“Pier & Beam” or “Block & Base Houses” settle and crack because the wooden beam foundation at the base is unable to support the structure. Structural integrity can be affected do to age, weather, and moisture or termite damage. The shrinking and swelling of soil due to drought or increased moisture can cause the house to shift and move. If you have drywall cracks, sticking doors or windows that won’t shut and lock you may need your house leveled.We begin with an inspection under the house so our technicians can assess the condition of the beams and the concrete block bases that support the structure. If the house needs leveling then the supporting concrete blocks are re-leveled first, then any rotten beams are replaced. Once these two steps are completed the house is gradually lifted to its original line of construction. Continue Reading >>

Many times foundation problems are directly linked to plumbing leaks. The constant moisture from a leak, combined with expansive soils, is a recipe for foundation problems. This is usually an issue with older homes due to cast iron plumbing. Many houses built prior to 1960 had cast iron sewer piping through and under the foundation. The cast iron piping corrodes over time unlike the more modern PVC plumbing. Once a leak starts from a corroded pipe, it increases the moisture level under the foundation, thus, resulting in expansive soils moving the slab. Once the slab moves, it will sometimes break additional pipes resulting in more problems. Continue Reading >>
