Running a city or municipality often involves handling an inordinate number of different responsibilities. A number of these might not offer the opportunity for flashy photo opportunities, but are absolutely vital to the everyday operations. Failure in these areas will result in the wrong type of photo opportunities, which can be a nightmare to handle.
Two specific issues that can occur are problems with the underground culvert that handles the community water and sewage situations and the use of cast in place concrete. Both can fall victim to simple aging or become damaged in some other fashion, which can require either box culvert joint sealing or cast in place join sealing to deal with the problem.
These are vital because of their ability to deal with the problem of everyday concerns like water from storms, wastewater and industrial fluids that need to be properly disposed of by a company and cause headaches during municipal foundation repair. The location of the culverts is often directly below heavily traveled areas like highways and railways, which means that when the joints that connect the culverts begin to fail, disaster may be on the immediate horizon.
The good news is that Stabilicore can make sure that the box culvert joint sealing is performed in a prompt fashion. The speed with which the work is performed doesn’t mean that short cuts were taken and questions of stability remain. On the contrary, our process that allows for rapid expansion of polyurethane foam helps solidify the culvert and make any disruption a brief interlude instead of an interminable aggravation.
Cast In Place Concrete
When it comes to the use of cast in place concrete, there are certain concerns that may not arise when precast concrete is used instead. The original construction may have used a lesser quality of ready mix or the rush to complete a job may have resulted in the hardening process to be compromised in some fashion.
Obviously, other concerns can also come into play but regardless of what error may have the cause, the joints can be weakened. Returning those joints to their previous level of strength can be accomplished with Stabilicore’s quick and easy process of cast in place join sealing. That helps immediately address what can develop into a major problem and reduce the span of repair time from weeks to hours.
A Ticking Time Bomb
In both circumstances, both the box culvert and cast in place concrete can end up being progressively weakened as vehicles or rail cars travel day after day over the respective areas. Waiting to address the problem is tempting fate, especially since a quick and easy fix would eliminate a tremendous amount of down time. It’s also infinitely better than dealing with the aftermath of disaster that’s caused by a sinkhole or derailment.
Stabilicore’s ability to address the issue of both box culvert joint sealing and cast in place join sealing is something that should appeal to communities that are often keeping a wary eye on their budgets. That’s because the cost of our work is much less expensive than standard repairs of this nature.
All that’s required on our end is the injection of the polyurethane foam that expands at lightning speed. This not only avoids having to dig things up, which simply adds to repair expenses, but limits the inconvenience for all concerned.
So when the need for work of this nature arises, remember the name of Stabilicore and feel free to contact us as soon as possible. It will help make your life so much simpler.
