The Pressure Grouting process starts with assessing the areas that require stabilizing and/or lifting. Once the problem areas are determined we strategically core a series of 2" holes in the concrete, directly over any voids or sunken areas. A grout slurry consisting of portland cement and fly ash is then mixed and pumped into these locations, filling the voids and raising the concrete with as little as 5 psi line pressure. In order for this procedure to work effectively, a moderate level of structural integrity is necessary in the existing concrete slab. Even if there are full cracks through the slab it is still possible to achieve the desired results due to the experience and control our crews have over the line pressure and slurry thickness.
Pressure Grouting is a fairly quick procedure, taking as little as one day for small projects. In many instances we install Compaction Grout Columns in the same holes used in the Slabjacking process, to add additional support and to reduce the concerns of recurring settlement. This process consists of installing a grout tube to a predetermined depth at each grouting location, previously cored for Slabjacking process. Once in place, the grout slurry is pumped through the tube, into the soils under high pressure. As the pumping takes place the grout tube is slowly withdrawn from the soil. The grout displaces, compacts and solidifies the surrounding soil thus forming a compaction grout column or piling.
