Found a leak or crack in your foundation? For most of us, homes are life’s biggest investment. All too well, we know the feeling that hits the pit of our stomach when something like this happens, and the following dreaded question, “how much is this going to cost?” Our recommendation: don’t let your imagination get the best of you. Usually, smaller leaks and cracks can be handled relatively inexpensively and may not indicate a dire issue, but ignoring the problem can quickly lead to a hefty bill and potentially irreversible damage to your home’s foundation.
Buildings in San Antonio are often built on one of two foundation types. These foundations are either concrete slab or pier and beam. Concrete slab foundations are built on a pad of reinforced concrete, where pier and beam foundations are built on a network of wooden, concrete, or steel piers. Beams under the floor are supported by the piers. Depending on the foundation type and extend of the damage, repairs could be simple or more complex.
