Slab Foundation Repair

The two common foundation types for homes in Texas are pier and beam or concrete slab. Each foundation type offers its own unique advantages and disadvantages. It’s important to understand your home’s foundation type so that it can be maintained and repaired as needed.

What is a Slab Foundation?

Slab Foundation Repair in AustinHomes with a slab foundation have concrete poured over a framework of reinforcing steel called a re-bar. A slab foundation repair involves “footers” or “beams.” These are trenches dug into the earth to increase stability. Many newer homes built since the late 1960s have a concrete slab foundation.

The advantage of a concrete slab foundation is that they are less susceptible to flooding, have fewer mold issues than homes with a crawl space, and are lower to the ground.

Slab Foundation Inspections

Slab foundations offer many advantages; however, there are issues that affect concrete slab foundations. Regular foundation inspections and quick repairs will help to keep a concrete foundation, and your home, in the best possible condition.

  • Soil: Due to moisture variations in Central Texas, the soil composition can fluctuate dramatically. It will expand and contract throughout the year and place stress on your home’s foundation.
  • Landscaping: Large tree roots can disrupt the foundation and also drain the moisture from the nearby soil causing the foundation to settle.
  • Plumbing: Issues with plumbing are one of the leading causes of foundation issues. Concrete slab foundations do not have a crawl space under the house; therefore reaching pipes under the house for repair is more difficult.
  • Drainage: Improper drainage considerations could have been made during construction

If you notice cracks in your foundation, sheetrock, bricks or floors, uneven window or door frames, bulging walls, or creaky or bouncy floors, it is vital to have a slab foundation repair expert out to inspect your home leveling and discuss your repair options.
