It’s time to stop expecting regular troubles after a rainy autumn or snowy winter…

Cracks on walls and uneven floors are often symptoms of a problem. Many structural problems are related to unstable ground conditions or subsidence. To fix these problems, it is important to understand not only the visible effects on the building or structure, but also what is happening in the soils themselves. Different soil types create different problems and require different solutions. Having an expert on hand who knows how to behave and what to do can help ensure that when you solve one problem, you don’t cause another.
The wrong understanding can lead to disastrous results. As an example, one residential building suffered damage after a trench dug under the floor to fix a leaking pipe (the pipe replacement technique involved opening up the floor) was backfilled with sand. The house was built on a heaving (swelling) clay base. The sand-filled trench created a channel that diverted groundwater under the house, saturating the clay and, as a heaving effect, unevenly lifting different parts of the building. As a result, the repair of the pipe caused much more significant damage to the building than the burst pipe, because the type of foundation soils was not taken into account when choosing a solution.

What does the problem with the foundation look like?

The volume of heaving clay varies depending on the moisture level. It (soil) swells when wet (or frozen) and shrinks when dry. In dry areas, visible cracks appear in the ground as it contracts and most people are familiar with sticky, slippery wet clay soils that get stuck on your boots. Structural problems often arise when there are different moisture levels in the soils below, causing settling in drier areas, or rising in wetter areas.

If you have reached this block, then you care about the future of your property. We fully support you and offer to take the first step towards preserving your peace of mind and the object that is prone to destruction. In order to avoid the risks of making a hasty or ill-calculated decision, the logical step would be to conduct the minimum necessary inspection of your building for reasonable money. Then, based on the data on the actual current scale of the problem, make a decision in which of the three directions to move:
  • 01 Continue to monitor the dynamics of destruction with the help of professional tools, defining the "point of no return"
  • 02 Develop a draft solution taking into account constructive, financial and "life" constraints and implement it
  • 03 Apply for an alternative solution based on the conducted survey to third parties

LOSS OF THE BASE OF ITS BEARING PROPERTIES CAN BE CAUSED BY THE FOLLOWING FACTORS:

  • Not properly compacted base
  • Technogenic breakdowns and accidents of engineering communications
  • Regular fluctuations in moisture and temperature in the soil
  • Excavation or piling works nearby
  • Regular exposure to vibrations
  • Organic processes in soils
  • The presence of dense or close planting of trees
  • Seismic activity

QUESTIONS TO BE ANSWERED BY GEORESIN:

  • What happens to the building or structure in general?
  • What caused the cracks or elimination of structures?
  • Does it make sense to expect improvements or changes and what are they?
  • Is it possible to do with cosmetic repairs and for how long?
  • What will happen if nothing is done and in what time frame?
  • Will it help and what specific "store-bought or DIY" solutions will help?
  • Will the "familiar foreman" be able to solve the issue?
  • Is it possible and how to slow down or stop the process of destruction?
  • Is it possible to return everything as it was? What are the options?
  • When is it better and cheaper to start solving? Is it possible not to start right away?
  • How much does it cost to solve the issue and what are the conditions of implementation?
  • What can be done for X UAH?
