Foundation Repair FAQs
How do I know if I have a foundation problem?
Are you worried that your home might have foundation problems? It can be a nerve-wracking thought, but there are some common signs worth looking out for. If you notice any cracks in your walls or floors, it could be an indication that your foundation is shifting. Similarly, if you find that your doors or windows are sticking or difficult to open, it could also be a sign that your foundation is not stable.
You should also pay attention to the flooring in your home – if you notice a slope or unevenness, this could signal a foundation problem. Finally, keep an eye out for gaps between walls and ceilings, as this could suggest your foundation is weakening and separating from your home’s structure.
If you notice any of these warning signs, don’t hesitate to call in a professional. Taking action sooner rather than later can save you time, money, and a lot of stress in the long run.
How long does a typical foundation repair project take?
The duration of a foundation repair project cannot be determined beforehand as it depends on the severity of the damage. The repair could take anywhere from a few days to several weeks. It is important to consult a foundation expert to assess the extent of the damage and get an accurate estimate of the timeline for the repair. Although it may take some time, it is worth investing in the safety and stability of your home’s foundation.
Will foundation problems affect the value of my home?
It’s essential to keep in mind that foundation issues can have a significant impact on the overall value of your home. Whether you plan to sell your property soon or want to ensure that it retains its worth over time, it’s crucial to address any foundation problems immediately. By doing so, you can prevent further damage and maintain the structural integrity of your home for years to come. Remember, the sooner you take action on foundation issues, the better off you’ll be in the long run.
What is the cost to level a foundation?
The cost of repairing a foundation can vary depending on various factors. These may include the extent of the damage, the type of foundation, and the location of the property. While it may be tempting to estimate the cost yourself, it’s always best to seek a professional assessment.
An accurate estimate from a qualified contractor can give you a better understanding of the situation and help you make informed decisions about moving forward. Therefore, if you notice any signs of foundation problems, don’t hesitate to seek professional help for a much-needed assessment.
Can I list and sell my property once foundation repair has been done?
Selling a property can be a daunting task, especially after investing in foundation repairs. However, there’s good news! You can confidently list and sell your property after the completion of foundation repairs. This not only ensures the safety of the structure but also enhances its market value.
Potential buyers are always looking for peace of mind when it comes to buying a property, and knowing that foundation repairs have been done can give them a sense of security. Therefore, you don’t need to worry! Your property remains a valuable asset on the market, and the added bonus of foundation repairs can make it even more appealing to potential buyers.
Concrete Leveling and Repair FAQs
When it comes to concrete repair, there are a lot of questions that people have. Fortunately, we have compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help you get started. Concrete repair can be a daunting task, but with a little knowledge and the right tools, it can be easily accomplished.
What is Deep Foamjection?
What is polyjacking?
Polyjacking (also be known as polyurethane concrete raising or leveling, poly leveling, or even poly foam) is the process of injecting environmentally friendly foam under sunken concrete to lift and level.
During this process, a small, dime-sized hole is drilled through the concrete slab and a tapered delivery port is installed into the hole. Raising the concrete with polyurethane foam is done with incremental injections. Within seconds, the polyurethane expands, compressing loose soils and raising your concrete, allowing us to monitor the process and preventing over-raising the slab. The polyurethane stabilizes the underlying soil and concrete, so it doesn’t fracture or fail.
What is deep foam injection?
Deep foam injection is the process of injecting polyurethane foam at specific depths underneath the foundation’s footer where settlement has occurred. By injecting the foam deeply beneath the footer, the foam compacts the loose soil that has caused the settlement of the foundation, displaces any water present underneath the foundation, and increases the load-bearing capacity of the soil that your property is built on.
What is the difference between general polyjacking and deep foam injection?
Polyjacking works to fill the void between your concrete and the settling sediment. The deep foam injection process drills deep into the soil bed, to compact the soil.
How are the holes filled?
After the concrete is raised, a foam plug is inserted into the hole and the hole is patched over with cement. The concrete is ready for use immediately.
How long will the repair last?
All of our concrete repair and leveling services are guaranteed to last the entire lifetime of the concrete.
How much weight can your product support?
Our polyurethane foam is formulated to be a permanent solution and strong enough to support thousands of pounds.
Is polyurethane foam safe for the environment?
Polyurethane foam consists of 39-49% renewable and recycled materials. Plus, it will never leach dangerous chemicals or pollute groundwater.
