House Leveling San Antonio

House leveling is the process of lifting a home as close to its original state as possible Leveling a home is one of the various forms of foundation repair in San Antonio
A home that is sinking at one place or multitude of spots more than likely has structural problemsHouse leveling will undoubted fix the foundation problems, however, the source of the problem must also be addressed in ordered to prevent the damage from reoccurring in the future.
Foundation erosion, structural damage, volatile soil condition problems, under-slab plumbing leaks, poor exterior drainage and intrusive tree roots all can contribute to a sinking home or sagging, uneven floors. It’s important to also correct these issues before house leveling is performed to ensure a more permanent solution.

what is mudjacking

Mud jacking, is also called slab jacking, concrete lifting, and slab leveling, is a repair process that is one of the best ways of repairing a number of settlement issues with the concrete at your home or business. It's the process of lifting concrete slabs that have settled and is sinking, buckling or has some form of damaged. In order to repair that damage mudjacking is preformed by drilling holes through the concrete. Then a mixture of water, soil, sand, and cement called mud or slurry is pumped beneath the settling slab to lift it. The mixture cures to create a solid, stable fill that stabilizes the slab back to its original height.
When used to repair a settling home foundation, mud jacking is a professional job that requires using special equipment. All work should be done by a trained contractor, who has expert knowledge of local soil conditions and what it takes to repair the soil or lift it to its correct state.

Reasons Why People Choose Mudjacking
Mud jacking work can be all year around and in any weather conditions
Mud jacking is a fast process especially compared the rip-and-replace approach where the contractor breaks up the concrete.
Mud jacking is also easier on the environment since there is no cement to dispose of.,most the time the work is finished in one day.
Mudjacking allows you to use it nearly ASAP. For example,mud jacking can be completed in as little as a 3 hours.
Using the mud jacking process protects your home’s curb appeal because its installation usually causes no damage to the lawn.
The slurry on average takes between 24-48 hours to cure and fully setup before bearing weight or any heavy weight loads.
By contrast, It takes new or replacement concrete at the very least 28 days to set and be available for use.
While every situation is different
Mudjacking is more cost effective than ripping out the concrete and replacing it. Because less work needs to be done for mudjack the cost is much cheaper and more budget-friendly.

Mud jacking can be done using two different methods:
  1. Raising Interior Floors: Often the interior of slab foundation sinks or settles. Mud jacking is one repair processes used to lift the interior floors to their original starting position. Mud jacking to lift the interior floors is preforming by  drilling 2″ holes through the slab in the areas that have settled and pumping a mixture of slurry underneath the concrete, lifting the slab back to position.
  2. Fill Voids: House sinking problems are usually caused by the outer perimeter of the foundation settling. A contractor will level settled sections with push piers. When the piers are installed under the perimeter grade beam and the foundation is raised, it creates a void under the slab. Mud jacking fills the empty space beneath the footing created by this lifting. The foundation contractor uses mud jacking to fill this void by drilling 2″ holes through the perimeter grade beam and pumping a mixture of soil/cement mud into the void.
Mud jacking is used for rising or leveling most of the concrete at your home such as decks, patios, porches,  basement, walkways, garage floors,  driveways and car ports.

A solid foundation is the key to having a structurally sound house or commercial property. While cosmetic cracks can occur anywhere, you must get these inspected to ensure they are simply cosmetic -- and if they aren't, you must get the cause of the cracks fixed immediately. If you wait, the damage could become bad enough that repairs are no longer an option. The foundation repair experts at our San Antonio location will evaluate the problem thoroughly, give you the details about what is happening and why, and give you an estimate in writing.
The good news is that most foundation issues turn out to be relatively minor. If the cracks indicate more than just cosmetic damage -- which we can fix, too -- the issues are usually along the lines of improving a drainage system or removing a tree with roots that are starting to affect the foundation.
