Have you discovered foundation cracks in your detached garage, storage shed, or other concrete slab? While these cracks can be unpleasing to the eye, they can also indicate that the slab has experienced settling, which can compromise the structural integrity of your property. At Tilted Concrete Solutions, we not only provide superior concrete leveling services to homeowners and business owners in the Houston area, we provide slab foundation lifting services as well.
How It Works
You might find yourself wondering just how our skilled technicians can raise a heavy concrete foundation. While it sounds like a challenging task, it can be accomplished quickly and efficiently with the right materials and procedures.
Upon completing an assessment of the troublesome slab, our crew will begin the deep pressure grouting process by injecting a geotechnical stabilizing foam approximately 12 feet below the bottom of the slab. When the foam compound mixes with the soil, it forms a stable subsurface foundation for the next steps. Once the initial base layer of geotechnical grouting is complete, additional grouting is completed at two-foot intervals up to the bottom of the concrete slab foundation.
The result is a carefully crafted, soil-stabilizing, subsurface solution that lifts the sunken foundation, lessening the appearance of foundation cracks and unevenness.
Residential and Commercial Applications
This process is so versatile and customizable that it can be used for a broad range of applications, and whether you require foundation lifting in a commercial or residential setting, our team can help. Geotechnical grouting is very useful for lifting concrete slabs beneath the following types of structures:
- Detached garages — uneven concrete slabs can lead to improper drainage and cracked expansion joints. Deep pressure grouting can restore a smooth parking surface and proper water shedding.
- Storage sheds — sunken foundations can lead to pooling water, potentially damaging your stored goods. Foundation lifting surfaces will ensure you have a flat, dry surface upon which to store your personal belongings or business inventory.
- Gazebos — uneven gazebo pads can be an eyesore and a safety hazard. Whether your gazebo is for personal or commercial use, restoring the surface of the pad ensures a beautiful attraction for guests that is safe.
- Barns — settled foundations in barns can lead to serious structural problems, presenting a safety hazard for your livestock. Commercial and residential barn owners can restore structural integrity with foundation stabilization services.
In addition to these structural applications, deep compaction grouting may also be useful for stabilizing soil that is prone to shifting and settling. Because it displaces and compacts loose subsurface soil, geotechnical grouting is a viable solution for bracing and reinforcing unsteady ground so that it is safe for future residential and commercial endeavors.
