Foundation Repair Services in Coral Springs FL
You may be surprised to hear that most foundation problems are caused by water. Either too much or too little water under and around your foundation causes soil movement which can lead to serious structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
Sunken concrete slabs such as sidewalks and driveways are an eyesore that can lower your home’s value. They’re also a safety hazard. If someone’s unlucky enough to trip, fall, and get injured, you could find yourself facing a nasty lawsuit. Therefore, this isn’t a repair you want to postpone for long.
Sunken, unlevel, concrete slabs used to be repaired by either digging them up and replacing them with new slabs, or via a technique referred to as‘’mudjacking’’. Neither one was the ideal solution though.
Digging up and replacing a slab is a time consuming fix because a freshly poured slab needs time to dry and harden. That means you won’t be able to use the new slab right away. Also, concrete slabs often become uneven because the soil under them doesn’t offer the proper support. If this is the case, the same thing will happen with the new slab. It will start sinking.
Mudjacking uses a cement slurry(soil, water, cement) to lift the slab back up. The problem here is the weight of the slurry. It’s heavy because it contains cement. Adding a heavy cement slurry to soil that’s already having trouble supporting a slab isn’t going to help. In fact, your slab could sink even more.
Today, most sunken concrete slabs are lifted and leveled using polyurethane foam injection. This involves injecting a very lightweight foam under the slab in order to lift it. The procedure is minimally invasive and as soon as the repair is done, you can start using the slab again.
A seawall protects your Florida beachfront property from erosion. However, seawalls themselves can erode over time from extreme weather, tidal fluctuations, and a very slowly rising sea level. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll come out for an inspection and free estimate.
