All Your Foundation Repair Needs In Abilene, Texas

Are You Seeing Signs of Foundation Failure? Consult With a Local Expert

No homeowner wants to find signs of foundation failure. If you suspect that your Abilene home has fallen victim to foundation failure, though, is to consult with a local home leveling and foundation repair expert.

At Childers Brothers, we are based in northwestern Texas and have been serving the region for 50 years. We know the local soil conditions and have an in-depth knowledge of what foundation problems have hit other homeowners near you. That is key, because you can’t properly fix a foundation problem until you know what is causing it.

There Is No One-Size-Fits-All Foundation Repair 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 walls, from misaligned piers and beams to a settling foundation. 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 Foundation Repair Solutions That Fit A Variety of Problems

We begin our process with a 27-Point Analysis and use science-based solutions to get to the bottom of your Abilene home’s foundation troubles.  We know that foundation problems aren’t all created equal, 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.

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.

Basement Stabilization

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.

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.

Epoxy Crack Repair

Cracked FoundationWhen 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.

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.

Concrete Leveling Services in Abilene

Along with our foundation repair services, Childers Brothers also offers precision concrete leveling using polyurethane foam. If your concrete has begun to sink and crack, creating tripping hazards and potentially drainage issues, we can lift and level your slab by injecting an expanding polyurethane foam under it.

This solution is far less expensive and intrusive than ripping up the concrete and laying a new slab.

Concrete Leveling can be used on the following surfaces and more

  • Sidewalks
  • Driveways
  • Patios
  • Porches
  • Garage Floors
  • Pool Decks
