*National Science Foundation, UTA, 2002-Present, Project Chairman, Tracking remedial foundation methods used in the 26 states which have expansive clay soils.
Upon many years of researching methods used in foundation repair, repairing failed foundations, and examining failed systems, Walt developed the state-of-the-art system exclusively used by Brazos Valley Solutions LLC, Pro-Max.
The Pro-Max piling system is a highly superior method of repairing reinforced concrete slab on grade or reinforced concrete beam foundations placed upon expansive clay soils (typically found in the Bryan/College Station area), utilizing a lead pilot piling designed to insert deeper than the typical concrete piling. When the pilot is driven it displaces the lateral pressurized soils due to pressurization of compacting soils during the driving process. This release enables deeper penetration of the piling column & plausible permanent lock. The final result is a piling system which by design will reach a load bearing strata (soil capable of supporting 9K, PSI) that typically is not affected by seasonal weather conditions or transpiration caused by trees.
Foundation inspections and repair is a construction science of its own, know your contractor.
