Reliable Sinkhole Remediation Services for Atlanta, GA, Businesses
Sinkholes can spell disaster for structures both large and small, posing catastrophic property damage and threatening the lives of all who frequent the area. Unfortunately, much of the soil in the Atlanta, Georgia, area is loosely packed and granular, making it susceptible to sinkhole formation. If you’ve discovered a small depression on your property or have noticed that your building’s foundation is beginning to sink, turn to the experts at Engineered Solutions of Georgia for swift and reliable sinkhole remediation services.
What Are Sinkholes?
Sinkholes are underground voids that form from the erosion of subterranean sediment. Sinkholes typically form from the bottom up, as rainwater and other runoff eat away at the granular, loosely packed soil structures that sit atop the bedrock. This void grows until the soil surface can no longer support the load it carries—or even its own weight—at which point the soil surface caves in. What makes sinkholes so dangerous is that, as they form out of sight, the ground above them usually appears normal until the moment of collapse.
How to Repair a Sinkhole
Engineered Solutions of Georgia has completed countless sinkhole remediation projects for businesses and commercial properties throughout Atlanta and the surrounding areas. We offer a number of reliable sinkhole remediation services, as the method of repair used largely depends on the depth and diameter of the sinkhole as well as where it is located. Two of the most common methods of sinkhole remediation we use are underpinning and compaction grouting. However, in some instances, we may even combine a few different techniques to adequately repair and reinforce the ground surface.
