Sinkhole Repair in Pleasant View, TN
When you picture a sinkhole, how big do you imagine it to be? Do you think of it as a minor tripping hazard to avoid or something that could destroy your entire house? Both scenarios are possible. United Structural Systems is the top sinkhole repair service company in Pleasant View. Our trusted experts can deal with almost any sinkhole.
What is a Sinkhole?
Imagine a boulder or large rock buried under your soil. Groundwater eventually erodes the rock, and in time, it becomes completely broken down. This causes a sinkhole.
The rock leaves behind a void as it erodes. Soil sinks into the empty space, and as more and more soil is washed down, it becomes a sinkhole.
How Do Sinkholes Form in Pleasant View, TN?
The bedrock in Tennessee is often composed of dolostone and soluble limestone, and this poses a problem. Sinkhole formation is a result of this composition and cycles of heavy rains and droughts. Sinkholes can form anywhere due to natural features, poor drainage planning, and incorrect grading.
Sinkhole Warning Signs
Here are some signs to watch out for if you are concerned about sinkholes occurring on your property. If you notice new cracks in the ground, trees or fence posts tilting, or depressions in the ground that weren’t there previously, these signs could indicate a growing sinkhole.
How We Repair Sinkholes
Our sinkhole repair specialists often perform an inverted cone filter repair. We first perform a sinkhole inspection and cost estimate on your Pleasant View property for free. Then, we excavate the area to expose the hole in the bedrock. Then, we carefully pack the hole with the appropriate sized rocks. We then line the excavated areas with nongovernmental geotextile fabric.
The sinkhole is then filled with #57 gravel and compacted down to near ground level. After the gravel has been filled, the geotextile fabric is placed over it and then covered with the excavated soil. We might also look at ways to divert water from the affected region to prevent the issue from returning.
