As most Texas homeowners know, drought is a big deal in the Lone Star state. For most of the year, we stay dry with very little rain. Our yards turn brown and visible cracks in the ground start to appear. Combined with the weight of your sidewalks or driveway, these slabs will slowly start to sink and produce uneven and cracked concrete.
The state of your crawl space and the health of your home are inextricable. As such, maintaining a healthy crawl space is one of the most important things you can do to ensure you have a safe and healthy home for you and your family.
WHY HOMEOWNERS CHOOSE FOUNDATION SUPPORT SPECIALSTS
Foundation Support Specialists was founded on the idea of providing solid, reliable foundation services to our neighbors in and around San Antonio and Austin, TX. Our family owned and operated business started with the idea that, by combining exceptional customer service along with the highest quality workmanship, we could transform something as serious as home or business foundation repair into a positive experience for our clients.
Unfortunately, your home’s foundation can be easily damaged by environmental factors such as humidity, soil problems, and precipitation. Corpus Christi’s coastal climate brings all three of these to the table. Rain and humidity saturate the clay and loamy soils common in Nueces County, and this buildup of moisture causes soil washout. This process breaks down the soil around your foundation and leads to foundation problem signs like settlement sinking, floor and wall gaps, and wall cracks. FSS has foundation repair solutions that permanently fix your problematic foundation. These include pier and beam foundation repair, steel pier systems, and wall anchors.
Crawl Space Encapsulation & Repair in Corpus Christi, Texas
Corpus Christi’s sub-tropical climate, and its close proximity to the coast, create a humid environment that is devastating to your crawl space. Moreover, Corpus Christi’s rainiest months are August and September. Rain only adds to rising humidity levels and the amount of water that gets below your home. When moisture enters your crawl space, it leads to hazardous problem signs such as mold, wood rot, or crawl space flooding. However, FSS has crawl space solutions designed to keep moisture out for good. We use vapor barriers, dehumidifiers, and other interior waterproofing tools to provide impenetrable defense for your crawl space.
Concrete Lifting in Corpus Christi, Texas
Soil is the name of the game when it comes to healthy concrete. Damaged soil quickly leads to damaged concrete, uneven driveways, or unlevel steps . Nueces County is made up of mostly clay soils and sandy loam soils – each of which are easily affected by the humidity and rainfall common to the area. When clay soil absorbs water, it expands in size and pushes against concrete structures, forcing them to crack. On the other hand, water may cause loam soil to become muddy and unsupportive, which leads to concrete sinking into the ground. FSS uses PolyRenewal ™, a polyurethane injection system that levels concrete back into place and won’t be damaged by any causes of concrete damage.
Yes. Professional foundation repair is the best possible way to handle foundation damage, and it’s been proven by our team. Thousands of homeowners in Austin, San Antonio, Victoria, and Corpus Christi have relied on FSS for their foundation repair with great success – and the solutions are permanent every time.
High humidity in any environment, whether a home, basement, or crawl space, can be devastating. Generally, humidity levels in these spaces should be between 30-60 percent, with an optimum goal of 50-55 percent. At these levels, mold, wood rot, and other moisture-related issues have no chance of developing. Moreover, keeping your crawl space within the proper humidity range can also lower utility bills in your home since humid air won’t be traveling up from your crawl space.
Many homeowners think using store-bought sealant or concrete will fix their concrete issues. Unfortunately, these fail to solve the actual problem behind your damaged driveway – weak soil. Only professional concrete solutions such as PolyRenewal™ remove problematic soil from the equation. Using material from your local hardware store only provides a surface level fix and will eventually suffer from the same problems that caused your damaged driveway in the first place.
