time involved there is no charge.

Slabjack Geotechnical winter projects? Web & Warranty.

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

Though we stop raising  concrete for a couple months each winter due to snow and freezing weather we like to keep ourselves busy.

One of the primary things we do each winter is freshen up the web site. We generally have several new videos to edit or post to the site along with many before and after pictures.

This year we are excited to finally have drop down menus which makes navigating the site that much easier. Eventually we will have a huge library of jobs we have done which will enable a potential customer with a settled porch for instance to go to “videos, porches” and they can watch several porches being raised or go to the before and after pictures for a quick overview. In the “services” tab on the drop down menu are descriptions of each service we offer and a little bit of information about the service.

Another feature is categorizing all the blog posts we have done, by the end of 2015 we will have over one hundred twenty covering everything from how to repair cracks in concrete to DIY concrete leveling, we even pontificate on why government contracts cost so much.

Another important thing we do is develop procedures to better serve our customers. With that in mind we have done two things this winter, first we joined the BBB. We feel that we already abide by the principles of this fine organization and want our customers, past, present and future to know that we are committed to superior products, service and follow up. Second, we have strengthened our limited warranty from one year to two full years and now include the warranty with the estimate. We have also conspicuously posted our warranty on our web site along with an easy to fill out warranty request form.

We are a customer focused, family owned and operated company, our objective is to exceed your expectations. We are committed to superior service, if something didn’t turn out the way you feel it should we pledge to resolve the problem in a fair and reasonable way.

When it comes time to do something about your settled concrete give us a call, we can help.

2015 home show season is upon us

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

We love the home show season. Too cold to be out raising concrete but a great time to solidify plans for home improvement, including leveling your out of shape concrete and filling and repairing cracks.

Mostly we love to talk with folks about the advantages of geo-polymer Slabjacking and what we can do to help you enjoy your property even more. We can even give a rough estimate of how much it will cost to raise your concrete.

There is no pressure at our home show booth, if you are considering doing something about your settled concrete just fill out an estimate request form. In most cases without you even seeing us we will come out, take measurements and a picture or two and simply email the estimate to you. It’s that simple. If you decide you want the work done just reply to the email and we will get you on our schedule.

Look for our booth at this years home show in the following locations; Spokane, Yakima, Tri-Cities, Wenatchee and more. We serve Central and Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho so more shows may be added as they become available.

The home show season runs from mid February to mid April, see you there.

Slabjack Geotechnical Expands territory

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

1-855-752-2522 now serves the Eastern half of Washington and Northern Idaho. From the Canadian boarder to Oregon.

With the purchase of our second Slabjack rig, stationed in Spokane we are able to provide excellent service to an area that was previously difficult for us to serve. We look forward to living and working in this beautiful area of the Pacific Northwest.

As we expand to new territories our mission is always to be able to service the areas in which we serve better than the competition, here are some of the things we have invested in to enable that;

Call center – When you contact us through the 1-855-752-2522 number, the call is routed to our main office which takes the information and generates an online estimate request which is forwarded to the crew responsible for your area. This includes all the information needed to provide a detailed estimate either via e-mail of through the postal service. This allows our crews to be raising concrete, not doing paperwork.

Slabjack Appstimator- this computer program allows duplicatable estimates to be provided. When we arrive on site we take photographs, measurements including, length, width, amount of settling and how settled and note any other pertinent information, this information is entered into the program and it calculates the amount of material needed. Unlike some Slabjack companies we do not “pull numbers from the air” our estimates are based on the amount of material needed for that specific job. Because this is simply a mathematical formula, reasonably accurate estimates can be given over the phone if the client can provide the measurements.

Training- our crew leaders have lifted thousands of concrete slabs and structures. You can count on the fact that they have likely seen slabs just like yours and know how to successfully raise and level your concrete.

Equipment- we do not use the nearly century old process of Mudjacking, todays methods have many advantages including; much smaller holes, far fewer holes, less mess, faster process, material flows into voids and fissures consolidating loose soils better and solidifying organic mater.

Products – 1-855-752-2522 uses the finest polymers on the market. DOT approved, hydro insensitive, lightweight but extremely dense. Our crack repair products are second to none from Masterseal SL1 caulking (formerly Sonolastic) to Emecole and Roadware epoxy, polyurethane and polyurea crack repair products, you can count on top quality every time. These products are stocked on the truck when we come to your job site so we are able to complete the crack seal/repair the same day in most instances.

Electronic and mechanical metering- Allows surgical precision when leveling slabs and enables us to diagnose slab binding to greatly reduce the possibility of fracturing the slab. 1-855-752-2522 invests in the latest electronics and equipment in order to provide superior Slabjacking services to our clients, whether yours is a simple walk or a huge warehouse floor you can be confident when choosing 1-855-752-2522.

The art of concrete raising

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

Unlike simply pouring a concrete slab and pulling a two by four across it to make it level, raising one takes skill to bring it back to level.

While it is true some slabs are fairly simple to bring back into alignment most require a level of skill and experience in order to bring it back to level without severely damaging the slab.
