Pool Deck Mud Jacking

Pool Deck Mud Jacking Project for Condo Association in Chesapeake, Virginia

Problem:

70 linear feet of concrete pool deck with a decorative brick overlay settled, resulting in a trip hazard of up to 1 inch at the back edge of the coping.  Skim coat had been applied to the area to smooth the trip hazard, but the area kept resettling.

Constraints: 

The brick overlay was over 20 years old, so finding a close match was difficult (had to visit five different brick yards).

Solution:

Sand-based grout injection (aka mud jacking, slab jacking & concrete leveling) to stabilize and raise the underlying concrete slab, replacement of the skim-coated bricks, and new caulking installation.

Result:

Pool deck mud jacking raised the underlying concrete slabs with the brick overlay in place.  After lifting, the damaged bricks were replaced and new caulking installed.
