Undetected Voids Can Lead to Catastrophic Slab Failure

See the photo included in today’s blog graphic? Take a close look. You do not want this happening to your slab. Injury and litigation risks are a very real possibility for property owners who neglect inspection of the soil beneath their slabs. We’ve mentioned this before in previous blog posts, but it’s worth repeating: Undetected voids are a silent threat that can cause slabs and structures to sink or collapse without warning. Even if your slabs are level, you may still want to get the soil underneath checked out. Unstable soil eventually causes structural cracking, cave-ins, and sinkholes. Fortunately, soil can be stabilized, and water infiltration stopped with polyurethane resins. Once the soil has been consolidated and strengthened, any slabs or structures resting on it are safe and sound. GCS can protect your property and assets from these hidden threats with ground penetrating radar inspections and durable, high strength void fill foam. The Deep Look wireless ground penetrating radar system uses a patent pending unique triple frequency antenna design to create the most accurate image possible of the area beneath your valuable structures.  Conventional single frequency antenna GPR systems cannot deliver the same level of clarity.  Ground Consolidation Services will use the Deep Look GPR to take 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, durable and lasting repairs.
