WHAT CAUSES FOUNDATION PROBLEMS?
Most foundation problems are caused by water and time. Unfortunately, no matter how well-kept your home is, you will eventually have to deal with minor or significant foundation issues.
Water can find its way into your foundation in so many ways ranging from poor drainage to the expansiveness of the clay surrounding your home. Often unstable soils are found around your home; whenever they move, the foundation moves. Since soil movements and contractions are rarely uniform, this shifting will harm any foundation, including those on slabs or piers.
Many long-term problems arise from structural damage. Your home will lose value for starters, equipment and electricity may malfunction, unseemly cracks form within your home, and if the structural concerns are bad enough, your home may become unlivable. Therefore, the longer you wait, the more dangerous and expensive the foundation issues become.
HOW DOES KEFFICIENT HANDLE YOUR HOME’S FOUNDATION PROBLEMS?
At Kefficient, we use only the best tools to resolve your foundation problems. For example, our I-Beams and Carbon Strips provide the stability needed to keep bowing and leaning walls in place so that they return to their stable positions.
Before we start with solutions, we always look to define the problem. During our FREE consultations, we take note of the various unseen and seen issues. We look at cracks on the wall, sliding of window panes, and so on to determine where the structural damage is coming from and the best way to solve it.
Once we determine the problem, we discuss the solution with you. Our technicians are here to educate, not sell services you don’t need. We are responsive and professional so that you can easily ask the right questions and determine the best course of action for your home. We also offer financing options to help pay for repairs so that you can resolve foundation issues sooner rather than later.
Lastly, we will also advise you on any preventative measures after we solve an issue. For example, if we see that flooding has created your current foundation issues, we’ll suggest drainage and sump pump systems.
Whether your home is experiencing structural damage from foundation settlement, hydrostatic pressure, soil washout, frost, or some other force, Kefficient delivers permanent, long-term solutions to your foundation problems.
