The foundation is the most important part of your Athens home, so when it begins to slope or crack, it is time to get a foundation repair before it gets to be a major problem. Your house is built around its foundation, so if your foundation starts to go out your house can be in danger of collapsing. There are various reasons for why a foundation gets damaged, but its biggest enemy is water. Water causes soil to either swell or contract, and since the foundation is settled on top of the soil, if excess water triggers either one of these, it will upset the home’s settling (causing bulging and sloping). Unpleasant bulging and sloping will be unnoticeable at first, but as long as water keeps swelling and contracting soil the problems hidden from the naked eye will begin to show.
Being able to notice if your home has foundation damage will help you in the long run, because the faster you can catch it the faster you will be able to fix it. One way to be able to tell if you need a foundation repair, is to take a ball and sit it in the middle of the floor, and if it rolls on its own then you have sloped floors. Sloping floors may not be noticeable to the naked eye, but when you use a ball you will begin to see them, and this is a sign of an unsettled foundation. Another good way to tell if you have a sloping or bulging foundation is that if any of your doors get stuck when you open and close them, because they are getting stuck due to a slope in the floor. Also, cracks are the most noticeable way to be able to tell if your foundation is in need of repair.
Today, there are various methods used to help repair your Athens foundation, but in all cases of damaged foundation you will need to call a professional because doing it on your own may worsen the problem. The two popular methods used are steel push piers and helical anchor piers, and both methods need to be installed by a professional. The steel push piers uses a long steel rod that has to be driven into the soil (straight down), and these piers lift the foundation up to it original level (this will fix all cracks in the walls and brick). The helical anchor pier is a similar method, but the rod is shorter and has spiral threads at the bottom (which resembles a screw), and these are driven into the ground at an angle. A foundation repair needs to be completed by a foundation contractor or engineer because they are professionally trained.
