Foundation Repair Methods
There are many ways to fix foundation problems. While every process works to add stability to the foundation, each has its own advantages.
To lift concrete slabs, stabilize soil, and seal leaks, we use heavy-duty polyurethane foam. It is quick and efficient, reaching 90% strength in just 15 minutes. The foam can also support up to 14,000 pounds per square feet. This foam is ideal for humid environments because it creates a watertight seal.
This repair method transfers the weight of the structure onto stable clays, which are typically found about 10 feet below the surface. This repair method is versatile and can be used in any type of situation. It also offers durability and value not found in other methods. Repairs can be done in as little as one to three working days.
Similar to traditional pier pilings steel piers transfer the building’s weight to a solid part of the soil. Steel piers can last a lifetime and are stronger than traditional pressed pilings. Because there is no cure time, the process is fast.
Drilled Bell Bottom Piers
The drilling tool allows us to penetrate soil well below the surface. The specialized pier is then installed. It has superior strength, stability, durability, and endurance than traditional piers. The bell-shaped bottom provides stability. For added durability, the shaft is filled in with concrete and reinforced with steel.
Moisture Containment Barriers
It contracts when soil becomes too dry. It expands if it is too moist. Your foundation could be damaged by heaving, falling, or other causes. By directing groundwater away from the foundation, moisture containment barriers control the moisture levels.
Retaining walls can be repaired if they show common signs of damage such as tilting, separations from adjacent walls, buckling or shifting, and rotting. This protects any structures on the slope where the retaining walls sits and any buildings that rely on the soil created by the retaining walls at the top.
