Why You Shouldn’t Wait on Foundation Issues
What issues are you preventing when you repair your foundation now through leveling? A sturdy and level foundation extends the life of your foundation. So, you will (hopefully) avoid the necessity of paying for a new foundation earlier than you need to. Of course, a foundation that’s not level can lead to a whole range of other issues.
- Your walls may not be straight.
- Your ceilings won’t be square.
- You may face chimney issues, which can become a liability.
- Plumbing issues can lead to leaking, mold, and mildew.
These issues may sound insignificant, but they can affect the resale value of your home while adversely affecting air quality and safety.
What Is Foundation Leveling?
With foundation leveling, our goal is to lift and stabilize a foundation that has settled. Doing this alleviates weight from crawlspaces, plumbing, vents, and drainage. Leveling can help to mitigate water-related issues such as leaking, bursting, and pooling. So, we may prevent further damage to drywall, brick, and bowing structures.
After the foundation is secured back in place, we install steel Push Piers into loadbearing areas so that your house will be anchored to its proper place. So, it will no longer be susceptible to sinking.
