All Your Foundation Repair Needs In Abilene, Texas
Avoid Disastrous Consequences By Consulting With An Expert
Abilene is a flourishing community in both Taylor and Jones County, Texas. It’s home to almost 130,000 residents, many of whom are homeowners. If you’re one of them, you may have concerns about what to do when you have foundation problems. You can avoid disastrous consequences by consulting with a home leveling expert, like Childers Brothers. But first, you will need to identify the specific problem that is affecting your foundation.
There Is No One-Size-Fits-All Solution
Foundations are not created equally, and this means their problems are not either. The problems you are having may not be the same as the family across town. Because of this, there is no one-size-fits-all solution to fixing foundation issues.
Problems can range from soil expansion to bowing piers and beams to cracking basement walls. Some companies will try to make your problems fit into the framework of their solution instead of making a solution to fit your needs. At the end of the day, this works in their favor, not yours.
Childers Brothers Has You Covered
With Every Type Of Home Leveling Solution
We begin our process with a 27-Point Analysis and use science-based solutions to get to the bottom of your foundation troubles. We know that foundation problems aren’t all created equally, which is why we offer a wide variety of services to fit every need.
Helical Pier Installation
Our helical pier installation process is state-of-the-art. It offers a long-term solution to your sunken foundation. We use specialized equipment to essentially screw the pier down into the earth until it reaches the solid soil strata below your home. We attach our proprietary brackets to the foundation and lift it with a jack. Once it’s in the correct spot, we secure it to the brackets, permanently transferring the load to the soil strata.
Because there are so many reasons you could need foundation repair, we start off with a 27-Point Analysis to determine the root cause of your problems. Once we know what the problem is, our team of experts will step in and solve all of your foundation issues. These experts are trained in helical piers, pier and beam installation, basement stabilization, and soil stabilization.
Our soil stabilization methods are highly regarded and considered the best long-lasting solution to soil expansion problems. We are the only company in the entire state of Texas that offers these specific services.
Water is attracted to negative charges within the clay. We inject the clay with EcSS 3000, which reduces the percentage of negative particles in the clay. The effects of EcSS 3000 have been scientifically proven by Texas A&M, Penn State, and Oklahoma State University.
When it comes to basement stabilization, two of our most common methods of repair are installation of H-beams and carbon fiber sheets.
- H-Beams: H-Beams are a non-intrusive solution to cracked or bowing basement walls. They are constructed from high-grade and rust-resistant steel. This steel can be regularly tightened to continuously provide stabilization for your basement for years to come.
- Carbon Fiber Sheets: Carbon fiber sheets are a cost-effective solution to basement stabilization. They are installed directly over basement walls, including over the cracks, to strengthen them. These sheets are scientifically proven to be stronger than steel and will prevent further foundation damage upon installation.
Epoxy Crack Repair
When it comes to epoxy crack repair, we only use the materials from the best epoxy manufacturers. It is quick, affordable, and the least intrusive foundation repair method. The quicker you have the cracks in your walls, floors, or foundation repaired, the cheaper your project will be, and the faster you will minimize crack growth. Our team of experienced technicians can also put down preventative epoxy around areas that are typically susceptible to damage.
Pier And Beam Adjustment
When you are facing crawl space problems, we offer excellent pier and beam adjustment services. We can adjust the piers and beams according to whether the foundation has heaved or settled. This will ensure that each beam is holding the appropriate weight load. We recommend that you adjust your piers and beams at least every two to four years to maintain your foundation.
While concrete is strong, it is not impermeable. For this reason, many homeowners decide to employ a concrete coating. Without this protective coating, your concrete can take on water that can cause swelling, cracking, and crumbling. We offer a polyurea concrete coating that features a quick curing process, resistance to UV rays, and a wide variety of colors.
Signs That Your Abilene Foundation Might Be Failing
When your foundation settles, you won’t notice anything extreme. You’ll need to be on the lookout for subtle signs that include the following:
- Sagging or slanted floors
- Cabinets, counters, window or door frames pulling apart from the walls
- Cracks in your foundation walls
- Cracks above your windows and doors
- Difficulty opening and closing windows and doors
Once you’ve identified signs of foundation problems, you’ll need to identify exactly what’s going on. Not all problems are created equally and therefore require different solutions. Some of the problems your foundation may be suffering from include settling or sinking, unstable soil, bowing piers or beams, and sinking or poorly mixed concrete.
To ensure your foundation repair lasts as long as you live in your home, you’ll want to choose the right solution and the right team to apply it.
