Foundation Repair Services in Aventura FL

Foundation Repair

Most of our customers are surprised when they hear that water is the culprit behind most foundation problems. Either too much or too little of it and you’ll eventually end up with some type of foundation issue.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,

Concrete Leveling and Lifting

Uneven concrete is unsightly. Whether the sunken slab is a sidewalk, driveway, or pool deck, it lowers your property value and creates a safety hazard. If someone trips and gets injured, you could get sued. Therefore, don’t put this repair on the back burner. Get it done today.
The “old school” method of repairing an uneven slab involved either digging it up and replacing it, or fixing it via a procedure called ‘’mudjacking’’. These weren’t the best solutions though.
It takes time to dig up and replace a sunken concrete slab. Newly poured concrete can’t be used right away. It needs time to harden and dry. Also, if the slab sunk because the soil wasn’t able to support it, the same thing will happen with the new slab. In other words, you haven’t solved the underlying issue.
Mudjacking lifts the uneven slab by injecting a cement slurry under it. The problem with mudjacking is the weight of the slurry. It contains cement, so it’s pretty heavy. If the slab became unlevel because the soil wasn’t able to hold it up, adding even more weight to the soil via a cement slurry isn’t the right solution.
The drawbacks of both mudjacking and replacing the slab are the reason, today, most concrete slabs are lifted and leveled via polyurethane foam injection. The repair involves injecting a lightweight polyurethane foam under the slab in order to lift it back up. It’s a fast, minimally-invasive procedure that can usually be completed in 2-3 hours. As soon as the repair is complete, the slab is ready for use again.  The polyurethane foam will not leach into the soil, so it’s also an environmentally-friendly solution.

Seawall Repair

Seawalls serve as a barrier between land and water, and protect Florida’s beachfront homes from erosion. However, seawalls themselves can erode over time. This is caused by tidal fluctuations, hurricanes and tropical storms, and a slowly rising sea level. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll be out an inspection and free estimate.
