A home or other building’s foundation helps maintain structural integrity to keep occupants safe and ensure stability. If you’ve noticed cracks or other damage to your foundation, these could suggest potential issues while lowering property value. Serving Central and Northern New Jersey, Garden State Brickface and Siding provides expert foundation repair and resurfacing and other home improvement services to keep your property in sound condition.
Identifying Foundation Damage
Foundation damage most commonly occurs due to construction on expansive soil. Water leaks can also lead to damage, as well as intense shifts in temperature and floods. To recognize foundation damage, look for the following signs:
- Separation near walls, windows, and doors
- Uneven or cracked floors
- Misaligned doors
- Damaged sheetrock
After a thorough review of your foundation, a member of our team will determine the best method of repair; if we cannot help you, we will do our best to guide you in the right direction. This depends on the type of foundation, its condition, and more. While every foundation repair is different, we may use the following techniques to restore your property:
Minor Crack Repair
Minor foundation cracks are common and do not threaten the safety and stability of your home. However, they should be repaired as soon as possible to stop more extensive damage. Our technician will clean away dirt and debris before preparing the crack to ensure maximum adhesion. Next, fillers are applied and resurfacing is completed if needed.
We also use these techniques to repair retaining walls and planter walls that have been damaged by shifting soil, age, or extreme weather. We’ll ensure the wall is properly anchored, repair its surface, and leave it with a like-new appearance.
Age, the elements, and damage can all affect the appearance of your foundation, making it less attractive and diminishing the value and appeal of a home or commercial building. As this damage accumulates, it can also cause more serious problems. Foundation resurfacing helps halt this damage, restore the appearance of your foundation, and prevent associated concerns such as basement moisture.
Our foundation resurfacing process begins with a thorough cleaning to eliminate any soils or debris. Visible cracks are filled to prevent further deterioration, and a thin layer of cement is applied to smooth the surface. Finally, an attractive finish is applied, allowing homeowners and businesses to choose from the following:
- Cement stucco
- Acrylic stucco
- Stone veneer
Our team will work with you to determine the best options for your property to create a refreshed look and safeguard your foundation against further damage.
