Problem: Cracked Slab
Your home may have concrete slab foundation settlement. This is due to moisture content and density of your soils beneath the slab. For any slab crack large or small, contact the professionals at Atlas Piers to help with a solution for your cracked slab foundation repair.
Problems that may be causing your slab cracks:
- settling of loosely compacted soil
- gaps beneath your slab
- extended periods of drought
- too much water pooling around the slab
- wet soil expanding and pushing on the slab
No matter how they got there, slab cracks are dangerous to your home and family and should be taken care of as quickly as possible. Because the slab is the basis of your home, it affects everything above it, meaning that a simple slab crack could be causing sticking doors or windows, cracked walls, or even sloped floors in the rest of the house.
Solution: Pressure Grouting
When there are voids around or under the slab and the slab isn’t big enough to span the void, the slab will in turn, crack, split, and settle into the void. Atlas Piers offers pressure grouting which can fill the voids underneath or around your slab. This slab foundation repair process involves drilling through the concrete and pumping a cement-based grout that is under tremendous pressure to fill the void. This is a much less expensive option than removing the concrete via jackhammer, filling the void, and re-pouring the concrete. This can also be used to lift a sinking slab, so it can possibly resolve two issues at one time. Pressure grouting is often used in Atlanta homes to make slab cracks disappear.
