Mudjacking is a process of forcefully pushing a thick substance beneath a sunken cement slab which, when it has filled up all the spaces beneath the concrete, causes the slab to rise up.

The crucial element to keeping a house structure solid is to keep extra rain water away from around and beneath the house.

First, a house which is built on a properly graded yard will experience rainwater move away from a building and not towards it.

Of course, this could only come up in the middle of a hot Summer.

These kinds of stress can bring about the creation of small cracks in your house’s foundation.

These minor cracks will allow in moisture, air and even little insects, and those small cracks will just get larger as years go by.
