Utah's Oldest and Most Experienced

We are currently redoing our site to a SmarterApp...
We've Been around since 2002!
We have Done MORE PROJECTS than ALL Our Competitors COMBINED!

UTAH's LEADER

Nobody in this industry has done more successful projects in Utah than ConcreteJacking.
In our 15 Years we've seen 28 competitors come and go, and it's always the same.
The new guys come in, do a summer's worth of work, and when the problems occur they are gone.  If any one of them would stay around for even three years they would figure it out but so far, none have.

IMPRESSIVE LIST

Over the past four years we've done Major Projects at USU, UofU and WeberState, including regular work for 5 School Districts, the LDS Church (Major Client), 11 major builders to include Kier, BigD and Layton Construction, 7 cities and dozens of HOA's.
Our major clients have us come back year after year for Two Reasons, they know we will do it Right, And if anything happens, we will Stand Behind our work.

ELIMINATING THE DANGER

One area where we help folks in all sectors of the market is in eliminating Trip Hazards.
Over the years we have established such a reputation of success that many of our major clients merely give us addresses without asking for bids because they know we do it right.

No matter what you call it, we have done more in Utah than ANYONE.

Spalling, a Common Utah Issue

When your concrete is badly Spalled, why replace it when it can be repaired for less than 1/2 the cost, complte with a Warranty?
Ask your replacement guy how long he will warranty the work.

Concrete Raising 
FOR

There is a LOT in this Smarter App including Before and After information.
We usually need to monitor the competition as they don't have many pictures
and we need to police them demanding they take our pictures down.

Bet you've never seen ConcreteJacking like this...
This is a shot from one of our many projects at USU. Kind of Fun.

Invented in 1933

Early Days

In 1933, J.W. Poulter was the first to pump mud under concrete slabs to fill in voids under the slab in Chicago.
In 1942, U.S. Navy Seabees pumped grout under concrete runways to raise them during World War II.

Void Filling

In the early days it was All Hand Labor.

First "Mud-Pump" 1934

This had a little more power and the first actual "Raising" took place.
The machines the Seabees used were large, bulky machines that were not suitable for residential jobs. 

1959 Chicago

The residential market began to take off because it became cost effective to Raise rather than Replace.

Modern Hand Pump

We still use the Hand Pump on special jobs where Gasoline Engines cannot be used, i.e. inside food production warehouses like Kellogs or Smiths Foods.

Save it,
Don't
Replace it.

Replace?

We first always see if it can be Raised.
After all, why wouldn't you, it's about 1/4 the cost to Raise vs. Replace.
In addition, there are cases where the pad is simply too broken up to warrant raising.
In those cases, we let you know.

Our Beginnings

When we first started the company in 2002 the Replacement guys really bad-mouthed us.
"It won't work", many of them said.
Now, most of them use us when one of their jobs goes bad.

Two Years

We cover our work for Two years.
See the Warranty section...
I was once told by an old boy who had done concrete for years:
"The thing about new concrete, I'll guarantee it will Crack, Nobody will Steal it and it Won't Burn."  

Considering Replacement?
If you are thinking about tearing out and replacing, have you checked the price of concrete lately? Disposal has also skyrocketed because of environmental concerns.
Save all the mess, expense, noise, the 30 day down-time and hassle of tearing out and replacing sunken concrete and use the firm that has been doing it longer and better than anyone, ConcreteJacking.

The Process

Drill

We drill a series of strategically placed 1 1/2" holes.

Hydraulic Lift

We inject our Slurry under pressure to Hydralically Raise the Pad.
This can go up to 650 psi.

Patch

Patch and Blend in with Concrete.
Our patches blend better than Any Competitors...Period.

Numerous Applications

Redidential - Commercial - Municipal
We've Done it ALL.

Under I-15

Basecrete

A proprietary mixture of sand and gravel (A Special Road Base used by UDOT) mixed into a slurry. Nearly All of our competitors  use sand (two use straight mud) without any aggregate. We've never used mud and stopped using sand 12 years ago because in our freeze-thaw climate using aggregate is critical.  Quite frankly, if Sand or Mud worked UDOT would be using it under freeways because it's a LOT less expensive than roadbase. There's a reason they don't. Ask any reputable concrete contractor why they don't just level out the dirt and pour the concrete directly over the dirt or sand? Why do they bring in roadbase with aggregate and compact first? 

