Slab Lifting Could Help Reinforce the Foundation of Your Artesia, NM, Home
Homeowners interested in slab lifting services for their Artesia, New Mexico, properties will want to count on Childers Brothers. Since 1972, our family-operated, local company has been resolving the foundations issues of homeowners throughout the area. During this time, we have identified the most effective methods to resolve the common foundation problems brought on by the soils of this region. One of these methods is slab lifting, also known as mud jacking, slab jacking, and concrete leveling.
A foundation can begin sinking for several reasons, including soil settlement, which refers to when the soil beneath a foundation loses too much moisture and shrinks, leaving a gap between the soil and the foundation above it. In order to address an unsupported foundation, our foundation experts may recommend that homeowners in Artesia take advantage of slab lifting, a process that consists of:
- Drilling small holes through the affected concrete slabs
- Pumping a grout mixture or powerful foam through the holes and into the empty space between the soil and the foundation
- Sealing the holes and leaving the surrounding site undisturbed
Slab lifting is known for being a cost-effective and time-efficient process. Here at Childers Brothers, we’ll use our decades of experience to ensure that it’s done right. Additionally, if a homeowner prefers not to opt for the typical concrete mixture that’s used during mudjacking, we can provide them with alternatives, such as structural foam.
