Foundation Repair in Blacksburg, Virginia
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. Often times, regardless of how well a home is built, it can experience problems due to shifting soil or from concrete shrinkage. This can lead to settlement problems or bowing 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.

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. 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.
