Despite what many homeowners believe, the home is not the only place that foundation problems can occur. The garage is also susceptible to foundation issues, such as foundation movement. Often, garages are constructed on concrete slab foundations. This means that they may experience such issues as foundation settlement or foundation cracks. This can lead to various structural problems in the rest of the garage. Fortunately, Foundation Repair Services provides the residents of Oklahoma and Arkansas with lasting solutions for all sorts of garage foundation problems.
There are several different types of foundation problems that can occur in garages. The most common of these problems are:
All of these are serious issues that should be repaired immediately. If you see any of these symptoms of foundation failure in your garage, contact the foundation experts at Foundation Repair Services immediately.
Because most garages are built on a concrete slab foundation, one solution for settlement is with polyjacking services. Polyjacking is the injection of a polyurethane foam injection beneath the slab, and is especially useful if the settling foundation is caused by void formation due to erosion or soil shrinkage.
In other cases, it may be necessary to install foundation piers such as helical piers or steel push piers. These piers are installed into the load bearing soils deep underground, Once installed, the weight of the structure is transferred onto the piers and they are used to lift the foundation to its original level. Though they both get the job done, there is one main difference between steel push piers and helical piers. Helical piers, unlike being driven into the ground like steel push piers, are screwed into the ground.
