Fort Worth Foundation Repair
Foundation Repair in Fort Worth
We utilize the Brown Method of foundation repair to expose the perimeter beam of your home or commercial building. We then create a shaft and pour concrete with a reinforcing rebar to strengthen that pier. We then pour concrete inside the entire shaft which yields a reinforced pier to stabilize your foundation. We then backfill the area and your installation is complete. This method gives you the results of steel-reinforced concrete through the pier – a solid structure to hold your home and office stable.

Block & Base (aka Block and Beam) Foundation Repair
Many older homes in Texas, especially around the Fort Worth area have block & base or block & beam foundations. These homes have brick or concrete columns or piers that hold up the home in staggered areas and leave the home “open” underneath – without a crawl space or slab. These foundations must be maintained, and old homes are especially prone to issues with drought or flooding as they happen. Our experts have fixed many block & base foundations in the area, and we’re here to help you preserve the history underneath your home if at all possible. Give us a call to discuss and we’ll have an expert come take a look.
Concrete Leveling & Mudjacking in Fort Worth
Mudjacking is a term used to describe the process by which concrete is leveled using a substrate injected below or behind the slab to raise the lowered portion into level again. While the substance resembles mud, we’re not just shooting a bunch of dirt under your foundation. The process uses a blend of soil, portland cement, and other ingredients we can liquify and inject via smaller non-invasive holes that are then sealed back over to hide where the work was completed. It’s important that the company you choose to perform mudjacking are experts in diagnosing the issue, and evaluating the suitability of your existing concrete slab to handle the mudjacking process – our team can help – just give us a call.
