Repair and Level Concrete Basement Floors
As a ground-level floor, the basement is often subject to dampness or water intrusion. Poor waterproofing can result in moisture seeping into the substrate. Oversaturated soil can begin to erode, shift or become compacted in certain areas.
Once voids form in the soil beneath your concrete basement floor, the surface will lose support. Eventually, the concrete will crack and sink. Once the structure is compromised, it can begin to impact surrounding structures such as walls, doors and even the basement ceiling.
Replacing a concrete basement floor is a large project. The cost will depend on the extent of damage and any repairs needed. A less expensive option involves the injection of polymer foam into the impacted slab. This process fills any voids in the soil and expands to create a supporting structure for the concrete above.
Soil Stabilization Testing and Analysis
Stabilizing the soil is one of the main methods of preventing future problems with concrete surfaces. Water permeability is one of the most significant issues in basement substrates. Erosion and lack of compressive strength can also compromise a concrete basement floor.
Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) Testing involves inserting an advanced cone tip into targeted areas. Advance Concrete Lifting and Leveling can determine soil density, load-bearing capacity and sheer strength. This allows us to identify non-cohesive soil that will not offer future stability to surfaces, such as a concrete basement floor.
