CRACKED SLAB REPAIR
Cracked slabs are arguably the most common foundation issue that we see in Orange and San Diego Counties. Hundreds of homes and businesses in the Southern California area are struggling with cracked foundations, garage floors, concrete patios, porches, decks, and stairs. Why are cracked slabs so common? Cracked slabs can be caused by a variety of issues, but most likely originate from the soil conditions below. When the soil is saturated with water, it will expand and create pressure against the concrete slab above it. When the soil dries out, it then contracts and creates voids in the concrete. This movement of the soil causes concrete to shift, settle, and eventually crack. Because of the dry conditions and coastal weather in Southern California, this is especially true for homeowners out here on the west coast.
Don't Leave Your Cracked Slab Unrepaired
If left unrepaired, cracked slabs will cause severe damage to your home and property. If your cracked slab is your home's foundation, it will become extremely unstable over time, causing a variety of issues in your home.
An unstable foundation creates problems such as sloping floors, doors that won't shut, ceiling and wall cracks, and even water leaks. These types of issues will quickly decrease the value of your property, so it is important to maintain cracked slabs and have them repaired as soon as possible.

How To Repair A Cracked Slab
The team at FOUNDATIONS ON THE LEVEL is the premier cracked slab repair expert in Southern California. Our two-step method includes welding the crack closed with Rocklin Dual Component Epoxy and then stitching across the crack every 18 inches with Fortress Carbon Fiber Staples. This completely mends the crack and prevents it from becoming wider. After repairs, we can make your floor smooth enough to install any type of flooring on top.
If your cracked slab has settled into the ground, we can raise it back to its original level with slab releveling. Cracked slabs can be lifted and leveled with low-density water blown spray foam. We use Arnco Performance Polymers for our slab releveling repairs. This is a superior product for slab raising and the team at FOUNDATIONS ON THE LEVEL has many years of success using this method.
