Residential & Commercial Concrete Lifting Services – 780.218.7511

Slab Jacking Camrose

Virtually all types of concrete walkways and driveways will sink and/or crack over time. The result of this aging process is uneven concrete surfaces causing tripping hazards, poor curb appeal and water damage (due to concrete slabs shifting and directing water towards the building's foundation/basement). The outcome of Building Owners not taking corrective actions to maintain their walkways and driveways include:

  • Increased liability due to “known” tripping hazards left uncorrected
  • Ill-timed financial expenditures due to water damage
  • Reduced property values

Concrete Lifting (also known as mudjacking) is an eco-friendly & economical alternative to replacing deteriorating walkways and driveways.
Merit’s services include:

  • Leveling of uneven concrete sidewalks, patios, driveways and garage pads
  • Filling of voids under concrete surfaces

Merit Concrete, Resetting the Grade in Concrete Lifting Services!


Typically three operators are required on the job site to run the process. The senior operator directs the onsite work and controls the lifting process.

Step 1

Before the raising process, a pattern of 1.5 inch holes are drilled through the sunken slab on your walkway, driveway or patio.

Step 2

During the raising process, a grout mixture is then pumped through these holes and under the sunken concrete. The grout mixture fills any voids under the slab and begins to put upward pressure on the slab. This upward pressure then slowly raises the sunken concrete to its original grade.

Step 3

After the raising process the 1.5″ holes are patched using a non-shrinking concrete mixture. The level surface is then cleaned with water and within hours your walkways and driveways are usable.

Personnel and Equipment used in the Process:

Concrete Lifting/Mudjacking requires specialized operators and equipment to complete jobs safely and efficiently. The specialized equipment includes:

  • Truck Mounted Raw Material Hoppers (Sand/Clay and Portland Cement)
  • Truck Mounted Raw Materials Conveyor System
  • Truck Mounted Paddle Mixer
  • Portable Grout Pump
  • Concrete Drills
  • Concrete Saws


Hello Kevin,

Thanks very much for the caulking and sand info.I wanted to also tell you what an absolute pleasure it was to have you and Merit do the work on my driveway. From the minute you arrived to do the estimate, to work day when Reg introduced himself, through to finish and the extra time and professional knowledge and support you provided at the end of your day. Every encounter with you and Merit was professional, respectful, knowledgeable, timely, and truly hassle-free. I always felt you were honest and full of integrity in both personal and professional character. I appreciate that….and as a single woman I can tell you that it is a rare occasion that I felt treated with such respect and feel perfectly happy with our business dealings. If I ever have the opportunity to recommend a concrete repair company, I will most definitely be recommending you and Merit.Thank you for providing such the wonderful experience and a great job on my driveway and sidewalk.

Please pass this along to Reg and anyone else you would like to share it with.


Dear Kevin ,

I thank you all for your thorough work, timeliness –  both for use of good weather and follow through to do the work when you said you would do it.

And especially, I thank you,  Reg, for your kindness ensuring that I understood exactly what the situation was and what was needed to be done to correct that, and that I will always appreciate.

With best wishes to you all,

Blessings, Donna
