Industrial & Commercial Foundation Repair in Louisiana
For commercial and industrial businesses in Louisiana, we recommend for you to look around your buildings and see if notice any of the signs of foundation failure. The soil beneath your Louisiana business can shift and settle which causes your foundation follow suit. This can lead to foundation failure. Whether a large industrial structure or small commercial building, you can watch for the signs. Some of the signs to look for are:
- Doors and windows that stick
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Drywall cracks
- Foundation cracks
- Cracked stoop or porch
- Cracks in walls
- Cracks in floors
- Leaning chimney
- Sloping or uneven floors
- Garage column cracks
If you see any of these first signs of foundation failure, contact the professionals at Nichols/Grout Tech. We have the equipment, products, and experience to get your foundation back to its original level and stabilized. The longer you wait to get your foundation repaired, the more damage will occur to your business.
Our underpinning products such as helical anchors and steel piers will stabilize your foundation. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil until they reach a stable bedrock. We drive each pier individually and load test each one. Then with hydraulic equipment, the foundation is lifted onto the piers which level out your foundation and keeps it stable for years to come.
The products we use for underpinning are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the best in the industry. With these products and our team of experts, you can be assured that your foundation repair will be done professionally and will keep your business stable for as long as you are there.

Slabjacking in Louisiana
Nichols/Grout Tech also offers slabjacking to level your concrete. Grout is pumped through the concrete, lifting it up from underneath and leveling it. We drill small holes through the affected concrete and inject the grout to fill any of the voids beneath the slab. After the slab is lifted, the holes are filled and the site is cleaned up. This process is much less expensive than replacing concrete.
We have been in business since 1981 and have earned an outstanding reputation and we tend to keep it that way. You can rely on Nichols/Grout Tech to get the repairs done professionally and make sure that you are satisfied with the results. The customer is our first priority.
