- We use the most up to date laser levels to see which areas need to get raised first, which need to get raised together, and which have risen too high.
- Shield Foundation Repair knows that raising sections of a home out of order, or against the needs of the home, can result in catastrophic damage.
- A sinking foundation is only one of the many foundation issues including foundation cracks or foundation upheaval that can get extensive and more dangerous with time if neglected.
- Some soil types undergo contraction when the surrounding area is dry. This is because the soil loses water molecules and dries out, causing the constituents of the soil to shrink and creating spaces between the soil particles. If the soil is of a type that undergoes major contractions due to decreases in water levels (clay soil for example) it will cause the foundation to sink.
Removing & Replacing Foundation Walls/FloorsSometimes foundations are beyond repair. This could be a result of a vehicle collision, fire, years of neglect or simply age of the concrete. Otherwise a foundation is replaced to provide the homeowner with a larger footprint, more headroom, or home renovation. In many cases the homeowner is still able to live in their home will the foundation wall is being replaced.
