Slab Foundation Repair For Your Charlotte Home?

November 16th, 2020

Well, a home is only as strong as its foundation. So, it's important to fix these problems as quickly as possible.

Typically, cracks in a slab foundation are the result of freezing water that has expanded in pipes beneath the cement. This can cause leaks and, in worst cases, damage to internal materials like doors, windows, and frames.

To fix slab foundation damage, a homeowner faces two different problems: fixing the pipe and fixing the foundation.

Fixing The Pipe

It wouldn't do any good to repair the slab foundation without first repairing the pipe. So, it's important to find the source of the leak and put a stop to it. Simply walk around the foundation until you discover where the leak is coming from and then mark the location. Then the flooring will need to be removed (but make sure this is done properly or you could cause more damage).

After removing the flooring, you can drill through the concrete, repair the pipe, cover it with concrete, and replace the flooring.

But we highly recommend hiring a professional to do this if you're inexperienced with major DIY home repairs!

Mud Jacking

Another option for slab foundation repair is called "mud jacking". This technique is effective for supporting the slab from underneath. The benefit of mud jacking is that it will also lift the slab to its original level. This is also the type of work to hire a professional for, so you don't end up with a worse problem.

But none of this is cheap. Repairing a slab foundation usually costs between $1,000 and $15,000 depending on the severity of the damage.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Finding a place you can call home can be a very lengthy and tiring process. For me, this was an important milestone in my life and I needed someone who not only understood my goal but also has the knowledge, experience and patience to help me reach this goal. Bright was very involved in the entire process; scheduling property visits, working with the financial institution, lawyer’s office, property inspectors, all the way to negotiating the property price down, etc. Having Bright on my side as a buyer made the process smooth and enjoyable for me, and I’d strongly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell a property.
