What Happens To My Property If My Soil Isn't Properly Stabilized?

Without proper soil stabilization, your Cranberry Township property will be subject to a number of issues that can be very difficult and expensive to deal with down the road. When the soil beneath your roadway or structure isn't properly stabilized prior to construction, this can lead to issues such as sinking, shifting, and the need to repair or rebuild much sooner than originally expected. If you want your structure to stay standing strong for many years to come, this service is necessary for success.

So why does this happen, and why is soil stabilization so important? First things first, the soil shrinks when dry and expands when wet, and certain types of soil inflate and contract much more than others. This process is natural, but it puts any structures built on the surface of the soil at risk. Soil stabilization modifies soil by changing its physical properties to prevent and lessen the extent of any damage caused by this cycle.

What Is Deep Foamjection™?

Deep Foamjection™ is considered to be an upgrade to standard concrete raising. Deep Foamjection™ is the process of installing foam deeper to increase the load bearing capacity of the soils.

  • Repair unstable soils in addition to adjusting slabs back into place
  • Installing a stronger foundation to support slabs and structures that settled
  • Foam follows the path of least resistance and will fill weak areas
  • Fills fissures and ground voids
  • Fills voids holding water. Displaces collected water
  • Increase load bearing capacity of subgrade
  • Permanent repair. Foam never changes shape or absorbs ground water
  • Foam expands into the weak soils binding the soil and making it solid
  • Does not leach chemicals into the ground
  • Strong enough to support slabs, but still allow large roots to penetrate
  • Minimal downtime
  • No heavy equipment or excavation required - non evasive
