What is Foundation Repair All About?
Foundation is an integral, pivotal and structural component of your house or commercial property. It is the foundation that holds your entire property upright and stable. It protects your house from moisture and shields your house from movements in the underlying soil. A sturdy and reliable foundation is a quintessential requirement. Ideally, foundations should last a lifetime and longer. However, foundations have to endure a lot of challenges over the years, from soil conditions to water tables and the natural degradation of materials.
While foundations can be as much as one fifth of the weight of your house, they can settle or move. Foundations can suffer damage if the fill soils get compressed; if the fill soils are not properly compacted; if there is lack of timely maintenance of areas around the foundation; and if the construction is predominantly on clay. It is common for clay surfaces to expand. It is particularly common in Dallas and across North Texas.
Whenever you have a problem with your foundation, you should immediately opt for holistic repair. You may need to repair the slab foundation, the pier and beam foundation or mud jacking.
