Pressure Grouting Services for Businesses & Properties in Nashville, TN
Much of the Nashville, Tennessee, area is plagued with soil that is granular and loosely packed. Over time, such soil can shift, settle, and get washed away, causing sinkholes to form and wreak havoc on the foundations of large structures such as office buildings, factories, bridges, and highways. One of the best ways to combat weak soil structures is with a process called pressure grouting, a technique that Engineered Solutions of Georgia has perfected throughout their many years in business.
What Is Pressure Grouting?
Pressure grouting is a specialized ground-engineering technique that’s commonly used to fill sinkholes and other subterranean voids. Pressure grouting is also used to raise sunken concrete slabs back up to a level position and prevent further settling. This process is also sometimes known as compaction grouting, permeation grouting, and mudjacking, but no matter what you call it, it works like this:
- First, a series of strategically placed holes are drilled into the ground or into the surface that needs to be lifted.
- Next, an injection pipe is inserted into each hole and a cement-like grout mixture is pumped in as the pipe is slowly removed.
- This process is repeated until the entire sinkhole or void is filled in, or until the concrete slab has been lifted back up to the desired position.
In addition to pressure grouting, we also provide a similar ground-engineering technique known as a poly-lift system, which uses polyurethane foam instead of a cement-like grout. While pressure grouting remains a more cost-effective solution for large projects, a poly-lift system uses quick-curing, hydrophobic foam to provide you with faster results. To ensure peace of mind in your investment, our pressure grouting applications and poly-lift systems are each covered by a 10-year warranty.
