Many of our foundation repair customers in Tulsa need interior slab repairs, in conjunction with the exterior piers, to restore their foundation.
- Helical Piers
Helical piers are used most often by Edens Structural for re-leveling concrete slabs.
A specially built machine, with a high torque rating is used to drill helicals into the ground. First, our crews cores one 6” hole through the slab and then drills the helical in. Next, the lift assembly is attached and the lifting process begins. Whether one pier or 100, a Stanley zip level checks the levelness of the floor before and during the lift. After lifting and leveling is complete, the holes are filled with concrete. Two plumbing pressure tests are included in our price – one run before and one after the lift, to ensure there are no leaks caused by installation or the lifting process.
- Drilled Piers
Drilled piers may be needed to drill through several layers of rock. The pipe can then be put into the hole and the same process will continue as for the helical installation for foundation repair.
- Slab Removal and Replacement
Slab removal and replacement is an option if the slab has been broken beyond repair. While not a frequent solution, Edens is equipped to handle this type of repair. The damaged portion of slab will be removed. The soil will be re-graded and compacted. A 4ml vapor barrier will be installed, followed by installing ½” rebar as required. The slab can then be re-poured and leveled for proper foundation repair.
- Rebar Stitching and Epoxy
This method of repair is one of the most effective means of repairing large cracks in the slab. Slots are cut perpendicular to the crack and a piece of rebar is then installed and epoxied into the slot.
- Floor Leveling Underlayment
Floor leveling underlayment can be installed to help level certain areas of the slab that may be un-level. This ensures proper foundation repair.
Edens High Density Polyurethane Lifting Foam is an efficient, cost-effective way to elevate your slab with minimal disturbance to your home or your schedule. The foam is applied through small, 5/8 inch holes in your slab that can often be made without the hassle of tearing up carpet or moving heavy furniture.
