Foundation Repair in Akunia, Virginia
When you have problems with the structural integrity of your home, it's not a problem that you should take lightly. Instead, you need to be sure that you get in touch with a repair expert ASAP to diagnose the problem and get it fixed immediately before even more damage is done. 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.
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 used to
- Wall and floor cracks show up in the basement of the home
- Cracks appear 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 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.
