Repairing the foundation of buildings is a necessary measure, because even a well-designed foundation can be destroyed. The deterioration of the foundation can be caused by aggressive environmental influences, such as groundwater, weather conditions, breakthrough of underground utilities or amortized wear of materials. Also, when designing a building, mistakes could be made that lead to deterioration of the foundation, the formation of cracks and decline of buildings.
The reconstruction of the foundation of the structure ensures the operational reliability and durability of the building, extending its lifecycle beyond the standard terms of operation established during the design. The reasons for which the reconstruction of the foundation is worthwhile may be not only obvious signs of destruction, but also an increase in load, for example, an increase in the number of floors in a building, redevelopment or subsidence.
Overhaul of the foundation is a set of works, which may include a change in the design features, its sizes and dimensions. During the overhaul of the foundation, the foundation or its individual parts are fully strengthened as the first and main step in solving the problems of repair or reconstruction.
To carry out the restoration of the bearing capacity of the building foundation in Russia, at any time of the year and under any weather conditions, you can resort to the injection of geopolymers from the GeoResin company. With their help, it is possible to (quickly) strengthen the bearing capacity of soils and restore sagging structures to the required level, preventing the appearance of cracks in the walls of the building, as well as stop their encrease by special technology of flexible reinforcement. The method consists in introducing multicomponent geopolymer resins into the soil. They instantly fill the voids, create a vertically directed pressure that stabilizes and strengthens the foundation. Thanks to this technology, many private homes and large industrial buildings were able to maintain integrity, without large-scale repairs and downtime with resettlement. With its help, it is possible to stabilize the foundation of even a fairly old house, without interference with the structure, which is very important for historical buildings.
