Foundation Repair in Alton
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. Also, wall and floor cracks could also form in your basement. 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. Our team will fill the cracks with a special epoxy material. We will clean the surface of the crack, and then fill it up from the soil to the surface. This technique is very useful and effective.
