Types of Foundation Repair
Maintaining the structural integrity of your home is crucial. The combination of warning signs of foundation problems, severity of damage and the type of foundation used to build your house will determine the options available to fix your foundation.
If signs of foundation damage are noticed and addressed early enough, less invasive methods of foundation repair can be used to stabilize your existing foundation. Many structural repairs can be completed within one day and cost less than more invasive methods.
When signs of foundation damage are more severe, more invasive methods must be used to make your home stable and safe. Replacing some or all of the load bearing components of your foundation may be necessary in cases of severe damage in order to address the cause of the problem.
Properly fixing your foundation requires a custom solution that will address the causes of structural problems, repair the existing damage and prevent more damage in the future.
