Slab Foundations Can Have Problems Southwest Marietta, GA
Foundation Repair Atlanta GA

Some homes are constructed with a crawl space or a full basement while other homes are built on a foundation of a concrete slab. As time passes, these slab foundations can crack, sink and shift to the point the entire structure is compromised. Uneven floors, a crack in a wall or the tilt of your chimney may seem like a nuisance and a peculiarity of your home, but it is telling you there is a serious problem that is jeopardizing the whole structure. It will only get worse with time.

What Causes a Slab Foundation to Sink

When the soil underneath a slab foundation shifts, the foundation will fail. Most likely the cause is erosion. Water saturates the soil and when it drains, some of the soil goes with it. A burst pipe or ruptured drain can do this at an alarming rate. Slower causes could be natural erosion or a broken gutter system. A slab may move because the ground the slab was poured on was not compacted well enough.

Choosing a Repair

Each home is different and has different requirements to restore its integrity. You may choose a temporary fix, such as mudjacking, or a more permanent repair to last. Replacing the entire foundation is possible, but pricey, and may not be necessary for a permanent fix. Each structure has its own unique problems and requires a customized solution.

There are several options for repairs for slab foundations. Slab jacking is one repair option. When slab jacking, Anglin’s installs special patent pending slab brackets to anchor the foundation in place. This prevents further shifting.

Do not mistake this for mudjacking, where mud or a concrete slurry is pumped into holes in the foundation to raise it to a particular level. Mud may wash away and added concrete may increase your foundation’s weight and cause additional sinking.

Fix It for Life

You may need slab jacking. You may need to reroute water flow in your landscape to protect the integrity of the soil under your foundation. You may have a problem with a sinkhole. Perhaps some plumbing needs repaired. Each foundation has its own unique problems and appropriate solutions.

When you speak with your Anglin’s foundation specialist, you will be offered a comprehensive plan to fix the problem right the first time. To get a customized plan for your home, call Anglin’s Foundation & Masonry Repair today for a free inspection.

Tammy S.

From start to finish, everyone at Anglin's was amazing! Gus was responsive, always answered his phone, knowledgeable, professional, honest and fair. He went above and beyond to make a stressful situation less stressful. Scheduling was a breeze and the crew that arrived on the job (on time, I might add) were courteous, respectful and efficient. They allowed me to watch and take pictures, and explained the process step-by-step, as well as what results were to be expected. Iggy was so knowledgeable, professional and amazing. He was able to pin point a problem that 2 other competing companies couldn't explain or relay in layman's terms what needed to be done and why. He was an absolute superstar in easing the mind of the buyers purchasing the house. His 27 years experience was so valuable. Shelly was quick to send paid invoices and warranty information. Everyone did an amazing job and I would recommend them highly.

I cannot say enough good things about GUS at Anglin’s Foundation and Masonry! GUS, was fast and gave a free estimate on raising, reattaching and fixing my brick stairs. I will be sure to post before and after photos! Thank you GUS for your no nonsense, straight forward approach! Thank you for listening to me! The Greensmith’s

Regina Renee Kalasz

Today was a install of a 2nd beam for our house... first one was easy, 2nd one gave them a run for their money. But they stuck it out and got it done! Awesome work! I'd throw a + behind my 5 stars if I could. Sorry I held your crew up, but they were determined to get it done with no issues. So shout out to your team Chris, Leo and Dan!

Scott Lapin

The team that lifted our chimney was prompt, courteous and efficient. Other then the repair, you simply could not tell they were even there despite the fact they had to remove part of our deck to do the work. I would HIGHLY recommend them.

Melissa Reed

Diagnosis and estimate from a picture, arrived as scheduled, done in just a couple hours and results were absolutely amazing. Price, workmanship, clean up - everything was absolutely 5 star!! Highly recommend these folks!!! I must add, 2 other well known and much advertised companies came out and estimated 6x the work and price, claiming we had more issues than what was actually going on. These guys call it like it is - honesty and integrity are hard to find in construction.

Dana Brennan

This crew is top notch. Worked with the office and mainly with Gus on site who was great. Showed up early, super knowledgeable, tons of experience. We really felt served in the way he recommended only what needed to be done and at a great price. Had another company wanting to add in other extras and unnecessary work. HIGHLY recommend Anglin!!

Aaron Gray

Quick to call back and totally honest. I wasn't sure if I had a foundation issue or a flooring issue but after a few questions, Nathan helped to figure out that it thankfully wasn't a foundation issue. Insteand of trying to sell me a job, Nathan helped me to make a good decision. I hope I never have foundation issues but if I do, this is the company I'm hiring.

Jake Herman

Another masonry contractor referred us to Anglin because we had a concern about the structural integrity of our chimneys. We were told that they were the best people to talk to. I called them and they actually came by to assess my house within two hours. Although I was fully prepared to spend a lot of money to stabilize my chimneys, he did a full assessment and very honestly told me that my chimneys were fine and just needed some caulking where the mortar met the brick. I greatly respect his expertise and honesty and would recommend him without reservation.
