What Causes Large-Scale Foundation Problems?
A majority of structural foundation defects that require a partial or complete replacement result from simple issues such as failure to reinforce the slab properly or natural effects such as earthquakes, storms, tornadoes, and underground water below your home. Anything that makes your home move, sink, or shift will cause a problem to your foundation.
Another common cause for foundation replacement is poor support for the original foundation resulting in your house sinking lower in the soil around it. This causes the foundation to start developing cracks, breaking, or even sagging. There are many other causes of foundation problems. Our professional foundation technicians will assess your foundation and determine whether to repair it or do a partial or complete replacement based on the extent of the damage.
What is a Partial Foundation Replacement?
This is one of the most common ways of repairing a damaged foundation. A majority of homes can regain stability and strength with just a partial replacement of the original foundation. In this type of repair, only the affected parts of the foundation slab are replaced leaving the rest intact. We will carefully replace the damaged section of your foundation slab and pour new concrete on the damaged part to provide better and more durable support for your home. We usually recommend partial replacement when the damage is just restricted to a small section of your foundation.
Complete Foundation Replacement
A complete or full replacement is often recommended for homes with severely damaged foundations. In severe cases, this is usually the best course of action given that partial replacement is not always as effective as a complete overhaul. A partial replacement does not settle properly with the existing foundation which makes a complete replacement the better option.
