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.

This system consists of foundation piers and will supply the very best chance to re-level the floor and lift any kind of non-load bearing partition wall surfaces which may have settled together with the slab.
Tough steel pier supports are hydraulically driven through a heavy-duty slab bracket to get to competent, load-bearing strata.
The weight of your concrete slab floor is then very carefully moved from the original unstable soil, through the piers, to suitable soils down below.
