Slab Foundation Repair
lab Foundations, sometimes calls slab-on-grade, are concrete pads poured right on the ground and your home is built directly on top of the slab. The slab is usually no more that 4"-8" thick, sometimes with a small wedge (or footing) on the perimeter of the slab.
Many factors can affect your slab foundation's health. Please click here to read about these factors. If you have determined that you have a problem, we can help you determine which perimeter foundation solution is appropriate for your home.
Pressure Grouting is the direct pressure injection of a fluid grout into the ground to fill voids or displace soft soils. Grouting can improve the strength of the ground to support your homes foundation.

Sump Pumps in Slab
Sump pumps are designed to turn on/off when the water level reaches a pre-determined depth.
Installing a sump pump can ensure the soil under your foundation doesn't loose strength or expand and cause cracking.
Helical Piers or Micropiles for Slab Support
Helical Piers are piles that are screwed and anchored into the ground beneath your home. The depth of the pier depends on the suitability of the ground to carry the desired load.
Micropiles are small diameter friction piles. Each pile, usually steel, is drilled into the ground and then "locked" in place, usually with cement grout. Micropiles can be installed quickly in almost every type of soil.
After the piers are installed, brackets are attached to the slab and the pier to provide the required foundation support.
