Merriam, Kansas

foundation repair Merriam KansasDo you notice foundation cracks wider than 1/4 inch? Hire Pro Foundation Technology to inspect your foundation and the soil around your home. The most common cause of settling foundations is water. As water accumulates in the soil, it surrounds the foundation and expands around your foundation. This creates pressure against the foundation walls and footings, causing cracks and settlement to appear.

Homeowners can help prevent foundation problems by taking these preventative measures:

  1. Check gutters and downspouts to make sure they are free of debris and leaves.
  2. The soil around your foundation should be properly graded and slope at least 6 inches away from the foundation.
  3. Repair minor hairline cracks so they won’t widen over time.
  4. Maintain consistent moisture levels by keeping the ground moist, but avoid overwatering the soil.
  5. Get annual plumbing inspections for water leaks.

These tips can help minimize the effects of expansive soils around your foundation. If you have serious foundation problems, such as bowing walls or wall cracks, contact Pro Foundation Technology. Inspect the interior and exterior of your home for other foundation issues such as:

  • Foundation cracks
  • Floor cracks
  • Ceiling cracks
  • Bowing or rotating walls
  • Crumbling, chipping or flaking foundation

If your home shows any of these signs, call Pro Foundation Technology. We can install helical piers or steel push piers to lift and support your settling foundation back to normal. Piers are installed deep into the soil to alleviate tension and stress due to foundation settlement.
