Foundation problems are usually caused by the continuously changing soil conditions around your building. This happens because soil expands when it absorbs moisture and contracts as it dries. The process of expanding and contracting causes foundations to move, settle, and crack. This is especially true during dry periods or heavy rains. Tress and large plants can also cause damage as they drink up moisture and dry out the soil under your home. Too much soil moisture due to inadequate drainage is yet another source of foundation problems. Any or all of these factors can also cause doors and windows to stick. And create cracks in drywall and brick among other problems; all resulting in the potential for significant damage to your home. We can repair these problems by leveling and/ or “shoring” your home or building’s foundation and we can do it with a lifetime transferrable warranty.
Just a quick note...in some areas of Louisiana the term " shoring" is used by locals interchangeably with "foundation repair," and "foundation leveling."
There are 4 primary ways you can spot problems with your home's foundation:
1) Cracks in exterior and interior walls, especially near doors, windows and ceilings
2) Doors that stick, or won't stay shut
3) Uneven floors...If you set down a ball, does it stay in place, or roll away?
4) Windows start to stick or will not completely shut
If any of these apply to your home, contact us and we'll inspect your home and provide an estimate, free of charge.
