What Is Foundation Repair?

It is not the most fun investment to make, but foundation repair is important for the structure of your home. Occasionally, water that runs off the roof of a home gets absorbed into the soil around it. This causes the soil at the base of the home to expand, causing it to crack and weaken. Many people will think it can be fixed simply by filling in the cracks to avoid paying the high foundation repair costs. However, foundation repair is a much more in depth procedure. You need to take care of the main problem to fix it.

Methods Of Foundation Repair

There are many different foundation repair methods that can be used, and each company differs in their method of choice. The different types of foundation repair methods many professionals use today consist of the following:

  • Soil Injection - This method is nontoxic and water soluble. The chemical gets injected right into the ground underneath the foundation itself. This keeps the soil from absorbing water and swelling up around the home.
  • Steel/Concrete Pilings - These are simply placed underneath the house to raise it up and level it. Concrete can then be poured in to permanently seat the foundation.
