A sunken driveway or a sunken panel on your front sidewalk is a major pain in the butt to homeowners. Unfortunately, many sunken panels sit in their sad, sunken state for months, and even years, it is too dang expensive to replace concrete. Fortunately, there is a solution for sunken concrete other than just replacement, and in most cases is a much better solution than replacing an entire panel, this is known as mudjacking. Let’s look at some of the reasons why mudjacking is a better option than concrete replacement thanks to AAA Concrete Raising.
Why Mudjacking is Better Than Concrete Replacement
Mudjacking is Much Quicker Than Replacement
Having your driveway or front sidewalk replaced can be a long ordeal. The old concrete must be tediously ripped up and removed, the area must be properly prepped and leveled for new concrete, the concrete must be poured, and the concrete needs time to set. This whole process can take days! Mudjacking typically only takes a half day to a full day to complete, and the results are instantly there.
Mudjacking is Less Involved Than Replacement
You want to be able to use the area around your driveway or the driveway itself for several days when you get it replaced. Concrete replacement also produces plenty of dirt, dust, and debris in your yard that is no fun to a homeowner. Mudjacking only takes place under your concrete, so there is hardly any mess involved for the homeowner to suffer through.
Mudjacking is Much Less Expensive Than Replacement
The number one reason that mudjacking is better than concrete replacement is costly. Mudjacking is much less labor intensive than concrete replacement in terms of both material cost, and labor. If you want to get a sunken area of concrete fixed but not break the bank, mudjacking is a fantastic option.
So if you have sunken concrete areas that have been bothering you and tripping up your guests, it’s time to consider mudjacking. The low cost, short turnaround, and minimum mess make for a much easier overall process with the homeowner and their home.
