Concrete Slab Foundation Repair and Replacement
If you’ve noticed signs of foundation damage around your home – especially in the form of interior and exterior wall and ceiling cracking – it may be time to replace your concrete slab foundation.
While concrete slab foundations are an extremely popular and durable type of commercial, residential, and multi-family foundation structure, like any type of material it can degrade over time, making it vulnerable to damage.
A concrete slab foundation replacement is a large undertaking and should only be entrusted to a professional and vetted foundation repair and replacement company, like Julian Construction.
Visible cracking doesn’t necessarily indicate foundation damage, but it should always be inspected by a foundation contractor to determine the type and severity of the issue.
That’s because not all cracks are created equal. A few minor cracks could potentially indicate foundation instability, while larger cracks may have no direct correlation to structural damage. Only a foundation expert can assess this type of damage and provide an accurate plan of action for repair.
Here are a few of the most common foundation warning signs:
- Cracked Drywall.
- Gaps Between Exterior Windows and Walls.
- Sloped or Sinking Floors.
- Counters, Cabinets, or Other Static Structures Separating From the Wall.
- Cracked or Leaning Chimney.
- Cracks in the Walls or Floor.
- Nails Popping Out of Drywall.
- Warped Floors or Ceilings.
If you’ve noticed any of these warning signs, it’s essential to contact a foundation repair company as soon as possible. These issues, if left unchecked and unrepaired, will only worsen with time, costing you more money down the road.
Oftentimes, a deteriorated or damaged slab foundation is the result of water intrusion, poor site preparation, and/or erosion, which all can lead to major cracking and breaking.
When foundation damage is caught early, a foundation repair company can repair the existing slab foundation by slabjacking, which is the process of lifting the concrete and filling the gaps to restore the slab to its original position.
