Dealing with a damaged slab foundation in Simi Valley?
Well, a home is only as strong as its foundation. So, it’s important to fix these problems as quickly as possible.
Typically, cracks in a slab foundation are the result of settling soil that was not compacted properly prior to pouring the foundation. If you’re in Thousand Oaks, many homes were built on foundations with no rebar.
To fix slab foundation damage, a homeowner has two different solutions: mudjacking or installing piers.
MUD JACKING — Another option is called “mud jacking”. This technique is effective for supporting the slab from underneath. The benefit of mud jacking is that it will also lift the slab to its original level. This is also the type of work to hire a professional for, so you don’t end up with a worse problem.
INSTALLING PIERS— This requires a contractor to drill steel piers down until it finds stable soil to bear the loads of the foundation. The piers are then attached to the foundation.
But none of this is cheap. Repairing a slab foundation usually costs between $1,000 and $15,000 depending on the severity of the damage.
