Raise-Rite Concrete Lifting has been raising concrete since 1974. Slabjacking, or, mudjacking, as it is commonly called, is a cost effective alternative to replacing sunken concrete. Mudjacking, or, slabjacking, is performed by drilling 1 5/8" holes through the top surface of a concrete slab, and pumping, under hydraulic pressure, flowable cement grout underneath the slab. As the mixture flows beneath the surface, voids and depressions are filled and the slab is raised to achieve the desired height. This method of raising concrete can be used to raise sidewalks, stoops, driveways, pool decks, garage floors, patios, factory floors, office floors, streets, and runways. Void filling can also be performed for stabilization and to fill holes caused by animals or soil erosion. Concrete raising is the alternative to costly replacement. Raise-Rite Concrete Lifting is committed to providing its services to all of its customers. We provide our services to homeowners, schools, churches, municipalities, property managers, and a broad commercial base. Our list of customers includes:

What is mudjacking? Mudjacking is a process used to raise concrete by drilling holes through the top surface of the concrete slab and pumping, under hydraulic pressure, a flowable cement grout underneath. What can be mudjacked? Basically any concrete flat work can be lifted. We raise sidewalks, stoops, driveways, pool decks, garage floors, patios, factory floors, office floors, streets and runways. What is void filling? Void filling is performed by filling, by use of a long nozzle, voids left under a slab by means of erosion, settlement, or, animals. How do I get an estimate? You can request an estimate by calling our office at 1-800-353-9090. Is there a charge for an estimate? No. We provide free estimates. Do I need to be home? It is only necessary to be present if the area in question is an interior, locked structure, or, locked yard. Is there a warranty? The warranty is printed on the back side of the estimating proposal. If the concrete slab(s) sink(s) more than 1/4" within one year of performing the work Raise-Rite will come out and rework the settled slabs. Please refer to your estimating proposal for complete warranty details. Do you accept credit cards? Yes! We accept cash, checks, Discover, Visa and Master Card. What are the terms of payment? Payment is expected within 10 days from the date of work/invoice. How do I accept a proposal? If you have reviewed your estimate and decide to have the work done, please sign the estimating proposal in the front left corner "Acceptance of Proposal." Then forward the signed copy to us via mail, or, fax us at 630/665-1794. How do I schedule my work? Once we receive your signed acceptance, we will contact you to schedule your work. Do I need to be present when the work is done? Generally not, as long as the work being done is outside. However, if work is being done on an interior, garage floor, or, in a locked yard, then an adult over the age of eighteen will be required to be present. PLEASE NOTE: In order to clean the surface when we are done we need access to an exterior water spigot. Do I need to send a deposit? No. Payment is not required until after the work is completed. However, payment is expected within our payment terms of ten (10) days. When can the mudjacking be done? Mudjacking is dependent on the weather. Therefore, in our climate, we generally work from Mid-March through Mid-December. How long does the work take to be done? That depends on the size of the job. However, most residential work can be completed on the day scheduled. Timing and finishing is always dependent upon the weather. How big are the holes? The holes that are drilled are approximately 15/8" in diameter (about the size of a golf ball). What do you do with the holes when you are done? The holes are patched with a concrete patch. 630-665-1345 · Fax: 630-665-1794 Will I notice the holes? The drill holes are noticeable because we are putting fresh concrete patch on aged concrete. In time, however, the holes will begin to blend with the existing concrete. What type of material is used? We use a sand/cement grout mixture comprised of Portland cement and baseball sand. Will this process work on my asphalt/blacktop driveway? NO! Asphalt is a bituminous product and will crack and crumble if we try to raise it. What will happen to the existing cracks in my slab(s)? Unfortunately, the cracks will still exist. In addition, Raise-Rite does not fill or patch concrete cracks. That is the owner's responsibility. Furthermore, because mudjacking can only lift by means of hydraulic pressure, it cannot move slabs horizontally to close gaps that may have resulted from ground slump, frost heave, and/or settlement. How long will the area that is raised be out of service? Most areas can be used right after we finish. However, driveway and garages must be unused for 48­72 hours.
