Filling the Gap
Frequently, foundation problems in certain parts of Saint Louis, MO 63105 are the consequence of the border of the foundation settling. When constructing a home, concrete piers usually are installed beneath the perimeter grade beam. The very first attempt to fix the problem is by using industry tools to return the home to its original placement. After the readjustment, a void is usually created underneath the main slab.
We then make use of a "mudjacking" technique to fill up this emptiness. This is accomplished by drilling 2" divots through the perimeter grade beam surrounding the house and pumping a blend of soil and cement grout into the void. Then the holes are filled with a fluid blend of soil/cement grout.
Raise Interior Floors
In other cases, the interior area of the slab might have settled. Mudjacking is used to raise interior floors and is achieved from inside of your house by drilling 2" holes through the slab in the places which have settled and pumping a blend of soil/cement grout under the foundation. This process uses a stiff mix of soil/cement grout and is often associated with more complicated foundation problems.
