The Benefits of Compaction Grouting

Compaction grouting, also called pressure grouting or low mobility grouting, is a form of soil stabilization that's done by pumping grout into the ground through threaded steel casings under high pressure. If you’re noticing structural damages in your home or commercial building, it may be time to consider hiring our Tampa-based compaction grouting services team. In order to prevent the damage from worsening, it is best to get the issue fixed as soon as possible. Through the compaction grouting process, our team can stabilize your soil and repair sinkholes. When the ground around your home is more dense, it is less likely for your foundation to incur problems. Our compaction grouting services can also play a major role in preventing future sinkholes from forming. With our compaction grouting services in Tampa and the surrounding areas, you can make sure that your soil is stable now, saving you a lot of time and money in the long run. Compaction grouting is also a great alternative to traditional soil replacement methods because it does not require much space to complete and can be successfully accomplished underneath preexisting buildings. Additionally, with our method of low mobility compaction grouting, our Tampa-based soil stabilization contractors do not need direct access to the foundation of your home. 

Slurry Grouting

Compaction grouting is often used in combination with slurry grouting. The former is typically stopped above depths of 20 feet in order to avoid foundation heaving and damaging the structure.

Slurry grouting, injected at lower pressures, is then used to stabilize the remaining soil strata.

Repairing Sinkholes

Sinkholes are the last thing we want as Floridians, but they’re prevalent.

Sinkholes can leave serious damage to our homes and building structures. Compaction grouting can stabilize the ground if structures have been damaged by sinkholes.

Compaction grouting is also used to stabilize the soil and prevent structures from shifting or settling over time, especially in areas prone to sinkhole activity.

The Compaction Grouting Process

The process of compaction grouting is quick and simple. We use quality equipment and injection tools to ensure that we reach the optimal depth for inserting grout. Our Tampa-based soil stabilization contractors perform these injections in multiple areas around the site, so that the grout will be evenly distributed across the ground. After each injection, a bulb of grout is formed. After that, the bulb expands, distributing the rest of the grout and stabilizing the soil around it.
