Curious about concrete leveling and void filling? When we come to your site we are bringing $100,000 worth of concrete leveling equipment, tools and material, along with the experience of our crew having raised thousands of settled concrete slabs.

As we arrive on the job site, the first thing we do is start the equipment and while the material warms, we determine the best location for the injection valves and drill 5/8″ holes at those locations. For very narrow slabs settled on their side, jacks may be used to position the slab prior to the lifting process.

To monitor the lift we use extremely sensitive gauges are used that measure 1000ths of an inch. This is important so we don’t over lift the slab. Those gauges are also critical when void filling where lift is not desired.

Once the lifting and/or void filling is complete the holes are patched with quick-setting mortar, tinted and colored, if necessary, to match your concrete and the job site is swept clean. When we leave, your are free to use your concrete. We use quick set mortar that is hard after about half an hour, but you will want to avoid direct water pressure for a day.

Should I wait until my concrete has settled all the way? A question we sometimes get. The answer is generally “no” because as slabs settle further, damage will often result. Cracking, pulling away from the building and/or draining water to the foundation.

While no one likes to spend money on concrete repair it’s important to realize it only gets worse from today. More expensive, less athletically pleasing and greater potential for cracks.

Let Slabjack Geotechnical provide a detailed proposal about what’s going on, how we are going to fix it and what it’s going to cost. We are professional, knowledgeable and fair. Call today,

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.

Sinking concrete? The options, the straight scoop. Slabjack Geotechnical

 

Sinking Concrete Replacement
Sinking Concrete Replacement

 

When you first notice your concrete settling it is a concern, when someone trips and falls it becomes a liability.

In addition to a potential lawsuit, settling concrete can create wet basements, foundation settlement and frozen puddles. Fixing theses issues starts to make financial sense when compared to lawsuits and structural problems down the road.

So, what are the options?

Do nothing – sometimes ignoring the problem is an acceptable solution. If the settlement is less than 1/2″ (1/4″ for businesses) it generally doesn’t require repair.

Replace it – you can expect to pay between $8-12 a square foot for standard broom finished concrete. This large range of price is due to several factors, both of the removal and the replacement. Was there rebar? How thick was the slab? Are there recycling facilities for the old slab? Is the new slab going to have structural reinforcement? How thick will the new slab be? How is the access to the site? And many more. Generally figure $10 for rip and replace and you won’t be far off. Of course replacement has a few drawbacks beside being the most costly option. You won’t be able to use your concrete for a week or two while the concrete is placed and then given ample time to cure. You can expect some landscape damage from the forms, concrete trucks and general worksite related issues and it can be a several day operation.

Mudjack it – A method going back to the 1930’s Mudjacking pumps a mud slurry through a hole drilled in your slab to hydraulically raise the concrete. This method is a perfectly acceptable method to raise settled concrete. The primary complaint about this method is the large holes needed, 1-2″ diameter and the large number of them since the material doesn’t flow very far from the pumping location. Price is typically half or less of replacement.

Slabjack it – With polyurethane injection. This is basically Mudjacking brought into the twenty first century. Better methods, better material, better end result. Material injected through a much smaller 5/8″ hole and far fewer of them leaves a much better appearance when completed. Material can be formulated for incredible lift for very heavy porches and structures or formulated for filling voids with little lift generated. The ability to have materials available for a wide range of uses is incredibly advantageous compared to Mudjacking. Cost is comparable to Mudjacking due to the efficiency of the method even though the material is more costly.

When should I replace and when to raise? As a general rule if your slabs are in good condition you should raise them. If your slabs have many cracks or if the top of the concrete is spalling replacement is probably your best option.

Here at Slabjack Geotechnical we have a motto- a job needs to meet three criteria, first it needs to be doable, second it needs to be profitable and third IT NEEDS TO BE IN THE CUSTOMERS BEST INTEREST. We will not do a job, no matter the profit to us, if it is not in our customers best interest to do so.

We are so confident in our service we offer a limited five year warranty.

What causes concrete settlement?

18557522522
1-855-752-2522

Sinking concrete, settling concrete and slumping concrete. All terms used to try and explain what is happening when concrete is settling in soil.

Because concrete is so heavy it is prone to settling if site preparation was ignored. What is quality site preparation?

Compaction, soil barrier, drainage.

Simply put when soil is not compacted adequately it will compact over time and with added moisture.  A failure to compact will always result in settling.

A soil barrier is generally compacted gravel. Some soil types, primarily clay, will expand and then contract as it up-takes and releases water, by using a 4 to 6 inch layer of compacted gravel between the soil and the slab expansion and contraction will not be as prevalent or do as much damage to the concrete. In addition if your area is prone to clay soils using a concrete sealer will greatly reduce the propensity for clay soil’s to expand and contract.

Drainage also plays a critical role in keeping your concrete slabs stable. When homes don’t have gutters or have miss placed downspouts that concentration of water along foundations can cause porches and walks to settle. A mis-placed downspout near a sidewalk will always result in a sidewalk settling so correcting these problems is a key to eliminating settling.

If you are dealing with settling concrete you likely have one or more of the above problems. Give the concrete raising and leveling professionals a call today and we will get you taken care of.

Spokane concrete lifting by Slabjack Geotechnical

Slabjack Geotechnical
Slabjack Geotechnical

In Spokane you have a couple different options to have your concrete raised, you can have your concrete mudjacked or you can have your concrete raised with polyurethane. What’s the difference?

Just like the name implies mudjacking uses soil mixed with water and often a little bit of Portland cement or fly ash. This mixture is pumped through a hose inserted into a fairly large hole drilled in your concrete and with  hydraulic pressure the slab is raised back into position.

Polyurethane slab jacking uses the chemical expansion of structural grade polyurethane foam to raise the slab rather than hydraulic pressure. There are several advantages to this process; first the hole that is drilled in your concrete is much much smaller, 5/8 inch versus up to 2 inches in diameter. Secondly the material, polyurethane, is very light weight when compared to a mud mixture. Thirdly polyurethane doesn’t shrink. Mud by its very nature must dry out and this drying out results in shrinkage which causes the concrete to settle necessitating repumps.  Finally polyurethane flows much better under the slab the result of this is that far fewer holes need to be drilled in the concrete.

Whether you live in Spokane, the Valley, Coeur ‘d Alene, Post Falls or any of the surrounding areas the premier Slabjack contractor in your area is Slabjack Geotechnical call today for a no-cost no pressure estimate to have your settled concrete raised.
