Cracked cement, settling, failing foundation, wall cracks and more can be stemming from the weakened soil around your home. Before you get ready to sell consider soil cement stabilization solutions.
Weak soil is the enemy of your home. Soil cement stabilization can help to improve the soil, repair foundation slippage and reduce the stress on the rest of your home.
What is Soil Cement Stabilization?
Ideally soil stabilization occurs before a foundation is poured or a driveway is laid but sometimes it is not, and problems can take years to reveal themselves. This process can be retrofitted to help improve everything from your foundation to your patio.
This process can help to neutralize settling, for crack repair, lift and repair cracks in sidewalks, roadways, driveways, pools, patios and foundations. It is an environmentally friendly solution that does not involve digging up your landscaping.
How Do You Know if Your Soil Is Weak?
There are some signs that point to the problem of weakened soil including:
- Cracks in walls and foundations
- Uneven floors or floors that are tilted
- Windows and doors that stick or are difficult to open and close
All the signs above can mean that your home is settling more than it should. One of the telltale signs that your homes “settling” beyond what is expected is that the problems get worse with time. For example, a kitchen cabinet that seemed a little off at one point is not difficult to open and close.
