Does Your Home Need Foundation Repair?
There are a number of ways to determine whether or not you should contact a foundation repair company. Wall and floor cracks are one of the telltale signs, since a shifting foundation exerts stresses on drywall and concrete slabs. Forty-five degree cracks in your home’s drywall can indicate foundation problems, as can sticking windows and doors. If there’s a crack in your basement floor and one side is higher than the other, part of your foundation may have sunk. Horizontal or stair-step cracks often indicate the buildup of hydrostatic pressure in the surrounding soil.
If you see a crack in your home that’s more than 1/16th of an inch, ask All-Dry of Ohio for advice, and we’ll inspect your foundation for you. We’re always honest with our customers, so we won’t sell you a service you don’t truly need.
Installing piers beneath your foundation is the most stable way to secure it, and we make sure to use the most structurally sound piers available. Our home foundation repair system of choice is the Stabil-Loc Foundation Piering System.
Our Foundation Repair Process
Our installation process is efficient and includes the following steps:
- Determine what areas of your basement foundation need support and open up the concrete underneath them.
- Drive the supporting pier through soil using hydraulic pressure until it reaches bedrock or other stable strata—sometimes as deep as 30 feet.
- Attach the pier to foundation directly under the wall being lifted.
- Fill the immediate work area with concrete.
After installation, the piers can support up to 300,000 pounds and will keep your home’s foundation stabilized during rainstorms and floods. The Stabil-Loc system is an engineer-certified system that has been proven in thousands of homes nationwide. For more information, see the Stabil-Loc brochure. Home foundation repairs can make basement waterproofing and mold control easier, since many of the cracks that made it possible for water to seep through will stop expanding.
