Shenandoah's work withstood Hurricane Ian
In October of 2021, Shenandoah Construction was contracted by Lee County Department of Transportation to remediate seawall issues on the Sanibel Island Bridge Span A.
Sept. 28, 2022 Ian made landfall in southwest Florida as a Category 4 Hurricane with max winds of 150 mph.
Seawall still standing. The material did its job.
Each Foundation and Slab Lifting Project is Different
Even though each foundation and slab lifting project is different, the outcome with Shenandoah at the helm is always the same. Shenandoah restores structures and properties to a safe, stable, and level condition through soil stabilization. This proven process saves you time and money.
What Causes Foundations to Fail?
Both natural and man-made causes can lead to weak soils beneath structures. The original soil material/composition may not have been packed properly before construction, or nearby drilling or excavation may result in compromised soil quality. Regardless of the cause, weak soils and subsoils can result in foundations failing. Voids can form for various reasons including the extraction of groundwater or the dissolving of limestone. Symptoms of weak soils under commercial, industrial, or residential properties include foundation settlement, cracks in slabs and foundations, heaves and dips in slabs, parking lots and driveways. There can also be evidence of soil subsidence in adjoining and nearby properties.
Soil Subsidence is a Common Problem in Florida
The stability of any Structure or Concrete Slab is based mostly on the soil properties it is built upon. Florida’s sandy, limestone soils and geological conditions can cause voids in soil underneath foundations, concrete slabs, roadways, and structures. Under overbearing weight, the supporting soils will become inadequate to support the structures built upon them. When settlement occurs, it can destroy the value of the property and even render it unsafe. Click Here to Learn More
What are the Benefits of the Shenandoah Foundation & Slab Lifting, and Leveling Process?
Weight Bearing Capacity Restored or Increased
Material Reaches 90% of Strength in 15 Minutes, Assets can be Used Immediately
Precision Pavement Leveling Often up to 1/8” Tolerance with Rapid Polymer Expansion
Use of Small 5/8” Injection Holes, No Deconstruction Reconstruction
Low Pressure Injection of Polymer down to Base and Subbase Soils
One-Time Cost-Effective Method for Long Lasting Restoration
The benefits of the Shenandoah process far outweigh the traditional mudjacking process. Although mudjacking is still used today for traditional foundation & slab lifting/leveling, the materials that are used with mudjacking often require a lengthy installation process and do not stabilize the underlying soil & subsoils as well as our polymer injection process. As a result, mudjacking restorations often have a much shorter life expectancy, which produce much higher costs down the road to resolve recurring problems. Other disadvantages to Mudjacking include the weight of the slurry grout, which can break up with vibration. Slurry grout pumped over distressed bases makes for a short life expectancy. Larger diameter drilling holes are needed, which can further compromise the current structure and mudjacking slurry grout can take up to 7 days to cure.
