Foundation Repair Options in Midland-Odessa
As foundation experts, we will assess the damage of your foundation and offer you a repair that best fits your needs. The two methods of foundation repair 1st Choice House Leveling Offers are slabjacking and foundation piering.
The most preferred method of house leveling is foundation piering. Foundation piering is the process of driving piers into the soil. The piers stabilize the concrete slab addressing the source of the problem which is the ground beneath the slab. This process takes from 1-3 days and is slightly more invasive than foundation damage.
If the foundation damage to your home is minimal, then slabjacking may be recommended. Slabjacking is less invasive and faster than other repair methods. This process requires holes to be drilled in the foundation then filled with a mixture of grout, cement, extenders, cement fondue, sand, and additives. As the mixture is pumped into the holes, the foundation rises and evens out.
