Why is Foundation Repair Important?

The foundations of your home provide the very structure with which it stands. Damage to foundations is not good news, and although it may seem like the problem is not huge, if left untreated cracks can become bigger, and the stability of your home can become compromised.

As well as being displeasing to the eye, damage to foundations can also allow water into the property, causing further problems in the form of damp, mold, and flooding.

Our foundation repair services can restore the structural integrity of your home, and neatly reverse any damage already caused. This also provides added protection against damp and mold in the future, especially if combined with other solutions.

Foundation Repair For Walls & Floors

Foundation floors and walls can both suffer from damage from water and other causes, and require slightly different approaches in order to repair, and in order to prevent further damage in the future.

Typically, foundation floor cracks are caused by the building settling, poor drainage of the surface, or leaks coming up through the floor, as can be the case with older houses. Solutions can involve drainage systems and pumps, and weeping tiles with concrete repairs to any damage.

Damage to foundation walls can be caused by a variety of reasons, including settlement, poor construction, climate, and water damage. The solution is to apply sealants, epoxy injections, and/or hydraulic cement, and to provide drainage and waterproofing to prevent any further damage.

What Causes Foundation Damage?

There are many reasons why foundation cracks and damage might occur. Over time, pressure from soil, climate, and water, among other reasons can cause foundation walls and floors to crack:
  • Hydraulic Cement
    This is used to cover and seal large cracks and gaps, and will be used in most cases where the damage is substantial. The cement expands once applied to the crevice, and so makes a great sealant that will keep water out, and provide stability for your home.
  • Sealant
    High quality sealant can be used in order to provide a water tight repair for small gaps and cracks in your home’s foundations.
  • Epoxy Injections
    A special kind of resin sealant is injected into the cavity of a crack or gap, and is allowed to fill the concrete with a waterproof seal that will completely stop the crack in its tracks.
  • Subsidence & Soil
    As soil and water shift downwards this can create pressure on the foundation walls. Your house will naturally settle after construction, and even this can cause damage to foundations, but further tension can come from water table levels rising and falling due to heavy rainfall, and from extreme dry patches.
  • Poor Construction
    When your home was built, it is possible that the cement mix was not perfect, or that whether conditions caused expansion and contraction, and cracking the walls. Bad workmanship can also be the culprit, especially when combined with adverse soil and climate conditions.
  • Drainage Problems
    Leaky drainage, or non-existent waterproofing solutions can cause water to build up behind the foundation walls, or to collect in pools on basement floors. This can cause damage in the form of erosion and cracks.
