Our Mud Jacking
Step 1: Drilling
Scritchlow Concrete Lifting and Slab Jacking drill 1-5/8" holes in strategic locations on each piece of concrete to be lifted. The locations, spacing and quantity are all determined based on your individual site conditions. This custom approach ensures accurate and controlled lifts that result in a more accurate finished product.
Step 2: Lifting
Scritchlow Concrete Lifting and Slab Jacking use specialized pumping equipment that enables us to control both the speed of the lift, as well as the pressure involved. This ability enables us to have extremely accurate control of each piece of concrete, providing a finished product you can be proud of.
Step 3: Patching
Scritchlow Concrete Lifting and Slab Jacking use a special reinforced poly mortar to patch our holes. This special blend is actually water resistant, ensuring the hole plugs do not "pop" in our winter climate.
At Scritchlow Concrete Lifting and Slab Jacking, we custom mix our "mud." It's a revolutionary mix we are very proud of, and it's why we can offer a 2 year warranty for mud jacking. While our mud is a trade secret, we can tell you it has no dirt or clay in it. A lot of our competitors' mud is made of either plain old dirt or clay mixed with sand. Their mix will move, shift, and can settle. Think about it this way ... if your settled concrete is sitting on dirt or clay, why would you just add more dirt and clay and think it would fix your issue? The answer is it won't. Our mud jacking mix Is one of the only concrete lifting systems in the entire industry that comes with a full 2 year, transferrable warranty. It's completely natural and is 100% recyclable. Poly lifting is great as the holes are smaller, but it's hazardous waste.
It's such an important decision we dedicated an entire page to this comparison. MUD JACKING VS POLY LIFTING. You don't need to take our word for it. The American Pressure Grouting & Mudjacking Association has a great side by side comparison of Mud Jacking to Poly Jacking, too.
Dare to compare as most other warranties have tons of exclusions that can void the warranty. Being a member of the Bloomington community, we don’t play games and stand behind our products 100%! It's why we put the Scritchlow name on it.
