Slab Jacking Process in Newcastle
Benefits of Slab Jacking in Newcastle
Slab Jacking Overview
Do you have concrete that has sunken? Over time concrete that was poured over poorly compacted soil will tend to sink as the ground beneath it settles or erodes. In some cases we have seen concrete in Newcastle that will also crack if the ground below it has settled unevenly. Slab jacking is the practice of repairing the sunken concrete by floating it back up to its original position.
Slab jacking can be used to correct the majority of sunken concrete situations – even very large concrete slabs such as foundations, patios, etc. The process is relatively simple, but it does require professional equipment and expertise to implement correctly.
Level Up Foundation Repair will repair your sunken concrete by injecting a mixture of sand, cement and other additives through small holes in the surface of the concrete. This mixture fills in the space below the concrete slab, raising it up to its original height. In most cases, a slab jacking job can be completed in just a few hours. Compared to pouring a new slab of concrete, slab jacking saves you both time and money.
Slab Jacking Process
- We first drill small holes through the surface of the slabs to be leveled.
- Next we hydraulically inject grout through these holes, filling any voids that are present below the slabs.
- We continue to pump in areas that have settled. This raises the slabs back to the proper position to match the adjacent slabs. The grout will flow below the slab filling voids during the leveling process. We focus on completely filling the void for a lasting repair.
- After leveling has been completed, a durable cement called non-shrink grout is used to patch each drill hole so they are flush with the surrounding surface/ Patches will vary in color from the existing concrete, this color disparity will diminish over time.
- The final step involves rinsing the slab and cleaning up the surrounding area.
Benefits of Slab Jacking

- This process be implemented with no disruption to surrounding structures and very little (if any) disruption to landscape.
- No need to remove heavy (or permanently installed) fixtures/structures/furniture on the concrete slab. The slab jacking process can lift the slab and the items on the slab.
- Perhaps best of all, there is no wait time to begin using your newly restored concrete surface!
