A local firm, Al Sanchez Construction has the tools, technology, and expertise to ensure any job is completed with minimal time and money. Erosion is just one cause of foundation issues. Many homes have improper drainage that causes areas of a home to sink. Water washes sand and dirt away from a foundation’s piers thus causing them to drop. This kind of problem results in one section of property to shed a few inches, causing all of the structural members of the house to be out of level with the remainder of the house. This problem is one of the main explanations why new drywall cracks are visible around corners in the home. If you live in New Orleans or perhaps the surrounding area and require house leveling, we’re professionals who will help!
Working under a property is a dangerous job that requires professional equipment and experienced workers. When a foundation is damaged, some structural members may need to be replaced. This often includes floor joists and band boards which may also be damaged. Since the house is out-of-level, jacking the structural members is frequently essential. Jacking the first foundation allows installers to exchange lumber and ensure the original foundation’s level is intact. We also replace mortar and repoint piers.
As time passes, homes often shift, and this causes mortar to fall. If the mortar isn’t replaced, the bricks eventually come apart. This may lead to greater costs over time, and fixing the problem is important to prevent further damages. Al Sanchez Construction has been doing business for many years and has the expertise to fix all foundation repairs.
