There are generally two different types of foundation for your home, the first being a poured concrete foundation, and the other being a slab foundation. Slab foundations are generally laid on top of the surface ground with the home built atop that. This layered approach can have its benefits depending on the ground beneath, but still faces the same dangers and potential damages as a poured concrete version. For the right repairs for your slab foundation, call Oakland Structural Repair to enlist our specialized and professional service.
Knowing the status of your foundation at all times is important, and yet often too easy to overlook. If you feel that there has recently been some issues with your foundation, then having the attention and opinion of an experienced professional can be highly beneficial. Oakland Structural Repair provides you with thorough and attentive inspections that will ensure that every aspect of your slab foundation is taken into account. Afterward, a detailed assessment of your foundation will be provided to you, ensuring that you are fully aware of the status of your foundation and any repair suggestions that may be offered.
Much the same process as concrete lifting, slab jacking gives you the ability to treat issues of broken or falling sections of your foundation slab close to the edge or center. Using a drill on the lowered piece, a hole is punched through the slab, and concrete poured into the underside, to life up the fallen portion of the slab, and bring it back into line with the rest of the foundation. This measure works to even out your foundation slab, and also reinforce the strength it possesses. Oakland Structural Repair brings you professional slab jacking for your home foundation.
Slab piering works by adding intermittent braces along the concrete slab of your foundation. By raising or lowering any of these piers, you can even out the slab. This is a great method of treatment if the ground underneath your home is prone to shifting, or if your particular area is prone to earthquakes. The continuous ability to fine tune the level on which your slab rests gives you the means to always be able to adjust your foundation properly. Oakland Structural Repair brings you a professional installation method for this treatment of your Oakland home foundation slab.
Much like any other foundation, a slab foundation still requires waterproofing treatments if the area is prone to collecting water. We bring you the same methods in treating your slab foundation as we do any other. With quality products and methods, we bring you a means to ensure that your foundation is continually protected from any outside water sources, and that your foundation has the best possible means to operate to its full potential for many more years to come. For all your concrete slab foundation needs in the Oakland area, we invite you to call Oakland Structural Repair at your earliest convenience.
