Williamsburg, Virginia (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
Concrete Jack has launched a helical and push pier installation division for deep foundation repair for commercial, residential and industrial clients. As factory-trained installers of Earth Contact Products’s line of foundation underpinning systems, Concrete Jack now offers deep foundation repair in addition to shallow foundation repairs, such as foam injection, polyurethane concrete raising, and chemical grouting.
“We see lots of projects where clients would be best served by a combination of shallow and deep foundation repair,” says Clayton Perry, Concrete Jack’s Business Development Manager. “By offering piering repairs, we can now provide turn-key foundation repair services to more customers.” Typical repairs for deep foundation repair include stabilizing and lifting cracked and settled exterior walls and other structural elements of residential and commercial properties. Typical repairs for shallow foundation repair such as foam jacking include lifting non-structural and structural components of buildings.
Customers will benefit because often different parts of a building should be repaired differently; slab floors are best repaired with shallow repairs such as foam jacking, whereas structural walls are best repaired using deep methods.
“Deep foundation repair transfers the weight of the structure to an underlying layer of the earth, which may be dozens of feet below the surface,” explains Project Manager Kevin Roberts. “Shallow repairs transfer the weight of structure to the ground immediately under the structure, and may involve chemically modifying the soil under the structure to make it stronger.”
Concrete Jack has performed thousands of shallow foundation repair projects from Pennsylvania to North Carolina. These projects range from lifting and leveling sidewalks to stabilizing interstate highways and industrial floors. Concrete Jack is based in Williamsburg, Virginia, and serves the entire Mid-Atlantic region.
