Soil Stabilisation Services in Adelaide and Melbourne
Soil stabilisation is essential for building and maintaining infrastructure. We always take the time to emphasise the importance of working from the ground up when taking care of your home or commercial building.
The process of soil stabilisation relates to changing the physical properties of the soil itself with the purpose of improving its strength and durability.
If ground is weak, it means that it will not be able to support the weight of buildings, structures and floors.
If a property is built on weak ground, it may subside and cause expensive and dangerous hazards. Weak Ground can occur across part or over the entirety of foundations.
What Causes Weak Ground?
Weak ground occurs if the earth is unstable or loose – not an ideal foundation for any structure. Causes of weak ground can be:
- Natural: for example issues within the soil or sand
- Artificial: for example nearby drilling, construction work or excavation
What Are The Signs of Weak Ground?
There are a few tell tale signs that your property may be built on weak ground.
- Uneven concrete floors
- Fractured floor tiles
- Cracks in walls around doors, windows and corners
How To Fix Weak Ground
Weak ground should be fixed as swiftly and efficiently as possible to avoid further issues developing around it.
One of the most common, effective and non invasive ways to fix weak ground is by injecting structural resins into the ground which mix with hardeners in the ground then expand to ensure that the soil compacts.
We do this to help increase the load bearing capacity of the ground which will be essential to strengthening your property’s foundations.
We can help advise you on the best methods available to stabilise soil and fix your issues with weak ground.
Depending on your property and the climate, soil type and surrounding area that you live in, we’ll help you to invest in your home or building to avoid further problems developing.
