Soil Stabilization with Polyurethane Foam
In order to have a strong and stabilized structure, you need to have strong and stabilized soil. Unfortunately, soil can become unstable due to a variety of natural occurrences. From erosion to decomposition, to freeze and thaw cycles - all of these things can cause the soil underneath a structure or road to become unstable.
Unstable Soil Causes Structural Damage
Unstable soil can be dangerous because it allows the concrete above it to settle, sink, and potentially crack. Sealing cracks and performing other DIY concrete repairs may help your issues cosmetically, but they will only come back over time (and maybe even worse). If you have structural issues above-ground, it's important to take care of the main issue below the ground first.
If the soil underneath your structure is unstable, you may have noticed the following problems:
- Uneven/sloping floors
- Tilting chimney
- Cracked foundation
- Doors and windows that won't shut
- Space between trim and floor
- Bumpy, uneven roads/driveways/sidewalks
Whether you are concerned about your personal residence, place of business, or a municipal structure (city bridges, roads, highways), Airlift Concrete Experts can assess the situation and provide you with a custom quote to stabilize the soil conditions with our deep injections of polyurethane foam.
Benefits of Using Polyurethane Foam for Soil Stabilization
Polyurethane foam is a fantastic solution for stabilizing soil underneath any structure. It is quick to install and more affordable than other techniques. It also is environmentally friendly and has no chemicals that will harm the environment. Most beneficial of all, deep polyurethane foam injections are a permanent solution to stabilize soil, and once performed, it will never have to be done again.
Polyurethane foam works to decrease the permeability of the soil while increasing its load-bearing capacity. This will allow it to be able to support structures for a lifetime!
