Garage Column Cracks
Do you have cracks in your garage columns? Garage column cracks are a sign that your Alabama home needs foundation repairs. Your garage column is an important part of your home because it serves as a load bearing column to hold up your garage. At Nichols / Grout Tech, we can fix your garage column cracks and provide long lasting support for your garage.
Because these are the main supports of the structure, making them stable is a key aspect of owning a safe garage. This is even more necessary in the case of having a living area above your garage. Garage column cracks are often caused by poor soil compaction beneath the column and making the column susceptible to slipping into the unstable soil and cracking. These are a dangerous problem that should be taken care of as quickly as possible. You need a professional foundation contractor, like Nichols / Grout Tech to handle this situation.
Garage Crack Repair in Alabama
Our professionals can come in and survey the damage that has been done to your garage and determine what the best solution to fix it would be. We look for separations from the door, walls rotating outward, and cracks in the bricks.
There are many times that garage column cracks can point to a bigger problem involving the foundation of your garage or home. This would mean that more foundation repair is necessary. That is why you need a professional foundation contractor to come in and assess the situation so that all of the problems are handled appropriately to ensure no more damage done to your home.
The most common solution to handle garage column cracks is helical pier installation. We want to ensure that you get the best repair available, so we install waterproofing, and anchoring products in the industry today. Nichols / Grout Tech uses only the best Earth Contact Products (ECP) helical piers on your home. The helical piers are inserted into the ground on the side of your garage column and are used to push the columns of your garage back up. Lifting the column of your garage will seal any cracks that may be present in the column and prevent the garage from sinking any further into the previously unstable soil.
