Foundation cracks from slab settlement can affect new and old structures alike. Whether you are dealing with a sinking slab in your basement, garage, driveway, or patio, a common solution to repairing sunken concrete is to demolish and replace the entire slab. This method can be costly and time-consuming. Applying OxPoly®, a concrete-lifting technique is a cost-effective, expedient, and less disruptive alternative that offers numerous advantages over other common slab raising methods.

We truly want this to be the only time you will ever have to worry about your compromised foundation again.

Here are some common foundation issues faced in Alabama

EXTREMITIES IN WEATHER!!!

High amounts of Rain followed by Droughts cause clay soils to expand and contract. The elastic clay soil that is prevalent in Alabama begin to compromise the structural integrity of the soil below your foundation. Cracks begin to appear in the brick, block, sheetrock, ceilings, as well as in your driveways and sidewalks.

Transpiration

Tree roots can dehydrate the soil beneath the foundation and cause shrinkage, which creates foundation issues. Tree roots can also grow beneath existing driveways and structures, which will cause a heaving effect that lifts the concrete at the surface.

Plumbing leaks

Water from leaky plumbing pipes often is a major contributor to foundation problems. This contributes to heaving and effervescence at the surfaces that will become noticeable around the affected area, causing damage to your foundation. 

Drainage

Improper drainage will lead to excess moisture build-up, which can erode or consolidate soils. Excessive moisture may cause the heaving of expansive clay soils beneath your home or walkways. This will lead to concrete cracks at the surface.

Site Preparation

Cut and fill situations, where the soil is removed from part of the building site and stacked in another area, need proper soil stabilization before a structure is built. If not, unexpected movements of the soils beneath the foundation may occur.

Original Waterproofing FAILS

Over time the original exterior waterproofing system FAILS. The footing drain gets clogged up with roots or mud and silt. Erosion of the soils causes deterioration of the waterproof coating on the exterior of the block. There is no way to provide a long term solution with all of these environmental factors.
