When a sudden storm hits East Texas, most of us are worried about trees falling or driving conditions on the road. Have you considered that the same pressure is acting on your home’s foundation? Flood waters and debris can weaken the overall structure, whether that’s a concrete slab or a pier and beam foundation.
If you’ve noticed signs of structural damage to your home after a storm, restore your peace of mind with a free foundation inspection by Lone Star Foundation Repair.
Your home is important and deserves the highest quality workmanship. No matter what type of foundation you have, it’s normal to have shifting or cracking over the years.
The key is addressing the damage quickly, so you can protect your home and your wallet.
Pier and beam repair may include replacing beams eaten away by wood rot, installing new beams or floor joists, or re-shimming the foundation. Mold and mildew can also take over the crawl space below your home, a sign that water has probably made it’s way into the wooden parts of your foundation structure.
The sinking that accompanies these issues can usually be solved with push piers or steel piers that use steel tube sections and large brackets that reach down to the bedrock. Pier and beam foundation repair costs vary depending on the repair, so our team will come out for a free inspection before quoting a price.
The most common and most visible problem with concrete slab foundations is cracking. This can be caused by shrinking in the cold, extreme weight and pressure, or drying out in the heat. Slab cracks are also the biggest threat to the structural integrity of your home.
Hiring a professional foundation repairman and concrete installer will save you time, money, and headaches in the long run.
It may be hard to notice if your house is unlevel. If you think you’ve noticed sloping floors, look for these other signs of warping:
If any of these sound familiar, call a foundation repair professional for an inspection.
You can’t predict the behavior of the soil that your home sits on, and if your home has begun to settle unevenly, it will probably get worse before it gets better.
As the seasons change, the ground expands and contracts with the weather and your home is feeling the effects. Over the years, your home’s foundation will become weaker and more mishapen.
As foundation issues become apparent through cracks in the walls, plumbing issues, and more, waiting to schedule a repair can result in extensive damage throughout the home.
The more things that break before you address the foundation problem, the more it will cost to return the function and appearance of your home as it was intended to be.
Labor and materials go up 3% in cost on average every year. In addition, the construction industry is notorious for shortages of materials and the law of supply and demand will drive prices up over time.
