Are Foundation Cracks Normal?

Concrete Foundation Waterproofing“Home owners don’t panic. Some foundation cracks are normal” says Fred Marshall, owner of Advanced Foundation Repair a Texas foundation repair company. Foundations often have cracks, even new foundations. Newly laid foundations develop cracks often caused by the concrete hardening or curing process. As concrete cures, it shrinks. Such cracks in newly formed slabs are called shrinkage cracks.

Then there are seasonal cracks. August is Fort Worth, Texas’ hottest and driest month. The ground starts to crack and then homeowners start noticing additional foundation cracks. Cracks that are more than an 8th of an inch wide usually mean that the foundation has been bent. This may be a sign of foundation problems in which case it may be time to call for a foundation repair free estimate.

 

In the Fort Worth Area, Do Root Barriers Help Foundations?

In the Fort Worth Area, Do Root Barriers Help Foundations?Absolutely foundation root barriers help deter damage from trees as well as excess water. Advanced installs root barriers made of a three-layer plastic membrane.  The second and third layers give extra protection against penetration by roots and make the membrane tougher.  By using a tough plastic membrane that is water proof, Advanced’s root barriers have the added benefit of acting as moisture barriers.

Depending on the type of root battier installed that can last several years to indefinitely. Root barriers made of concrete or plastic will last indefinitely.  Chemical root barriers last from 5 years upwards.  The life of a chemical barrier is strongly influenced by the amount of water that falls on or flows through the treated soil.

Tunneling Under a Foundation Slabs vs Cutting Through Slabs

Under Slab TunnelingAdvanced uses under stab tunneling because it is less disruptive to everyday life while maintaining the foundation integrity. It is used to gain access to what runs under your home such as pipes, ducts and foundation piers without having to break a hole in your floor.  Nice!

When the job is done, Advanced carts off dirt from the tunnel and tunnels are closed. Generally, tunnels are as long as needed to reach under your home, and measure 3 feet by 3 feet in cross section. Tunnels are connected to a drainage system used to keep water from accumulating under your home.  Tunnels should be left unfilled to facilitate any future plumbing repairs (after all having gone through the expense of digging tunnels, you might as well get full advantage of them) or foundation warranty work.

I can't too highly recommend this company. I had work done of my foundation by another company several years ago. That work did not resolve the problem, and that company did not fix. Advanced was recommended to me by mother, who said they were the best in the business. I agree! They were polite, professional, charged reasonable prices, and did excellent work. They also have a strong guarantee that is backed by a trust. I can't imagine why you'd use any other company.read more

Advanced Foundation repair is the only way to go! The engineer, Eric was kind, helpful and informative! The crew under Haynard's watch was unbelievably considerate. The crew was in and out of our house for 5 days. Everyone of them were happy even in the 90 degree weather. They work hard and were very polite. If you saw my house now you would never even know they were here. They cleaned up every night and on the last day it looked like new! Very thankful to have been able to work with them.read more

Advanced recently performed our foundation repair and did a fantastic job! The job took four days and throughout the process, the workers were on time each day, were kind and courteous. They left our house clean each day and took great care in making my wife and newborn comfortable during the repair. They came back out to make adjustments, as was expected, and I am more than pleased with the results. Thanks to Juan Martinez, Miguel Mata and Ernesto Alvarato for doing everything I requested. I highly recommend Advanced Foundation Repair, they know what they are doing.read more
