A building’s structural integrity rests on the soundness of its foundation. Unfortunately, even minor foundation problems can eventually lead to serious structural damage if they’re not repaired in a timely manner. Since structural damage will lower your home’s value and lead to costly repairs, foundation problems aren’t something you want to ignore. It’s best to catch them early. If you’ve noticed any of the foundation issues listed above, contact us today for a free repair estimate.

Most foundation problems are caused by water, either too much or too little. Too much water under and around your foundation can cause soil erosion or soil expansion. Too little water can cause the soil under and around your home’s foundation to shrink. This movement in the soil caused by either too much or too little water can, over time, cause serious structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
Sunken concrete slabs such as sidewalks, driveways, and pool decks, are eyesores. They’re also a safety hazard and a liability. If someone trips over unlevel concrete and gets injured, you could find yourself facing a lawsuit. Therefore, this isn’t a repair you want to put off for too long.
The two ‘’old school’’ methods of lifting and leveling sunken concrete involved either digging up and replacing the slab, or using a technique called ‘’mudjacking’’ to lift the slab by injecting a heavy cement slurry under it. Both these methods have drawbacks though. Replacing a slab by pouring new concrete is both time-consuming and expensive. There’s also a certain amount of downtime required as you wait for the new slab to harden and dry. The problem with the second method – mudjacking – is that the cement slurry is heavy and adds more weight to soil that’s probably already having trouble supporting a slab. This could easily cause the slab to sink even more.
Today, there’s an even better way to lift and level sunken concrete: polyurethane foam injection.
Polyurethane foam injection involves injecting a super lightweight foam under the slab in order to raise it back up again. It’s a minimally-invasive, cost-effective alternative to replacing the slab, and the lightweight foam won’t burden the soil with additional weight. There’s also no downtime required. You can use the slab again as soon as the repair is complete. Oh, and it’s a green solution. The polyurethane foam will not leach into the soil.
Seawalls protect your property from erosion and serve as a defensive barrier between land and water. Unfortunately, seawall erosion is common among Florida’s beachfront homes. It’s caused by tidal fluctuations, extreme weather like hurricanes and tropical storms, and the sea level very slowly rising. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll come out for an inspection and free estimate.
