Mudjacking Services Can Help Your Odessa, TX Home Stand on More Solid Ground
Mudjacking is a service that Childers Brothers has provided for many Odessa, TX homeowners whose homes were experiencing the negative effects of inadequate soil. When the soil beneath a foundation is overly wet or dry, it can cause a wide array of negative effects for a structure that’s built on that soil. For instance, soil that does not have enough moisture might settle and cracks, causing the foundation above it to shift. This shifting can result in jammed doors or windows, cracked walls, and more.
Any home in Odessa that’s being affected by settling soil can possibly benefit from mudjacking. Homeowners who opt for this service can expect the following process:
- Holes are drilled on the failing foundation slabs
- Concrete, or a similarly powerful mixture, is injected into the empty spaces between the foundation slabs and shrunken soil
- The sinking foundation is raised back to its original height
- The drilled holes are patched up
In addition to addressing the issues caused by dry soil, mudjacking can also benefit homes that are affected by plumbing leaks, which can wash away the soil beneath a home’s foundation. This process can also address large root systems that can absorb the moisture of soil surrounding a home.
