What You Need To Know About Your Foundation

Causes of Foundation Settlement

  • Houston's clay soil under your foundation expands and contracts with the seasons, causing stress on your foundation.

  • Tree roots and vegetation surrounding your home can infiltrate your concrete slab and suck necessary moisture out of the soil.

  • Older plumbing and drainage pipes can rust and burst, creating a constant stream of water damage to your home.

  • The humidity and moisture on the Gulf Coast can cause your soil to shift, creating leveling issues on your foundation.

Innovative Repair Techniques

We employ a variety of foundation repair methods, choosing the most appropriate one based on the specific issues and the underlying causes:

  1. Piering and Underpinning: This method is particularly effective in Houston's expansive clay soils. It involves using steel or concrete piers driven deep into the soil to stabilize the foundation. This method is renowned for its effectiveness in correcting significant settlement and instability issues. Both helical piers and push piers are commonly used, depending on the specific conditions and needs of the building​ (Concrete Network)​​ (Architecture Lab).

  2. Slab Jacking (Mudjacking): Slab jacking is a less invasive method that lifts a sunken concrete slab back to its original level by pumping a cementitious mixture beneath the slab. This method is ideal for addressing smaller areas of sinking or tilting concrete, such as walkways or driveways, and is effective in the often shifting local soil conditions of Houston. (Architecture Lab)

  3. Sealants and Masonry Patches: For minor cracks and early signs of damage, using sealants and masonry patches can be an effective preventative measure. This method involves filling cracks with epoxy or polyurethane foam to prevent water infiltration and further deterioration. It's a cost-effective solution for early-stage foundation issues​ (Inspectapedia)​​(Architecture Lab)​​.

  4. Polyurethane Foam Injection: Similar to mudjacking, this method involves injecting polyurethane foam into the foundation cracks or beneath the concrete slabs. The foam expands, filling in voids and lifting the concrete back to level. It's known for its durability and minimal invasiveness​ (Inspectapedia)​​​.
