If you have noticed cracks in your concrete slab in your Kansas City home, it could be the result of changes in the soils beneath the slab which has resulted in foundation settlement. The soil in this area is mostly clay which is an expansive soil that shrinks when it is dry and swells when it is wet. This constant change in the movement of the soil also results in the movement of your slab, causing it to settle and crack. Not only are slab cracks a sign that you may have foundation problems, but the other signs to look for around your home are:
If you have slab cracks or any of the other signs of foundation settlement or failure, contact Pro Foundation Technology. We have the products and experience to get your slab cracks repaired and any other foundation repair that is needed.
If we find that the slab crack is due to foundation settlement, we use our piering system to get your home back to its original level.
We use steel push piers and helical piers for foundation repair. These piers are driven deep into the ground until they reach stable soil and then the entire structure is hydraulically lifted onto these piers to level your foundation to its original state. This will keep your foundation steady for years to come. We also offer new construction piers which are used before the concrete is poured for your new construction so you will never have to worry about foundation settlement in the future.
If your slab crack is not due to foundation failure, we use our crack injection method to seal your slab crack. We use a polyurethane injection method, also referred to as polyjacking to fill the voids beneath your slab and lift the slab back to its level position.
This method of slab repair is done by injecting polyurethane foam into a 5/8″ hole that is drilled through your slab. This polyurethane foam expands 20 times its liquid volume as it moves beneath the slab, filling all voids and lifting the slab and repairing the slab cracks.
All of the products we use for slab crack repair are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in foundation repair and basement waterproofing products in the industry.
