A settling slab foundations harbors plenty of potential issues, and it’s important to get your home back on a stable track as soon as possible. Cracks, uneven floors, and other signs of slab settlement are not just cosmetic issues but serious indications that your home’s safety and structural integrity is at stake.
Mount Valley Foundation Services is here with the perfect answer — our premium slab piers are designed to provide a permanent, warrantied solution to stabilize your home’s foundation. On this page, we offer insights into why slab piers are the right choice to address your foundation problems.
What Are Slab Piers?
Slab piers are customized foundation repair instruments crafted to provide permanent stabilization to settling slab foundations. Unlike many other repair options, slab piers are exclusively designed for slab foundations, giving them a higher efficacy rate.
Acting as stable pillars, they transfer the load of your home to deeper, stable grounds, preventing any future settlements and mitigating the effects of shifting soil conditions. Beyond stabilization, slab piers have the potential to elevate your home back to its original position.
Incorporating slab piers is a critical component in a broader strategy that seeks to preserve your home’s structural well-being, complementing other necessary services such as basement waterproofing and crawl space repair to guarantee the longevity of your residence.
Signs You Need Slab Piers
Understanding when you need slab piers is crucial. Here are signs that signal the need for slab pier intervention:
- Visible cracks on the floor
- Drywall cracks
- Nail pops in the drywall
- Uneven or sloping floors
- Sticking doors and windows
- Gaps between floors and walls
- Plumbing leaks
Although these signs may seem like aesthetic issues initially, they can signify a degrading foundation that shouldn’t be ignored. Reach out to the experts at Mount Valley Foundation Services at the earliest sight of these issues.
Are Slab Piers Necessary?
