Poured concrete foundations are without a doubt some of the sturdiest foundations out there. That doesn’t mean though that you will never see certain issues come up with these types of foundations. Moisture issues and shifting soil can lead to cracks and other problems that develop within the foundation. We can help you solve virtually any issue that can come up with your foundation. The first thing that we usually tell clients is that they shouldn’t panic when they spot that first crack in their concrete surface. Not every single crack that you spot is going to be a sign of a major foundation issue.
Concrete Foundation Inspection
The first step to any type of foundation repair is a proper inspection. If your foundation is about a decade old or more it’s probably a good idea to check on it at least on a yearly basis. Of course, poured concrete foundations are meant to last much longer than a decade. Still, if you’re proactive enough you’ll have a better chance of spotting small issues before they can develop into true structural damage. Whether or not you think that you may be dealing with a foundation issue we can provide a thorough inspection. To make sure that we catch problems early.
Fixing Cracks In Concrete
When we are evaluating a concrete foundation or a concrete surface in general and we spot certain cracks it’s important to make accurate determinations on these cracks. In many cases we’ll be able to provide simple repairs filling cracks with epoxy filling. In doing so, we’ll be able to allow that surface to join together again. You should not have too many issues moving forward. It is true though that in certain cases just filling the cracks that we find is not going to be a long term solution. That’s why proper inspections and evaluations are so important.
Slab Jacking Maybe The Better Option
The thing with foundation repairs for concrete foundations is that the severity of the issue is usually going to dictate what the best repair procedure might be. We don’t just want to come in like a lot of companies do and fill in the cracks and call the problem solved. Particularly if we’re seeing clear signs of important damage to the foundation. Slab Jacking could be one of the procedures that will work best to essentially strengthen your existing foundation. Particularly if we are seeing moisture damage or just a lot of overall wear and tear.
