Concrete Slab Foundation Repairs
Professional Repairs for Homes & Businesses With Slab Foundations
A home or commercial building is made to last generations, and, with the right foundation, it certainly can. However, over time certain issues can threaten a slab, or concrete, foundation. When the concrete around your building starts to buckle, it can threaten the structural integrity of the foundation. A slab foundation could be compromised due to:
Tree roots that are starting to penetrate into the foundation.
The original foundation footings are too shallow and are not allowing the building to manage shifts in soil levels well.
Heavy weight from the structure or building that the concrete can no longer support.
Clay in the soil that has expanded and contracted enough to shift the ground and crack the concrete foundation.
If you start to notice things like cracks in the concrete slab, exterior bricks or interior drywall, it may be time to schedule a foundation inspection performed by FSS. Our team has seen it all when it comes to slab foundation damage. For professional repair solutions from a company with the right experience, call Foundation Support Specialists today.
Slab Foundation Repair Solutions By FSS
When it comes to correcting a slab foundation issue with your home or business, the methods we use at FSS typically employ piers that are inserted deep into the ground to help stabilize the foundation. The types of piers we use include:
Helical Piers - This type of pier is made of steel and resembles a long screw. Helical piers help spread the weight of the building across several points underneath a foundation.
Push Piers - This method is used as a series of hollow steel pipes that are driven deep until they reach bedrock or a load-bearing layer of earth, creating a resistance mass that keeps the piers, and ultimately the building, supported.
We use quality products from Titan Product and Earth Contact Products that are American made and built to last.
Not all slab foundation repairs require such extensive methods. Our team will be able to expertly identify the problem and find a solution that makes sense in order to fix and stabilize your slab foundation.
