Foundation Repair in Abingdon, Virginia
When you have problems with the structural integrity of your home, it's not a problem that you should take lightly. 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. Also, wall and floor cracks could also form in your basement. Neglect them, and it's only a matter of time before they start letting water seep into your home.
Many homeowners call us and want to know about the warning signs of a foundation problem. Take a look at the list below to see what some of the signs are:
- Windows and doors don't open or close like they once did
- 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

Foundation Crack Repair
Cracks on the walls and floors can appear in a variety of sizes and patterns. They are often developed in stair-step, vertical, or horizontal patterns. Regardless of what these cracks look like, they need to be filled with a special epoxy material by our professionals. We will clean the surface of the crack, and then fill it up from the soil to the surface. This epoxy injection technique has proven itself to be effective again and again. It will seal the crack and stop water from ever getting into your home. Once dry, the crack and epoxy can be painted over if need be.
