You’ve seen them on the news, and on the front page of the papers… But sinkholes are not always catastrophic. In fact, most of the times
Sinkholes are deep below the foundation and can cause shifting in the soils beneath the home. So, while sometimes Sinkholes do result in a structure falling into the ground, most often they are not that dramatic.
The first thing to look for is small cracks in your floors, walls, driveways and sidewalks. If your doors or windows do not close easily, this can also be a sign of a shift in your foundation, and uneven settling of your home.
Call Titan Repair Specialists, we would love to give you a FREE SINKHOLE CONSULTATION, to find the best possible solution for you.

• Compaction Grouting
This is the most common form of Sinkhole Repair. Basically, a grout solution is pumped into the solid beneath your home, to fill any and all voids that may exist, whether large or small. Grouting is the best method to repair homes that have loose soil. As grout is injected, it firms up the loose soil and compacts it, while also filling in any cavities that may exist.
• Chemical Grouting
Chemical Grouting is most often used to repair shallow sinkhole activity. Essentially, a liquid polyurethane is injected below your home. This solution will expand after being injected and firm up all loose soils that may be causing cracks and damage to your home.

Grout Injected Piers are a combination of two different methods of sinkhole and foundation repair, giving you the best of the repair processes. Grout Injected Piers are large diameter, perforated, steel pins are drilled beneath your home until competent lime rock, or solid bedrock is reached.
