Concrete Foundation Repair

If you notice changes in the concrete around your home, it could be a sign that your concrete foundation is in need of repair. Some of changes in concrete to be aware of are:

  • Concrete scaling - Concrete scaling is the loss of surface mortar
  • Concrete spalling - Concrete spalling is easy to see as the concrete becomes rough and flaky
  • Concrete cracks
  • Concrete heaving
  • Concrete shrinking

If you notice any of these changes with your concrete, it can also mean that your concrete foundation may be in need of repair, too. Your foundation concrete is not as obvious to see as the concrete surrounding your home. When the concrete surrounding your home is damaged, this can mean that the soil beneath your concrete along with beneath your foundation has shifted and moved. This shifting of the soil beneath both your concrete and foundation will also cause them to shift and move as well. Knowing if your concrete foundation is damaged, you need to look around your home for some of the signs that may indicate that the foundation has shifted and moved. Some of these signs are:

  • Sloping floors
  • Wall cracks
  • Floor cracks
  • Ceiling cracks
  • Bowing or leaning walls
  • Leaning chimney
  • Sticking doors and windows

Any of these signs can mean that your foundation may be in need of repair. It is important that if you find any of these signs, to have an expert in foundation repair come and inspect your home and foundation. My Foundation Repairs has contractors that can come and give you a free inspection. These contractors use only the best products for foundation repair. These products are manufactured by Earth Contact Products (ECP), the leader in foundation repair products in the industry.

Foundation Repair Solutions

After the conctractor from My Foundation Repairs inspects your foundation and determines that it is in need of repair, they will find the best solution for your repair needs. To repair your foundation, we use underpinning products such as helical piers and steel push piers. We also repair concrete foundation walls using toebacls amd wall anchors.

Both the steel piers and helical piers are driven deep into the ground until they reach a solid soil layer. Then the piers are individually load tested and then using hydraulic jacks, the entire weight of the structure is lifted on the piers to lift and stablize the foundation.

Helical tieback anchors are used to stabilize and strengthen bowing concrete basement walls. These helical anchors are installed from inside the basement wall through a small hole and with small exterior excavation, the basement wall is immediately pulled back to its original design. These helical tieback anchors also strengthen the wall so that there won't be any future bowing or leaning of the wall.

If you see the concrete surrounding your home is damaged, then it is important to have a professional in foundation repair come and make inspect your foundation, too. The sooner the foundation is repaired, the lease amount of structural damage will occur throughout your home. Don't hesitate to contact My Foundation Repairs and let a contractor inspect your foundation.
