Question Is Slab Jacking a Good Idea

My patio is settling towards our house and rain drains into the gap between the slab and the house. The slab is in good shape so it seems to be a good candidate for slab jacking, is the a good and economical way to go ?

Would'nt slab jacking be much cheaper than repouring?

Also I am wondering if anyone has had good results with slab jacking.

Thanks Hank.

not necessary.

and my dad jacked up our patio one time. its not that cheap, and you can get unwanted breakage in spots. you can also notice the holes where they needed to core the concrete out.

An old girlfriend had her patio mud jacked while we were dating. It had settled toward the house about 4-5 inches. We were pleased with the result and at the time (circa 1993) it wasn't terribly expensive. You can see the holes but the contractor filled them with something that matched the concrete well enough that they weren't too noticeable.
