If you live in Blue Springs, MO, you may experience foundation problems due to the soil conditions. The soil in this area is made up of clay which is known as expansive soil. Depending upon the supply of moisture in the ground, these shrink-swell soils experience changes in the volume of the soil. During periods of high moisture, expansive soils heave and cause the lifting of a structure. During periods of low soil moisture, these soils will collapse and result in foundation settlement.
It is good to know the signs of foundation settlement and failure. Some of these signs include foundation cracks, sloping floors, and bowing walls. If you notice any of these signs, Pro Foundation Technology, Inc. provides solutions to fix the issue.
We have over a decade of experience in foundation repair. We use piering products made by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in the manufacturing of foundation repair and basement waterproofing products in the industry. Helical piers are an excellent choice for foundation repair and stabilization when light structural loads, unstable rock basements or very deep load bearing layers are present.
Steel push piers have a hydraulic manifold lifting system, providing a precise stabilization of the structure. Because the piers are installed and load tested individually using the maximum weight of the structure as the reaction force, there is a high factor of safety.
A wet basement can cause structural damage to your home along with promoting the growth of mold. Water can enter your basement from hydrostatic pressure and storm sewer water backups.
If you are experiencing a wet basement, we can install an interior waterproofing system, exterior waterproofing system, along with a sump pump system.
With the constant changes in the climate throughout the year in Blue Springs, MO and the changes in the moisture content beneath your concrete, your concrete will become uneven and cracked.
We offer polyjacking to repair uneven and cracked cement. This method uses a polyurethane foam that is injected into a drilled 5/8″ hole in the concrete. Polyurethane foam fills the entire void beneath the concrete to level the concrete and seal the cracks.
