What are the signs of foundation problems in Huntington Beach, CA?
While Huntington beach has, well, a beach, some properties reside on slopes. You might see retaining walls start to bow out or lean. Or your home is experiencing lateral movement
Being by the coast, Huntington Beach has sandy, grainier soils compared to cities inland. Even then, the soil will move and cause foundation settlement.
Whether you’re dealing with expansive or grainier soil, your home is still susceptible to foundation settlement. Different circumstances will make it so you may need foundation repair.
Huntington Beach has sandy loam soils susceptible to movement when moisture is present.
Some sandier soil will allow polyurethane deep injection to densify the soil and offer stability to your home or property, especially at a seafront property.
Dalinghaus Construction provides quality foundation repair services in Southern California, keeping your home safe as it sinks into the ground over time.
What does the foundation repair process look like?
Your foundation will first be inspected by one of our Project Design Specialists. During the 60-90 minute inspection, a scaled home diagram and floor elevation measurements are taken to properly evaluate the property.
From there you will receive a repair plan based on what was found, which includes a full report, a CAD drawing of your property, and a repair plan.
Finally, the repair will be done based on the repair plan and permitting.
What are the most common methods for foundation repair ?
There are two common methods when it comes to foundation issues such as settlement. Galvanized steel push piers and helical piers are often used for underpinning the home.
Push piers are hydraulically driven into the soil until they reach bedrock to lift and stabilize sinking foundations.
Helical piers are essentially screwed into the ground due to the helices at the base. They’re screwed into the ground until they reach competent soil. Think of them being put into the ground like you would screw a shelf onto a wall.
For your slab-on-grade foundation home, polyurethane will be injected under your home to strengthen the soil and aid in stabilizing your home. Polyurethane foam is environmentally safe and can be as hard as concrete.
Helical tiebacks will be put into a retaining wall for hillside stabilization, assuming you’re experiencing lateral movement.
How are foundation cracks repaired?
There are multiple ways foundation cracks can be repaired.
Epoxy fills the cracks with a glue-like substance. Think of it like super glue.
Carbon fiber can be used to address foundation cracks by using carbon fiber stitching onto the foundation wall or concrete slab. It’s excellent in preventing further cracking and completely covering up what’s being addressed. Incredibly waterproof, too.
8 reasons for foundation repair in Huntington Beach, CA
Water is an enemy of concrete. If you see water pooling next to your foundation, you might have drainage issues with your concrete. You want to make sure you can prevent concrete spalling, cracks, and potential rebar blowout.
Concrete is porous due to small capillary tunnels. Water will eventually make it to the rebar inside.
