Whether you have a large driveway or the patio that is sinking or a smaller part of a path, our concrete lifting services can help level the slab and restore it to the proper location without the cost and hassle of tearing it out and replacing it. We use a process commonly referred to as mudjacking. This process features pumping a cement slurry that safely and evenly lifts the slab to it's original location.
