To ground in Florida is known to be full of limestone. Limestone is soluble in water and weak acid solutions, so it is very possible that the ground beneath your Florida home could be moving and eroding due to the break down of the limestone beneath it. This can cause cracks in your walls, floors, foundation, concrete slab, or sidewalks and driveways. We have cement grouting products that can be used to fill voids and lift slabs or concrete. This keeps your home and surrounding area safe and strong.
