What Should I Look For?
Keeping your concrete in good shape not only makes your property look good, but it also helps protect parts of your home’s foundation. A major concrete problem sign, cracked concrete causes water to seep into the soil around your home’s foundation, causing leaks and water damage in your basement or crawl space. Concrete lifting takes your cracked, sunken concrete and gives it a more appealing look, as if it weren’t even in need of repair or lifting in the first place.
Common Concrete Problem Signs
When it comes to damaged concrete, there are obvious concrete lifting problem signs that you can observe to show if your home’s concrete needs repair. Cracks, sunken in slabs, and unevenness are all signs that you need to contact a concrete lifting professional like JES Foundation Repair to assess and fix the damage.
Slab Foundation Cracks
Many homeowners may assume that cracks in their slab foundation are just a natural occurrence; however, this is not the case. Cracks in your slab foundation can indicate that your foundation is settling. You may also notice excess water, which can weigh so much that it put substantial pressure on your home.
It can take a while for many homeowners to notice that their concrete is sinking and becoming uneven, with most homeowners only noticing the problem when it is much worse. Uneven, sunken concrete should be lifted by a professional before any additional damage can occur to the home’s foundation and unaffected concrete.
Patio and Porch Cracks
Homeowners typically opt for sturdy porches and patios, making concrete the most chosen construction material. While it is durable, concrete is not exempt from cracks and breaks. Your concrete patio and porch might need repair if there are cracks, uneven slabs, and disjointed steps.
