Rockport Mudjacking Articles
Last August (2013), based upon
On Monday, September 23rd, I received a call from the
The men spent about seven hours digging holes about 5’ deep and 4’ apart and installing the PermaLock pilings. They placed the pilings into the holes and jacked the footing under the chain wall. When completed, the overall increase in the height of the wall was approximately ½”. That was certainly not the expectation I had when accepting the proposal. It did not even come close to remedying the problem with the door. I would not have been willing to pay $4,000 for only ½” of increase in the height of the wall. The proper and safe operation of the front door was the primary objective of the work, but that has not been achieved.
Before leaving, the supervisor and I discussed the results and he suggested that I could cut the bottom of the door to allow it to clear the floor. Of course this is not a solution because it would then necessitate installing an elevated threshold on the floor under the door to seal up the opening. Such a threshold would then be far too high to be safe and would constitute a tripping hazard.
I subsequently wrote a detailed letter to Mr.
As far as a grade goes, it would have to be an “F”. The only thing they did that might merit some points is the installation of the PermaLock pilings. But, even that is of little or no value because the wall had long since settled and was stable at that level. There is no way to measure whether there is any value to the pilings because they did not accomplish the major task of leveling the floor so that the door would open completely. Of course, I would never contract with
Overall, I felt that as a customer I was treated extremely poorly. She was very rude and short when speaking with me and acted as if I was putting her out by just having to speak with me.

After my experiences with them, I am disappointed we will be out 30k but I'm glad it's not in this companies pocket!
If you are considering having concrete work done I suggest looking elsewhere.
I was very pleased with the leveling of the concrete. I could actually drive straight into my garage without having to climb up over the

The bid we received was fairly priced, coming in about 10% below the bids of two other contractors including Boss Mudjacking. All companies put their bids in with the caveat that there is no way to fully know how much fill would be needed to level the concrete. The pricing for
The day that the work was performed, which was a few short weeks after the bid,

They were fast and efficient and we love the job.
On a different note, before posting this review I decided to read some other reviews about Aztec and was floored by what some NON-customers had to say about this company. I find it extremely strange that you wouldn't do your homework on a company before hiring them especially knowing how many fly by nights that are out there. I thoroughly did my homework beforehand and that's how I came across
