Completing Crucial Foundation Repair at a Residence in Rowlett, TX

There’s no getting around fixing foundation damage. For some of our clients, foundation repair is a preventive measure to avoid further damage in the future. For others, it’s an absolute necessity; otherwise, continuing to live in their home would be unsafe.

For our client in Rowlett, it was the latter. Their house had major foundation issues that needed to be resolved right away. Large trees closely surrounding their house suck out too much moisture from the clay underneath. They also had poor drainage which caused erosion.

They already had some foundation work done prior but couldn’t afford a complete repair, and that ended up failing. Fortunately, the homeowner was able to get some support to get a complete repair this time.

Installing Piers in Rowlett, TX

If these cracks and gaps are any indication of foundation damage, there’s no doubt about the severity of the damage and the urgent need for repair.

We installed piers under the entire front half of the house.

This means we had to work on the interior as well. We had to take up the floors in the living room and 2 front bedrooms.

To ensure that the trees won’t cause any more foundation damage in the future, we also installed root barriers.

This was a rigorous project given the nature of the foundation damage and it required us moving things around a lot, but we were able to complete this in a couple of days. The peace of mind of not having an immediate safety hazard with a heavily damaged foundation is priceless.
