Whether you own a home or business, our foundation repair crew is knowledgeable about all types of buildings. There are a variety of ways to repair a crumbling foundation. Some techniques are simple fixes for when you catch onto a problem before it becomes widespread. Other methods are more involved and are typically used in older homes where the foundation has been exposed to decades of moisture.
How To Tell If Your Foundation Needs Repairs
- Standing water in the basement
- Pooling water in your yard
- Mold or moisture in your crawlspace
- Cracks or bowing walls throughout the building
- Uneven or sagging floors
- Door or window gaps
Often times water tends to be the number one enemy of a basement. Even when you start to notice just a little bit seeping in after a storm, you don’t want to ignore this. Taking action sooner rather can help avoid more costly repairs in the future. Small cracks in your foundation can quickly open up or start crumbling rapidly during the winter and spring when water is abundant in the surrounding soil.
The Foundation Repair Process
At Structural Repair & Renovations we understand how expensive foundation repairs can be for the home or building owner. Our goal is to give all our clients reasonable pricing with quality workmanship. When you contact our team, one of our associates will come out to inspect the foundation. Once we have accessed the soil quality, condition of the basement walls and floor, and extent of all the damages, we will give you a fair estimate.
Depending on the stage of the deterioration, It may be necessary to first stabilize the soil in order to lift the house. When we lift the house, all utilities including gas, water, and electricity will be turned off for safety. Once the foundation has been repaired all the landscaping soil will be returned and the utilities can be turned back on. Typically plumbing repairs will have to be done as pipes are often shifted around in advanced stages of deterioration.
