A homeowner in John’s Creek, GA recently reached out to Ground Consolidation Services after noticing a significant soil void under his front porch stoop. This is a common issue we see throughout the residential market across Georgia, usually as a result of poor drainage, grading, or a combination of both.
A typical way of tackling ongoing water-induced erosion is removing and replacing the stoop entirely, but this is incredibly costly and requires pulling out a perfectly well-built structure in the front of your home.
GCS, fortunately, offers a cheaper and wiser alternative. The homeowner called in GCS, and once on site, the crew recommended using Alchemy-Spetec’s AP Lift 430 high-density polyurethane foam to fill the void. We quickly drove injection pipes into the deepest part of the soil and filled the entire void with AP Lift 430. This expanding structural foam is known for compacting the surrounding soil and creating a solid, impermeable mass that will support the stoop for many years to come.
The resident was thrilled that GCS completed the repair in 1 hour, preventing not only a stoop collapse, but also a complete replacement!
