Commercial Sea Walls
If you have a business along the lake or shoreline, you likely have a sea wall, also known as a break wall, which helps to prevent flooding and deters erosion. Sea walls are commonly made from concrete, which means that the erosive forces from the waves can cause it to deteriorate, crack, break, or fail. Naturally, if such signs of deterioration exist, it is best to deal with them as early as possible to avoid the bigger, more costly problems that wall failure can cause. Traditionally, a damaged sea wall would need to be replaced at great expense to you. However, our Deep Foam Injection process can simply and permanently solve the problem within a single day’s work without the mess and expense of a complete replacement.
Signs Your Sea Wall Is Failing:
Cracks or chipping in your sea wall cap
Leaning seawalls that signal your anchor system has deteriorated and broken
Settled concrete slabs
Soil loss behind the wall, sink holes or voids
Small holes (may look like they were made by a burrowing animal) next to the seawall
The Raising Solutions Advantage
Repairing your with our methods can cost a fraction of the cost of other methods, frequently saving you over 50% of the cost of replacement!
Fix your concrete with minimal downtime and disruption. In most cases, you’ll be able to repair your sea wall within a day's work.
Ripping out and replacing your sea wall can be a messy endeavor, whereas concrete raising requires nearly invisible dime-sized holes.
The polyurethane foam used in our process is strong, resilient, insoluble, and highly resistant to long-term erosion.
Polyurethane foam consists of 39-49% renewable and recycled materials. Plus, it will never leach dangerous chemicals or pollute groundwater.
At Raising Solutions, we use an innovative method called polyjacking and deep foam injection. During this process, we inject polyurethane foam behind the sea wall to displace water and seal any cracks that are allowing water to get behind the wall and erode the soil. The foam brings structural stability back to the wall and prevents water from penetrating the sea wall again.
Our Foundation Stabilization Process
Evaluate & Estimate
If you're concerned about the stability of your foundation, it's important to get a professional evaluation. We will assess the condition of your foundation and recommend the best course of action to take. We provide a free estimate for all of our services, so you can be sure you're getting the best value for your money.
A soil analysis is essential for foundation stabilization. By determining the composition of the soil, we can figure out how deep we need to go in order to stabilize the foundation and level the concrete. The process is relatively simple: we take a sample of the soil and analyze it. This tells us what type of soil we're dealing with and how best to proceed with the stabilization process. In some cases, we may need to excavate and replace the soil; in others, we may be able to use a less invasive technique. In either case, the goal is the same: to provide you with a stable foundation that will last for years to come.
Our field foundation stabilization technicians expertly perform the concrete leveling and deep foamjection process. This process not only restores your structures but actually improves the integrity of your entire structure.
Once your concrete has been properly leveled and stabilized, the next step is to fill in any injection holes with new cement. This is a crucial part of the process, as it helps to ensure that your concrete will be strong and durable. The new cement will bond with the existing concrete, creating a new foundation that is even stronger than before. In addition, filling in the injection holes will help to prevent water from seeping into the concrete and causing damage. After the hole(s) have been filled, the final step is to apply a sealant. This will help to protect your concrete from weathering and wear.
Once your foundation has been stabilized, it is important to make sure that it is of the highest quality. We review each job to verify your satisfaction, and we will answer any questions you may have about the work. Your concrete is now ready for immediate use.
