Epoxy Injection Foundation Repair & Polymer Injection Grouting

Change, when it comes, cracks everything open.

Modern concrete was patented in the 1800s by an English cement maker and a French gardener. However, cement has been in use for more than 2,000 years before that. In Rome, it was called opus caementicium, and it’s the primary material in the Pantheon dome and the grand Colosseum.

More than any building material, concrete has been an instrumental part of residential and commercial development. Industry and commerce depend on the structures we built with concrete. It can last for numerous years, decades even. But even the sturdiest structures are susceptible to degradation.

Professional Injection Grouting Services

As buildings age and settle, stress on structures and surfaces will take its toll. Injection grouting is an economical method of repairing cracks in slabs, concrete structures and surfaces exposed to the elements. Our experts can help you minimize the damage.

What Is Grouting Injection?

One method of injection grouting is the procedure of filling in cracks, gaps, open joints or voids in concrete. Many types of grout can be used in concrete, but epoxy and urethanes are the most common. Essentially, epoxy resin is used as a structural repair to “glue” cracks back together while various urethane type grouts are injected through wall and floor slabs to waterproof the backside of the slab where it contacts the soil or water

Grouting injection is the ideal option for cement due to the following properties:

  • Quick setting
  • Low shrinkage
  • Low viscosity
  • Excellent adhesion
  • Resistant to most chemicals

When Do You Need Grouting Injection Services?

If water is a particular concern for your facility, then urethane grouting is another technique you should consider. It works by cutting off water flow through concrete cracks and joints or filling the gaps between or beneath slabs and within the walls. The water-impermeable grout is injected through a pre-drilled hole.  Once the mixed grout is introduced to water or humidity it hardens/activates and becomes waterproof. It is often used with an epoxy injection to provide waterproofing in large infrastructure projects such as subterranean resource passages and traffic tunnels. 

Polymer injection grouting is often used in roof slabs, drainage-adjacent surfaces (such as walls with an attached drainage pipe), and other surfaces exposed to water or prone to accumulations of resting water. It is also used in tandem with epoxy injections, in cases where pre-existing fractures are present, and elastomeric where there’s no need to add structural support.

Common Injection Grouting Waterproofing Applications

Piers, stanchions and support towers are the most common structures for injection grouting applications. Whether it’s your primary office, manufacturing facility, refinery, parking structure, foundation or other industrial establishment, an epoxy injection can help to stall and even reverse some of the damage incurred by your property.

Before attempting to restore a crack, it’s critical to understand the cause of the damage. Is it caused by movement or settling, excess strain or weight load, or degradation of the core material by water or environmental forces? In some of these cases, technicians will be able to resolve the issue, but in others, an engineer may need to be consulted before proceeding. Engineers will be able to certify the safety, stability and viability of your facilities before further action is taken.

Benefits Of Foundation Epoxy Injection

The strength of a structure is only as good as its foundation. Concrete is a rigid material, but with time, water, wear, tear, and ground action, even the largest concrete structures will begin to crack. Here are the benefits that foundation epoxy injection offers:

  • Non-invasive – Technicians don’t have to excavate the building or structure to complete foundation repair.
  • High-strengthConcrete crack repair through epoxy injection is the most reliable grouting there is. These injections are a permanent solution that can fill in any crack.
  • Waterproof – Water impermeable grout used alongside epoxy enables waterproofing. Aside from water, foundation epoxy injection also keeps out chemicals, insects and other debris.
  • Saves money Injection grouting waterproofing is the most cost-effective solution for foundation repairs.
