Voids Under Concrete in Kansas City and St. Louis

gpr and voids under concrete in kansas cityThe concrete in the St. Louis and Kansas City area can experience problems due to the changing moisture content in the soil beneath the concrete. When this expansive soil gets too wet, it heaves and when it becomes too dry, it shrinks. These constant changes leaves voids beneath the concrete around your St. Louis, Kansas City, MO and surrounding area homes and businesses. This causes the concrete to crack and settle into the voids.

The professionals at Polyjacking.com, the concrete leveling division of Pro Foundation Technology, use Ground Penetrating Radar to detect underground voids. It is fast, accurate and inexpensive. GPR uses a high-frequency radar antenna and advanced signal software to accurately locate the voids underneath the concrete. GPR also detects embedded utilities, conduit, pvc, rebar and tension cables. This allows for an accurate detection as to where the voids are. GPR is less costly than x-ray detection.

GPR units are portable and provide an instant location. When the GPR accurately detects these voids, then the experts can start the repair process and get the voids filled and the concrete level and stabilized.

Void Repair in Kansas City and St. Louis

  1. Drilling a small 5/8" hole in the affected concrete
  2. The polyurethane foam is injected into the hole into the void beneath the concrete. This polyurethane foam expands to completely fill the void
