Of the many responsibilities you have as a homeowner, making sure that your house lasts for decades to come is a crucial one. This involves performing periodic inspections and repairs to your foundation, as it is the most integral part that supports the entire structure.
Fortunately, you don’t have to do it yourself. Foundation repair experts in Joliet, Illinois from The Real Seal will inspect the condition of your foundation and recommend reliable and long-lasting solutions to solve any issue.
Joliet, Illinois Foundation Repair – Services Offered
The Real Seal offers the following foundation repair services, and more, in Joliet, Illinois, and its surroundings.
Sloping Floor Repair
An insufficient number of support columns, failing footings, moisture-weakened joints, etc. are some common causes of sloping floors above a crawl space. Regardless of the cause, it is vital that you have the area repaired as soon as possible.
If you notice any sign of a sinking floor above your crawl space or basement, you can reach out to our experts. The Real Seal’s foundation repair specialists in Joliet, Illinois offer the most thorough sloping floor repair services. The most common technique we use is the installation of I-beam supports.
Sump Pump Installation
The sump pump helps prevent water buildup in your crawl space and basement by ejecting the water away from your home. Therefore, it is important to have a sump pump installed, if you don’t have one already, or the existing one in your home replaced if it no longer works properly.
We also offer a sump pump battery backup system installation service. Having a battery backup system for your sump pump can be a lifesaver when you face power outages during a storm. The battery backup you get from us is of top quality and comes with a 3-year warranty.
Concrete settling is another common problem faced by homeowners. Whether it is due to poor drainage, poor site conditions, or other reasons, overlooking the issue will only lead to larger structural problems.
Since adding a new layer of concrete on top of the damaged one is likely to result in more sinking and cracks, foundation experts from The Real Seal uses a technique called polyjacking. In this process, dime-sized holes will be drilled in the affected concrete area, and polyurethane foam will be injected underneath. The foam will then expand underneath the concrete, lifting it to its original position.
