Concrete Slab Repair
If you spot any sign of damage to your home’s concrete slab, it’s important to have it addressed as quickly as possible - left unchecked you may experience further damage to your home which is expensive and tricky to repair. For example, you might suffer damage to both the exterior and interior of the home, including structural damage. Concrete slab foundations are common in homes in this region, and are designed to shift with the natural movements of the ground the home is placed on. However, if you have a heavily planted backyard, or an older home, the concrete foundation slab of your home can start to settle, and even crack or fail. Give us a call at Bryan Foundation Repair if you spot damage to your concrete slab, or think you need a foundation inspection, today.
Why Might The Concrete Slab Foundation in My Home Fail?
Because homes in our area benefit from a relatively shallow frost line, building foundations do not need to be sunk as deeply as in colder areas to be structurally sound. Using a concrete slab foundation is therefore a popular choice for home builders. This works extremely well, but thanks to natural changes in soil conditions t the slab can become damaged over the years, and can crack or fail. We see this especially in homes with lots of trees in the back yard, or decorative flower borders close to the property. The roots of these plants cause even more changes in the ground and speed up the wear and tear experienced by concrete slab foundations.
