Foundation Repair in Alderson, West Virginia
When you have problems with the structural integrity of your home, it's not a problem that you should take lightly. 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 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
Cracks on the walls and floors can appear in a variety of sizes and 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 epoxy injection technique has proven itself to be effective again and again. 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.
