One of the prime catalysts behind home foundation issues is settling soil. Over time, as soil compacts and settles under the foundation of your home, it fails to offer friction support for the weight atop it. Slowly but surely, gravity pushes your home down, putting stress and strain on the foundation. This shows through in the form of cracks and sagging around your home.
For more severe cases where homes have sunk, the correct technique for restoring stability is underpinning in Wichita, KS. This technique—also called piering—involves driving steel rods down through the soil until they hit bedrock. The rods are secured to the foundation of your home at the top and reinforced by bedrock at the bottom, ensuring shifting and settling won’t continue. This process is effective for concrete leveling in Wichita, KS—even in extreme cases.
