Foundation settlement and movement are costly occurrences that can happen to any foundation, home or commercial building. ConcreteNetwork.com has recently updated its foundation information to include today’s most innovative techniques in foundation repair, along with a host of other resources.
Broken up into several manageable sections, the site covers causes and signs of foundation failure, methods for repairing sunken concrete including piering and slabjacking, typical repair costs and other related information.
Foundation settlement and movement requiring foundation repair can be caused by building on a number of unsuitable soils, including expansive clay, and compressible or improperly compacted fill soils. A problem can also form because of improper maintenance around foundations.
Whatever the cause, settlement can destroy the value of structures and even render them unsafe. It’s important to hire a professional contractor to properly assess the property damage and determine the right course of action. Under its list of other resources, the site offers a directory of qualified foundation repair contractors for consumers.
