    Default Concrete Lifting/Mudjacking Company Recommendations?

    Anyone here have experience with Concrete Lifting/Mudjacking companies in Calgary? One end of my driveway is sagging quite a bit so looking to get a quote to fix it.

    TIA.

    I used a concrete lifting company to slightly lift some of my concrete but more so they could fill a massive void under my driveway (with expanding foam) as I had a village of voles under there that had set up shop.

    I used a place called Artisan Concrete. Owners name is Carlito and he was great to deal with. Actual cost came in very very close to the initial estimate. It's a bit of a crap shoot with the estimate and actual costs as you never know how much foam you will need.

    What was your final cost?

    We had our back patio mud jacked, it was done under warranty but the crew who did it said it would cost the builder around $2K. The cavity underneath was massive, 2-3 feet in some places, so I am not sure if that affected the cost. They used the type of "mud" that is kind of like grout, at least that's how they explained it to me. My neighbor had the exact same thing done (fill a huge cavity so he could put a hot tub down safely) but they used foam instead and it was much cheaper at $800.

    Do you remember which company? I was hoping mine won’t be $2k (I think I want mud vs foam) but I guess I’ll get quotes and see how it goes

    I'm sorry I don't know who did it, because it was a warranty job the builder took care of everything. Their truck was in the alley and they ran a hose through my garage to pump the 'mud' into holes they drilled in my patio slab. If you don't have a 2-3 foot deep cavity to fill I imagine it would be cheaper than mine, but that's just a guess.

    Foam seems to be at least half the price but I don't know enough about it regarding driveway use. It was good enough for my neighbor's hot tub to sit on top of though.

    Check out polyboss.ca I used to work for them. They do foam slab-jacking.

    The only issue I have seen with Driveway's is they can sometimes have massive voids that you don't see right away that can eat a lot of material.

    In regards to mudjacking VS foam. Mudjacking is going to leave a larger hole to be patched just due to the size required to pump the grout in. You are also adding a lot of weight with mudjacking so if the base is iffy(which if it has sunk is likely the case) you are adding more weight to it vs foam. However once you get over minimum charges for large voids mudjacking can be cheaper.
