The vast majority of foundation problems are caused by water, either too much of it, or too little. Too much water can cause soil erosion, while not enough water can cause the soil under and around your foundation to shrink. Both scenarios can destabilize your foundation and cause structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
Probably everyone reading this has – at some point – tripped over an uneven concrete slab. If you didn’t get injured, consider yourself lucky, because that does happen. If it happens to someone on your property, you could find yourself facing a lawsuit.
Digging up the old slab and replacing it with a new one is time-consuming and expensive. After you pour a new concrete slab you have to wait for it to dry and harden. That means a certain amount of downtime where you can’t use the new slab. Also, if the old slab became uneven because the soil wasn’t able to support it, what do you think is going to happen to the new one? You guessed it.
Mudjacking involves injecting a cement slurry under the uneven slab in order to lift it back up. The problem with mudjacking is the weight of the slurry. Anything with cement in it is going to be heavy. Adding additional weight to soil that’s probably already struggling to hold up a slab isn’t going to work in the long run. In fact, the slab could sink even more as a result of mudjacking.
Today, a procedure called polyurethane foam injection is used to lift sunken slabs. It involves drilling small holes in the slab(which will be covered later), and then injecting the ultra-lightweight polyurethane foam under it. The foam expands almost immediately and this lifts the slab back up. It’s a quick repair that usually takes no more than a few hours, and as soon as it’s done, the slab is ready for use again. No downtime!
Seawalls do a great job of protecting your North Miami Beach beachfront property from erosion. The problem is, seawalls themselves can erode over time from hurricanes and tropical storms, tidal fluctuations, and a slowly rising sea level. At some point, they will start to fail. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll come out for an inspection and free estimate.
