Concrete Repair

Polyjacking StepsSinking concrete slabs and cracks in the floors or walls necessitate professional concrete repair. We have a team of concrete experts who will come to your home or business to inspect the problem. They will then be able to tell you how much damage has already been done, and they will also be able to address any questions or concerns that you may have about the repair process that we use to fix cracks or sinking/settling slabs.

For settlement issues, we make use of a polyurethane foam material through a process known as polyjacking. This is unlike mudjacking which makes use of a mud cement slurry. Also, with mudjacking, large holes must be drilled out of the damaged concrete slab. These holes can be difficult to patch over to match them with the rest of the surface. With polyjacking, only a few tiny holes are needed on the surface. The polyurethane foam is inserted into the holes and it's able to fill up the void beneath the surface. It cures within 15 minutes, and it's an easy and cost-effective way to fix damaged concrete when compared to total replacement.

If you have problems with your concrete flooring, we can fill in and seal cracks, and we can also apply special products for protection and secondary containment. These materials will be able to protect the surface of the floor from extreme weather conditions that could eventually lead to damage to its surface.

To fix cracks, we make use of structural crack injection. This will involve using special polyurethane resins. The resin is injected into the crack and it fills and seals it off permanently. A sealed crack means that you don't need to worry about water leaks or additional damage in the future to the material's surface.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Wall CrackWhen it comes to foundation repair in Jackson, we can provide you with a variety of solutions to fix bowing walls, settling buildings, and wall or floor cracks. If you notice any of the following signs of foundation failure, it is recommended that you get in touch with us immediately for an inspection and an estimate:

  • Sinking on one or more sides of the building
  • Interior or exterior cracks form
  • Certain areas on the first floor feel like they are un-level or sagging in spots
  • Windows and doors don't open or close like they used to
  • Walls are leaning into the basement
  • Chimney is pulling away from the home
  • Cracks appear along window or door frames, or on ceilings

If you notice a wall leaning into your basement, this is known as a sump pumps, and it is caused from too much hydrostatic pressure being applied to the foundation wall from the soil surrounding the building. To fix this problem, we can install helical wall anchors which will be able to reduce the hydrostatic pressure and help to stabilize and strengthen the wall.

If you have noticed that there are several sides of your building sinking into the soil, this is known as foundation settlement. It's a common structural problem that is caused from a variety of factors, including a wet season which has made the earth too soggy to support the weight of the structure above it. To fix the problem, we have a variety of steel piers we can install based on the damage that's been done, and the cause of the problem. We can install helical piers, new construction piers, helical tiebacks, and we also have wall anchors available.

Basement Waterproofing

Moisture in the basement can cause a lot of problems. It can lead to dangerous mold growth, and it can also cause wooden materials, such as support beams and floor joists to rot. This will cause problems for the structural integrity of your building, and it can lead to a lot of expensive damage. At Rigidize Foundation Technologies, we offer a variety of basement waterproofing systems, including interior and exterior waterproofing products. We will come to your home for an inspection, and we will be able to pinpoint the cause of the moisture. Then, we will be able to come up with a plan of action for putting a stop to the seepage issues.

On the inside of your location, we can install drainage systems, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and more. On the outside of your home, we can install French drains, exterior waterproofing membranes, and other waterproofing products and drain systems to help keep moisture away.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

When you have a crawl space under your home or business, you need to get it sealed off so that moisture and excessive humidity can't get inside where it will cause problems. We suggest having crawl space encapsulation work done. This involves the installation of vapor barriers, floor liners, sump pumps and battery backups, and dehumidifiers. These products working in conjunction with one another will be able to keep this space dry and healthy like it should be.
