Robert B. of Ormond Beach, Florida called LRE Foundation Repair after growing concerned about large cracks forming in his pool deck. LRE completed an inspection of the property only to discover large voids had formed underground where armadillos had previously dug their dens. LRE formulated a plan to remedy the unstable soil situation by using PolyLevel injection around the pool deck. PolyLevel is an environmentally safe, expanding polymer material that is injected through small holes drilled in the concrete deck. As the material flows through loose soils, it expands on contact filling voids and creating stable ground. In addition, PolyLevel is able to lift concrete back level again, closing the cracks that concerned this homeowner. Once the project was complete, the homeowner was thrilled that his pool deck was crack-free and level once more.
Aran and Leann C. were growing tired of having to patch and paint exterior wall cracks of their Gainesville, Florida home only to have them reopen again. They wanted the problem fixed for good so they could finally repaint their house for the last time. They called LRE Foundation Repair to assess the situation and fix the underlying problem. Upon inspection, LRE determined that the expansive clay soils under the home were creating too much movement and ultimately settlement damage, so LRE designed a solution using helical pier installation. These helical piers are made of galvanized steel with plates welded to them that help to pull the pier into the soil during installation, providing anchoring strength as the weight of the foundation is transferred onto the pier. Once all piers are in place, they can be hydraulically adjusted to lift a foundation and close large cracks like on this home, for good. Once this project was complete, these homeowners were more than pleased to see the cracks closed and their home finally permanently stabilized.
A homeowner located in Daytona Beach recently inherited this home and noticed interior and exterior cracks throughout the home. The Homeowner's goal was to repair the foundation so they can keep it in the family, or sell the home later down the line. LRE installed 7 Helical piers around the perimeter of the home and injected 6 points of chemical grout to permanently stabilize the foundation of this home for years to come.
David W. had noticed the ground was soft in some areas around his Port Orange, Florida home and cracks were forming on his front porch. When he noticed the cracks suddenly growing larger, and concrete sinking, he knew there was a problem and called LRE Foundation Repair right away. Upon inspection, LRE determined that animal borings, more than likely from armadillos, had significantly compromised the soils under his porch and used a system called PolyLevel injection to strengthen and stabilize the area. PolyLevel is a highly expandable foam material injected through very small drill holes in the concrete. As the material flows and mixes with the soil, it expands to fill all voids and starts to lift the concrete back into place. After this porch was treated, this homeowner could rest easy knowing his porch was stabilized and even, leaving only the Florida pests to deal with.
A homeowner located in Archer, FL was looking to add an addition to their home. Before the homeowner could start this project they were needing to replace the rotting rim joist and improve the stabilization of this area of the home. LRE was able to successfully remove and replace the rotted rim joist so this homeowner can now safely move forward with the addition to their home.
