Mudjacking Concrete Repair – Maritz Inc 63099
Foundation repair for someone's home is frequently only looked at in times of an emergency. The home owner might be sitting in his or her living room when they notice a crack in the wall, or in more serious situations, they see a big crack in the bricks on the exterior of the property. This is disturbing to say the least.
Usually a person's home is their most expensive investment. Sometimes foundation troubles are discovered upon the home owner wanting to sell the property and the buyer has hired an independent inspector. Time and money are much more critical since the owner is trying to sell his/her home fast while making enough for a deposit on another home.
How can one fix foundation issues? Some get in touch with professionals and some do it themselves. We recommend using the professional mudjacking services of our company simply because we use a number of techniques and methods. Mudjacking is one process utilized by foundation professionals to repair foundation problems. There are two methods of this this technique: filling the void and raising the interior flooring surfaces.
Filling the Void
Quite often, foundation problems in certain parts of Maritz Inc, Missouri 63099 are the result of the perimeter of the foundation settling. When constructing a house, concrete piers are set up under the perimeter grade beam. The first attempt to repair the problem is by using industry tools to return the home to its original position. After the readjustment, a void is usually created underneath the main slab.
We then use a "mudjacking" technique to fill this emptiness. This is achieved by drilling 2" holes through the perimeter grade beam surrounding the house and pumping a mixture of soil and cement grout into the void. Then the pockets are filled with a fluid mix of soil/cement grout.
Raise Interior Floors
In other scenarios, the inside area of the slab might have settled. Mudjacking is used to raise interior floors and is achieved from the inside of your house by drilling 2" holes through the slab in the areas which have settled and pumping a blend of soil/cement grout under the foundation. This process uses a stiff combination of soil/cement grout and is frequently associated with more complicated foundation problems.
Even though it appears simple enough, this is a fragile and involved process to do correctly. Being familiar with the common land issues around the area and through considerable experience, the process may become second nature to seasoned professionals from Mid America Piering.
