Void Filling

A concrete slab is suspended above its subbase. A red graphic "void" is used to show the empty space that is beneath the concrete.

Restoring Stability: The Importance of Void Filling

Over time, various factors such as soil compaction, animal activity, and water erosion can contribute to the formation of cavities beneath your concrete. These hollow spaces can lead to a variety of problems, including cracked and settled concrete, poor water drainage, and pest infestation. Filling these voids is essential to prevent further damage, additional expenses on repair, and maintaining the integrity of your property.

What is Void Filling?

Void filling refers to the process of filling cavities and empty spaces underneath your concrete surfaces and structures to provide stability and restore structural integrity.

How It Works

Advantages of Filling Voids Under Your Concrete

Filling cavities and empty spaces present under concrete offers several significant benefits:

  • Prevents Settlement: When voids are left unfilled under your concrete, it can lead to settlement, causing the concrete to sink or become uneven. This can create safety hazards and make the area unusable. By filling voids, you can prevent settlement and maintain a level and stable surface.

  • Avoids Animal Intrusion: Unfilled voids provide an open invitation for animals to make their home under your concrete. Burrowing animals such as rodents or ground-dwelling insects may find these voids attractive. This can lead to damage to the concrete and potentially even infestations inside your property. Filling the voids helps deter these unwanted guests and protects your home from potential damage.

  • Prevents Costly Future Repairs: Ignoring voids under your concrete can lead to more significant problems in the future. Settlement can cause cracks, uneven surfaces, or complete failure of the concrete. These issues can be expensive to repair or may require complete replacement. By filling the voids early on, you can avoid such costly repairs and save money.

  • Extends Concrete Lifespan: Void filling helps to maintain the structural integrity of your concrete. Supporting the concrete and eliminating voids can prevent premature deterioration and extend the overall lifespan of the concrete. This means less frequent repairs or replacements, saving you time and money in the long run.

Void filling under concrete offers numerous advantages, such as preventing settlement, deterring animal intrusions, avoiding expensive repairs, enhancing safety, prolonging the lifespan of the concrete, and improving the overall appeal of your property. It plays a crucial role in maintaining a durable and visually pleasing concrete surface.
