Summer Foundation Issues

June is here, and summer weather is fast approaching.  With our mild winter and extremely wet spring, experts have predicted that the coming months will be extremely hot and extremely dry.  While that makes for great pool weather, it’s also going to exacerbate any foundation problems you may already have. Drought So what happens when the monsoon stops and the temperature rises?  As the soil around and under your home dries out, it contracts and settles, which reveals voids under slab foundations and can destabilize your home piering.  It’s not that the voids weren’t already...

Soil Erosion

With Memorial Day weekend upon us, now is a great time to be getting out in the yard and doing some planting.  For many of us, this means filling our flower beds or vegetable patches, but with the recent rains and more on the way, you might want to consider something a little larger. As I’ve mentioned before, Tulsa lies on a flood plain; its soil is very fine and, for lack of a better term, slippery.  When we have an extended wet season all of that rain and flooding moves the soil around your home, sometimes taking it away altogether.  This problem is exacerbated by hot, dry summers...

Meet the Team

I love working for a locally-owned business; I know the names and faces of everyone I work with, and they know mine. Our clients also trust us more.  If you call into the office, nine times out of ten you’ll be speaking to me (at least initially), and if you sign with us you’ll wind up meeting the whole team at some point or other. And that’s all well and good, but who, exactly, are we? First of all, we have the owner and primary project surveyor, Mike.  He’s worked in the field for over thirty years, and is the go-to guy for polyurethane foam injection.  He and  our...

On The Job

A lot of my work can be done in front of a keyboard – writing these posts, for instance – so it’s always fun for me to get to go to a job and see our crews in action.  And last Friday that’s exactly what I did!  Our client is renovating a rental property and has slab issues.     A lot of slab issues.     (Those straight grooves are called stitching, and are re-filled after the crack is repair to “stitch” the concrete back together.) I wasn’t there for my own curiosity though, I was there because I’d never actually seen our foam injection...

Solving Drainage Issues

I want to start by saying that we at Trifusion have those injured by last night’s storm in our thoughts today, and that we’re all thankful that there were no fatalities.   But it does highlight the fact that storm season is officially upon us.  And naturally, spring rains always highlight the biggest problem for Oklahoma foundations: drainage. In theory, your home’s gutters are going to be doing a lot of the heavy lifting in this area, by funneling the water away from your home.  However, all those gutters do is catch runoff from your roof and channel it into one corner...
