The CAUSES of Foundation Settlement


 

Evaporation

Hot and dry conditions may cause soil to pull away from the foundation. Settlement due to this foundation moisture imbalance could cause cracks to appear throughout the structure.

Transpiration

Tree roots could dehydrate the soil beneath a home causing soil shrinkage.

Site Preparation

Cut and fill situations, where soil is removed from part of the building site and stacked on another, needs proper soil stabilization before a structure is built; otherwise unexpected movements of the soil beneath the foundation may occur.

Drainage

Improper drainage will lead to excess moisture build up, which could erode or consolidate soils. Excessive moisture may cause heaving of expansive soils.

Plumbing Leaks

Water from leaky plumbing is often a major contributor to foundation problems including heaving.

Our Services

SEMO Mudjacking & Piering offers much more than just mudjacking and piering.

Mudjacking

Mudjacking is the process used to raise sunken concrete back to its original level. Mudjacking can be used to repair good slabs of concrete around your home instead of tearing them out and re-pouring them, usually at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Small holes are drilled into the sunken slab and a grout-type of material is pumped under the slab through the small holes. The material fills any void and then lifts the slab back into position. The holes are patched with cement and the surface is ready to use.

Piering

Piering offers a less expensive, long-life alternative to traditional remedies for foundation problems. Support piers integrate with your existing structure to provide the essential support that prevents any additional settlement, without the invasive, time-consuming and expensive process of building an entirely new foundation. Support piers are driven down to load-bearing strata or bedrock, providing the stable support that long-life foundations require.
