Foundation Masters, LLC is a Civil Engineering Company Specializing in Sinkhole Testing, Sinkhole Repair and Foundation Repair. Our Sinkhole Testing methods are much better and more cost effective with real results. Foundation Masters, LLC only uses factual evidence to determine Confirmed Sinkhole Activity. Our Sinkhole Testing Methods are deep soil boring’s on all two corners of the structure, hand auger soil sampling, C.P.T testing and test pitting. Foundation Masters, LLC Sinkhole Testing starts at $3,000.00 we are the cheapest Sinkhole testing company in Florida with guaranteed results. There is one method we rarely use and that is G.P.R scanning, in most cases the G.P.R scanning is inconclusive so why waste your money. Ground Penetrating Radar (G.P.R) can be used to locate subsurface voids and sinkholes, as long as there’s no clay soils to reflect the radar! if you have a large piece of property then G.P.R. can be a cost effective method as long as heavy clay is not present.
Sinkhole Testing in Florida
Sinkholes form in karst terrain principally from the collapse of surface sediments into underground voids and cavities in the limestone bedrock. Slightly acidic groundwater slowly dissolves cavities and caves in the limestone over a period of many years. When the cavity enlarges to the point that its ceiling can no longer support the weight of overlying sediments, the earth collapses into the cavity. Alternatively, when surface sediments ravel downward, instead of collapsing, into cavities a bowl-shaped depression forms at the surface, usually over a considerable period of time. Well drilling data suggests that much of the underlying bedrock in Florida contains cavities of differing size and depth. However, very few ever collapse and directly affect roads or dwellings.
