CONCRETE SLAB RAISING & MUDJACKING
WHY DOES CONCRETE MOVE?

Mudjacking and Polyjacking. Osco is the ONLY company to offer both systems and as such, we can recommend the best solution for your particular situation.
“Mudjacking” uses a cement-based grout (mud). This process begins by drilling a small, 1.5” diameter hole through the slab. A nozzle and hose that is attached to a pump is inserted into the hole in order to pump the grout mixture under the slab to fill voids and then gently lift the slab.
Both methods are designed to accomplish the same results: provide a safe, even concrete surface that looks good and functions as it should.
