From mixing the concrete to pouring it, we mostly use a concrete pump that easily pours in the area. If we are working on a much smaller area or if our concrete pump can not get near the vicinity we want to pour in, we mix and pour the concrete by hand when necessary. Making sure measurements are done beforehand, and pouring it out evenly smooth the concrete to set to dry on a strong surface area of the ground. The concrete particles settle, squeezing water out of the pores and drying up to the surface. Building any type of concrete structure, we make sure proper measurements and the vicinity of the ground is the perfect place for the concrete. If you have an older foundation that is breaking down into the ground or cracking into more holes, we can remove the older foundation and pour in a new foundation for the ground.
Mostly concrete foundations will last a durable amount of time, but in the future, you will notice signs of the foundation in distress. You can eventually notice those signs on either the exterior or interior, such as broken or cracked foundations, separation around doors, windows, walls, and floors. Usually, the difference in soil moisture can cause shrinkage or swell underneath the ground. One of the ways we can repair the foundation is using sealants and masonry patches. If there are minor cracks along the foundation, we can simply patch up the cracks and cover them with a masonry sealer. The second method is MudJacking, which is used to lift the sinking concrete and level it. We mostly use this method to raise steps, walkways, garage floors, and driveways. A third method is inserting is piercing or pilling using a steel or concrete pier to resettle the foundation. This method does an excellent job long-term for your foundation.
