Having a level house is vital to keeping a house in its best condition so it can last a lifetime or more, and even the best built homes age over time. Settling occurs, and with that may come some problems that will need to be repaired. Sloping or sagging floors, cracks in your walls or above doors, or cracks in your ceiling may mean that your house will need to be leveled. You may also notice that doors or windows are not closing properly. If you notice any of these issues, it is important to have your home inspected. Rock Structure Repair will come out to assess your home and provide you with a free estimate.
Many homes are built with a pier and beam construction, which has been popular among builders for a long time. The advantages of this type of construction are that the elevation provides ease of access to the home’s plumbing and makes for great curb appeal. The disadvantage to this type of foundation is that when water gets under the house, it can cause damage to the piers and beams. Rock Structure Repair technicians can diagnose these problems and come up with the solution.
Piers and support beams can deteriorate over time if not properly maintained. Typically a pier may need to be replaced, and if you are replacing a pier you might need to replace a support beam. Rock Structure Repair can install new concrete piers and fix any rotted wood beams and joists. Sometimes the solution could be as simple as some basic shimming between the piers and beams. Stucco skirting can also be installed to help keep moisture out after it has been properly inspected for correct drainage.
Even if you have a typical concrete foundation, you still are not safe from having a sagging foundation. Rock Structure Repair can help you out with these types of foundation problems. When leveling a concrete foundation you have to be careful you do not do any further damage.