Some competitors claim to use concrete when in reality they use approximately 12 parts sand to 1 part Portland Cement and call that mixture concrete. If you want a chuckle, go to a cement batch plant and ask the operator to mix you some of this "concrete."

Most competitors use just enough material to raise the slab. They make the material as thick of a consistency as their pump will handle so it will raise the pad quickly using less material. This saves them time and material but creates a small "cone" or "ant hill" effect under the slab around each hole with adjacent areas hollow. Not only will this cause breakage down the road but the pad virtually Always goes back down because no mater what you inject, if you don't have 100 Void fill with a material that will not compress and WILL go back down, usually after the first winter or two.
A couple of our competitors use jacks to raise the concrete. Small holes are drilled in the slab so anchor bolts can be attached to a jack. They jack up the pad and then inject enough material to hold it. No compaction, no void fill and a lot of breakage. Quite frankly, you could do this yourself, you don't need to hire somebody to raise it with an outside force.

Frequently Asked Questions

I've actually been asked this one. Ever wondered why they can get right out and you have to wait a little for us? They don't have a lot of work, and quite frankly, there is a reason for that. My daddy always said if you want construction done right go to a busy man. Folks, there is a reason we are busier than any other contractor in the entire state.

Our process is specifically designed for this business with a $14,000 single purpose construction machine capable of pumping grout, aggregate and 5/8 minus Concrete. It's the aggregate that insures the material stays in place. Our competitors know this but have not invested in the machine capable of pumping aggregate. They prefer to use Sand or Mud because it's much cheaper.
We even have competitors with a home-made machines that don't produce the pressure required to raise the slab, hence no compaction. They drill small holes and attach an anchoring mechanism to raise the pad with an outside force, usually a hydraulic jack. This causes the pressure to be concentrated in one small area making this system prone to cracking the concrete. And since there is very little pressure involved in the injection of the material the bulk of the void is not filled and proper compaction does not occur. If you could see under the slab you would see little mounds like ant hills or traffic cones of material where they do some injecting, making the surface very prone to cracking and settling. (See Competitors)
Another new competitor has a very impressive large truck. They advertise "sand and concrete." In reality it's 12 parts sand and 1 part grout like Portland cement or fly ash to grease up the sand so it can be pumped. (See Basecrete above.)
The concrete claim is interesting as their machine uses augers and no auger can move aggregate, it jams the system.

We began operations in 2002 and are the oldest and most experienced Concrete Raising company in Utah, Idaho and Wyoming.
Other companies claim to have been in business for years but in reality they were in other businesses. One SLC firm claimed 12 years experience when in fact they started up in 2010. They merely bought the name of the former oldest company in Utah when Don, the owner of that company and the man who trained me, retired. (And guess what, they are no longer around...)
Every year we have a new competitor. One from Layton lasted just a year, one from Richmond didn't last a year, one from Bountiful lasted just a year and one from N. Salt Lake didn't last a year. 
This year we have two more new ones, one that advertises "since 2004" on their advertising. We caution you, they may have been in a business since 2004 but it wasn't this business. prove it to yourself, ask them for references from 2004.

• Major Construction companies like Big-D - Layton Construction - Kier Corporation & Kier Property
• R. Ray Ward Construction (Prime Contractor for the LDS Church) and Castle Creek Homes.
• The LDS Church, Facilities Maintenance Groups from Salt Lake City to Idaho.
Utah State University (Major projects each of the past Four Years.)
• UofU - Bridgerland Applied Technology Center - Weber State - State of Utah
• 16 Cities - Three Counties - 5 School Districts - 14 Major Home Builders - 100's of Home Owners since 2002
• Industrial clients to include Smiths Foods - Kellogs - Pictsweet - Peterson Inc. - Presto - RR Donnaly - RC Willey - and several others

