Resin Injection

What is Resin Injection?

Resin injection for sunken foundations is a specialised technique used to address foundation settlement and restore stability to a building. In this process, a liquid resin is injected into voids or gaps beneath a sunken or settling foundation. The resin then expands and hardens, providing structural support and lifting the foundation back to its original position.

This method is an effective and non-invasive way to repair sunken foundations without the need for extensive excavation or costly reconstruction. It is often used in residential and commercial construction to resolve foundation settlement issues, ensuring the structural integrity and safety of the building.

When is Resin Injection required?

Resin injection is required in various situations where it serves as a valuable solution for structural repair, reinforcement, or protection. This process is typically employed when there is a need to stabilize, restore, or enhance the structural integrity of components or materials.

Common scenarios for resin injection include repairing cracks in concrete structures to prevent water infiltration and structural deterioration, reinforcing or strengthening weakened building elements, such as beams or columns, and addressing foundation settlement issues.

It is also used in manufacturing to create composite materials with superior strength-to-weight ratios. Resin injection is particularly beneficial when traditional repair or construction methods are impractical or when a non-invasive approach is necessary, making it a versatile and effective technique in various industries.

 

How do I know if I need it?

Knowing when resin injection is needed involves assessing various structural and material factors. If you encounter visible cracks, deterioration, or water damage in concrete or other structural components, it suggests a potential requirement for resin injection to repair and reinforce the affected areas.

Uneven floors, structural instability, or signs of foundation settlement, like doors that no longer close properly, are strong indicators that resin injection might be necessary to stabilize and restore your building’s foundation.

Furthermore, if there’s a significant loss of load-bearing capacity or a need for lightweight yet robust composite materials, resin injection may be a valuable solution. Seeking professional advice is often crucial for an accurate assessment in specific cases and that’s where Shield Preservation can help you.
