Our Foundation Repair Methods
All foundations settle with time and may move slightly, but when the foundation is uneven, there will be problems. Some signs of a foundation problem are wall rotation, cracked brick that moves in a “stair” pattern, as well as separation around the garage door, walls, and windows. Also pay attention to cracks in the foundation and misshapen molding. You may see uneven and cracked floors, cracked walls, and misaligned doors on the inside, all of which might indicate you have some serious foundation problems.
These issues and damages can arise due to a number of different reasons. Water is usually to blame since moisture can cause the soil under your foundation to shift. Foundations built on clay soils are more susceptible to foundation damage and poor drainage around your foundation is bad. Plumbing issues can also lead to foundation damage. Tree roots can be pesky and get into places they shouldn’t. Earthquakes and floods are also reasons for foundation damage, as is a foundation that wasn’t poured properly, to begin with. Whatever the cause, it is never good or safe to have foundation issues. Call one of our concrete repair Columbus experts today if you are experiencing any of these problems. We can help get your foundation back on track.
Our foundation repair methods are foolproof. There are many different methods to use depending on the problem. Typically, small issues are repaired using slab jacking. This is accomplished by pumping a concrete grout through strategically placed holes in the concrete slab. As the grout solidifies, it provides a bearing for the concrete slab.
We can also use piering, which involves driving steel posts through the unstable soil. Then we use hydraulic jacks to raise and stabilize the concrete slab. This method is usually used for more serious problems, like the relocation of an entire house or commercial building. Our technology and our knowledge about foundation repair in Halifax are unlike anything else in the business. You can trust us to get the job done right and ensure that your home or office building is built solid.
