Homeowners throughout Texas often encounter signs of foundation problems in their homes. These issues show up as cracks in walls, uneven floors or sticking doors and windows. These indicators prompt the need for foundation repair, which is crucial in maintaining the structural integrity of your house. 

The experts at G.L. Hunt Foundation Repair provide businesses and homeowners in Texas with long-lasting foundation solutions. 

Concrete Piers In Foundation Repair

Concrete piers are like the support beams of the foundation world — especially helpful for houses with slab foundations or shallow crawl spaces. That’s because these types of foundations are more prone to settling and shifting as Texas soils expand and contract. 

Choosing concrete piers is like giving your home a sturdy backbone, especially since the soil in Texas tends to shift. If your home is showing signs of settling or structural issues, don’t worry! Concrete piers — or as some call them, concrete pilings — are here to help! 

These are like the unsung heroes that step in to stabilize and support your home when it’s going through a bit of a tough time. Understanding how these concrete wonders work is essential for homeowners considering foundation repairs. Think of them as your home’s trusty sidekicks, ready to tackle settling issues and keep everything standing tall.

How Concrete Piers Work

Concrete piers operate by transferring the load of a structure to a stable stratum beneath problematic soil layers. This process involves digging holes into the ground beneath the foundation and filling them with reinforced concrete. This sturdy support system prevents further settling, lifts the foundation and ensures long-term stability.

Signs Your Foundation Needs Concrete Piers

If you’ve noticed indicators of foundation settlement, it’s crucial to pay attention to potential issues like visible cracks, uneven floors or doors that no longer align. These signs may suggest the need for concrete piers to address underlying foundation concerns. 

Here’s a more detailed look at the signs:

  • Visible cracks — Keep an eye out for cracks in your walls, especially those that appear around windows or doors.
  • Uneven floors — Noticeable slopes or irregularities in your flooring may indicate foundation settlement.
  • Misaligned doors — Doors that no longer align or have difficulty closing properly may signal foundation issues.

It’s essential for homeowners to remain vigilant to these signs and seek a professional assessment when considering foundation repair options. Early detection and appropriate measures can prevent further damage and maintain the integrity of your home’s foundation.

Benefits Of Using Concrete Piers In Foundation Repair

When you choose concrete piers, you’re not just fixing — you’re future-proofing. Say goodbye to worries about foundation stability and hello to a home that stands strong over time.

Concrete piers give your home’s structure a stability boost, acting as a sturdy support system for your foundation. Our services go further than an immediate fix — they help stop further damage in its tracks.

These piers go beyond fixing the immediate issues – they’re the unsung heroes that ensure your home stands strong for the long run.

Detect Foundation Movement Early

It may seem like you have to wait and hope that your foundation doesn’t shift under your feet, but that’s not the case! If you’re worried about foundation movement or settlement, you can leverage the power of SlabSure for peace of mind. SlabSure is an early detection system for any movement of your concrete slab. Sensors are installed on your foundation below the soil level at 10 foot increments. These sensors report any change in their position, giving you a real-time account of the stability of your slab.

What Is Foundation Repair?

Foundation repair involves the correction of structural issues within a building’s foundation. This can include addressing problems such as settling, cracks or unevenness. Common repair methods include underpinning, piering or slabjacking, which aim to stabilize and strengthen the foundation, ensuring the structural integrity of the entire building.

Professional assessment and timely repairs are crucial to prevent further damage and maintain your property’s value.

Can You Live In A House During Foundation Repair?

In many cases, residents can continue living in their homes during foundation repairs. However, the extent of the repairs and the specific construction methods employed can influence this.

Temporary inconveniences like noise, dust and restricted access to certain areas may be expected, but our reputable contractors will work to minimize disruptions to your daily life.

How Long Does Foundation Repair Take?

The duration of foundation repair depends on various factors, including the type and extent of the damage, the chosen repair method and the local climate. Minor repairs may take a few days, while more extensive projects could last several weeks.

It’s crucial to obtain a detailed timeline from your contractor during the assessment phase.

Should I Buy A House With Foundation Repair?

While it’s not uncommon to purchase a house with a history of foundation repair, it’s essential to assess the extent of the repairs. Obtain a detailed inspection report and consider consulting with a structural engineer to ensure the issues have been adequately addressed.

It’s advisable to proceed with caution and negotiate repairs or pricing accordingly.

Does Home Insurance Cover Foundation Repair?

Home insurance typically does not cover foundation repair caused by normal wear and tear. However, if the damage is a result of a covered peril — such as a sudden plumbing issue — your insurance may cover the repair costs.

It’s crucial to review your policy and consult with your insurance provider for specific details related to foundation repairs. You can also reach out to us for financing options!
