The integrity of your home’s foundation is crucial to the well-being of your house. A cracked, bulging, or sinking foundation must be repaired before the rest of your structure becomes unsound. Foundation failure, even relatively minor foundation damage, can lead to large repairs and expensive costs down the road. The professionals at Accurate Shoring & Foundation specialize in concrete foundation support and repairs and house leveling for residential and commercial structures.
We understand the moisture variations in Louisiana’s clay soil is a cause for foundation problems. Just as the earth swells when over saturated by heavy rains, the soil contracts as temperatures rise. During periods of dry weather, moisture in the soil evaporates which causes the soil to shrink. The foundation, especially concrete slabs, will then sink if voids are in the space between the dirt and the footings. The strength of the foundation will then be compromised and the foundation will start to settle, shift, or possibly crack.
