Foundation Repair Tampa
Foundation Repair Tampa is a word no homeowner or business owner wants to hear and for good reason. There is no such thing as a easy or cheep Foundation Repair Project. The number #1 cause of Foundation failure is directly related to water. If you have water around your structure, draining past your foundation or negative grade that directs water towards your foundation, than one thing is for sure. If not properly corrected you will need a Foundation Repair Contractor in the future and considering I own the top Foundation Repair & Engineering Company in Florida (Foundation Masters, LLC).
Most Foundation Repairs in Tampa, FL and Florida are a direct result of poor drainage and/or poor construction witch allows water to accumulate around your foundation. That’s why Foundation Waterproofing and Drainage is key to long term performance of your foundation. Foundation Masters, LLC has the best piering system and these piering systems can detect voids in the ground as the piers are being installed. These piers can also be Pressure Grout Pumped at time of installation or ten years down the road, saving tens of thousands to homeowners. The link to this story in Tampa (http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/07/21/massive-sinkhole-threatens-homes-in-florida/) is a perfect example of the benefit of our piering system capabilities. This house could have been saved and that would have saved the home owner thousands of dollars.
