Much of the plentiful rain in St. Petersburg, FL comes during a short time period. The weather patterns in St. Petersburg, though enjoyed by its citizens, can actually cause some foundation damage. During the rainy season in St. Petersburg, the ground can become extremely saturated. This saturation can place what is called hydrostatic pressure on a home’s foundation. If this pressure surpasses the load a foundation can hold, it will begin to crack.
These cracks can let in water, insects, and even critters. If you notice this type of issue happening during an especially rainy time, give us a call. We utilize Earth Contact Products underpinning products. These products are used to lift and level your foundation or slab. We will give you an estimate prior to starting your product so you will know the scope and cost of your foundation or slab repairs.
Because St. Petersburg is located on the coast, it is important for homes and businesses in the area to have a solid seawall. The seawall is a structure that prevents seawater from eroding the shore washing away the soil that supports your home’s foundation. That is why any damage to your seawall should be repaired as soon as possible. Our seawall repair solutions provide the following benefits:
We offer both targeted grout injection (to fill voids in the ground and stabilize seawalls) and helical seawall anchors (to pull them back into position) for seawall repair in St. Petersburg, FL. These solutions help to repair damage to the seawall and prevent structural issues from arising as a result of erosion.
This rain can also raise another concern for Florida residents due to the excess of limestone in the soil, which is easily eroded by rain. Sinkholes are a serious issue in Florida, and heavy rainfall makes them even more likely to occur. If you notice signs like misaligned windows and doors, sloping floors, leaning walls, or cracks in your floors and walls in your St. Petersburg home, give us a ring.
We will inspect your home and determine whether or not you should be concerned about a sinkhole. We can even find a solution to sinkhole problems with our compaction grouting to fill in the loose soil beneath your home.
