Floor Crack Repair

Cracked Concrete Slab

American Foundation & Basement Repairs, LLC offers floor crack repair services to help keep your foundation functioning as it should If you notice cracks along the flooring of your basement, you can most likely blame foundation problems for the issues and you will need floor crack repair services as soon as possible in your home.

It's never smart to just ignore these foundation problems. Like so many other things in your life, they're not going to repair themselves--floor cracks will expand as time passes and you could experience water seepage. You need to take steps to stop whatever is causing the shrinkage which is weakening your foundation. We have been repairing foundations in the Knoxville, Chattanooga, Asheville, Johnson City, and Cookeville areas for over 20 years. If you do not care for these foundation problems when you first notice them, they are only going to get worse.

Concrete slab foundation settlement is usually the result of changes in moisture content and density of the soils underneath the slab. For example, soils under a concrete slab may dry and shrink as time passes because of extended drought-like conditions or leaking HVAC systems. Loosely compacted fill soils may also combine under a slab leading to floor cracks, tripping hazards and other cracking and settling all through a home or building.

These conditions and others, develop a gap beneath a slab. If the slab isn't sufficiently strong enough to span the gap, the slab will crack, break, and settle into the emptiness.
