If you notice a a part of your concrete walkway, courtyard, or garage has sunken in a little, they can normally lift it back up to where it was meant to be.

This method is often known as either slab jacking or mud jacking.

Mud jacking is a procedure where they shoot a mud-like or caulk-like material under a low concrete slab.

This particular heavy liquid gathers beneath the slab, stiffens and drives the slab to rise up back to the correct height.

Other than appearance, the biggest reason homeowners pay for slab jacking is that having irregular concrete sections might lead to tripping incidents, accidents and, in the warm weather months, stubbed toes.

Many jobs are wrapped up in just a few hours.

Why Is This Problem Happening to Me?

These problems take place because the earth underneath your home and driveway slowly shifts. It carefully shrinks or swells as a result of moisture and changes in temperature.

Side Drawing of what can happen to a structureThis slight, but periodic, activity might transfer pressure on whatever solid structure is on top of it.

Most properties are equipped for a bit of this movement, but too much movement, or too often, may strain even a newly-built building.

Sure, you might be unable to influence the weather or the soil makeup here in SoCal, there are several factors you could control.

First, your lot should be graded to push rain water away from your house.

Second, you need a dependable rain gutter system to stop the rain that falls on your house from gathering around it.

One crucial component that a homeowner can’t adjust is the natural composition of the dirt their home sits on.

Soil can vary across the state.

A few soils are more moisture resistant than others are.

The more absorbent the soil, the more water it captures and then the more it can increase when it gets wet and the more it contracts when it dries out.

Soil that can change a lot isn’t good for homeowners.

Another consideration, even though it usually isn’t as frequent, is having a broad tree too near to your property.

A big tree will have considerable roots that can reach well underneath your home.

Those roots can suck too much moisture from your soil during long dry and hot months and may even place physical strain on your building’s structure too.

At some point, you might see little cracks around the basement of your home.

These tiny cracks let in moisture and air, and then those smaller cracks might grow a little bit bigger every year.

Can I Wait and Think About It Later?

When it looks like you may be experiencing an issue at your house, it’s best to at least find a professional to look at it and learn their opinion.

Even though they would like these troubles to simply go away, they will not.

Matters such as foundation crack repair is generally solved soon rather than later.

The base of your property completely supports the full remainder of your building, from floor to roof.

It is better to sort out these problems rather than putting them off.

And if you regularly see rainwater under your house, the mixture of moisture and time could lead to mold.

And having mold thriving in your house can be a real problem.

If you’re looking at selling your home, remember that nobody wants to purchase a house that has a structure trouble or has telltale indications of moisture seepage in the basement.

And, if you are a home seller, you’ll want to divulge to the buyer the major troubles with your house or you might land in legal problems later on.

Try to not needlessly worry about it without knowing the facts.

A lot of disorders that appear far too impossible to fix through the homeowner’s eyes might actually be repaired.

They might include a complicated and frequently tough combination of steps, but they can get completed.
