Foundation Repair Methods

There are several different methods that we use to repair a foundations. Our contractors and professionals are licensed and have the training and experience necessary to assess the damage and determine the best course of action to repair your home’s foundation.

SlabJacking

Slabjacking is a foundation repair technique and also how we lift concrete. This method involves pumping a concrete slurry beneath a sinking slab of concrete in order to lift it back into place. This method is often used to fix sunken sidewalks, driveways, and patios. Slabjacking is a relatively simple and inexpensive repair method, and it can usually be completed in just a few hours. How do you know if slabjacking is the right method for your particular problem? Well, it really depends on the severity of the damage and the cause of the sinking. If the concrete has only sunk a few inches and the problem is not due to a major structural issue, then slabjacking may be all that is needed. However, if the concrete has sunk more than a few inches or if the problem is caused by a serious foundation issue, then other repair methods, such as piering, may be necessary.

Piers

 

Foundation repair piers are one of the most common methods used to repair a foundation. Piers are installed along the perimeter of the foundation to provide support and stability. There are several different types of piers that can be used, depending on the severity of the damage and the cause of the problem. Some of the most common types of piers include:

  • Helical piers: Helical piers are driven into the ground to provide support for the foundation. They are often used for foundations that have been damaged by settlement or heaving.
  • Plate piers: Plate piers are installed along the perimeter of the foundation and are connected to the footing with steel plates. They are often used for foundations that have been damaged by settlement or heaving.
  • Slab piers: Slab piers are installed under the foundation slab to provide support. They are often used for foundations that have been damaged by settlement or heaving.

Wall anchors

Foundation wall anchors are one of the most common types of foundation repair. They are used to stabilize and support foundation walls that have begun to crack or crumble. Foundation wall anchors are installed by drilling into the foundation wall and inserting a metal rod. The rod is then secured in place with a concrete anchor. Wall anchors can be used to repair foundation walls that are cracked, bowed, or leaning. They can also be used to prevent further damage to the foundation wall.

Foundation wall anchors offer a number of benefits, including:

  • Increased stability for cracked or bowed walls
  • Prevention of further damage to your home’s foundation
  • A cost-effective way to repair foundation damage

If your notice foundation settling or you notice large cracks then this could be signs of foundation damage and you may need to consider a full foundation repair. Please call us for a free inspection.
