Foundation Repair in Algoma

wall crack

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. 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. Neglect them, and it's only a matter of time before they start letting water seep into your home.

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 once did
  • Wall and floor cracks show up in the basement of the home
  • Cracks appear along window and door frames
  • Bowing walls appear in the basement
  • Leaks start coming in through the cove joint (where the basement floor meets the wall)
  • Noticeable settlement 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 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. 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. Once dry, the crack and epoxy can be painted over if need be.
