Not all cracks are foundation problems!
While there are many causes of cracks in concrete construction, not all cracks are caused by foundation issues. Even those that may be foundation issues can sometimes be relatively minor fixes. Whether the cracks are caused by differential foundation settlement (part of your foundation settles at a different rate than the rest), the dreaded “S” word (if you live in Florida you know what that means), or the cracks are simply shrinkage cracks (cracks normally occurring as concrete cures), we have the experience to help you determine the best course of action if any is needed, for your unique situation.
Causes of differential settlement can be things such as:
Loose sands and/or poor compaction before the foundation was poured
Organic material or clay in the soil
Erosion of soils/ loss of land (hillsides, waterside, poor drainage, retaining wall or seawall (bulkhead) failure, etc..)
And yes, the “S” word...
What we can do...
We help homeowners, investors, property managers, general contractors, construction managers, and engineers troubleshoot foundations and ‘cracks’ in homes, commercial buildings, pool decks, bulkheads (seawalls and retaining walls) and even crawl space foundation areas. We have the experience and the connections in the industry to help navigate the many repairs, soil stabilization solutions, and pre-construction foundation options available. We have the experience because we’ve done it. We are constantly researching, testing, and helping to develop and advance methods and products in the foundation and soil modification industry. If it works, we recommend it, if it’s a gimmick, we know about it. Call us for a free consultation.
