Slab Settlement Repair Services

Though most structures use metal pillars as the basic material for their foundations, today’s modern homes are fitted with concrete slabs. A lot of homeowners are beginning to choose this material over the traditional one because besides being able to keep the floors from sinking underground, concrete slabs come with its own set of unique benefits:

Damaged Slab
  • Regulates indoor temperatures
  • Resistant to termites
  • More durable than most foundation types
  • Improves a home’s acoustics
  • Comes in various styles

However, although concrete slabs are stronger than the common foundation material, it still does not mean that it can avoid all damages. Depending on the severity of the situation, concrete slabs can develop problems which cannot be dealt with through do-it-yourself and/or home methods. One of which is slab settlement.

What Causes Concrete Slabs to Settle?

The usual suspect, that causes concrete slabs to settle, is soil. The texture of soil changes depending on the environment outdoors. When it’s too hot it gets hard, but when it begins raining excessively, it becomes soft and muddy – making it more difficult for the slab to find balance. If the soil continues to shrink and expand, the concrete slab will not have enough time to adjust with the growing or shrinking spaces. In time, it will weaken, and once that happens, the building it is trying to uphold will begin sinking.
