If you have noticed a sloping or uneven floor in your Virginia home, it could be a sign of foundation failure. If foundation issues are left unchecked, it can cause extensive damage. Some of the other signs to look for in your home that would indicate a foundation problem are:
- Sticking doors and windows
- Floor cracks
- Wall cracks
So if you have sloped or uneven floors, it is a good idea to look for some of these other signs of foundation failure. The sooner the repair is done, the better. Foundation failure is usually caused by the constant changing of the moisture content in the soil beneath the foundation.
When soil gets too saturated, it will heave and when it is dry, it will shrink and create voids beneath the foundation. This constant shifting of the soil also causes your foundation to shift and move. This creates foundation problems and foundation failure. It is important to have an expert come and inspect your home that has the knowledge and experience in foundation repair. The professionals at Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry can help.
Solutions for Sloped and Uneven Floors
If Reliable Waterproofing & Masonry inspects your sloped and uneven floors and finds that it is caused by foundation failure, we have the foundation repair solutions for you. We use underpinning products such as helical piers and steel push piers to repair your foundation. These piers are driven deep into the ground through unstable soil layers until they reach a more solid soil layer. Each pier is individually load tested to assure that they can handle the weight of the structure. After installation, the entire weight of the structure is transferred onto the piers to lift and stabilize it. Your foundation will be back to its original level and structurally sound again.
The products we use are manufactured by Earth Contact Products, the very best in the industry. Your foundation repair will last for many years to come.
