What are the signs of foundation problems in Laguna Niguel, CA?

You won’t find one sign of a failing foundation. Rather, you’ll find more than one issue. When you do, you’ll want to schedule a foundation evaluation to determine the problem.

If you’re seeing a retaining wall lean, you can have hillside stabilization done so you don’t need to worry about soil slowly crashing into your home in the future.

Living in Laguna Niguel, CA can present itself with unique issues, especially with many residential homes on top of expansive soil and residing on slopes.

The expansive soil will expand and contract depending on how exposed to water it is, causing shifts in the soil. Because of this, you want to be sure professionals are able to prevent your home from being further affected by shifting soil through foundation repair.

Dalinghaus Construction can provide an underpinning to keep your home from moving and being affected by settlement and lateral movement.

What does the foundation repair process look like?

The foundation repair process for a homeowner in Laguna Niguel, CA starts with a foundation evaluation with one of our Project Design Specialists at your door. During this 60-90 minute process, a scaled home diagram and floor elevation measurements are taken to properly evaluate the property.

The second step is to have a repair plan based on the issues specified and how they’ll be addressed. So you’ll receive a report, a CAD drawing, and the recommended repair plan.

Lastly, the repairs are made based on the repair plan and permitting.

What are the most common methods for foundation repair ?

You will often see production crews attaching a galvanized push pier or helical pier underpinning to the concrete footing of your home.

Push piers are tubes hydraulically driven into the ground to lift and stabilize sinking foundations.

Helical piers are also driven into the ground with screw-like blades at the base of the pier that helps to anchor them in place without damaging the surrounding soil. It’s like screwing a screw into a piece of wood.

We also put helical tiebacks on a retaining wall to prevent lateral movement and your home going downhill at a snail’s pace, or another home slowly colliding with yours.

How are foundation cracks repaired?

When it comes to foundation repair, you can expect a concrete slab or footing to crack, especially as sections of your home settles.

One way of addressing a crack is via Epoxy, which fills the crack with a substance called epoxy, which acts like gorilla glue.

The use of carbon fiber will also cover your crack and reinforce a concrete footing. Pieces of carbon fiber are stitched on the concrete while covering the crack to provide extra strength and prevent further cracks.
