Common causes of infrastructure soil base, roadway, concrete slab, and bridge failures:
Both natural and man-made factors can lead to weak soils beneath structures. The original soil material/composition may not have been packed properly before construction, or nearby drilling, trenching, excavation, or heavy load bearing use of roadways and railroads and the resulting vibrations, may compromise soil quality. Regardless of the cause, weak soils and subsoils result in sink holes or depressions (subsidence). These problems are generally caused by the extraction of groundwater, the dissolving of limestone, or the need to displace the water. All of which leads to the formation of voids in the base and subbase soil beneath the structure. Symptoms of weak soils under structures include:
- Concrete Slab Settlement
- Cracks in Slabs, Roadways, 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 Frequent 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, structures, railroads, and more. 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 assets and property and even render it unsafe. Learn More Here >
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.
