According to the National Floor Safety Institute the average medical cost from a slip/trip fall is $22,800! The potential legal costs and jury awards are several times that amount. Rather than ignore the “little trip” have it fixed by Slabjack Geotechnical.

Whether it be a walk from your driveway, a trip on your driveway or a sidewalk by the street, you, the homeowner, not the city, are responsible for maintaining the walk and keeping it free from snow, debris and known hazards such as trips due to settled concrete.

A quick and unobtrusive process, Slabjacking raises settled concrete through the use of an expanding polymer grout. Most jobs are done in a couple of hours and the walk is available for immediate use. No waiting for forms, concrete and curing. No destruction of lawns or plant, just a quick drill, inject and patch.

Concrete Voids- Slabjack Geotechnical

Voids under concrete eventually lead to cracking and/or settling concrete. Voids are created when concrete is partially supported by base soils or through the use of anchors or rebar to foundation walls or through the use of Sonotubes. As the soil settles or is carried away by other means a gap opens up between the soil and the bottom of the concrete slab resulting in a loss of support.

Un-compacted fill dirt, erosion, burrowing rodents, decaying organic material even a loss of moisture in the soil can create voids. Once there, voids are difficult to fill. Smaller slabs such as walks can be packed with gravel or sand to fill voids but this is not practical for larger slabs such as driveways or patios. These need a method that supports but doesn’t lift the slab. Using an expansive polymer is the ideal material for void filling for several reasons such as;

Polyurethane can travel several feet in every direction to fill voids, fissures and holes. It has the ability to consolidate organic material, sand and loose rock. If properly monitored Polymer injection can provide support without excessively lifting or stressing the slab which causes fractures.

The question with new construction is what should I do? Settling of soil in new construction can go on as long as 10 years so the question becomes do you live with it and replace your broken up concrete at some later time or do you try and preserve it knowing that you may have someone out 2, 3 or 4 times in the next decade to shore up what should’ve been taken care of during initial construction. Immediate replacement of settled concrete or concrete with voids is not a good choice as settling is not yet complete.

If you see a void opening up under your concrete slabs give the concrete raising and leveling professionals a call we will get you taken care of.

Having Drainage Issues?-Slabjack Geotechnical

A big part of eliminating settled concrete is to plan your drainage system. Addressing runoff will pay dividends for years to come not only in reduced settling but in keeping your basement dry and foundation stable.

Some communities do not allow gutters to be directed into storm drains or into the municipal sewer system and therefore must be handled by French drains and simple sloping of top soils to direct runoff well away from structures.

Time spent planning where water will go and the amount anticipated is something your builder should do, if not have a conversation about getting water well away from any concrete walks, drives, porches, etc.

Time and planning spent here can save a significant amount of money and headache down the road.

If that didn’t happen and you are dealing with settled concrete give us a call, we can help.

Concrete Leveling in Washington

www.SlabjackGeotechnical.com

Curious about concrete leveling and void filling? When we come to your site we are bringing $100,000 worth of concrete leveling equipment, tools and material, along with the experience of our crew having raised thousands of settled concrete slabs.

As we arrive on the job site, the first thing we do is start the equipment and while the material warms, we determine the best location for the injection valves and drill 5/8″ holes at those locations. For very narrow slabs settled on their side, jacks may be used to position the slab prior to the lifting process.

To monitor the lift we use extremely sensitive gauges are used that measure 1000ths of an inch. This is important so we don’t over lift the slab. Those gauges are also critical when void filling where lift is not desired.

Once the lifting and/or void filling is complete the holes are patched with quick-setting mortar, tinted and colored, if necessary, to match your concrete and the job site is swept clean. When we leave, your are free to use your concrete. We use quick set mortar that is hard after about half an hour, but you will want to avoid direct water pressure for a day.

When you hire Slabjack Geotechnical to raise your settled concrete, you can rely on four things; Superior Technology, Superior Polymers, Superior Training, Superior Results.
