Mudjacking Company – 63065
Foundation repair for someone's home is frequently only looked at in times of an emergency. The home owner could be sitting in his or her living room area when they notice a crack in the wall, or in more serious situations, they see a big crack in the bricks on the exterior of the house. This is worrisome to say the least.
Often one's home is their most expensive investment. Sometimes foundation problems are discovered upon the home owner wanting to sell the property and the buyer has hired an independent home inspector. Time and money are even more vital because the owner is trying to sell his/her home quickly while making enough for a deposit on another home.
How can you fix foundation troubles? Some get in touch with professionals and some do it on their own. We propose using the professional mudjacking services of our company simply because we use a number of techniques and methods. Mudjacking is one process used by foundation experts to repair foundation issues. There are 2 methods of this this technique: filling the void and raising the interior floor surfaces.
Filling the Void
Quite often, foundation problems in certain parts of Mapaville, Missouri 63065 are the result of the perimeter of the foundation settling. When constructing a home, concrete piers usually are set up underneath the perimeter grade beam. The first attempt to repair the problem is by using industry tools to return the house to its original location. Following the readjustment, a void is usually created beneath the main slab.
We then use a "mudjacking" technique to fill up this emptiness. This is accomplished by drilling 2" divots through the perimeter grade beam surrounding the home and pumping a mixture of soil and cement grout into the void. Then the holes are filled with a fluid blend of soil/cement grout.
Raise Interior Floors
In other cases, the inside area of the slab may have settled. Mudjacking is used to boost interior floors and is achieved from inside of your home by drilling 2" holes through the slab in the areas that have settled and pumping a blend of soil/cement grout under the foundation. This process uses a stiff mix of soil/cement grout and is often associated with more complex foundation problems.
Even though it sounds simple enough, this is a fragile and involved procedure to do correctly. Being familiar with the common land issues around the area and through comprehensive experience, the process may become second nature to seasoned professionals from Mid America Piering.
