Common Causes of Concrete Damage
With more than twenty years of experience, our technicians are the most qualified to help identify the causes of your concrete damage and recommend the most effective solutions for property owners in the central and south Texas area.
Intrusive Tree Roots
One of the most common causes of concrete damage is intrusive tree roots. Although the process is slow, roots have the power to grow into or under concrete and cause significant structural damage. Cracked and unlevel concrete are the two most common problem signs due to intrusive tree roots. If the trees on your property cause cracks to form in your concrete, we can fix it with our concrete crack repair service. If there are no trees near your concrete surface, it is likely one of the other causes that are responsible for causing the damage.
Soil Erosion & Uneven Settling
A stable concrete structure relies on the underlying soil to support and maintain a level surface. Unfortunately, the changing conditions and rain eventually erode the ground, which makes your concrete susceptible to uneven settling and cracks. If the soil erodes near a joint, we can fix it with our concrete lifting service. However, cracks are more likely to appear if the erosion occurs away from a joint. Either way, the top technicians at Foundation Support Specialists are here to help.
Construction Errors & Low-Quality Materials
Contractors don’t always install concrete the proper way. Whether they do it to save a few dollars or accidentally make a mistake, errors in the construction process cause premature deterioration and extensive concrete damage. Construction errors include everything from too much water in the mix and inadequate shaking to an improper curing process. Although the concrete may look good initially, visual and structural flaws will appear much sooner than they otherwise would.
