How We Helped Toro Company With Their Industrial Floors

In the winter of 2012, Toro Company hired us to repair their industrial warehouse floor in Shakopee, Minnesota. This is how we helped them.

The Challenge

Toro’s industrial manufacturing floor slabs endured harsh conditions daily, including heavy equipment, steel-wheel forklifts, vibrating equipment, and more. These conditions resulted in damage to the concrete surfaces, joints, and nosing.

Damaged industrial concrete creates safety hazards, is hard on equipment, and can inhibit and even stop production. A stop in 24-hour production was not an option, so the challenge was to get in, complete a quality repair, and get out as quickly as possible.

The Solution

We needed to repair the damaged areas with a polymer mortar that could be driven on 15 minutes after installation. Dustless equipment was used to remove the damaged areas to a depth of approximately 1.5 inches.

Next, we applied a bonding agent and installed the polymer mortar (Floor Fix).

The Floor Fix was ground flush with the adjoining floor surface and control joints were re-cut and filled with polyurea (RS-88). The manufacturing team was able to return to business as usual.

5 years later (2017), the repair sites were still in perfect condition.

How We Helped A Burnsville Resident With Their Interior Drain Tile System

When a Burnsville homeowner’s basement flooded in the winter of 2017, we moved quickly to fix their basement and get their life back to normal.

The Challenge

The homeowner had a sump basket without a pump. No sump pump was installed to move the water out of the home.

The builder-installed drain tile system filled with water and flooded their basement. As a result, the entire basement had to be gutted and new building materials installed.

The resident contacted us for a fair and competitive bid to fix their problem

Our Solution

We installed a drain tile system around the perimeter of the basement, which included installing a poly vapor barrier on the foundation walls to allow any condensation that may collect on the walls to drain into the new drain tile system.

A new sump pump and battery backup system was installed to further protect their investment in their home. This system comes with a lifetime warranty, so they’ll be set if any problems arise in the future.

Project Summary

In two days, we installed 150 lineal feet of drain tile, vapor barrier, radon connection, and a new Pro Series S1033 Primary / Battery Back-Up Sump Pump System.

Case Study: Concrete Slab Stabilization for Renewal by Andersen

In the spring of 2017, we helped Renewal by Andersen level their concrete warehouse floors to help keep production safe and efficient.

The Challenge:

Renewal by Andersen had slab curl in their concrete warehouse floors. Slab curl is the warping of the edges and corners of the concrete slab. Slab curl is commonplace in large, indoor concrete floors, usually caused by drying shrinkage during installation.

This curling creates small voids underneath concrete slab edges, leading to shifting of the slabs under forklift traffic. This movement increases damage to concrete, slows production, and is hard on equipment and personnel.

Our Solution:

Our teams began by measuring the amount of curl on the affected slabs. We then removed the exiting joint filler, drilled access holes in the concrete, and filled the voids with 5-pound structural polyurethane. This stabilizes the slabs and any loose soil beneath them.

Following polyurethane injections, we filled the construction joints with polyurea joint filler. This long-lasting repair method is quick, clean, and requires little production downtime. Forklift traffic was able to resume immediately after the reconstruction was completed.Renewal by Andersen now has a concrete floor that is level and safe for forklifts and foot travel.

This mechanical room foundation in Eden Prairie, MN settled down and away from the building foundation. By installing helical piers, the settlement was recovered and the foundation is stabilized. You can see the helical pier process in video below.

Spring Home Inspections YOU can do Right Now

Spring has sprung, the snow is melting, and the ground is thawing. Use our Spring Checklist to inspect your home or business and head off any liability or water intrusion issues.


​SITE CONCRETE (Liability Issues)

  • Inspect all concrete sidewalks, driveways, aprons for tripping hazards (TIP: Any height difference 3/4 inch or greater is considered a tripping hazard).
  • Inspect all concrete sidewalks and entryways for proper step heights (TIP: Proper step height is to be within 7 – 8 inch rise. However, there are exceptions within some association properties; please let us know if you have questions).
  • Inspect all concrete for hazardous surface defects (i.e. cracks, spalling, etc.)
  • Inspect existing concrete caulking at common areas, pools, clubhouses, etc. If defective, remove and replace to properly minimize surface water intrusion.

​LANDSCAPE & DRAINAGE (Site Water Issues)

  • Inspect landscape surrounding the home/building.
    1. Grade should be positive to drain surface water away.
    2. 4 to 6 inches separation between grade/landscape and any siding, brick, etc.
  • Inspect all deck, porch, and privacy fence footings. Did they heave with frost during the Winter?
  • Inspect all gutters and downspouts.
    1. Where is the water being discharged?
    2. Is the discharge location causing an issue (puddling, erosion, frost heave, etc.)?
  • Inspect all ground-level windows and window wells
    1. Is there proper grade separation (4-6 inches) beneath the window?
    2. Is the well in good condition and properly retaining the outside soils?


  • Remove the sump basket lid and inspect the sump pump and piping.
  • Run the pump and/or the battery backup system to verify proper function.
  • At the exterior, inspect the sump discharge pipe for damage.
    1. Does the pipe discharge to the surface, or into an approved outlet (storm sewer or daylight). Does the location of sump discharge appear to be creating any drainage concerns?
