What Causes Foundation Issues?
Now that we’ve identified your foundation is damaged, what is causing it? Water is the main cause of foundation problems, with moisture mixing with soil, causing the ground to change, swell, and alter, shifting itself. This new soft soil leads to movement beneath your home. Additional situations can also affect your house’s foundation. It should be noted that San Antonio has expansive clay soil, which can cause your foundation to move. Take note of the following aspects. Your property may be at higher risk for foundation damage if:
- Your area has poor drainage
- You have had plumbing leaks under your home
- You have large trees around – their roots can damage your foundation
- It was built on expansive clay or improperly compacted soils
Types of Foundation Repair
There are many types of foundation repair we can use to correct your home. Depending on the damage and your property, we’ll adapt our techniques to serve your house best. Some of the foundation repair types are:
Helical Piers – we use these for exterior foundation and interior slab repairs. They function in porch columns or structures with vinyl siding and are exceptionally versatile.
Steel Piers – this process revolutionized foundation repair. They are fast and effective, cutting down on disturbing landscapes as opposed to older concrete piers.
Polyurethane Foam – our technicians inject the foam in a grid-like pattern. This method is affordable and quick. However, it does require managing HVAC ducts and plumbing to avoid causing additional problems.
Segmented Piers – one of the newest methods in the industry, they’re the most affordable method for foundation repair.
Spot Piers – these are shallow piers that we hand dig and fill with concrete, providing support in low-load areas like porches and patios.
