Is it time for you to conduct basement waterproofing or have the foundations repaired? If it’s your first time having your foundations done, you probably have no idea what to expect of your contractor or what you’d see when the job is being conducted.
In this post, Rapid-Dri shares a few things you should expect during a typical foundation repair procedure.
Before conducting the job, the specialist will inspect your entire property, the foundation and the overall structure while identifying problems along the way. This will help them determine how much work needs to be done during the foundation repair properly. At Rapid-Dri, we’ll also provide you with a free estimate but you’ll most likely need a full engineer’s report and permits in any case.
Getting to your foundation for repairs may require access holes from both in and out of your home. They’ll determine the access points and remove any elements in the way. You can expect them digging in your property.
If there are parts of your foundation that are uneven or sagging, the foundation repair crew will lift it to the appropriate level and reinforce it with steel or concrete piers to protect your home’s structure.
Repairs to Other Damage
Once the lifting stage is completed, the crew will move on to other necessary concrete repairs, such as patching up cracks and refilling the access holes they’ve made.
Expect your contractor to clean up after themselves during the process. At Rapid-Dri, we remove debris and equipment and restore landscape or flooring that may have been affected by the job.
