About The Project
Contractor Mid-South Concrete Leveling
Project Location Seneca Rocks, WV
Product Used Terrathane™ 24-003

Problem

  • Soil Subsidence and erosion caused voids beneath the Seneca Rocks Discovery Center’s concrete slab foundations
  • Some slabs were left with dips of up to 3”

  • Add drainage, new caulking and cleanup the areas with minimal disruption to the center’s activities

Results

  • Filled all voids and leveled slabs
  • Added minimal weight to the area when compared to concrete grout (4lbs vs 130lbs)
  • Tripping hazards were mitigated
  • Completed in 3.5 days
  • Saved thousands of dollars by avoiding replacement or versus alternative methods
