Concrete Slab Repair
Cracks in cement floors can often times be indicators of foundation settlement and sinking.
However, sometimes the problem is not the foundation, but that the concrete floor itself is settling.
Helitech uses the same Helical technology to stabilize and lift your foundation back into place, that we do for concrete slabs.
Slab pier process
First, we core small holes into the concrete slab at proper intervals. The Helical anchor is then driven into the soil until the required depth is met. The main difference when using slab piers is the bracket that attaches to your home, or in this instance to the concrete slab.
Once the Helical anchor is driven deep into the stable soil, a steel bracket is inserted into the cored hole, below the slab. The weight of the concrete slab is then transferred onto the Helical piers and the concrete floor can be raised back to its original position.
Often times, we will insert a grout combination (similar to that of mudjacking) below the slab to fill the void and help prevent further settling and movement.
