Filling Voids Under Slabs with Polyurethane

Silent Threat

Voids underneath slabs are a silent threat.  As you can see in the photo included with this blog post, soil can erode underneath a slab to the point where significant gaps occur.  If the void is visible, like the one in the picture, property owners and managers will become aware of it pretty quickly.  If the void happens to be at the center of the slab, or underneath an inside slab, it may not be so easy to notice.

Void Detection

Ground Consolidation Services offers void detection with the Deep Look™ ground penetrating radar system.  We can provide images of the area beneath your slabs to remove all uncertainty and take the guesswork out of the diagnostic process.  A crystal clear understanding of the problem provides the best foundation for accurate and lasting repairs.

Void Repair

Dangerous voids can be filled with high-strength polyurethane foam (and then the slab can be lifted if needed).  Ground Consolidation Services lifts slabs, stabilizes soil, and fills voids with the most efficient and durable polyurethane on the market.

Leveling Concrete Walkways in Parks and Recreation Areas

If you manage a park or recreation area, you should understand the threat posed by sunken concrete walkway slabs.  As this excerpt from our blog post Concrete Leveling to Prevent Trip Hazards & Litigation Risks states…

Concrete slabs sink for a variety of reasons.  The result is an eyesore and possibly a trip hazard that could – in a worst case scenario – result in a serious injury, death, and/or a lawsuit.  Lifting slabs with polyurethane foam is safe, fast, and economical. 

Property managers should learn how to deal with these liability issues NOW with the latest concrete repair techniques and preventative measures.  Read more…

Ground Consolidation Services levels concrete, repairs unstable soil, and fills dangerous voids with efficient, durable high-strength polyurethane resin. GCS also offers the Deep Look GPR system to reveal the full extent of sub-surface problems endangering your slab or structure.

Concrete Lifting to Prevent Trip Hazards in Neighborhood Pools

If you own or operate a neighborhood pool, it is critical that you understand the risks associated with sunken pool deck slabs.

This past Spring, we published the blog article Eliminate Pool Deck Trip Hazards Before the Summer containing the following essential info on this issue…

There are a couple very common causes for the soil washout that creates the environment for a sinking pool deck slab:

  1. Cracks in the pool structure leaking water into and soil and washing it out.
  2. Loose back-fill on sloping properties.

The first cause is pretty self explanatory.  The second cause may need a little elaboration. Basically, if a pool is built on sloping property, the construction team will back-fill soil onto the side of the pool that needs it. If this soil is not compacted properly, it can start to washout over time.

Regardless of the cause, soil washout removes support from the pool deck slab and creates the condition for sinking.

As we explained in this two-part blog series…

Concrete Leveling to Prevent Trip Hazards & Litigation Risks – Part 1

Concrete Leveling to Prevent Trip Hazards & Litigation Risks – Part 2

…tripping hazards can be extremely costly, both from a legal perspective and more importantly from the perspective of basic human safety.

Ground Consolidation Services can test your pool deck for underlying soil washout (even before your slab sinks), fill the voids and lift the slabs if needed.

After your soil is repaired, you will want to get any cracks sealed that may be leaking water into soil and washing it out in order to prevent future trip hazards

Commercial Slab Repair Overview

Lake Oconee and Robin Lake at Callaway Gardens are two of the most significant bodies of water in close proximity to the greater Atlanta area. Do you own or manage property on either of these lakes? If you have a seawall on your property, you may want to check for the following:

  • Settled soil near the wall (a sign of water leaking through the wall and eroding the soil on the land side).
  • Soil deposits near the seams on the water side of the wall (a sign of water leaks bringing soil through the seams into the lake).
  • Visible rust colored cracks or stains in the wall (a sign of water leaking through cracks in the wall and rusting the rebar inside).

These could all be indications that your seawall is leaking and in need of repair.  Polyurethane seawall repair is less expensive and more efficient than tearing out the wall and replacing it completely.

At GCS we use Alchemy-Spetec’s AP Fill 700 high-strength polyurethane foam on our seawall repair jobs.

Proven Strength

Impermeable to water once in place, this foam decreases the likelihood of future erosion versus refilling the void with soil or other material.

Originally developed over 30 years ago, and continuously improved since, this technology has one of the longest histories of success in the field among repair uses of polyurethane foams.

Environmentally Safe

AP Fill 700 has been approved for contact with drinking water (NSF 61-5) by Truesdail Laboratories. While no one will likely be drinking out of the lake water, this extra level of precaution means that the cured resin has no adverse effect on water quality.

Efficient Installation

Results are immediately clear due to the visible exiting of water when the foam is injected.  The foam rapidly sets in less than 10 minutes.  No heavy equipment is needed, as the foam is simply injected through pipes directly into voids and loose soil using a small single component pump.

Slab Lifting to Prevent Trip Hazards in Office Parks

Do you own or manage an office park with extensive concrete walkways?  Sunken slabs create trip hazards that pose a serious threat to pedestrian safety.  We’ve written about this issue in a variety of contexts already.  As this excerpt from our blog post Concrete Leveling to Prevent Trip Hazards & Litigation Risks states…

Commercial Slab Repair Overview

“Are sinking slabs or structures putting your commercial property at risk? Unlevel concrete parking lots, walkways, showroom floors, factory floors, warehouses, loading docks and more can adversely affect your property value and increase the chance of injury and costly litigation.”

– From our blog post Concrete Leveling for Commercial Properties.

GCS uses the Deep Look GPR system to reveal the full extent of soil issues causing your slab or structure to sink.
Sunken slabs or structures create trip hazards, liability risks and are often a sign of further damage to come if the problem is left unaddressed. Fortunately, they can be leveled with high strength polyurethane resin. In optimal conditions, slabs and structures can often be lifted to within 1/8” of their original level. Polyurethane slab lifting is much more efficient and a lot less expensive than demolishing and replacing the slab or structure.
