is the best choice for a lasting repair. Many homes are repaired using single pier systems where the weight is shared on single fork style piers underneath the home. Over time the pier may slip and if one pier is compromised then the entire system will fail.
Integrated Concrete Services always uses a dual pier system backed by a lifetime warranty. Instead of a single pier supporting the foundation, you have two piers side by side sharing the load. So, let us restore the integrity of your home’s foundation and the foundation of your largest investment.

Central Texas soil contains clay. Clay soils, commonly called shrink-swell soils, are frequently moving due to extreme dry or moist conditions. This constant motion of expanding and contracting creates major foundation issues.
The soil swells moving the home's foundation so much that it often breaks the foundation, then when the soil dries it then shrinks and retracts and the foundation settles into a void. The financial loss to homeowners because of foundation damage is worse than tornadoes. Tornadoes come and go, but clay soil is always there and always reacting to changing moist and dry conditions.
To protect your home ICS offers soil stabilization. Our soil stabilizing experts will inject the chemical compound into your soil to prevent further shifting around the foundation which will prevent cracks and weakening of your foundation. With an eco-friendly stabilizer called Earthlok, ICS can prevent further soil shifting in a fraction of the time of other competitors. This procedure can be used for a variety of situations from parking lots to backyard pools without damaging the soil or having to uproot the foundation. All it takes is a few injections into the ground, and your foundation will be secure and backed by a lifetime warranty.
When faced with the problem of a driveway settling unevenly or sidewalk cracking and sloping, there are very few options. Most of these options are often expensive and unreliable. The development of polyurethane foam for slab jacking applications has provided property owners with a cost-effective and lasting choice to raise and sustain their foundations and slabs.
Foam Jacking is an easier way to help support concrete. Polyurethane foam is pumped into a void beneath the slab. Foam has a high strength to weight ratio and an outstanding dimensional stability profile. It sets up faster in the void space, resulting in shorter project times, and less inconvenience for the property owner.
Polyurethane foam works to stabilize the soil underneath the foundation or slab, and because of its expansion rate and density, it lifts the foundation and slab back to proper level alignment. Effective to 1/8 of an inch, foam allows a trained applicator the ability to lift, repair and restore the damaged slab or foundation.
Poor drainage around a home causes water pooling. Water will seep into the concrete and over time breaks down the concrete in your foundation. During winter times when the temperature drops low enough to freeze water, it causes expansion and makes the home swell which can cause cracks in the walls and ceiling. Let our men install underground drainage pipes to remove the water and prevent future pooling problems, especially during the rainy months of spring. Add language about swelling.
