What We Do Best: Lubbock Services

To help you find what you’re looking for, here’s a brief look at our core services in the Lubbock area and beyond.

Foundation Repair

We’ve been working with home foundations for decades, both in terms of new and existing structures. Through that experience, we know that not all foundation repair problems are alike and that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Helical piers, for instance, are exceptional when dealing with settlement-related foundation problems but might not be as effective in dealing with upheaval.

That is why we conduct a 27-point analysis to determine the precise problem affecting your foundation and how best to repair it. Some of the foundation repair solutions we offer include.

Helical Piers

Helical piers are the gold standard when it comes to foundation piering systems to combat a foundation that is sinking or settling. That is because they combine the strength to support the home with the versatility to handle different soil conditions and bedrock depths.

The piers can be drilled as deep as is needed and realtime readouts from our equipment can tell us precisely when it has reached a depth where it can support your home as well as leave a healthy margin of safety.

Soil Stabilization

Not all foundation problems come from settlement, however. Upheaval in the type of active soil that is prevalent in the Lubbock area can also cause some of the same problems as settlement.

In that case you need soil stabilization to substantially reduce the soil’s shrink-swell cycle. Our exclusive soil stabilizer does just that, helping prevent soil-based foundation upheaval for good. Clay particles have a tendency to bond with water molecules because of charges of the particles. By altering the soil to neutralize the charge of the particles, our stabilizer can nearly eliminate the moisture-based swelling that causes upheaval.

Foundation and Basement Wall Stabilization

Pooling water or swelling soil can cause the pressure pushing in on your basement foundation walls to increase. If this pressure gets too much, it will cause the walls to crack horizontally and bow inward.

If you notice horizontal cracks in your basement walls or if one starts to bow inward, contact a foundation repair specialist like Childers Brothers. If the problem is caught early enough, we can stabilize the wall with either carbon fiber sheeting or steel H-beams. Either of these solutions can prevent further cracking and bowing.

If the wall has bowed enough where it must be straightened as well as stabilized, however, the repair is more intrusive, requiring excavations around the outside of the affected wall.

Pier and Beam Repair and Adjustment

The different structure of a pier and beam or crawl space foundation requires different repair methods. Whether some of the piers or beams have been damaged and need replacing or the piers just need adjustment to bring them into alignment so each is properly supporting the beam above, Childers Brothers has the experience to ensure that the foundation continues to provide the needed structural support to the home above.

Concrete Leveling with Foam

Along with foundation repair, Childers Brothers also offers our polyurethane foam concrete lifting solutions in Lubbock.

When concrete slabs start to sink and settle unevenly, it places stress on the concrete, leading to both cracking and tripping hazards. By hydraulically lifting the slab back into place, our foam concrete leveling method can prolong the life of your concrete while also improving its look and functionality.

We drill a small hole into the slab and inject an expanding foam solution underneath it. As the foam expands, it not only lifts the slab but also fills any voids below the surface and compresses loose soil, solving some of the problems that can cause slabs to sink.

Concrete leveling can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including:

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

Epoxy Crack Repair

Not all cracks, even foundation cracks, are signs of major structural damage that require expensive fixes. Even these benign cracks, however, can cause other problems if large enough as water can seep into your home.

Our epoxy crack repair products are much stronger than the DIY kits you can buy at a chain home improvement store and provide more than cosmetic fixes. We make sure the epoxy is injected deep into the crack, both strengthening the area around the crack and sealing it off so water can’t get through.
