How to Know When to Repair Your Foundations
However, if you do not know how to recognize the signs of damaged foundations, you could potentially be letting a severe defect go unnoticed. That is why you must make yourself aware of some of the most common indicators. Finding cracks in your interior or exterior walls is nearly always a sign of a defect, while uneven flooring, walls, or doorframes can be a guarantee. And, if there are obvious signs of physical damage, you know that you need to have your foundations repaired as soon as possible.
Slab Jacking Method
One of the most effective ways to cure failing concrete foundations is to opt for the slab jacking method. Foundations usually fail due to weakened or shifting soil beneath them. When gaps appear, they are quickly filled by the movement of the footing. So, to remedy the issue, new concrete material must be injected into them. This will bolster the strength of the area and will once again lift out any sagging foundations until they are returned to their precise position. Simply leave it to our team and we will have no trouble calculating the exact slab jacking approach to take.
On the other hand, if the terrain that your house is set on is not going to allow this, we will instead opt for the piering method. By planting new galvanized steel piers into the ground, we can better spread the weight of your foundations and lift them back into a secure position. This is an ideal method for any sinking homes with crawl spaces beneath them and can even work just as well for those with concrete footings.
And just as much so, if your basement foundations are failing, we can apply the same two methods with the same efficacy. Basements have unique weaknesses which must be considered for the task to be successful, but you can bet that our team will be up to the task of finding a solution. Just be sure to let us know about the exact signs of damage that you notice so that we can make the best estimation for the repairs.
