With warmer weather approaching, your man cave could probably use a little TLC before having company over. Get your garage ready for summer shenanigans while you’re stuck at home! To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of a few things you should check for on a yearly basis to help know when you’re in need of garage foundation repairs.
Some moisture on the garage floor is common and usually not cause for concern. Especially in wet conditions where cars are dripping water onto the floor. However, if you notice pooling water, you may want to have a foundation specialist take a look. Pooling water can be a sign of soil movement or sinking below the concrete.
Cracks are typically a sign of settling or applied pressure. Depending on the size and severity of the cracks, they are typically easily repaired with a polyurethane concrete injection. Look for cracks in the floors, walls, and on the exterior of your garage, especially near the corners of the garage doors.
A gap between your garage floor and driveway may begin to form or become more uneven as time passes. With the change of weather and moisture levels, soil expands and contracts causing the concrete to move along with it. To combat further sinking, our contractors will typically use PolyPier, a two-part polyurethane product developed by ECP. Check out this video for a quick demonstration on how easy this is!
