Foundation Repair in Arlington
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. Choose to ignore them and they will likely start to leak.

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 technique is very useful and effective. It will permanently seal the crack and prevent water from seeping inside. It can be painted over.
