Oak Creek Mudjacking (Concrete Slab Lifting) Service
Another service they do is concrete slab lifting.
Some people call this technique mudjacking or slabjacking.
If you notice an area of your concrete courtyard, porch or sidewalk that has sunken down into the ground so it is no longer even, they can boost it back up again.

Why Do These Issues Happen?
Well, it’s just the science of our soil.
The ground beneath your house shifts and changes. It broadens and contracts depending on exposure to water and temperature. This expansion and contraction of the ground puts great stress on even a well-built house.
Although you can’t change the laws of science, or the weather conditions where you live, having your house located on a yard which has insufficient drainage or subpar grading, or your property doesn’t have functioning rain gutters could be sizable aspects in whether or not you get into a negative circumstance.
One of the leading causes which will impact the likelihood of this happening is something that the homeowner can’t influence.
It’s the absorbency of the soil and ground that the house is built on.
Soil which will take in and soak up a lot of water will expand more than soil that does not hold water well.
We are fairly lucky here in southeast Wisconsin, most of the soil under our properties is not very absorbent.
A different somewhat uncommon cause of property troubles is having a major tree that is too close to your house.
This tree can lead to issues as its roots push under the house and put stress on water lines and your concrete slab.
Environment and consistent forces may cause very small cracks in your home’s structure.
These small cracks allow in moisture and air, and several of these very small splits grow into big cracks, and a few of those big cracks come to be major problem splits.
Can I Do This Later?
If you or a friend has a sense that you might have an issue with your home, make an appointment to have it looked at.
Then you will understand whether or not your house has a problem and if it has to be addressed immediately or not.
The inspection is not something you should postpone.
You can’t simply ignore it and hope that it goes away. It won’t.
Foundation crack repair is a problem you should address sooner instead of later.
Your basement foundation literally supports your entire house.
The floors, walls, and roof depend on it. If you can’t take care of it you could end up in a difficult situation later.
If you are experiencing moisture in the basement when it rains a lot, maybe it won’t take a lot of effort to fix it.
Nobody wants mold down in the basement.
If you don’t fix it, it won’t get better as time passes either.
Thinking that you might try to list and sell your house rather than doing any of the repair work certainly isn’t the finest strategy either.
A small amount of house buyers have an interest in a property that has any telltale sign of water in the basement or visible structure problems.
Plus, house sellers must advise a serious home buyer about any substantial defect with their home before the sale is completed, so it’s easier to fix the issue first.
Look, homeowners often assume their problem is likely to be extremely difficult to remedy, but, in most cases, an experienced Wisconsin contractor can get the issue corrected.
Yes, the process could be pretty complicated, but the work can generally get finished.
