FOUNDATION REPAIR DALLAS: The A1 Guaranteed Foundation Repair Process

STEP ONE – ASSESSMENT

Once we have completed a thorough assessment of your home and determine foundation repair is necessary, we’ll provide you with a detailed report and discussion on what is needed and help you understand what the process will entail. We then schedule a date to complete the work.

STEP TWO – ENGINEERS REPORT*

Upon agreement, an appointment is made with an Independent Engineering firm to certify the repair plan.

STEP THREE – INSTALLING THE PIERS

With our approved plan, We install the piers in the approved locations to maximum depths. We work around bushes and plants as best we can, and if we have to remove them we do our best to preserve and replant them.

STEP FOUR – LEVELING

Our skilled foundation repair teams will very carefully and thoroughly employ techniques to level your home’s foundation based on your plan.

STEP FIVE – COMPLETION

Once leveling is complete, we completely clean up the work area, we take any extra dirt and fill in any low areas on the property and then perform minor mortar repair to the exterior of the home.

STEP SIX – FOLLOW UP

Appointments are made for a final report from the engineering firm and a plumbing test is performed.

FOUNDATION REPAIR: What Causes Foundations and Slabs to Sink?

With more than 20 years of foundation repair experience, we have found that the majority of foundation problems are rooted in one of the three areas mentioned above.

SOIL

Moisture changes in North Texas cause drastic clay composition changes. Acting like a sponge, soli expands during seasons of heavy rainfall and contracting during times of seasonal drought. Continuous fluctuation causes stress on your home’s foundation. Commonly, the center areas of the slab remain undisrupted, while the perimeters settle due to exposure to the seasonal moisture changes.

LANDSCAPING

Trees and large shrubs with the extensive root systems require immense amounts of moisture to sustain their health. Moist soils located near the edge of the home, as well as underneath the slab, provide a viable source of water. And when the root system drains the additional moisture from these areas, it causes the slab to settle.

PLUMBING

More common these days, plumbing has become a major issue for foundations. The cast iron plumbing commonly used in the 1960s and early 1970s is beginning to deteriorate and erode. The soli directly underneath the home can infuse with water, creating long-term foundation damage.

Very satisfied with the work. Everyone was professional and friendly. The work was done as scheduled, in a timely manner. The crew working did an excellent job and left the site neat and clean. Truly exceeded all of my expectations. Couldn't be more please so far. Now waiting to see if we experience any problems. Not expecting any and feel the company will honor the "guaranteed" part of their name. Totally satisfied!

I could not be happier. Everything went as discussed. The work crew arrived on time, worked a good portion of the day and cleaned up after work. I no longer see the stair stepping in the mortar joints. Good group of guys!
