WHAT WE DO
Concrete Slab Foundation Repair
Foundation failure indicators can manifest in various ways, serving as warning signs that there may be underlying issues with your homes foundation. Some common indicators include: Visible cracks in walls, floors, or ceilings, especially those that are wider than a quarter-inch, can indicate foundation movement or settlement. Floors that slope or feel uneven when walking can be a sign of foundation problems, as shifting or settling can cause a loss of levelness. Doors and windows that become difficult to open or close may be a result of foundation movement, which can cause frames to become misaligned. If the roofline appears to sag or has areas that are visibly uneven, it may indicate foundation issues, as the shifting can affect the overall structure. Foundation problems can lead to plumbing complications, such as leaky pipes, inconsistent water flow, or sewer line backups. Deterioration of concrete, such as crumbling or flaking, can be a sign of foundation settlement or water damage. Excessive soil movement or erosion around the foundation, including the appearance of sinkholes or soil separation from the foundation, can indicate underlying issues. It's important to note that these indicators can vary depending on the specific circumstances, and consulting one of our professional foundation inspectors is recommended for an accurate assessment of any potential foundation problems.
Pier and Beam Foundation Repair
PIR (Pier and Beam) and BEAM (Block and Base) foundations are common types of foundation systems. Here are some brief descriptions of their respective failure indicators:
Sagging or Uneven Floors: PIR foundations rely on wooden beams and joists, so if these components start to weaken or deteriorate, it can lead to sagging or uneven floors.
PIR foundations utilize piers to support the structure. If the piers shift or sink due to soil movement or inadequate support, it can cause structural instability.
Since PIR foundations involve wooden elements, rot or decay in the beams, joists, or piers can indicate foundation problems.
Excessive moisture or water intrusion can weaken the wood in PIR foundations, leading to rot, mold growth, or structural damage.
BEAM Foundation Failure Indicators: BEAM foundations consist of concrete blocks stacked to form the foundation walls. Cracks in these blocks can indicate settlement or movement of the foundation. If the foundation walls of a BEAM system start bulging or tilting, it suggests an uneven load distribution or inadequate support, potentially leading to foundation failure. The mortar used to hold the concrete blocks together may deteriorate over time. Crumbling or deteriorating mortar joints can compromise the integrity of the foundation. Water seeping through cracks or gaps in the foundation walls can lead to erosion, weakening the foundation and causing further damage. It's important to consult one of our professional foundation inspectors if you notice any of these indicators to assess the severity of the issue and determine the appropriate course of action.
Surface Drainage Systems
A surface drain is a drainage system designed to collect and redirect water from the surface, typically used to prevent water accumulation and potential damage to surrounding areas. It consists of a shallow trench or channel with a grate or cover that allows water to enter. The drain is typically installed in areas prone to water runoff, such as driveways, patios, or sloped landscapes. When it rains and water accumulates on the surface, the surface drain collects the water through the grate or cover and channels it away from the area. The collected water then flows through an underground pipe system, which carries it to a designated drainage point, such as a storm drain, dry well, or a proper outlet away from the property. Surface drains are effective in managing surface water by preventing pooling, reducing soil erosion, and protecting structures and landscapes from water damage. They are commonly used in residential, commercial, and public settings to maintain proper water drainage and promote a safer and more functional environment.
