Crack Repair

Foundation Cracks

Procrastination with foundation crack repair is really not a good thing to do. The experts at American Foundation & Basement Repairs, LLC are here to provide you with crack repair services. The cracks inside your foundation are something which might have an impact on the very integrity of the primary support of your house. You shouldn't neglect these cracks, as even little ones could be the indication of future issues that are yet to come. We have been providing crack repair solutions to the Knoxville, Chattanooga, Asheville, Johnson City, and Cookeville areas for over 20 years and are here to help you.

Usually, these cracks can be brought on by the changing weather patterns, such as the changeover from summer to spring, or even the concrete foundation stressing, expanding, and contracting because of the changing elements. Pressure from your home moving may also trigger small cracks in the foundation to develop as time passes. In some situations, water leaks, bad plumbing, soil movement and even pest or bug infestation could possibly be the culprit.

Ignoring Cracks Can Be Costly

If you see wall cracks developing in your foundation, don't neglect them; that's the very last thing that you ever want to do. Contact American Foundation and have one of our highly trained technicians inspect your home and evaluate your foundation cracks and give you a free estimate. By doing this, you are able to handle any cracks before they spread out of control and cost you even more cash.

Solutions Depend On The Problem

Slab Cracks

Depending on what kind of problem you are experiencing with the concrete surfaces around your home, will determine what kind of solution we provide for you. If the cracks are caused from foundation settlement involving poor or unfavorable soil conditions around your home, then we can install foundation piers. The piers are easily installed and are able to transfer the weight of the foundation off of the weakened base and onto themselves. If the cracks are on the basement floor and simply caused from the natural shrinking and curing process of concrete, then we can install slab piers to take care of the problem. We will be able to come up with a solution after our techs have thoroughly evaluated the situation.

Get Foundation Piers For Sinking Foundation Cracks

Foundation piers are installed deep within the earth in stable, load-bearing strata. The piers' job is to support the weight of the home so that it isn't resting on a weakened base - what initially caused the foundation cracks to develop. Eventually, the home will be stabilized and you will no longer have to worry about any additional settling of the foundation. We can also fix the cracks that have developed with the use of our shotcrete materials. You won't have to every worry about these cracks letting water seep into the basement of your home where additional damage could be done.

Get Slab Piers For Basement Floor Cracks

When you have basement floor cracks, this is likely caused from the normal shrinking and curing process involved with concrete, or it may be caused from hydrostatic pressure beneath the home that is caused from a rising and falling water table. When this happens, we will need to take care of the initial cause of the problem and stabilize your basement floor with the use of slab piers. Our piers can quickly be installed and they will be able to strengthen and support your flooring surface. The cracks will be filled in, as well, so that they don't let seepage inside.
