Injection Grouting Techniques Employed to Sturdy Soils in the Atlanta, GA, Area
As many commercial property owners in the Atlanta area likely know, the ground soils are weak and loosely packed. This can cause sudden shifts in the soil, which can lead to foundation settlement and subsequent foundation wall cracks and other problems. These are not just problems that may require extensive repairs, they will almost certainly be expensive too. In order to avoid these issues and other foundation damage, consider the injection grouting services offered by the geotechnical experts at Engineered Solutions.
Our Injection Grouting Services
There are many types of injection grouting, but two of the most popular we offer are permeation grouting and pressure (compaction grouting). Both services serve generally the same purpose, but there are slight differences between the two options:
- Permeation grouting – We inject a grout mixture into accessible pores in the soil to stiffen the ground, strengthen surrounding soils, and reduce permeability. This allows foundations to be installed on more sturdy ground, with less risk of complication.
- Compaction grouting – Unlike the grout used in permeation grouting, compaction grouting utilizes a stiff mortar or paste. This is also injected into the ground to displace loose soils and compact the area to improve soil integrity for building.
