Foundation Repair in Altavista, VA
Structural problems with your home aren't things that you should ignore. 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. Regardless of how old or new your home may be, it can still have structural problems because of concrete shrinkage or from the soil shifting around the foundation. 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 are often developed in stair-step, vertical, or horizontal patterns. Our team will fill the cracks with a special epoxy material. 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.
