Soil Stabilization & Ground Improvement Services
URETEK provides effective, affordable, and safe repair techniques for stabilizing underground soils. As the pioneer in ground improvement solutions with expanding polymer injection, we continue to be the industry leader with non-disruptive soil and concrete repair solutions.
Our ground improvement solutions are ideal for public and private structural assets with settlement problems that are the result of unstable soil conditions. The URETEK repair technology is ideally suited to void fill, seal, lift, and/or stabilize the soils below various foundation types.
Control Soil Issues At The Source
At URETEK, our goal is to provide customers with quality solutions that solve soil issues directly at their source.
Our soil compaction and densification process focuses on repairing and strengthening the areas where problematic soil and concrete settlement exists.
URETEK’s state-of-the-art high-density polymer expanding foam injection process strengthens weak or loose soil strata, re-levels concrete, and restores the soil’s load-bearing capacity; all while being non-destructive and environmentally friendly!
Strengthen Weak Soils & Fill Voids with Zero Excavation
URETEK offers zero excavation repair solutions for strengthening weak soils under building foundations, structures, concrete slabs, and infrastructure assets.
With our industry leading expanding polyurethane grouting injection solutions, The URETEK Method® and The Deep Injection® Process, we are able to bring trusted, long lasting repair solutions nationwide.
With multiple polymer formulas available to best suit each soil type, URETEK is able to meet the needs of any project, large or small.

RESTORE PUBLIC & PRIVATE INFRASTRUCTURE ASSETS
The URETEK stabilization solutions are ground improvement and re-leveling techniques that raise concrete slabs and fill voids using the regulated injection of lightweight, hydro-insensitive, non-hazardous expanding structural polymer.
Technicians drill small holes in the concrete and inject our patented URETEK polymer underneath the affected structure where it consolidates the weak soil strata, bonds uncompacted soil and open fissures, and remediates both shallow and deep voids. After the injection process is complete, the holes are sealed, any flooring is repaired, and the area is cleaned immediately. The result is strong soil, filled voids and a re-leveled and stabilized concrete slab. The structure is ready for normal operation within 15 minutes.
Since the early days of modern civilization, road builders and building construction contractors have understood the relationship between a stable ground and the roads and structures that lie on that ground. When weather conditions produce rain, snow, or severe temperature shifts, deep underground expanses such as voids, fissures, and water pockets can be created that in turn, destabilize road surfaces, highways and building foundations. The result – cracks, settlement, sinkholes, and more that can wreak havoc on private and public assets such as roadways, sewers, and private buildings and structures.
Even though contractors can seal the cracks, lay down new concrete or asphalt, or rebuild the damaged structure, it only masks the underlying problem, requiring that a similar round of maintenance is needed again after the next season of severe weather. The key to having quality building structures that last longer and require less frequent maintenance is having a stable underlying soil foundation on which these materials and components lie.
The materials that are used to stabilize underground soils play an important role in offsetting problems on a permanent basis. The most effective materials that stabilize an underground soil base must not only fill expanses, but more importantly, must also drive out and seal them from the entry of water into subsurface soil pockets.
Many municipalities and commercial businesses are now re- examining the role that having a stable underground base plays on the maintenance of their public and private structures, and, are placing a greater emphasis on preventative measures designed to strengthen these underground soil strata. By increasing the density of compromised subsurface soils as part of project maintenance, repairs are longer lasting and the asset is better protected.
