Sometimes replacing old concrete isn’t always necessary. Concrete that has been damaged due to sinking can often be repaired through one of three methods: slabjacking, foundation remedial or deep grouting. How do you know if your concrete is damaged due to sinking? Look at mortar joints in brick walls, windowsills, moldings and trim boards. If you see cracking or gaps this may be a sign that your concrete is sinking.
Which Repair Is Right For You?
Sunken concrete can often be repaired using a procedure called slab or mud jacking. We drill holes through your concrete and pump slurry under it to lift the concrete until it is even. The holes are then filled to resemble the slab as close as possible and your concrete is ready to be used again!
Advantages to Slabjacking:
When an entire home or building is sinking, our Pier systems can lift the foundation back to its original position and stabilize it.
DEEP GROUTING is a cost effective technique for the re-compaction and stabilization of subsoils to greater depths than economically feasible with traditional methods. Depths of 15 to 75 feet are not uncommon. Often, soil problems can be traced to poorly compacted fill, loose soils, infiltration of water, and failure to over excavate and re-compact a building site properly.
Compaction Grouting has been found to reduce the possible damage of liquefaction of soils during seismic events. This technique uses a clear low slump grout that can be pumped slowly under high pressure into the soils with predictable results that will densify and re-compact the soils. When required, our high pressure pumps can sustain pressures that will fracture the soils and lift up the land and structures that lie upon it.
