Concrete problems in Alabama occur due to dry soil. Concrete absorbs water from the soil and when the soil gets too dry, the concrete becomes brittle and cracks. Another problem that can cause concrete problems is too much water. When the soil beneath the concrete becomes too saturated, the soil will heave, causing the concrete to heave.

Repairing concrete is much less costly and much less disruptive than replacing concrete. We use polyurethane/and or epoxy injections for concrete repair. Epoxy crack injections is also referred to as concrete welding. These injections will fill the cracks and also lift and level your concrete back to its original structural load requirements. Epoxy injections protect the rebar, stops water leakage, and is a technique for welding the cracks in concrete back together.

Another area where epoxy injections can offer repair is in the delamination of concrete structures. Examples are bridge decks and self supporting structures where the most delamination is shearing of the concrete. Epoxy resins are injected to fill the hollow plane and fill the voids, preventing further delamination.

What is Pressure Grouting Alabama?

If you are faced with a sinking or settling foundation, consider pressure grouting for your solution. Compaction or pressure grouting occurs when we inject a very stiff grout mixture at a high pressure into specific areas in the soil. The grout then compacts the soil around the areas of injection. This is most commonly done in stages, usually working from the bottom of a deep injection to the top. If there is a shallow area, top down injections can also be used to strengthen and contain the pressure of the soil. Here at Grout Tech, we will be happy to help you with all of your pressure grouting Alabama needs.

Not only does pressure grouting strengthen the soil, it lifts and supports the sinking foundation. When the grout is injected, the pressure compacts the soil and raises the foundation. In a sinkhole situation, the area is filled, and remediated if needed. Pressure grouting Alabama is useful for most sinking foundation situations, whether it be your home, garage, or commercial building. It is used to correct errors in concrete and masonry structures, or before construction to solidify the foundation and prevent possible problems.
