Foundation Repair can eventually be necessary for a homeowner due to our extreme climate changes. Seasonal drying or drought-like conditions that sometimes occur in Houston and surrounding areas can cause the soil around your home to shrink. Excessive rain can make it swell. The shifting and moving of the ground below stresses the foundation and eventually cracks the slab.

We know your home is one of your top investments, and we are here to help insure the protection of that investment!

1. A Driven Concrete Pier
Solid concrete piers are driven to a point of refusal. Hydraulic jacks are then placed on concrete pads to level the foundation. The lift is then secured by blocks and shims.
2. A Pile Guard Pier
Hardened mold-formed polymer joint guards are used to connect concrete piles driven to a point of refusal. With these in place a positive alignment and interlock is assured for a lifetime-guaranteed repair.
Houston homeowners can help avoid foundation repairs by keeping their foundations damp. The easiest way to do this is to invest in soaker hoses that can be placed around your home’s foundation. Watering your foundation during dry or drought-like conditions can greatly decrease the chances of foundation problems.
