Slab Foundation Repair

Slab foundations are a thick slab of concrete that is poured on top of soil and reinforced with rebar throughout to give homes the support they need. There are a variety of ways that a slab foundation can fail, and Zac-Tex Foundation Repair can handle each and every one of them. Here are some of the most common problems that cause slab foundations to fail.

Foundation Heaving

When a slab foundation is laid on clay soil and there is an increase in the amount of water in that soil, it can cause areas of your foundation to rise. This is the exact opposite of settlement and can cause cupboards and countertops to no longer be level in the home.

Vertical & Horizontal Foundation Cracks

If there are any cracks larger than 1/16th of an inch in your foundation, you have a problem. You can call on the foundation specialists at Zac-Tex Foundation Repair to inspect the situation and let you know how severe the problem you are facing is. We can assist you in taking the appropriate measures necessary to avoid the crack getting worse.

House Settling

In the first 10 years or so after your home is built, you can expect to see a certain amount of settling. Sometimes, this settling can cause problems for your foundation though. If you have doors or windows that stick, you could have a problem as well as cracks in the walls or bricks of your home.

Improper Foundation Design

During the construction of your home, if the foundation was poorly designed or the soil wasn’t properly prepared before construction started, you may be facing improper design.
