IMG_9355.PNG IMG_9356.PNG Hey guys. Seeking some knowledge from experienced concrete lifters out here. I have 3 sections of concrete that need mud jacking.
1) Last slab of driveway where it meets garage slab. Slab is two car driveway width and about 6ft across from garage slab to the crack, needs raised about 1.25"
2) Second is the front porch slab that has the step, whole thing needs to be releveled because the step end of slab sunk about 3".
3) Third piece is the slab right in front of the previous one I just mentioned, it needs to be raised about 1" to follow inline with everything after the step slab is corrected.
I was given a quote by a concrete contractor for 975.00 I don't think that's too bad or is that crazy? He also said they don't use the foam stuff to lift they use a limestone mixture because water can get trapped between the foam and concrete causing the slab to crack. Any thoughts on this? Thx

His story about foam is lame at best, the price does not sound bad but I would also talk to the foam people. There are videos that compare the two. I think foam wins.
