When a foundation is constructed, it is created to bear the weight of a load (floors, siding, roofing) evenly. Over time, environmental factors such as erosion, soil conditions, leaks, and even tree roots can wreak havoc not anticipated in the design specifications and cause an imbalance in one or more places. Usually, the result is sinking in one end or in multiple areas, indicating a structural issue. Methods for house leveling and foundation repair in San Antonio is first dependent on the foundation type. Slab foundation houses involve exterior excavation, use of piers or pilings and jacking, while crawl space foundation houses might require pilings to be installed under current piers. Other advanced foundation repair
techniques, such as adding chemical solutions, can also help by filling in foundation cracks or stabilizing soil conditions.
