Foundation Support Services

Foundations are responsible for literally holding the whole structure up. Without a strong foundation, your house will sink to the ground.

While a properly built foundation will keep the house standing steady and well-supported no matter if a flood or an earthquake hits it.

While many companies only hide the pain, Zavza Seal prevents the foundation damages from returning. With our foundation support services, you can be confident that we will permanently remove any cracks or damages.

Importance of Foundation Support

Many property owners don’t give much thought to a home’s foundation until there is an issue. But long before that occurs, there are good reasons to consider investing in strengthening the foundation. Over time, property owners may have serious concerns about floods, wind-induced forces, and general soil erosion. Fortunately, you can solve most problems to avoid catastrophic failures.

Everything in a house is propped up by its foundation. It is meant to be the strong foundation that can resist anything. However, the foundation may move because of changes in the soil under it (floods and earthquakes are the most common reasons). Sometimes those alterations are too much for the foundation, and breaks occur. Moist soil rises up because of its upward expansion. This puts pressure on the concrete slab above. The concrete base becomes unsupported as the ground shrinks as dries up.

The integrity of the entire home may be jeopardized when changes and breaks occur. That is never a good thing, and fixing it would be expensive. Most pre-existing structures can be strengthened, which is good news for property owners. There are numerous ways to do this. However, it’s ideal for a structural engineer or a professional foundation support provider to offer tailored advice for your house.

Signs you need Foundation Support

Sometimes it can be hard to visualize the strain and force placed on a foundation. Most people rarely give any second though to the modifications they make to the structure—such as adding new walls, altering the layout, adding rooms, or controlling moisture buildup. However, there are usually obvious indications that the foundation needs to be repaired. Here are a few examples.

Foundational Fissures

The appearance of cracks is the most typical indicator of a compromised foundation. Hidden cracks usually appear before visible ones. Thus, the issue is more serious than it first appears. This is a major worry if the outer walls are eroding in any way. There could be visible damage and hairline fractures in the house’s basement. All of these are issues.

Warped Walls and Ceilings

The house’s walls might reveal more about what’s going on underneath. A house shift may have occurred if there is warping, such as when the walls or ceiling are no longer flush and flat. Another place to hunt for it is in the corners of the house’s rooms. They might not be a good fit anymore. It may be problematic if the ceiling, molding, joins, and corners are no longer flush.

Water Damage

Water is frequently the cause of damage to foundations. A damaged foundation can result from improper water drainage away from the building. There is a limit to how much moisture can accumulate in concrete foundations before it starts to crack.

What do we offer?

Here is what we will do to support your foundations

Underpinning

The depth of the foundation can be increased with this technique, or a repair is possible if it has sustained considerable damage. This technique can be the best action if the structure has cracks, especially visible and broader than 14 inches. There are numerous underlying options accessible, such as:

  • Mass pour
  • Screw piles and brackets
  • Pile and beam
  • Piled raft

Jacketing of Foundations

The jacketing of foundations is an additional technique you may hear. When columns need to be strengthened, this technique is employed. This is a typical requirement when adding more load to the wall, as through extensions. Widening or strengthening the existing foundation could be essential to ensure the fence is sturdy enough to support this. To do this, the team creates a concrete jacket that is added to the building’s existing footings.

Mudjacking

Mudjacking is a technique for strengthening the foundation of smaller footprint spaces, although it doesn’t use mud. Steps, tiny concrete surfaces, and porches are frequently utilized with it. In small holes the mixture is drilled into the concrete comprising of cement and other ingredients.

House Lifting and Leveling

It could be required to utilize house lifting to prevent flood damage. Although it is never easy, it may involve placing a hydraulic jack under the house and lifting it. This procedure, also known as “building jacketing,” consists of removing the building’s real structure from the base and raising it with screw jacks. It can be helpful when the system needs to be moved, or its foundation needs to be strengthened.

Contractors must always consider factors like the concrete slab’s state and the house’s balance. They must also consider the actual degree of the damage and the type of soil in the area. Almost always, a unique strategy works best.

Annette Casatelli

I received a few quotes to get the walls in my home filled in with blown in insulation. Zavza Seal was affordable and they did an excellent job.

They were very concerned with cleaning up, which I appreciated. I felt the difference in my home immediately. No more freezing cold walls. I recommend them, hands down.

Ellen Szuchmacher

Efficient, courteous and responsible workers. The job was quoted as being completed in 2 days but more work was required and they returned on the 3rd day and completed the job without additional charges. They reinsulated my crawlspace (not an easy job). I recommend Zavza Seal without reservation.

Couldn’t be more satisfied with the job Zavza Seal did. Brendan and Jake were accommodating, fair and extremely knowledgeable. Their team worked incredibly hard that day under difficult conditions and did a great job. I manage a multi-unit HOA and we will definitely be using them again.