We won't insult your intelligence with this one. When you see a coupon for a concrete raising discount, you need to consider 20% off of WHAT? Every job is different so saying you get a discount from an unknown price is nothing more than a bait and switch tactic to get you to call.  Think about two things
First, What if I said I'd give you a 50% discount, heck a 75% discount? I haven't given you a price yet so what do you think I will do? I'll merely do what they do, add it on and then show you a discount to give you a warm and fuzzy feeling.
Next, e
ven in a bad Real Estate market, do you EVER see a 20% off coupon sent in the mail or in an advertisement on a home? You may see "price reduced" but NEVER a 20% off coupon "if you mention this ad."
Companies who use those 20% off coupons are assuming you are ignorant. We don't and we don't play those games.

Beware of HYPE on this one. We have a Salt Lake City based competitor claiming to use a new and improved "moisture resistant" grout. They claim to have a machine with the most pressure so you get the best raising of the concrete. 
In actuality they use a "MudJacking" pump that is designed to pump mud or grout, Not aggregate. Their mixture is nothing more than Sand with a little Portland Cement as mentioned earlier. 
We stopped using the mud mixture 12 years ago because early on we discovered the aggregate is needed to hold the material in place, as it is needed in Road Construction.
We have one competitor where a commissioned salesman says, "We use 6 bag concrete!" Sounds impressive doesn't it? Here are the facts. They use a version of the sand/portland cement mix cited earlier, NOT concrete. Making the 6 bag concrete statement is nothing more than a marketing ploy and unfortunately it works on a lot of customers.
Something else to consider. Salt Lake County has many times more people than Davis and Weber counties combined. Ever thought about the fact that these SLC based companies have time to come all the way to Box Elder county when we are too busy to go into cities like Salt Lake City, West Valley City and Draper?
When when it comes to Concrete we used to use it years ago but stopped for two important reasons.
First, many times we need our material to flow through a small space over a set distance. Concrete has a certain "slump" and the only way to get it to travel further horizontally is to water it down, and when you do that it's no longer concrete.
Second, concrete adds weight and combined with the fact that it will not flow, it attaches to the bottom of the pad in an "ant hill" or "cone" effect and can actually pull the pad down. 

Why not Polyurethant Foam?

The Beginnings

Every year we get some local contractors sold on the Polyurethane Foam. "Oh, it's the Latest thing." They go to The World of Concrete show in Las Vegas and come back with the Equipment and marketing material they purchased.
They have lots of marketing material to "sell" folks on the concept.

New and Better???

Is it really "The Newest Thing?" Polyurethane Foam has been around since the beginning of World War II and only in the last few years have marketing companied tried to adapt it to the concrete industry because it has been used in the insulation industry. They are making a lot of claims so you need to get the facts.

Smaller Hole

One of the points they continually make is "The holes we drill are much smaller." 
That's like saying after you use a different color of paint on a touch-up of your kitchen drawers, "Oh, it looks close, it's only a small touch-up."
Wouldn't you use the same color of paint?
Isn't the issue how it looks not how big?

Think About it

There is a place for the Foam and it's NOT in Concrete Raising. It's been used for years in insulation and void fill but there are serious  issues in Raising. Think about it.
You are going to try and raise concrete that will wiegh from 5,000 to 35,000 lbs. with foam that I can rip apart and even crush in my hand.
I can show you 5 failures just from 2016.

The Claims

Their marketing makes a lot of claims.
"The Foam will not deteriorate." False. Water, UV Rays even Air will cause deterioration.
"You get 100% compaction." False. The product has millions of microscopic air holes. How else could I hold it in my hand and crush it?
"It's totally Safe." Flase. By law, they need to supply an MDSD Sheet and guess what's listed? Poly Diisocyanate. Do your research.

Not for Raising

If you are convinced you need the Polyurethane Foam because you have bought into the marketing claims, we CAN do it but there are some issues.
First, we need to raise our price considerably.
It's shipped in from out of State so the shipping and handling is added.
Second, we cannot warranty the job.
We can't warranty becasue we Know it's not a matter of IF but WHEN it will fail.
