Foundation Repair in Annandale

wall crack

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. 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. Also, wall and floor cracks could also form in your basement. Choose to ignore them and they will likely start to leak.

Many homeowners call us and want to know about the warning signs of a foundation problem. Look below to see some of the indications that you could have a structural problem:

  • Windows and doors don't open or close like they used to
  • Wall and floor cracks develop 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 is seen 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. 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. It will permanently seal the crack and prevent water from seeping inside. Once dry, the crack and epoxy can be painted over if need be.
