Crumbling, Chipping, or Flaking Concrete
WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU NOTICE CHANGES IN THE CONCRETE OF YOUR FOUNDATION
Crumbling, chipping, or flaking foundations aren’t just unappealing to look at, they can be dangerous. Not only do they decrease the value of your home, but they can also lead to other foundation issues over time. If you notice crumbling or flaking, inspect the entire foundation and look for other signs of foundation failure and call Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services.
Some common signs include:
- Wall cracks
- Floor cracks
- Shifting or moving foundations
- Foundation cracks
- Cracks in brick or masonry
- Ceiling cracks
- Leaning or bowing walls
- Leaky basement
Any of these signs could indicate foundation issues. Flaking or chipping foundations are more than cosmetic flaws, they could indicate foundation failure due to aging, settlement, or water issues. If aging is the case, our experts can restore and stabilize your foundation. Homes that are experiencing water issues have a weak concrete surface, causing it to crumble over time. Other water issues, such as frozen concrete or too much water added during the concrete mixing process, could cause crumbling foundations. For all of your foundation concerns, contact the professionals at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services. We can inspect your crumbling foundation and provide an effective solution for your home in the Pittsburgh area.
SOLUTIONS TO CONCRETE PROBLEMS WITH YOUR SLAB OR FOUNDATION
Crumbling foundations are a good indicator that your home may have foundation issues that can affect the overall structure of your home. Regular inspections will keep your home’s foundation in good condition and prevent costly future repairs. If you notice foundation issues, contact the experts at Matthews Wall Anchor & Waterproofing Services so we can keep your foundation safe and stable.
For deteriorating and settling foundations, we offer foundation repair methods such as steel piers and helical piers. Steel piers are the strongest foundation repair available with a manifold lifting system. Our helical piers are also effective because they can be installed below active soils without disturbing the work site. They are easily load-tested to verify the capacity and immediately load transferred after the installation process.
If you have an inadequate waterproofing system, water can affect your foundation causing rapid deterioration. We offer waterproofing solutions to eliminate water seepage through concrete cracks. Our waterproofing methods include exterior/interior waterproofing, sump pumps, drainage systems, and a basement drainage system. These will help keep your foundation safe and dry for many years to come.
