3 Ways Concrete Lifting Will Save Your Property December 23, 2016

3 Ways Concrete Lifting Will Save Your Property , Pond Creek, Kentucky

In the past, concrete lifting was reserved for airport runways and highway slabs, but it’s now a common service offered to residential property owners. It works by drilling holes into a damaged slab and pumping additional material into the sunken area. It’s both more affordable and less invasive than a complete slab replacement, and it will also save your property from future damage.

Here are a few examples to show how worthwhile concrete lifting can be.

  • Water Damage: As the soil beneath your home shifts and the concrete foundation cracks, water will be diverted away from its proper drainage path. It will be redirected to areas with lower soil levels, which will lead to excessive moisture buildup beneath the foundation and in other places around your property. When this happens, mold and wood rot are inevitable. The best way to keep your property dry and maintain proper drainage is to address foundation repair issues as soon as possible.concrete lifting
  • Cracked Or Bowed Walls: Telling yourself your home is still “settling” when you notice hairline cracks in your walls will only worsen the situation. It’s true that building materials are designed to relax and give over time, but that settling should never result in cracked walls. If it does, a sinking foundation is the most likely cause. Concrete lifting will remove extra strain from your walls to prevent damage.
  • Sagging Floors: When your foundation begins to sink, your floors may follow suit. Whether your home features expensive wood floors or laminate, once they start to sag, there is no quick fix. You’ll probably need to replace the flooring material after you handle the underlying foundation issues. You’ll save yourself time and money by fixing the foundation before your floors start to sag.
