Cracked walls, uneven floors, footpaths, driveways, jammed windows and unaligned doors can all be signs of potential problems with foundation ground. Homeowners who spot these problems around their home often start by calling upon tradespeople to help restore their home to its original condition.
However, as these issues often require a more technical engineered solution, Mainmark is frequently called upon to help. Mainmark’s Teretek® non-invasive resin injection solution is frequently used as a cost-effective way to improve ground-bearing capacity and to re-level buildings that have been impacted by foundation subsidence issues.
Consultation and referral between the homeowner, Mainmark, and speciality trades (such as landscapers, plasterers, plumbers and builders) may take place either before or after ground improvement works have been completed, with different trades each playing an important role in the remediation process.
Following are a few examples of the types of ground issues different trades might encounter when undertaking residential remediation projects.
