Foundation Repair Services in Miramar
Foundations develop problems for a variety of reasons, and the most common one is water. When the soil around and under a foundation has either too much or too little water it can cause the foundation to move, and this movement can cause serious structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
Sunken concrete slabs are an eyesore, for sure. However, if you’ve ever tripped and fallen on a piece of unlevel concrete, you know they’re also a safety hazard. That makes them a liability. If someone trips and gets injured, you could get sued. So, this is a repair you don’t want to put off.
The two‘’old school’’ methods of repairing an unlevel slab were mudjacking, and tearing up the old slab and replacing it with a new one. Both solutions have problems though…
Mudjacking injects a cement slurry under the slab in order to lift it back up. The problem with mudjacking is the weight of the slurry. It’s heavy because it contains cement. If the slab sunk because the soil wasn’t able to support it, adding even more weight to the soil by using a cement slurry isn’t going to help. It could make the slab sink even more.
Tearing up the sunken slab and pouring a new one also has problems. For one, it’s an expensive and time-consuming repair. A newly poured slab needs time to harden(cure) and dry. While it’s doing that you won’t be able to use it. Also, if the old slab sunk because the soil couldn’t hold it up, the same thing will happen with the new slab.
Today, there’s an even better way to lift and level sunken concrete: polyurethane foam injection.
During the polyurethane foam injection procedure a special, ultra-lightweight foam is injected under the slab. It immediately expands and lifts the slab. Because it’s so lightweight, it won’t add additional weight to soil that’s already having trouble supporting the slab. As soon as the repair is complete, you can begin using the slab again.
Seawalls act as a barrier between land and water, and are necessary if you want to protect your property from erosion. But, seawalls themselves can erode. This can happen from hurricanes, tropical storms, or other types of extreme weather, tidal fluctuations, and a 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.
