Here Are Some Common Signs That You Might Require Slab Lifting Services at Your Colorado Springs, CO, Home
Have you wondered whether you might require slab lifting services to address an uneven foundation at your Colorado Springs, Colorado, home? At Childers Brothers, we understand that foundation repair issues can be very intimidating. That’s why we’ve put together the following list of signs of an unlevel foundation — because we want to ensure that you’re fully prepared to address any potential issues with the foundation of your home.
Signs Inside Your Home
Many homeowners first become alerted to foundation leveling issues, as well as the need for slab lifting services, because of signs they notice within their home. If your foundation is unlevel, it can cause cracks to form in your interior walls, ceilings, and floors. You may find that you have trouble opening and closing doors and windows, which will appear to be stuck. You might also notice gaps around the perimeter of your doors and windows, or even sloping floors.
Signs Outside Your Home
An unlevel foundation can cause issues outside the home, as well. If you walk around the perimeter of your home, you may be able to see cracks in the foundation or in brick walls. You might also notice signs of soil separation or water ponding around the foundation’s exterior. Your chimney may also appear to be leaning to one side.
Our Slab Lifting Services
If it turns out that the foundation of your home is unlevel, you can rest easy knowing that Childers Brothers offers slab lifting services to address the problem. We use an innovative structural foam material to raise concrete slabs back into place. After drilling small holes into a sunken slab, we use those holes to pump structural foam beneath the slab, thereby lifting the slab back to its correct position. We finish by sealing the drilled holes and cleaning up the jobsite.
If you’re concerned that the foundation might be sinking at your Colorado Springs, CO, home, please contact Childers Brothers today. We’ll be happy to provide you with additional information about our slab lifting technology, answer your questions, and help you schedule an in-home consultation with one of our foundation repair experts.
