Deltona is a city in Florida with plenty of water. It sits on the north banks of Lake Monroe and Land of Lakes Florida. There are also many smaller lakes found within the city limits, which is why many businesses and homeowners rely on seawalls to maintain their properties.

Seawall erosion is a common problem in Deltona. It can happen due to the gradual rise and fall of the water but it typically happens when a tropical storm or hurricane comes through the area. When those problems occur, Foundation Professionals of Florida is there to help.

The Purpose of Seawalls In Deltona, Florida

Seawalls protect the property from flooding and soil erosion. They can also protect the depth of the water, allowing it to be used for recreational purposes, such as fishing and boating. When problems occur with the seawall, it can result in costly repairs, both to the wall and the property.

Common Signs Of Seawall Failure

Not every issue with a seawall is going to show in the same way. Being cognizant of the signs of seawall failure can help you to identify the issue before it gets out of control. Prompt action can save your property and save you money.

The common signs of seawall failure include:

Cracking or Breaking of the Seawall Structure

Regularly inspecting the seawall for cracks or breakage is important. This includes the parts of the seawall that aren’t easily accessible. We can help with those regular inspections.

Tilting or Leaning of the Seawall

If you notice the seawall is leaning or tilting, it is important to have it cared for right away. A seawall that is slightly leaning can quickly become a seawall that has failed completely.

Settling or Sinking of the Seawall in Certain Areas

The weight of the seawall sitting on areas that aren’t able to support it can cause it to sink. This problem can quickly get worse if it is not fixed.

Formation of Gaps or Holes in the Seawall

The action of the water, along with debris that may accumulate and pressure from the soil can cause a seawall to form gaps or holes. These can put your seawall at risk of complete failure.

Leakage of Water Through the Seawall

If water can leak through the seawall, it can erode and saturate the soil, causing additional problems. If you notice soil erosion or sinkholes by the seawall, call Foundation Professionals of Florida right away.

How To Repair A Damaged Seawall?

Homeowners are not often equipped to handle the process of seawall repair on their own. It requires special skills and equipment, which can be provided by Foundation Professionals of Florida.

Here are a few techniques that we use to repair a damaged seawall:

Targeted Grout Injection

Concrete structures that have cracks or voids, are sinking or settling, or are otherwise showing signs of structural degradation are frequently repaired with targeted grout injection. Targeted grout injection can stop additional deterioration and prolong the life of the concrete structure by filling cracks and stabilizing the structure.

Prime Resin Products

The deep injection of polyurethane foam and other prime resin products into the soil behind the seawall can protect it from further damage. The foam expands to fill voids and hardens like a rock.

Seawall Underpinning

Seawall underpinning is commonly used in cases where the existing seawall is unstable, settling, or showing signs of failure due to soil movement, corrosion, or other factors. It involves using anchors drilled into the soil behind the wall being attached to the wall to adjust and support it.

Seawall Drainage

A proper seawall drainage system helps to direct water away from the wall and prevent it from penetrating the structure or causing erosion. It allows the water to drain without the loss of soil.

Seawall Reinforcing

Seawall reinforcing can be done through various methods, including adding additional materials to the wall, such as steel reinforcement bars or concrete, or by repairing and reinforcing the existing structure.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

Unencapsulated crawl spaces are home to moisture, mold, insects, and rodents. After we encapsulate the crawl space, it will be a clean, dry space that can be used for storage.


Sinkhole Repair and Remediation

Sinkhole repair typically involves filling the hole with a material, such as concrete or compacted soil, and reinforcing the surrounding ground to prevent further collapse. For more serious problems, we may employ other methods, such as polyurethane injections to fill the voids.

Basement Waterproofing

Basement Waterproofing

The goal of basement waterproofing is to keep the basement dry and prevent water from causing structural damage or creating a breeding ground for mold and mildew.

concrete slab

Slab Lifting and Leveling

Slab lifting is typically done using a concrete leveling technique known as polyurethane foam injection. We recommend this and not mudjacking because it is a superior process. Mudjacking could make the matter worse as it injects heavy material into an area that is already having a hard time supporting the concrete.

stairstep cracks in block wall

Structural Crack Repair

Cleaning the crack, preparing the surface, injecting the material, and allowing it to cure are all steps in structural crack repair. The choice of the repair material is determined by the structure’s size, nature, position, and purpose.
