Record Year Raising Concrete.

We want to thank our customers, suppliers and employees for supporting us in our sixth year of continuous growth. 2016 was a huge success. Over the past six years we have gone from serving a small community to becoming a regional powerhouse in the industry with three locations in Central and Eastern Washington serving those areas and north Idaho.

But we’re not satisfied. This off season our entire staff has attended further training and we have enhanced our website with many more videos, pictures and educational blogs.

We have instituted policies and procedures with the intent to redefine our industry.

We have hired additional staff to more proactively handle customer requests as well as reach out to potential customers in the commercial and municipal arenas.

We have added another rig to our fleet to better serve our large service area. And we have been testing materials to find the absolute best products to raise and support your settled concrete.

You can be sure of one thing with 1-855-752-2522; we will not be outworked. We are driven to be the best Slabjack contractor in the markets we serve. Our tag line speaks truth.

One of the biggest complaints we have dealing with contractors is the huge reliance most of them have on answering services or voicemails. Last year we made the commitment to have a full time office staff to take calls and schedule estimates and jobs. It was a huge improvement. This year we hired a second “appointment center” staff member to help further our commitment to redefining our industry. It has already improved our responsiveness to our customers requests.

Our hours are 8am to 5pm Monday through Friday. We are closed weekends and we close for outdoor work in the winter though we still do interior work as needed.

Another of our off season improvements is the addition of a third rig, this one exclusively for the Tri-Cities market. In the past when it got especially busy we had to pull a rig from their assigned territory to help in Tri-Cities. Having a dedicated rig stationed there will make us that much more responsive to each location.

Our biggest improvement is in the estimating side of the operation. Production will now estimate all jobs. As a result for the vast majority of jobs we will provide proposals not estimates. In other words our customers will not have to worry about any overage charges. The single biggest complaint was over surcharges. With the changes we have made won’t even be a possibility for 90%+ of our estimates.

More responsive, less “guesstimating” that is redefining our industry.

Pole buildings present some unique challenges because they are not built on a traditional foundation as most structures are in freeze/thaw climates. In addition it is uncommon for builders to specify reinforcement such as rebar or welded wire mesh. As a result cracking and settling are common.

There are many things that should be taken into consideration PRIOR to building a pole building that will greatly minimize problems with the concrete portion of the structure, but that’s for another post. For now let’s consider what to do when things start to go wrong.

1) It won’t ever be less costly to fix the problem, so if you can….fix it now before greater problems rear their ugly heads.

2) There are several options for slabs going bad; replacement, raising and top coating. Let’s discuss these three.

Replacement – best option if the settling is severe, the slab has several fractures or if there are serious underlying issues with the base soil. Advantages; new appearance, can re compact the base, can add rebar and/or wire mesh. Disadvantages; have to empty out building, disruptive, takes time to tear out old slab, frame and pour then cure time up to four weeks, most costly by far.

Raising – methods include Mudjacking, polymer injection and pressure grouting. Each method has advantages and disadvantages however having used the first two methods and seen the aftermath of the third we have focused our contracting business on polymer injection exclusively since 2011. Advantages; less costly, less invasive, ready for immediate use, depending on the extent we can even underseal and insulate your floor! In addition slab raising is a proven method which has been in existence since the 1930’s if the underlying soil is stable the repair should be permanent.

Top coating – pouring additional concrete over the slab to “fill in” lower/settled sections. Advantages; new appearance. Disadvantages; additional weight will exacerbate settling problems, cracks right where under slab has cracked, can be costly, temporary fix.

If you find yourself dealing with the pole building going bad give the concrete raising and leveling professionals call today.

How much does it cost to raise settled concrete?

How much does it cost to raise settled concrete?

One of the most common questions that is asked about raising concrete is how much will it cost?

Unlike concrete replacement where a square foot calculation is typically used, concrete raising has other concerns. Issues such as; are there voids under the slab and if so how extensive? How thick is the slab? How far has it settled? What is the desired outcome?

Once we have a handle on exactly what is going on we can provide an accurate estimate. One of the most frustrating things for customers is dealing with “estimates” verses “proposals” we have taken that frustration off the table for the vast majority of our clients by doing away with overage charges on all but step up slabs and void filling.

What this means to our customers is that when we give you an estimate to raise your driveway for your patio or your sidewalk for your pool deck your estimate is a proposal and will not incur a surcharge for additional material.

You can count on Slabjack Geotechnical. We are the premiere Slabjack contractor in Washington and northern Idaho, doing more jobs in a month than Some of our competitors do in a year. Our estimators are thoroughly familiar with this process and have themselves worked in production for a minimum of one year so you are not going to have a novice looking at your project.

Give us a call today and let the concrete raising and leveling professionals get you taken care of.

If you are dealing with settled concrete rest easy we have you covered better than ever in Spokane, Tri-Cities, Wenatchee, Yakima and now Puget Sound.

Last year we added a full time rig in the Spokane/Coeur d’alene market and for 2017 we are announcing that Tri-Cities WA. will now have a full time rig too.

In addition to the additional rig we have added additional support personnel. One of the biggest  complaints most people have with contractors is you can never get ahold of them, it drives me nuts! it’s as if they are afraid of success.

Slabjack Geotechnical is a different kind of company. We are redefining what hiring a contractor should feel like.

From the initial contact, to the estimate to the completion of the job and warranty follow up a year later. Our aim is to impress upon you the customer your pre-eminent position in our company. Our goal is total customer satisfaction.

So what is different about dealing with Slabjack Geotechnical?

-When you call you will speak to a real person, not an answering service or a machine, we staff our appointment center Monday through Friday 8:00 to 5:00.

-We schedule in person proposals, not “estimates” (in most causes) so you don’t have to worry about overage charges or “what if’s” Other companies make you pay for their mis-calculations, not us.

-Our production leaders have literally raised thousands of concrete slabs from settled driveways, to sunken patios, porches and pool decks to sidewalks, shops and stoops. Nobody comes close to our experience when it comes to Geo-polymer Slabjacking, nobody!

-Our estimators are also experienced at raising slabs so they know what can be done, how it should be done and what to be concerned about. This additional experience is invaluable for accurately estimating your job and why in the vast majority of cases we present proposals not estimates so you know exactly what’s going on with your slab, exactly how we are going to fit it, and exactly how much it’s going to cost.

-Our company proactively reaches out to insure our clients are satisfied a full year after doing their job via-Email and if any settling has taken place an appointment is set to correct the issue. When was the last time a contractor did that for you?

If you just don’t want to deal with another contractor who doesn’t return calls, call a professional, Slabjack Geotechnical, we are redefining our industry.

Concrete control joint spacing – Slabjack Geotechnical

Concrete Control Joint Spacing
Concrete Control Joint Spacing

We don’t pour new, we raise your settled and sunken concrete but…..

We often see broken concrete and the topic of control joints comes up. For new concrete we recommend joint spacing no greater than 10 feet. A general guideline is that the joint spacing in feet should be twice the slab thickness in inches. With most of today’s residential slabs being only 3 1/2″ this means a control joint every 7′

Joint depth is another issue. In order for a control joint to work properly it needs to be at least 1/4 the depth of concrete slab, so for most residential slabs a joint depth of 1″ is sufficient.

Sadly you can’t rely on many concrete contractors, it takes time to do it right. That’s why most concrete is just poured on Mother Earth with no compacted gravel, no rebar and poor joint spacing and depth. You have to specify what you want or you may not get it, so ask….in writing.

If you have settled concrete, call today.
