It doesn’t matter if it’s a residential home or a large industrial building, its structural integrity rests – literally – on its foundation. If the foundation has a problem, the building sitting on top of it could experience serious structural damage. Therefore, you’ll want to catch foundation issues early, before they have a chance to turn into big problems that will cost you an arm and a leg to fix. If you’ve noticed any of the foundation issues listed above, contact us today for a free repair estimate.
Foundation Repair Services in Plantation FL
Most of our customers are surprised to hear that water – either too much or too little of it – is the main cause of foundation problems. Too much water causes soil erosion under the foundation, and too little water can cause the soil to shrink. Both situations can, over time, cause structural damage.
At Foundation Professionals of Florida we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions including,
Concrete slabs such as sidewalks, driveways, and pool decks can sink and become uneven for a variety of reasons. If someone trips on the slab and gets injured on your property, you could find yourself facing a lawsuit. It happens. That’s why this isn’t a repair you want to put on the back burner.
Traditionally, uneven concrete slabs were handled in one of two ways, either by digging up the uneven slab and replacing it with a new one, or via a repair method known as ‘’mudjacking’’. Neither one was a particularly effective solution though…
Digging up the old slab and replacing it, is time consuming because you need to wait for the new slab to harden and dry before you can use it. Also, slabs often become uneven because the soil under them is weak and incapable of supporting the slab. If this is the case, replacing the slab isn’t going to solve the problem, and then you’ll be facing another repair.
Mudjacking involves using a cement slurry to lift and level the slab. However, the slurry is heavy because there’s cement in it. If the soil under the slab is weak, adding even more weight to it is the opposite of what you want to do. In fact, mudjacking could make the slab sink even more.
Today, there’s an even better way to lift and level sunken concrete slabs: polyurethane foam injection.
Polyurethane foam injection uses a lightweight foam to lift and level the slab. The procedure involves drilling small holes in the slab(which will be filled later), and then using them to inject the foam under it. It’s a minimally-invasive procedure that – in most cases – takes only a few hours to complete. As soon as it’s done, you can start using the slab again.
A seawall’s job is to keep your beachfront property safe from erosion. Unfortunately, seawalls themselves are subject to erosion over time. The erosion is caused by tidal fluctuations, extreme weather like hurricanes and tropical storms, 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.
