Voids Under Concrete in Kansas City and St. Louis

The concrete in the St. Louis and Kansas City area can experience problems due to the changing moisture content in the soil beneath the concrete. When this expansive soil gets too wet, it heaves and, when it becomes too dry, it shrinks. These constant changes leave voids beneath the concrete around your St. Louis, Kansas City, and surrounding area homes and businesses. This causes the concrete to crack and settle into the voids.

It is fast, accurate, and inexpensive. GPR uses a high-frequency radar antenna and advanced signal software to accurately locate the voids underneath the concrete. GPR also detects embedded utilities, conduit, PVC, rebar, and tension cables. This allows for accurate detection as to where the voids are. GPR is less costly than X-ray detection and doesn't use harmful radiation.

GPR units are portable and provide an instant location. When the GPR accurately detects these voids, the experts can start the repair process and get the voids filled and the concrete level and stabilized.
