Residential buildings

Cracks can appear in walls and floors of buildings as a result of foundation settlement caused by weakening of the ground below the building. In order to remove such cracks it is necessary to first and foremost eliminate the reason that caused them, i.e. to reinforce the ground and raise the foundation to the design height. The easiest way to do that is to use URETEK’s geopolymer injection technology.
