Deep Foam Injection
Few things are more demoralizing to a homeowner striving for beautiful curb appeal, a backyard oasis and a safe property than sunken concrete slabs. They look unkempt, create tripping hazards and are a favorite spot for weeds to grow. The sunken areas also collect water, which can cause the concrete to sink further.
Voids under the concrete usually cause these sinkholes. These voids can result from erosion beneath the slab or unstable soils. Previous foam injection systems addressed the subsurface failures, and now Advance Concrete Lifting and Leveling offers Alpharetta deep foam injection for deeper levels and sinkhole repair throughout Atlanta.
What Does Deep Foam Injection Do?
If sinking concrete is caused by more than just subsurface damage, repairing the subsurface will only partially fix the problem. Without a way to reinforce deeper into the soil, there is no way to stabilize underlying conditions. Deep foam injection is considered a significant upgrade from previous foam injection systems.
Deep foam injection works similarly to how a tree’s roots support soil structures. Extensive root systems snake in different directions, crossing over themselves multiple times and binding the dirt between them. This stabilizes the soil and prevents erosion. Deep foam injection works the same way. It repairs unstable soils and increases soil load-bearing capacity by flowing past the larger voids and into the small cracks and openings, creating solid areas where weak points once existed. With a stable underlying structure, the concrete is then raised at the subsurface level for a strong, long-lasting repair.
Deep foam injection is the perfect soil stabilization, void filling solution for:
- Lake wall repair/River wall repair
- Pool deck repair
- Foundation lift
- Foundation void repair
- Factory floor void repair
- Filling/stabilizing dangerous sinkholes
Alpharetta Deep Foam Injection
Using an engineering tool called a dual mass dynamic cone penetrometer (DCP), Advance Concrete Lifting and Leveling can test the soil. We do this to determine its density and ensure we give the substrate the exact strengthening and stability it needs, all the way down to 15 feet. After the carefully controlled deep foam injection process, we retest to confirm the operation was successful and the soil is solid. The inert foam does not react with its environment and does not leach any chemicals into the ground, making it a safe and effective solution for your concrete problems.
