Commercial/Industrial Foundation Repair in North Carolina
If you live in North Carolina, there is a good chance that your business may be
in need of foundation repair. North Carolina has diverse geography, ranging from sandy islands to mountains with 400 different types of soil. When the soil beneath your foundation in North Carolina becomes wet, it will expand and when it is dry, it will heave. This constant shifting of the soil beneath your business will also cause your business’ foundation to shift and settle. This will eventually cause foundation failure. It is a good idea to look around your business and see if you see any of the signs of foundation problems. Some of these signs are:
- Cracks in walls
- Cracks in floors
- Leaning chimney
- Doors and windows that stick
- Bowing or leaning walls
- Garage column cracks
- Sloping or uneven floors
- Drywall cracks
- Foundation cracks
- Cracked stoop or porch
If you notice any of these signs of foundation failure, the professionals at Grout Tech has the solution for you. We use underpinning products such as helical anchors and steel piers to lift your foundation back to its original level. These piers are driven deep into the ground through the unstable soil until they reach more suitable, stable soil. These piers are individually load tested to assure that they will hold the weight of the structure. The structure is then hydraulically lifted onto the piers to stabilize the foundation. Your foundation will be stable for years to come.
The products we use are the best in the industry manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP). With the experience of our team at Grout Tech and with the best products available, you can be assured that your foundation repair will be done professionally.
Basement Waterproofing in North Carolina
Water in your basement or crawl space can threaten your business’ possessions along
with your customer’s health. A wet basement is an inviting place for mold and mildew to grow. Water will enter your basement through any opening it can find.
To protect your basement or crawl space, Grout Tech has several waterproofing solutions. Some of the solutions we offer for water management are:
- Interior drainage
- Exterior drainage
- Sump pit installation
- Sump pump installation
- Battery backup sump pump
Interior drainage consists of installing a perforated drain pipe inside the perimeter of the footing. This pipe will drain the water away from the foundation and basement, preventing it from finding its way into your basement.
Exterior drainage stops the water from collecting around the foundation where it causes problems. Our exterior waterproofing system consists of:
- Waterproofing membrane
- Dimple drainage board
- 4″ perforated drain pipe
- 4″ drain pipe fittings
- ECP sump basin
- Combination primary and backup sump pump
- Sump pump discharge freeze guard
Don’t let water in your basement become a problem. Contact the professionals at Grout Tech. We can also repair your wet crawl space by installing a vapor barrier. The vapor barrier we use is thicker and puncture resistant so that it will last for many years to come.
