Pico Rivera Mudjacking (Concrete Slab Lifting) Service
Homeowners sometimes notice a section of their cement walkway, patio, garage or porch has sunken a little over the years.
If this has occurred at your home, they can usually fix it using a practice called mudjacking or slabjacking.
Mud jacking is a process of powerfully adding a caulk-like substance below the sunken slab.
This mixture oozes into every empty space underneath the concrete and then causes the cement slab to rise up.
Concrete raising will enhance the look of sidewalks and also stop unexpected tripping incidents.
Why Do House Structure Problems Happen?
Although you can’t notice it happening, the ground under our homes shifts a bit over time – the soil expands and contracts.
This happens largely due to exposure to water and shifting temperatures.
And even though this motion is small and slow, these constrictions and expansions can place pressure on whatever structure is in or on top of the ground.
And over time, this continued pressure can affect the integrity of even a well-built structure.
Most homeowners don’t encounter dramatic structure or water issues, but some do.
There are a couple of things a property owner can do to help prevent problems.
First they can make sure the lot their house sits on is properly graded to lead water away from their house.
And they should make sure they have rain gutters that collects all the rain that lands on their house and move it away from their house as well.
One of the primary variables that impact the likelihood of this happening is something that the homeowner can’t influence.
It’s the absorbency of the soil that a house is constructed on.
Soil that will absorb and soak up plenty of moisture will expand more than soil that does not retain water well.
In the suburbs of Los Angeles, much of the soil under our properties is not very absorbent.
However, if you go east a little ways, you will come across these absorbent clay soils in many neighborhoods.
One more less significant cause of structure difficulties is that big tree which is too near to your house.
A major tree may cause problems if its roots stretch out below the home and maybe place some strain on the slab, or on sewer and water piping.
The roots of a large tree that is up too close to your house might also draw moisture out of the ground underneath your home, making the soil there too dried out during one of these typical hot and dry Summer seasons.
These natural elements help with the beginning of smallish cracks over time in solid materials such as concrete.
Minor cracks let in air and moisture and can grow into larger splits. And just one sizable split can produce problems.
Can’t I Just Worry About This Later?
If you worry you have a problem at your house, it is best to get it looked over and fixed if necessary.
The inspection isn’t something you should put off.
Don’t neglect it. You know your basement structure supports your entire building.
Your entire house, the walls, floors and even the roofing all depend on it.
If you are discovering moisture inside your basement when it rains, maybe it won’t require too much work to make it better.
You don’t want mold down in the basement. If you don’t take care of it, it does not get better over time either.
If you are thinking about just selling your house and not actually fixing it, there are few possible buyers who would consider a house that has a structure challenge or one that has a history of water in its basement.
In addition, if you are putting your house up for sale it’s your responsibility to tell buyers about any known crucial faults with your house before they purchase it.
So it doesn’t make any sense to not fix the problem first.
In some situations, property owners think their situation is so awful it will turn into a sizable major project and it will cost them serious money to take care of.
They often turn out to be pleasantly surprised that it might be resolved successfully.
But a homeowner doesn’t be sure until they get it examined.
