Causes for Repair
In our many years of working within the concrete contractor industry, we have a deep understanding for the factors that cause concrete foundations to need new installation and repairs. Many of these issues stem from moisture that effect the flexibility of soil under your foundation. If your home is standing on top of soil that was not properly level and and compacted, this causes instability and shifting whenever soil dries then becomes wet again. Over time this causes cracks to appear in your foundation. Poor drainage is also another factor as well as leaks in your plumbing. these are all issues that should be addressed without delay.
