Our good reputation with homeowners, architects, and engineers has been a key element to the continuing growth and stability of our company. We at The Mudjackers cover a wide spectrum of repairs for foundations, concrete slabs, forge presses, hydro dams, bridge cranes, highways, and sewer abandonment. Concrete overlays for residential and commercial applications. In addition, we install pilings for new and old structures. The type of slab The Mudjackers raises is referred to as "floating concrete" meaning the concrete moves with the ground. The ground can move as a result of frost and thawing or the amount of moisture present in the soil at different times of the year. Therefore, it is necessary to use material that is able to take on or release moisture at the same rate as the surrounding soil as to float the concrete properly [note not using cement]. When new concrete is installed, a base of compacted sand and/or gravel is used. Logic assumes it would be best to raise the sunken slab with more of the same, but it is not possible to pump pure sand. A pumping aid is needed. Our engineered material is mixed at each job site to adjust for each condition encountered. Our formulation has enough flexibility to fill voids and pockets. This will result in using more material providing a more thorough complete solution that has a stronger P.S.I. rating greater than a normal base for concrete. Some competitors mixtures are cement based that can set up too quickly. This creates a "pillaring effect" with material established as pillars and leaving voids throughout the affected area.

Est. 1939

In 1974 Woody’s Development work at IBM in Rochester Minnesota the front of the Dump truck had the name The Mudjackers which later became the name of the company. 

Frank C. Sharkey Mudjacking contractors was one of the first independent contractors established in 1939. The   business merged with Woody’s Development / The Mudjackers in Jan. 1968.

The method was developed in 1929 by John Poulter of Mount Pleasant, Iowa.

Some of the first mudjacking machines were manufactured by the Koehring Company based in Port Washington, WI. The mudjacking machine was developed over 65 years ago.

Concrete slab structures are rigid and durable if properly constructed, and depend largely on their support or base for maximum life and service. For various reasons, voids sometimes occur beneath or around the slab structure   causing slab failure.

To alleviate these conditions the Mud-Jack machine was developed. It is now a time - proven, cost effective means to restoring concrete slabs to proper grade.​

The History of Mudjacking, Slabjacking & The Mudjackers. ​

In 1974 Waukesha Freeman interviewed Woody Wilson of Woody’s Development Corp which later became The Mudjackers. If you look close at the truck behind Woody the name The Mudjackers was already part of the company’s name.
