Residential Foundation Repairs
Visible structural damage to the inside or outside of an existing building is usually a sign of foundation failure. You may notice cracks in brick, tile, or floor slabs. Walls may be bowing in or leaning out. Windows and doors may stick. Trim and molding may be misaligned. MacLean Dixie's foundation repair systems can instantly restore a structure's stability so that these aesthetic repairs can be completed as well
What Causes the Damage?
Hot, dry conditions and decomposing organic material can cause soil to settle (see blog for more info), leading to cracks in a structure. Tree roots can outgrow their spaces and creep under foundations, causing them to buckle. Leaking water lines or poor drainage can soften soil, caving it in below foundations. Sites that were improperly prepared initially can also have inherent stability problems. No matter what the cause of foundation failure, MacLean Dixie has the solution.
