How do I know if my Chandler, AZ, property has foundation issues?
Expansive soils make your home or business susceptible to foundation settlement or heaving, especially as Arizona has odd weather in general. Sure, it may be dry most of the time, but when monsoon season hits, the water hits hard. So whether it’s foundation settlement or heaving, you’ll see these signs of having foundation issues.
Note – you’ll find more than one of these signs if you have foundation issues. If it’s just one, you likely don’t have an issue with your foundation.
For some reason, many homes in Chandler, let alone the rest of Arizona, doesn’t believe in proper drainage. Yes, it’s usually dry in Arizona, but water likes to stick around during monsoon season. And you don’t want water sticking around your foundation like someone at a party that stuck around too long. You’ll start to see concrete spalling or rebar blowout and causing foundation issues.
If you notice these signs, you’ll want a professional to give special attention to the foundation of your home or business. That way foundation repair can be underway.
Dalinghaus Construction can provide a foundation inspection and foundation repair in Chandler, AZ, so your home doesn’t have to endure any more damage.
What does the foundation repair process look like in Chandler, AZ?
Dalinghaus Construction makes the foundation repair process as simple as possible for you.
First, a scheduled foundation inspection is done on your property by one of our Project Design Specialists, figuring out the issues with your foundation. A scaled CAD drawing is made with floor elevation measurements to properly assess the property.
Next, a comprehensive foundation repair plan is made by the same specialist who inspected your property, which includes a full report, the CAD drawing of your property, and the recommended foundation repair that’s needed.
The last part involves going through the foundation repair plan based on what was recommended and the guidelines of required city permits.
How is foundation repair done in Chandler, AZ?
Foundation repair contractors will put in underpinnings so your home or business doesn’t move when the soil does.
Two methods of underpinning Dalinghaus Construction uses are galvanized push piers and helical piers. Both types are put into the ground until reaching competent soil or bedrock to be attached to your home and basically act like stilts. The difference between the piers is how they’re installed. Push piers are hydraulically driven into the ground. Helical piers have helices at the base and are put into the ground using a helical torque motor.
Both are used to stabilize your foundation. They can also lift the area of your home or business affected by foundation settlement to maximum practical recovery.
It doesn’t rain in Chandler, AZ, often, but when it does, you sure know it. And because of drainage issues for home and business owners, water likes to act like a roommate around your home that doesn’t pay rent. Water next to your foundation will cause damage through concrete spalling or rebar blowout. Dalinghaus Construction does concrete removal and replacement so your foundation is working as well as new. That way your home or business is reinforced.
Do homes in Chandler, AZ, need their foundation cracks repaired?
If you’re feeling your floor slope, there is a high likelihood that your foundation is cracked. This can be repaired in a couple of ways.
A resic called Epoxy is gravity fed into the crack and dries to act with the strength of Hercules to keep everything together.
Carbon fiber stitching is applied on top of cracks to not only hold everything together but also waterproof your crack. That way it’s less likely water will seep in, make contact with the rebar to make it rust, and cause blowout to produce more cracks.
Why should I get foundation repair in Chandler, AZ?
Looking at the signs of foundation issues is uncomfortable. The damage is cosmetic the majority of the time, which can be unappealing to look at when there are cracks on your wall or ceiling. Foundation repair lets you fix those cosmetic issues without having to worry about them coming back from foundation issues.
The damage you experience from foundation issues is cosmetic most of the time. If the problem isn’t fixed and put off for a long time, the damage could eventually become structural, which can red-tag your home if left unaddressed.
Damage to your home or business because of your foundation lowers your property’s value. If you’re looking to sell your property for its full value, foundation repair is the way to go. While foundation repair isn’t cheap, you’ll still make more after your project is done.
Not only do foundation issues decrease the value of your property, but you’re very limited to who you can sell your home to. Because the damage needs to be legally disclosed, most banks don’t like to loan money, which limits you to cash buyers. Cash buyers can negotiate the price of your home down by 30%.
Foundation issues can make your day-to-day feel like a little workout, especially as more time passes. Windows and doors in the areas affected will feel sticky as you try to open and close them. Foundation repair via foundation stabilization makes it so those day-to-day things won’t be more difficult and can be properly addressed.
It’s not always foundation settlement or heave that causes damage to your home. When the concrete in your foundation begins to blow out, you can expect the damage to get back at a quicker rate as moisture gets in. Concrete removal and replacement protect your home or business as it has something more reliable to sit on.
Foundation settlement and heave will affect your floors, having one part of your home or business feeling level while the other slopes like it’s trying to trip you up and twist your ankle. Foundation repair via leveling will have your floors feeling (as close to) as though the floors were never damaged.
Foundation repair is practical for your long-term investment. Your home or business is one of the top investments you want to preserve, especially with value and security. You want to ensure you, your family, your pets, and your workers are okay. You want to be sure everyone on your property can have some peace of mind!
