shovel in the soil

There are different techniques that can be used to repair a slab foundation. What we need to do first though is figure out what the real issue with your slab foundation happens to be. There are certain companies out there that love to sound the alarm when they come in to do an inspection. With a few cracks they want to recommend some type of major repair. Our approach is completely different. We’ll give you a run down of the current state of your foundation. Then most of the time we’ll offer up different solutions. With pros and cons of each technique. So that you can get a better idea of where you are.

Signs That Your House Could Be Having A Problem

This is potentially the first thing that you’re going to want to look into. When we’re dealing with foundation issues a cracked floor is a clear sign that something’s up. If you realize that your doors don’t seem to close properly there could be something there as well. Again, noticing one of these issues isn’t necessarily going to lead to a major repair that needs to be done immediately. That being said, don’t ignore the signs and give us a call if you think that you could be dealing with an issue.         

Are Slab Repairs A Safe Option?

Recently there’s been some growing concerns when it comes to slab repairs. The main fear that folks have is that making adjustments underneath the slab is going to affect drainage and even gas lines that run underneath the building. That very well can be the case. That’s why we can’t just show up with a ton of shovels and say that we’re going to fix your foundation on the spot. This is a thought out process that naturally takes into account the challenges that drainage and other types of fixtures below the surface could bring to the table.

Should I Be Concerned About My Plumbing?

If we recommend that you look into a slab repair service accounting for your plumbing and all of the other lines that could be running underneath the slab is obviously something that we’re going to be doing. Could you just wait things out and hope that it’s not worse than a few cracks? Sure, but if things get worse your plumbings, and the structure of the house could be in jeopardy. It can be hard to make the decision for sure. We can give you the pros and cons of each scenario so that you’ll be able to make an informed decision.

Finding The Right Type of Repair For You

Whether we’re doing slabjacking piercing or another technique we’re going to make sure that it’s the best option for the particular structure. We mentioned on other parts of the site that people ask about slabjacking because they want to keep the existing surface “as is” when possible. That’s exactly what we are going to be able to do for you when possible!
