Pressure Grouting Explained:
It is very common to have voids under your concrete slab or foundation. This can cause cracking or settlement. These voids can happen when the soil underneath the foundation or slab contracts in size, usually due to excess moisture, vibrations in the slab, loads that are more than the slabs can take, or poor compaction during construction. Many people choose to jack-hammer the slab and remove it, and then re-gravel not knowing they have a less expensive option. Atlas Piers has the experts and experience for pressure grouting in Atlanta , and can help you with this much less expensive option. It is usually a half or a third of the cost of the jack-hammer method! We use pressure grouting, which is a method of drilling a hole through the concrete and introduce cement based grout using very high pressure.
The Grouting Process
1.) Once holes are drilled through the slab, injection pipes are driven through voids and soft soils to residual soils. The grout hose is then connected to the pipe to inject materials.
2.) As grout is pumped through the pipe, it permeates the soft soil and fills the void to stabilize the slab. As pressure starts to rise, the pipe is lifted as it builds up the soil.
3.) When completed, the slab is stabilized and its load-bearing capability has increased.
