Why Do We Perform Home Foundation Repair?
Many times, the first sign of a failing foundation is uneven floors, doors that don’t close properly or bouncy floors. While water damage can cause some of these problems, they might be the result of poor craftsmanship when the home was constructed and could indicate that it’s time to seek a professional skilled in sagging floor repair.
Another major indicator of trouble is cracking. You may notice cracks developing in your drywall, plaster or brickwork. If your windows are showing signs of diagonal cracks or your exterior bricks show a stair-step pattern of cracking in the mortar, that’s another good reason to give us a call. This requires more than just a quick patch job — your foundation is in need of serious attention.
If you notice any of these issues around your house, they won’t go away on their own. If anything, they probably will get worse. Contact us as soon as you see these problems and receive expert service from our qualified and trained professionals.
What Should You Expect?
Although each foundation repair job is unique, there are a few steps you should expect us to perform when we come to help you. First, we begin by preparing the property, disconnecting your utilities, and putting down tarps to protect your yard and garden. Next, we most likely will dig trenches around the perimeter of your house or drill holes through your slab if you require interior piers.
The next step is lifting the foundation by installing concrete or steel piers and then positioning the house over them. This will stabilize the entire structure and prevent any further shifting or settling. Once that is complete, we will start the cleanup process, filling in the trenches and removing any signs we were there. If we had to remove any of your landscaping, we will replace it. No one will be able to tell we were ever there, but you’ll have the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your home is secure, and you’ll avoid trouble for a long time to come.
