      Does Your Foundation Need Repair?

      When you decide to work with Aqua Lock for your foundation repair in Louisville, KY, you can trust that you’re working with the best Kentucky has to offer. Our certified structural evaluators undergo thorough training and ongoing education to ensure that they can tackle any problem that comes your way. But how do you know if your foundation, or basement in general, is in need of repair work?

      We offer permanent solutions for all types of foundation problems that your home may be facing, including:

      Sinking Foundations

      The signs of a sinking foundation are often most noticeable as uneven floors or as visible gaps between the walls and the floors of your basement. Foundation settlement is a similar and equally disruptive and dangerous problem to watch out for. If you notice any of these issues within your home, addressing them with our team here at Aqua Lock will help prevent further structural damage.

      Foundation Cracks

      Cracks in the foundation of your home are often caused by soil movement, water damage, and structural stress. Cracks of any shape or size—whether they’re horizontal, vertical, or jagged—should never be ignored. That’s because it is simultaneously a structural hazard and an easy way to accumulate water damage around your foundation and basement. 

      Our foundation repair in Louisville, KY, can help address these cracks to help prevent further damage and, in some cases, restore the structural integrity of the foundation.

      Basement Floor Cracks

      Noticeable foundation cracks are another all-too-common issue and can signify a number of underlying foundation issues. Most commonly, these cracks are the result of soil settlement or shifts in the foundation’s position. 

      Hydrostatic pressure caused by excess groundwater (due to poor drainage) can also cause cracks to appear. In this case, not only is the structural integrity of your foundation jeopardized, but it can also lead to potential water damage and mold problems.

      Basement Wall Cracks

      Much like cracks in the foundation of your property, visible cracks around the basement walls of your home are another significant cause for concern. Again, these can be caused by factors such as soil settlement, the same hydrostatic pressure as mentioned above, or a number of other underlying structural issues with the property.

      Accordingly, our team here at Aqua Lock can help root out the core of the issue and provide a solution that will work best for your needs.

      Sticking Doors and Windows

      Finally, if your property is in need of foundation repair, you’ll likely notice that doors and windows throughout your home have become more challenging to open and close smoothly. This commonly occurs because of improper foundation settling or water damage that causes the frames to warp and become misaligned. Though frustrating doors and windows aren’t themselves cause for concern, the underlying issues causing them to act that way certainly are.

      If you have noticed one of the above issues or anything that is causing you concern within your own home or property, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (502) 495-9450.

      Our foundation repair can help address whatever issues your property may be dealing with.

      Foundation Repair Questions

      Do You Repair Sinking Foundations?

      Yes. Sinking foundations are a common structural problem seen on both old and new homes, and can effect a foundation regardless of where you live. Sinking foundations are basically caused by poor soil conditions around the home. If adequate backfill soil is not used during construction, foundation problems are likely to occur. Other environmental factors such as wet, soggy soil, tree roots and vegetation growth can create voids beneath the home which walls can eventually sink into. Another cause of sinking foundations is the use of improper building techniques or materials during construction.

      Do You Fix Foundation Cracks?

      Yes. Cracks in a foundation can be caused from sinking, bowing walls, or from improper construction techniques or materials being used during the time when the home was being built. It is important to get the openings looked at by a trained professional to determine what caused them, and the best way to go about fixing them. The longer you wait to get your floor or wall cracks repaired, the more likely it becomes that water from the surrounding soil will seep inside and cause damage to your basement environment, including anything that you may have stored here. Also, the longer you neglect the problem, the deeper and wider the crevice is going to get. We can fix horizontal, vertical, and stair-step crevices.

      How Do You Fix Foundation Cracks?

      We offer different solutions to address and correct all types of foundation cracks and a wide range of other foundation problems. Our certified structural evaluators are trained to identify the underlying causes behind foundation cracks and recommend the best and most cost-effective solution for each unique situation. With our foundation and basement repair in Louisville, KY, you can trust that a solution will be found promptly and at a reasonable cost.

      How Do Foundation Cracks Happen?

      Cracks in basement walls and floors are typically caused from excessive pressure being applied to the foundation from the soil surrounding the home. Foundation Cracks can also be caused from settlement, or from improper techniques used during the initial construction of the home.

      What About Sticking Windows & Doors?

      When you have windows and doors in your home that are difficult to open or close, it is likely a warning sign of an underlying structural problem. If you notice sticking windows and doors this in your home, it is important to act quickly and not put off getting the problem looked at and corrected. The longer you wait, the more likely it becomes that additional damage to the structural integrity of your home may occur. Other problems you may notice along with sticking windows and doors could be interior and exterior cracks along window and door frames.

      What Are Carbon Fiber Wall Supports?

      Carbon fiber is a high-strength durable strip of fabric that never loses its shape. This type of fiber is virtually unbreakable. That is why this material can be extremely useful when it comes to fixing leaning or bowed basement walls. This is a common structural problem that is caused from excessive pressure in the earth pushing on the foundation walls. Eventually, the pressure is too much and the wall will crack or bow into the home. The old way of fixing the problem was to use steel I-beams, but this method has proven to be ineffective and not as durable as it should be over the years.
