Sinkhole Repair & Filling

American Foundation and Basement Repairs offers sinkhole repair & filling solutions. Individuals who live in regions of karst topography know all too well the impact of sinkholes, but most are not really prepared to face the challenge of finding a sinkhole developing inside their own yard, and that's why we offer professional sinkhole filling services in Knoxville, Asheville, Chattanooga, Johnson City, and Cookeville. Figuring out the best steps in confronting a sinkhole is rather tough, but it always begins with contacting a trained professional to help with locating the cause of the sinkhole.

Normal & Dangerous Sinkholes To Look For

Home in Sinkhole

The only sinkholes which homeowners have the ability to independently repair are not really sinkholes at all. They are really soil which happens to move because of stump removal, rotting wood underneath the ground, foundation collapse, old wells, groundwater movement, drainage problems or poor soil quality. In these situations, the homeowner can simply  fix the root problem without any trouble. This can be done by filling in the sinkhole with dirt, gravel, and sod.

Locating the correct proportions of these 'sinkhole enabling' ingredients demands careful research, but the problem is usually resolved without a lot of assistance from professionals. True sinkholes, however, really are a completely different story.

How Are True Sinkholes Formed?

A true sinkhole is understood to be a natural depression or hole in that is created in the surface of the Earth through karst processes. Karst processes basically means that carbonate rocks, like sandstone or limestone, are steadily dissolved through erosion processes. The important distinction between this and more manageable yard issues is that the erosion is taking place inside the rock many feet underneath the soil.

An ordinary homeowner can't even see the rock which is dissolved, so it is definitely not possible to repair the problem without professional assistance. If a real sinkhole is suspected, then a homeowner should contact us immediately. The problem is great enough that it may very easily ruin an entire home, but only an expert can know the exact prognosis linked to the sinkhole.

As A Sinkhole Filling Company, We Have A Solution

If it is fixable, the general process our sinkhole filling company uses calls for excavating at least the whole yard, but might require excavating the yard's of neighbors, also. The hole, which is usually very big, is then filled up with dirt and rock. Dealing with a task this massive is only possible with the help of a professional, so it is important to speak to a specialist if there is any chance that a sinkhole is developing.
