Foundation Repair Services in Pinellas Park FL
You may be surprised to hear that most foundation issues are caused by either too much or too little water under and around your home’s foundation. Too much water can cause either soil expansion or soil erosion, depending on the type of soil under the foundation, while too little water can cause soil shrinkage. Both have the ability to cause serious structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
Sunken concrete sidewalks, driveways, and pool decks are eyesores that will lower your home’s value. That’s bad enough. However, they’re also a safety hazard. If someone trips, falls, and gets injured as a result of your uneven slab, you could find yourself facing a nasty lawsuit.
In the past, sunken slabs were repaired either by simply digging them up and replacing them with new slabs, or via a procedure commonly referred to as ‘’mudjacking’’. Both these solutions have problems though…
Digging up and replacing a slab is a time-consuming fix. Freshly poured concrete needs a certain amount of time to dry and harden (cure). That means downtime where you won’t be able to use the new slab. Also, if the old slab sunk because the soil couldn’t hold it up, the same thing will happen with the new slab.
Mudjacking uses a slurry made up of cement, water, and soil, to lift the foundation back up. The problem here is that the slurry is heavy because there’s cement in it. If the soil wasn’t able to hold up the old slab, adding even more weight to it won’t help. In fact, it could have the opposite effect.
Today, there’s an even better way to lift and level sunken concrete. It’s called polyurethane foam injection.
During the polyurethane foam injection procedure, a super lightweight foam is injected under the slab in order to lift and level it. It’s a minimally-invasive solution, and a cost-effective alternative to digging up and replacing the slab. The lightweight foam also won’t burden the soil with additional weight. Perhaps the best part is the fact that 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.
A seawall protects your beachfront property from erosion by forming a barrier between the land and the water. Unfortunately, seawalls themselves aren’t immune to erosion. Over time, due to things like extreme weather, tidal fluctuations, and a slowly rising sea level, they will eventually start to fail. If your seawall is starting to fail, contact us today and we’ll come out for an inspection and free estimate.
