Foundation Repair in Brandy Station, Virginia
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.

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 can be vertical, horizontal, or even in a stair-step pattern. 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 technique is very useful and effective. It will permanently seal the crack and prevent water from seeping inside. It can be painted over.
