Pier & Beam/Crawlspace Repair
What is a Pier & Beam Foundation?
10 Signs of a Problem Crawlspace
Causes of Pier & Beam Failure
There are many possible causes of pier & beam failure. Moisture is a key issue. If your drainage system was installed incorrectly, it will have a negative effect on your foundation. Texas soil is known to be expansive in nature. The constant expanding and contracting can cause your foundation to move as little as a half an inch to 8 whole inches! This shifting will result in cracks in your floors, interior and exterior walls and ceiling. Concrete is durable and hard but it is not impervious to water. If you experience a plumbing leak that persists for a long time, it can effect your foundation. A water bill that has skyrocketed unexpectedly is a sign of a sneaky leak that you must get a handle on.
