Advanced foundation repair methods can vary depending on the type of foundation you have and extent of the damage.
In many cases, the latest advanced foundation repair methods in general use in the industry will come close to restoring your foundation to like new. The professionals at Granite Foundation Repair work with you to select the most reliable, proven, and advanced foundation repair method that will meet your foundation repair needs at an affordable price.
Sometimes we find that foundation repair has been postponed for far too long. There is a general rule of thumb used by engineers that regardless of the advanced foundation repair method used, only one half to two thirds of elevation loss will be regained. This is particularly true when foundations have dropped in excess of four inches.
The reason for an inability to regain all of the elevation loss is that in addition to foundation movement, walls, ceiling and roofs have moved. With time and heat, the wooden members tend to take a rigid set. While we can lift a foundation in minutes, it will take weeks for the rest of the structure to adjust to the new foundation elevations.
