Much care is taken when a foundation is poured. There is a great deal of technical skill involved. After all, whether a house withstands the test of time or sinks and cracks is all dependent upon the foundation. When your home experiences structural damage, it is usually the result of a faulty foundation. It is our job to discover the source of the problem, confirm a diagnosis and make the necessary repairs. Concrete slab and pier beam repair should not be taken lightly. If you suspect that your foundation is in need of repair, contact McKinney Foundation Repair.
Causes of Concrete Slab Failure
There are many reasons why your concrete slab may prematurely fail. We typically receive calls for slab repair due to uneven settling. If the original slab was not poured on top of a reinforced sub based, it is likely to settle in the earth beyond what is considered normal. We often find that one side will settle more than the rest. This can cause you home to experience structural damage. Excessive water surrounding the foundation is another cause for concern. Once the water permeates the foundation it can cause mold, shifting and cracking beneath the surface. Tree roots constantly searching for nutrients can cause your foundation to shift, buckle and crack.
