Foundation Repair, Drainage, Concrete Repair and Waterproofing Services

Concrete Work

Concrete is one of the most durable man-made materials, but it does have its weaknesses. Reactions with common elements, exposure to harsh weather, and poor construction can all lead to concrete failure. Poor soils, voids, tree roots, and excess moisture are just a few other culprits. Deterioration of concrete is not inevitable. When it does occur it is often caused by a failure on the job site to follow basic concreting practices, such as mix design proper placing, consolidation, finishing, and curing. Overlooking any of the requirements can cause failure in the overall finished product. The experts at Arrow Foundation Repair have a solution for you.

Mudjacking

Mudjacking

Arrow Foundation Repair will lift, level and stabilize failed or sunken concrete. A mixture of concrete is injected beneath the failed area and fills the void, lifting and aligning the concrete and reduces the potential of it moving again. Arrow Foundation Repair uses a concrete slurry for all mudjacking. No sand or soils are used. Mudjacking can save substantial amounts of money for home and business owners, compared to removing and replacing concrete slabs and stairs that have become dangerous hazards.

Our experts produce concrete mix at your work site, to save you money and produce little to no waste. It also provides an environmentally-conscience benefit as compared to a complete concrete replacement.

Porches & Steps

Concrete slabs often settle because the underlying soil washes away or consolidates. In addition to sinking slabs, hidden voids under front porches or steps can accumulate water and create a variety of problems, including water in your basement, cracked foundation walls, habitats for vermin and moist soil where termites nest.

Settlement of concrete slabs, including basement slabs, porches, walkways, driveways, etc., can cause the slab to crack and create uneven surfaces. Not only is this unsightly, but it could be dangerous if you trip on it and could possibly even threaten the solid foundation of your home or business. Our Arrow Foundations Repair technician will visit your home or business, provide an on-site evaluation, and make a recommendation as to which method is best suited to repair your structure.

Epoxy & Polyurethane Injection

Walking downstairs to notice that you have water seeping in through a crack in your wall is an awful feeling. Fear not though, as it’s not the end of the world. Many cracks can be injected and sealed with a Polyurethane foam. Crack injection is a fast repair and the cost is minimal. The cost is usually only a few hundred dollars depending on the size and length of the crack.

Injecting a crack in your basement wall

1. First, you will apply the ports over the crack, it is how the polyurethane is transferred into the crack. They are placed approximately every 10 inches starting at the bottom of the crack working your way up.
2. Next, you will apply a “surface seal” to the wall. Most “surface seals” or “epoxy pastes” will set up in 30 minutes (hence the quick repair time).
3. Once that has set up and cured, you will then injection the polyurethane into the wall. Starting at the lowest port on the crack and leaving all ports open, you will inject the polyurethane until it starts oozing out of the port above it. Once it starts oozing out, plug the port you are on and move up to the next one.
4. Repeat this process until you have fully filled your crack.
5. After the polyurethane has set up for around 24-48 hours you can knock off the ports with a hammer.

When NOT to use crack injection

There are two very import notes you must know. NEVER let someone tell you that it is a promising idea to inject your crack if you have a block wall. Because the blocks are hollow there is no way to ensure that the polyurethane will set up where it needs to be. There are other ways to seal cracks if you have a block wall, and unfortunately the best way is the most expensive way, and that is from the outside of the foundation.

Epoxy Injection vs. Polyurethane Foam Injection

The second note is that, unless you are stabilizing your foundation with piers, do not use a structural epoxy resin to inject the crack with. A structural epoxy resin is what it sounds like, it is used in conjunction with structural repairs. It is a brittle epoxy designed not to shift or move. A polyurethane on the other hand will set up with a foam like property. This is designed to bend and move with the crack. If your house starts to settle a little more after you inject the wall, the foam will shift with the crack preventing unwanted water from intruding into your home.
