Northeast Chula Vista Concrete Slab Lifting or Mudjacking
If parts of your concrete front walk, patio or driveway has sunken through the years, they will make that better too.
The operation is known as mud jacking (also referred to as slab jacking).
During this mud jacking process, they push a heavy liquid compound below the area of the concrete that needs to be elevated up.
That heavy mixture flows into the gaps under the slab, stiffens and pressures the concrete slab up. Very cool.
Slab lifting can enhance the overall look of sidewalks and also prevent unexpected tripping incidents.
Why Is This Happening to My SoCal Property?
Well, most of it is simply science. The dirt your home rests on moves and shifts a bit each year.
It might expand or shrink according to its repeated contact with moisture and temperature.
This slow, but constant, expansion and contraction of the dirt can place a significant amount of pressure on even a well-built house.
Although you can’t control our weather, getting your house erected on a residential lot that has awful drainage and unconventional grading or declining to add quality rain gutters could be important factors in whether or not your home gets a foundation or water problem.
Some property owners have challenges in these areas; most SoCal homeowners do not.
One of the greatest ways to prevent future house foundation problems is to keep water from collecting around and under the house.
The specific variety of soil at your property is an important factor too.
Some kinds of ground will swell and enlarge more than others will when it gets wet.
An absorbent residential lot can take in water and then expand.
That is not the best situation.
Fortunately, most coastal soil is considered as just medium absorbent, it will not swell as much as some soils in some different areas of the state and country.
The expansive roots of a big tree next to your house might actually extract all the available moisture from underneath the house, making it too dry during a typical dry and hot Summer periods.
This dryness causes the soil to contract too much.
These types of stress can contribute to the creation of little cracks in your home’s structure.
These small cracks will allow in moisture, humidity and even small bugs, and then those small cracks will just get larger as years go by.
I Would Like To Put It Off And Do It Later

Then you will know whether or not your property has a problem and if it has to be repaired immediately or not.
The inspection itself is not something you should postpone.
Cracks and other problems with your structure will not get better over time.
It is almost always better to have the condition repaired as soon as you can.

When your basement or other area under your home is permitting rain water to get into it, the subsequent ailments can vary from a damp smell to a case of mold.
Plus, every year the circumstances will usually get more serious.
Perhaps you are considering not starting the repair work, since you are considering putting your house on the market.
But no perspective buyer wants to purchase a home with a hidden structural complication or reveals telltale signs of water down in the basement.
And, if you are planning to sell your house, it’s your duty to let a potential buyer know about any troubles with your home.
