Doors that stick or cracks that appear in walls are most often signs that you are in need of a foundation repair.
Interior floors like basements and garages often see the same settling issues as foundations and driveways.
Porches and stairs are built on a narrow footprint directly against the foundation of your home and may settle and tilt leaving an uneven surface.
Pool decks are frequently prone to settling. Our repairs can correct this for concrete, vinyl, and fiberglass pools.
We DO NOT replace concrete.
We DO NOT make cracks go away.
We DO NOT caulk or fill cracks.
We DO NOT patch surface deterioration.
We CAN NOT lift asphalt (blacktop).
Over time, the fill beneath a concrete slab erodes or settles due to poor compaction during construction, causing the slab to lose stability and settle. Concrete Lifting is the process of injecting a material underneath settled or unstable slabs to raise and support them. It is faster, cleaner, less invasive and less expensive than replacing concrete. It is a repair that will outlast the life of your concrete, but is easily excavatable when the time comes to replace the slab.
Concrete Jack uses both the conventional slab jacking and the more modern foam jacking processes for lifting and stabilizing just about any flat concrete slab including sidewalks, interior floors, driveways, Pool decks, porches and more. Either process can be used to permanently lift and stabilize your settled concrete slabs. The injection of the material is a highly controlled process and our crew leaders have years of installation experience, so the risk of over-lifting or damaging a slab is negligible.
Our experienced estimators will be able to evaluate your situation and recommend the most appropriate repair method for you based on the size, shape and condition of your slabs. We have successfully completed hundreds of projects for customers in the Mid-Atlantic region and we hope to have the opportunity to assist you.
Concrete Jack’s foundation repair solutions are engineered to repair your foundation using the most effective, proven methods possible. Concrete Jack’s foundation repair experts perform foundation repair by installing helical piles and push piers (also called underpinning), injecting high density polyurethane under sinking interior floors and performing chemical grouting to mitigate some of the causes of foundation settlement.There are many conditions that cause foundation problems that necessitate foundation repair. These range from soil problems and erosion, geological formations completely out of anyone’s control and utility failures. Our foundation repair estimators are experts at identifying the causes of your foundation’s failure. In the case of unusual failures, we can point you in the direction of Geotechnical Engineers who can provide further analysis of the problems in the soil below your foundation. Concrete Jack offers payment options for most foundation repair projects and 25 year warranties (lifetime of product) for our helical and push pier repairs.
Foundation repair isn’t something you should make an immediate decision about while talking to a salesman at your kitchen table. When you request a foundation repair estimate from Concrete Jack, one of our non-commissioned, hourly estimators will visit your property to assess and measure your foundation. Using the information gathered, the estimator will design an appropriate foundation repair that best suits your situation. The repair design process usually takes a few days, after which we will provide you with a written quote.
If you choose, you may have the proposed foundation repairs reviewed by a licensed structural engineer. Review by a licensed structural engineer is generally not required within our service area, but you may choose to have plans reviewed at your expense. We can put you in touch with licensed structural engineers we have worked with in the past, or you may find one of your choosing.
