Foundation Problems in San Antonio
Foundation-related issues are unfortunately quite common here in San Antonio. In fact, even local news stories sometimes highlight the primary problem, which is our layer of active clay soil. As the soil is exposed to extended wet and dry periods, it alternates between shrinking and swelling up, much like a sponge. If it isn’t mitigated, the movement of the soil can cause both vertical and horizontal movement of your house, which can then cause cracks and imperfections to appear. In many cases, these imperfections are visible at the high stress points of your house, such as the floors, areas around doors and windows, chimney area, exterior brick walls and interior sheetrock. They can also be seen in the foundation itself.
Pier and Beam Foundation Repair
Does your home feature a dirt crawl space? Floors on top of a vented dirt crawl space can settle, sink or sag over time for several reasons. For example, beams and joists that are weak due to wood rot and moisture, weak soil underneath the foundation or columns that are spaced too far apart can all cause these issues.
Moisture can be a particularly serious problem because it can cause mold growth and fungus. Here at Foundation Repair Pros, we offer multiple cost-effective options to fix these foundation issues permanently, including:
-Using dehumidification for crawl space encapsulation
-Repair of any rotten or broken beams with steel or wood I-beams
-Using steel shims for re-shimming
-Repairing failing piers with the use of a concrete pad base or the use of steel pier supports

Our Free Foundation Inspection Process
Here at Foundation Repair Pros, we follow a simple and straightforward yet thorough and highly effective process. Our number one goal is to evaluate your foundation issue and the advise you on the best and most cost-effective permanent solution.
First, our knowledgeable foundation specialists will carefully examine your home’s structure. This allows them to diagnose exactly what your issues are and what the best solutions to these problems might be. A lot of different criteria go into determining precisely how bad your home’s structural problems are and what the causes might be. Both horizontal and vertical movement of a home leaves distinct clues that we can use to determine all of these things. We will carefully observe, measure, ask you questions and more until we can get to the bottom of the problem. We even look for things like plumbing leaks to see if they are causing problems with your home’s structure. We will even let you know if your home is only in need of better drainage or something else rather than foundation repair, unlike other companies. We don’t just offer a house-leveling service; we offer premium solutions to all of your home foundation-related issues.
Once we are aware of any issues that might exist, the causes of these issues and the severity of these problems, we will begin working on a custom solution for your needs. For example, we might be able to use various underpinnings, jacks, anchors and piers; this will depend on things like the specific soil under your home and any water or foundation issues. We will look at all of the available options and tailor a solution that is the best for your needs.
