Common Foundation Problems in the Alta Area
As mentioned above, there is no foundation problem in the Alta area that we won't be able to fix, including the following:
If you have a sinking home caused from settlement, this is an issue that must be fixed immediately before the problem gets worse. This problem is typically caused from the poor backfill of soil during the time when the home was being built. However, it could also be caused from soggy soils due to a wet spring or summer season. When this happens, the soil is to wet and soggy to support the full weight of the home, and it will then sink on one or more sides. To take care of the problem, we will install strong, durable piers that will be able to hold up the weight of your home and take it off of the weakened foundation.
Our team can also repair vertical, horizontal, and stair-step wall cracks on your foundation. These cracks can be caused from the natural curing process of concrete, or they could be a warning sign of foundation settlement or a bowing wall. To fix the crack, we will make use of an epoxy injection technique that will fill and seal the crack so that it will never again let moisture seep inside the home.
Our professionals can also fix leaning basement walls. This is an issue caused from pressure in the soil pushing on the basement walls and causing them to tilt into the home. When it comes to repair work for this kind of structural problem, we can install wall anchors, wall plates, wall braces, and wall supports to help strengthen the wall and make it much more stable and secure.
