Void Filling Decatur
When it comes to concrete, most people are not even aware of how much concrete is in their homes because it is utilized as a base for most things including garage floors, driveways, sidewalks, steps and so much more. Over time and under the weight of pressure, concrete slabs can crack and become uneven or even sink in which can lead to bigger problems. If you have noticed these problems in your concrete, then chances are that there is a void beneath the concrete which needs to be filled. If this is the case in your home, then contact us so that we can provide you with a solution.
Over time, most concrete will end up developing some form of a void beneath it, because water erodes the soil beneath the concrete and it is simply unavoidable. Factors such as rain are uncontrollable and therefore other methods of protecting your concrete need to be put into place. As the soil is washed away little by little, the concrete loses the support provided by the soil and leads to cracks and voids. SO as you can see, chances are that at some point your home will probably need those voids to be filled. Luckily, we have got all your void filling needs covered.
If you are sitting with the problem of having voids in your concrete, then we have the perfect solution for you. The process of filling voids comprises injecting polyurethane foam directly into the void beneath the concrete. It is at this point that the foam expands, followed by the hardening process. The polyurethane foam then acts as the new support system for the concrete which was left void from the eroded soil beneath. Another benefit of this process is that the polyurethane is not only eco-friendly but also water-resistant. There is also no curing time because it sets immediately, which means the concrete will be ready for use as soon as we are finished.
Polyurethane foam is such a versatile material that its uses have been expanded too far more than just filling the void under your concrete. It can be used for things like blocking a tunnel that is no longer in use. Back voids between a retaining wall and the ground for example can also have their void filled using the same method. Deep foundation piles can also be filled. So if you aren't sure if we can use polyurethane foam to fill the void that you are dealing with, then contact us and we can discuss options that will result in a solution for you.
Concrete repair comes in many different forms, however, the different solutions have different efficacy rates in terms of how long it will last. Many people are fond of using polyurethane foam because it is a relatively cost-effective method while causing basically no downtime and being environmentally friendly. This is surely a much more affordable option than demolishing the concrete and building from scratch. So if you aren't sure if this method will work for you, then contact us to find out more about how it works and how it can work for you. Your concrete surfaces will thank us for it.
