Your home’s structural integrity is only as good as the soundness of its foundation. In fact, foundations are so important that even minor issues can eventually lead to major structural damage if they’re not repaired in a timely manner. Unrepaired foundation problems can lower your home’s value. Therefore, it’s best to catch and repair them early. If you’ve noticed any of the foundation issues listed above, contact us today for a free repair estimate.

Water plays a major role in foundation problems. Either too much or too little of it in the soil can cause significant structural damage. If there’s too much water in the soil around a foundation, it could lead to either soil erosion or soil expansion. On the other hand, if there isn’t enough water – for example, during a drought – this can cause the soil under and around your foundation to shrink. Soil erosion, soil expansion, and soil shrinkage can cause serious structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
If you’ve ever tripped over a sunken concrete slab, you know they’re a safety hazard and a liability. If someone gets injured on your property, you could even find yourself facing a lawsuit. Of course, unlevel concrete slabs such as sidewalks, pool decks, and driveways are also eyesores that can negatively affect property value.
The problem with ripping up a sunken slab and then pouring new concrete is that it’s an expensive, time-consuming fix. Whenever you pour new concrete you need to wait for it to dry and harden before you can use it. Therefore, replacing the slab is going to include some downtime where you won’t be able to use the slab.
Mudjacking involves drilling holes in the concrete and then injecting a slurry(made up of soil, water, and cement) under the slab in order to lift it back up. The main problem with this method is the fact that the slurry is heavy because it has cement in it. If the soil was already having trouble holding up the slab, dumping a heavy cement slurry on top of it isn’t going to help. In fact, it could cause the slab to sink even more.
Today, sunken concrete slabs are lifted and leveled via polyurethane foam injection.
Polyurethane foam injection is a procedure similar to mudjacking, but instead of using a heavy cement slurry to lift the slab, it uses a super lightweight foam. Because the polyurethane foam doesn’t add more weight to the soil, the slab will remain level. It’s less expensive than replacing the slab and there’s no downtime. As soon as the repair is complete, you can start using the slab again.
Seawall erosion plagues many a Florida beachfront home. It’s caused by a variety of things including extreme weather(hurricanes and tropical storms), tidal fluctuations, and a sea level that rises very slowly.
Seawalls are designed to protect your property from erosion and form a necessary defensive barrier between land and water.
Therefore, you want to make sure yours remains in good shape. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll come out for an inspection and free estimate.
