Garage Column Cracks and Foundation Damage

Garage column cracks are cracks that form on the column between garage doors. This is a sign that your home is settling and could be a sign of future foundation problems in your home. If you see these cracks forming, it is a good idea to contact a masonry specialist for brick repair and brick re-pointing and a foundation repair specialist for any foundation repairs that might be done to lift the column and close the cracks. Fortunately for you, Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry does both of these things.

  • Sticking doors or windows

Any of the signs above in conjunction with garage column cracks could be a sign of foundation settlement, sinking, or even failure.

Garage Foundation Repair Solutions

Helical Piers

Helical piers have been in use for the stabilization of foundations since the early 1800s. The original helical pier was designed as a wooden shaft with an iron helix for use in lighthouse foundations. Helical piers have the capacity and longevity to support your home for years to come. They are quick to install and are an excellent choice for foundation repair and stabilization where limestone and/or load-bearing strata are not easily accessible.

Hydraulic Lift Slab Piers

These piers are perfect for structures on concrete slabs such as a garage. They are resistances piers made of steel that use the weight of the slab and encompasses the structure to face up to the force of the piering pipe. This is then pushed into load-bearing soils. This will level the slab. These piers are specifically designed for this type of job. Because the hydraulic slab pier uses portable equipment and is minimally invasive. Because of this, we can save you time and money.

These piers can be used for residential or commercial applications in our Virginia service area, and there is also a mechanical version available. We offer these and many solutions that might fit your needs and budget. Contact Reliable Masonry & Waterproofing today to learn more about our services in Virginia for your home or business.
