Underpinning Slab Foundations Long Beach Island, NJ
Why we need foundation repair?
A foundation can have large cracks or be made of concrete that is not only brittle on the surface but can be scraped right through with a common screwdriver.
Poor maintenance: The lifespan of a concrete structure is normally long, but it has an end. A century old house should be subject to audit.
Water erosion: Infiltrations can eat away at concrete at strategic locations to destabilize the structure on which the weight of the building rests.
Inadequately backfilled land: Soil compaction may affect the foundation of a house erected on land with insufficient backfilling, inadequate compaction or inappropriate filling materials.
