In simple terms, foundation repair means securing the structural integrity of your commercial or residential property. It can involve various processes depending on the type and extent of the damage. Generally, it means placing supports under the property and lifting the foundation back to its place. The process involves raising and stabilizing the foundation. However, the work we end up undertaking depends on the needs of your property.


Various factors such as plumbing leaks, poor drainage, inadequate soil compaction, and climate can cause structural damage to your foundation. This is why it's essential to always be on the lookout and routinely inspect your foundation for signs of damage. Some common indications that you need foundation repair are:


  • Cracks in the foundation, walls and floors: Any type of fractures in your foundation and the surrounding areas mean trouble. Over time, foundations can experience movement, and the acceptable levels of shifting can be crossed, leading to horizontal cracks.

  • Settling or sinking: Foundation issues can cause one side of your property to become lower than the other or the centre to sink. If neglected, these dips and sinks can become more severe, which might necessitate more extensive repairs.

  • Upheaval: Foundation upheaval is when your foundation moves in an upward direction. This process can even affect the interior of your property, including the hallways and doorways.

  • Trouble closing doors: If your doors are sticking, there is most definitely something wrong with your foundation. Your interior doors will stick out at the top, while those on the exterior will drag or hang down.

  • Gaps around windows and doors: When something is not right with your foundation, there might be gaps around your window frames. In some cases, your doors might not latch.

  • Sagging floors: When your property's floors are sagging, dipping or bowing, the problem might lie in your foundation. Sagging floors are dangerous, especially if you have children.

  • Dampness: Dampness in areas in your foundation, such as the crawlspace, points to a definite problem. If ignored, this will worsen and lead to other issues such as the growth of mould.

In case you notice any of these issues or anything else amiss with your property, such as counters that lean away from the walls, please contact Reitano Concrete Ltd immediately. We will inspect the problem and provide you with a free estimate.
