The process of commercial mudjacking to repair loose or sunken-in concrete slabs is typically performed by specialized concrete technicians. From commercial mudjacking, to repair, to commercial shotblasting in Edmonton, the proper equipment is required to do these and other commercial services. Because the concrete slabs have sunken into the ground, aren’t level with the rest of the ground, and require an extreme amount of pressure to be leveled, contractors must have appropriate equipment to do this type of service.
The process –
The process of commercial shotblasting in Edmonton and mudjacking requires contractors to pump grout through the concrete slabs, in an attempt to rebalance and resurface sunken pieces of concrete. By pumping the grout through the concrete, it allows contractors to render professional repair, in a manner which would otherwise require far more effort in the past. The powerful blasting equipment basically forces the sunken pieces of concrete to lift, allowing contractors to, in turn, perform repairs, level the surface, and provide an even, balanced area, where concrete had otherwise been damaged or moved.
Can any contractor do this work? –
No. It is a service which requires an extreme level of precision, power, and requires the proper equipment to blast heavy pieces of concrete from the ground. In choosing a service technician or company, customers must look for:
1. Companies that own and use professional, commercial-grade blasting equipment.
2. Contractors who have experience in working with delicate areas, or minimal damage, to avoid further cracking, damage, or problems (sinking, rather than lifting the concrete).
3. Contractors who have years of experience with this and other specialized concrete repair services.
The more experience a company possesses in this type of work, the easier it is going to be for them to level the area and to render all of the repair work they must do on site.
The additional service offerings –
Upon lifting the concrete with power blasting and lifting equipment, what’s next? In some cases, contractors must remove the slabs in order to render repair work. In other cases, they can simply level the concrete slab, apply additional concrete and sealing around the surface, and reapply the slab where it was lifted, in order to create a smooth, even surface. Whether it is a parking lot, commercial business, or other commercial space where several people pass by daily, immediate repair has to be done on sites where concrete has sunken. Not only to avoid potential damage to surrounding surfaces, but also to avoid the possibility of injuries in the area, as well.
When choosing a contractor, look for those who offer a wide range of services. In addition to the blasting, do they also perform repair, sealing, or waterproofing? Do they perform additional installation or mixing if new concrete slabs have to be placed? Do they have equipment to perform repairs and do new installation, if required?
When it comes to commercial services, the best technicians have to be chosen. These are a few ways to narrow down the options and hire the most renowned companies for these specialized service needs.
