Vistas and South Boise Mudjacking and Slab Lifting Services
Another service offered is concrete slab lifting. Some people call this process mudjacking or slab jacking.
If you’ve got a piece of your cement drive way, walkway or courtyard which has sunk down into the soil so it is no longer even, they can lift it back up to the correct height.

Slab lifting is the favorite option to correct your sloping patio or sidewalk.
How Do These Problems Happen?
Around and beneath your home, the ground shifts a small amount from time to time. Water, changes in temperature and other variables might cause the ground to shrink or increase.
These movements, even though they can be minor, can impact whatever lies on top of it, from a house to a patio or other solid object.
Even while you can’t command the weather here in Southwest Idaho, having your home located on a lot that has poor drainage or improper grading can be major factors in whether or not you see a bad situation at your residence.
Merely getting suitable rain gutters can really help keep excess rain water away from your house. It’s a quick repair that may have a big effect.
One of the leading issues which affect a home is the absorbency of the earth it sits on. Soil that can soak up and retain lots of moisture will tend to expand more than soil which doesn’t hold moisture well. You are lucky around here in Ada County, most of the ground under our homes is not highly absorbent.
One fairly uncommon source of property problems occurs when you have a really huge tree too close to the house. This tree may cause a dilemma if it’s roots stretch under the house and interfere with your slab or water and sewer lines.
The long roots from a major tree too near your home may also draw out all the moisture out from the soil under your home. Obviously, this would only happen during a hot and dry Summer.
Each of these types of natural strain may result in the growth of small-scale cracking in the foundation of your property. Little cracking can allow in humidity and have a way of progressing into bigger cracks over time.
Can I Wait On This?
If you feel you may have a problem, you really should have it checked out. You may learn that what you’re worried about is not anything significant. But if you get it examined, at least you will know for certain.
You shouldn’t simply dismiss it and then just hope that it slowly goes away. Because it will not just go away.
