House subsidence & alternative underpinning solutions
Homeowners have so much to lose when it comes to ground subsidence, in the form of damage, cost of repairs, and depreciation in the value of the property. That’s why we are dedicated to providing affordable and highly effective solutions.
But, while homeowners want to get their problem sorted as quickly as possible, they will also dread the disruption that comes with major structure work. Home is a place to unwind, away from the stresses of work and the outside world, so turning it into a building site is never going to welcomed. However, Geobear’s geo-polymer resin injection method of ground stabilisation is designed to be carried out quickly, quietly and in a way that obstructs as little as possible.
No excavation with heavy machinery is required, unlike with other methods of ground stabilisation. The only drilling required is for a small hole to inject the Geobear materials into next to the site of the subsidence. In most cases, the occupants of a home can stay onsite while the injection is occurring – that’s how non-disruptive a process it is. Geobear stabilises buildings quickly, economically, and with minimal disruption to occupants.
Using Geobear technology, weak foundation ground is strengthened beneath footings and rafts. Where required, rafts can be raised. As the ground is improved, injection is continued to potentially close up wall cracks and correct the alignment of windows and doors.
Precisely controlled by laser monitoring, most projects can be completed from the outside, and there is usually no need for occupants to move out. Work is completed in one or two days rather than weeks. A major advantage of Deep Injection is that it adds very little weight to foundation ground.
Geobear’s technology is the advanced alternative to piling and underpinning, and is widely used by Britain’s major insurance companies, local authorities, and housing associations.
