Foundation Repair in Altamont

wall crack

Structural problems with your home aren't things that you should ignore. Whenever you notice a problem, you need to contact a foundation specialist immediately so that they can pinpoint the cause of the problem and get it fixed for you. Often times, regardless of how well a home is built, it can experience problems due to shifting soil or from concrete shrinkage. This can cause everything from foundation settlement to bowed and leaning basement walls. What's more is that wall or floor cracks could form below your home. Neglect them, and it's only a matter of time before they start letting water seep into your home.

A lot of homeowners probably want to know what some of the warning signs are which could indicate that they have a problem on their hands that need attention. Look below to see some of the indications that you could have a structural problem:

  • Windows and doors don't open or close like they should
  • Wall and floor cracks show up in the basement of the home
  • Cracks form along window and door frames
  • Bowed walls appear in the basement
  • Leaks start coming in through the cove joint (where the basement floor meets the wall)
  • Noticeable sinking begins on one or more sides of the home
  • Basement floor feels sloped in certain spots

Foundation Crack Repair

Floor and wall cracks can develop in various sizes, short and long, and in a few different patterns. They can be vertical, horizontal, or even in a stair-step pattern. Regardless of what these cracks look like, they need to be filled with a special epoxy material by our professionals. The process begins with us wiping off the surface of the crack so that dirt and debris doesn't get inside, and then we will fill it from the dirt to the surface with epoxy. This epoxy injection technique has proven itself to be effective again and again. It will permanently seal the crack and prevent water from seeping inside. It can be painted over.
