What Are the Basic Steps in Foundation Repair Ottawa?
Frequently Asked Questions
Will You Repair the Entire Foundation?
If your entire foundation needs to be stabilized or waterproofed and repaired to prevent future damage, we will provide you with an effective and lasting solution that ensures your safety and the marketability of your home. Every project that we take on includes a thorough and honest inspection, followed by our recommendation for the work that is required. We never make false claims or engage in band-aid solutions. Quality work and customer satisfaction are our priorities.
Is Foundation Waterproofing Really Necessary?
If moisture can seep through the foundation and collect in your basement, it can lead to mold growth that can cause serious health problems and further damage to your home. Basement waterproofing provides a protective barrier on the exterior foundation walls to prevent water infiltration that can lead to mold and other foundation issues.
When Should I Get My Stone Foundation Inspected?
Small issues can quickly escalate, especially if you own an older home with a stone foundation. That’s why you should arrange to have a foundation inspection as soon as any moisture, deterioration or movement is suspected to diagnose any issues that could need repair now.
How Do You Determine If Something Needs Repair?
Our team of experts will come to your home and conduct a thorough on-site inspection to determine the problem and all the relevant risks. We’ll then offer a cost-effective solution to repair your home based on the type of repair required.
How Long Does a Foundation Repair Take?
The average residential repair can take between 2 to 3 days, but some projects may take additional time to complete. Because every job is completely different from the next, the amount of time will depend on the type of problem and complexity. Regardless of the project, we always deliver on time. You will receive a written estimate and regular updates throughout the entire process.
How much does it cost to repair a concrete foundation?
The cost to repair a concrete foundation varies on the work that is required. Often, we are unable to provide an exact quote for our services before excavation and engineering take place. The cause of the problem needs to be identified before we can provide repair specifications specific to the cause.
Can a slab foundation be repaired?
Yes, a slab foundation can be repaired. Just like with any structure, repair specifications specific to the cause of the problem are required.
What is the best foundation repair method?
There is no single method for every foundation repair. Every foundation is unique in its environments, construction methods and quality. Every foundation repair is designed specifically for the repair required.
What are the first signs of foundation problems?
Foundation problems can be issues with water infiltration, structural movement, breaking of the foundation and deterioration. These types of repairs require immediate attention as they affect other components of the structure and affect the overall value of a property.
