Foundation repair that is environmentally friendly works in cooperation with nature to restore a structure to a completely usable condition. Foundations that lose stability as a result of underground soil conditions need repairs that prevent a loss of property, but they must comply with environmental regulations that protect everyone.
Pipe Jack is a leader in the scientific use of repairs to faulty foundations, and we have provided services to the Dallas-Ft. Worth community since 1991. Achievements in developing methods for making the repairs without damaging the environment in any way commend the use of Pipe Jack services for any building that has foundation problems.
Using Compatible Materials
Foundation repair systems that we recommend incorporate the use of materials that are environmentally friendly.
Using pre-cast concrete cylinders that we put in place with a hydraulic power unit to return a structure to a level position, we avoid environmental conflicts. Concrete is made from naturally occurring materials that include limestone, one of the most common minerals in the ground today.
Components used in concrete are easily accessible, and the supply of material is extensive. Established local suppliers provide adequate materials, reducing the need for transportation and fuel costs. Concrete has the capacity to strengthen over time, getting stronger with the passage of time.
• mud jack
Sand and concrete are materials that blend naturally into existing soils to lift slabs that have settled. We drill holes in the slab and pump in a quantity of the mix, a process that allows us to reposition a slab into its proper position. An advantage of mud jacking is that floors typically return to their original level when the process is completed.
• steel pier
Solid support is provided by our steel pier system that is highly effective in stabilizing structures. Damage that results from unstable soils can cause a foundation to sink, requiring an alternative source of support. Construction defects, sink holes, shrinking soils and other conditions can lead to foundation problems that are correctable with our steel pier system.
The Steel Recycling Institute reports that more steel is recycled each year in the United States than the combined total of aluminum, plastic, glass and paper. Steel manufacturers use steel scrap in the production of new steel products to conserve energy and natural resources, making the use of steel an important way to protect the environment.
At Power Jack, all of our foundation repair systems are compatible with the environment. Our commitment to our customers is to provide the highest quality products and excellence in service, and we back it up with a transferable, lifetime warranty on structures that we repair.
