Foundation Repair Services in Coconut Creek FL
The most common reason for foundation problems is water. Either too much or too little of it can wreak havoc on a foundation and cause serious structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
Unsightly sunken sidewalks, driveways, and pool decks not only lower your property value, they’re also trip hazards. If someone trips and gets injured on your uneven slab it could result in a lawsuit. Therefore, uneven concrete should be repaired as soon as possible.
Two methods used in the past to fix a sunken slab were replacing the slab with a new one, and a repair method called‘’mudjacking’’. Both had their drawbacks though. Digging up and replacing a slab is a lot of work. After you pour the new slab you need to wait for it to dry before you can use it. Also, many times slabs sink because the soil can’t hold them up. If so, the new slab will eventually begin sinking as well.
Mudjacking fixes sunken concrete slabs by injecting a cement slurry underneath them. The slurry raises the slab back up to where it was before. The problem is, the slurry is heavy because it contains cement. Therefore, if the old slab sunk because the soil couldn’t support it, mudjacking certainly isn’t going to help because mudjacking means adding even more weight to the soil.
These drawbacks are why, today, almost all concrete lifting and leveling is done using polyurethane foam injection, or‘’slabjacking’’ as it’s often called.
Slabjacking involves drilling small holes in the slab(don’t worry, they’ll be filled in later) and then using them to inject the polyurethane foam under it. The foam expands almost immediately and as it does, it lifts the slab. Repairs usually take no more than a few hours and as soon as the repair is complete, you can begin using the slab again.
Seawalls work to defend your Florida beachfront property against erosion caused by – among other things – extreme weather and tidal fluctuations. Unfortunately, the seawalls themselves are subject to erosion by these same forces. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll come out for an inspection and free estimate.
