Lifting and Leveling Settling Concrete for a Safer Sidewalk in Longwood, FL

A homeowner in Longwood, FL, recently began to notice a problem with her exterior concrete. Several areas of the sidewalk in front of her house were settling. The homeowner was concerned with these unappealing tripping hazards, and she wanted to address this problem right away. After seeing TV ads for Florida Foundation Authority, she was eager to contact us to see how we could help them. Once she met with one of our inspectors, Joseph Grimsley,  who evaluated the condition of the concrete, the owner was ready for one of our crews to install a state of the art repair solution. Foreman Mike McDonald and his crew used the PolyRenewal System to lift, level and stabilize the problematic concrete slabs. After drilling very small, minimally invasive holes into the concrete, special equipment was used to inject high-density polyurethane underneath the concrete. This material expands under the concrete to fill any voids, and this allows or the exact lifting and leveling of the slabs. PolyRenewal is lightweight, yet very durable. It will not wash out from under the concrete. The material’s quick cure time also allows for normal traffic and weight on the concrete to resume just 15 minutes after installation. Joint sealant also was used on the joints and former cracks for additional protection. The homeowner is pleased this unique repair project was completed to help her create a safer living environment.

Creating a Safer Sidewalk in DeBary, FL

After living in her house for several years, a homeowner in DeBary, FL, noticed several areas of cracking, sinking, and uneven concrete around her property. This included the driveway, sidewalk, and pool deck. It is common for concrete to fail by cracking and sinking. This can happen for a number of reasons, but the most common cause is sinking soil underneath the concrete. This lack of support system results in unsafe and unsightly areas of concrete. This concerned the homeowner, and she wanted to address the problem once and for all. After seeing Florida Foundation Authority’s TV ads, the owner was eager to contact us to learn more about how we could help her. She met with Inspector Joe Travis, who completed a thorough evaluation of the property. Joe then presented the owner with a reliable, state of the art repair solution. Foreman Mike McDonald and his crew used the PolyRenewal System to lift, level and stabilize the problematic concrete. First, very small holes were drilled into the cracking and sinking slabs, and injection ports are placed in these holes. Special equipment was then used to inject high-density polyurethane underneath the slabs. This material expands to fill the voids, and this allows for the exact lifting and leveling of the slabs. While PolyRenewal is lightweight, it is extremely durable. It will not wash out, and its quick cure time allows for normal traffic to resume just 15 minutes after installation. The homeowner was excited this unique repair solution was used on her property to create a safer living environment.

PolyRenewal Repairs a Cracking Patio in Oviedo, FL

Homeowners in Oviedo, FL, called Florida Foundation Authority because there were cracks in their concrete patio, which had grown a bit larger over time. The couple was concerned about tripping hazards, so they wanted to have it addressed as soon as possible. After meeting with one of our inspectors, the owners were eager to have one of our crews install a state-of-the-art repair method. Foreman Mike McDonald and his crew used PolyRenewal, which is an expanding polyurethane foam, to lift and level the sinking concrete and fill the voids underneath the slabs. The concrete is now stable and the homeowners do not need to worry about the concrete sinking or shifting.

Repairing Cracking, Settling Concrete Driveway and Walkway Areas in Sebastian, FL

There's no time to waste when safety is at stake. A homeowner in Sebastian, FL, called Florida Foundation Authority because her driveway and walkway were both cracked and unlevel, and she was concerned that they were unsafe. One of our inspectors visited the home and explained how we could use PolyRenewal to lift the concrete slabs back to their original position. He said we also could use joint sealant to seal the joints and cracks. The homeowner was eager to work with us to complete this work and give her peace of mind. One of our expert crews installed PolyRenewal, which is a polyurethane foam pumped under a sinking slab to fill the empty spaces underneath and lift it up. They also used the joint sealant to make sure no more washout would happen under the slabs and improve the appearance.

Waterproofing a Wet Basement in Orlando, FL

Basements are not that common in Florida, but we do come across one now and then. The reason for their scarceness is the high water table in most of Florida. However, there are some houses that do have basements in Florida. If you have a basement and it's wet or damp, we can help you! A customer in Orlando, FL, called Florida Foundation Authority because he has had issues with a wet basement for a while now. He had to tear out some of his drywall because of water damage. Jim Pierpoint met with the homeowner and told him how we could use the BasementGutter system to permanently keep the basement dry. BasementGutter is a sub-floor drainage system specially designed by the Basement Systems worldwide network. It sits on the concrete footer of the home and a flange against the wall catches water that may pour down the walls. The slots in the drain also catch water from on top of the floor and under it. Our crew, led by Foreman Mike McDonald, installed BasementGutter around the basement by pulling up the concrete around the perimeter, setting the system at an angle, and repouring the concrete over it. They also installed a SafeDri Pro X with a SafeDri battery back up. This is sump pump duo that will collect water that drains from the BasementGutter and pump it out of the home. The customer can now have peace of mind that his basement will stay dry. He will not have to worry about the condition of things he stores in that area of the home, or any mold growth or bad smells.
