How Foundation deformities occur
Some people can say that there is no need knowing how and why deformities on foundations take place since a professional can always fix the problems. That could be true but, remember, information can always save you from a lot of inconveniences and losses. As you will find out herein, there are some causes of foundation deformities impacted by mistakes during construction. And, such can be easily prevented if you know what constitutes a proper foundation. Below, we discuss some of the causes of foundation problems and how they occur.
Most of the problems experienced in the foundation can be traced back to the time of construction. And, this is a common occurrence, especially in buildings that are designed and constructed by amateurs. Some architects and builders are not always very keen when laying foundations. In many cases, foundation are erected in a haste, without a proper understanding of the environmental conditions and all the recommended construction procedures. As a result of this, the foundations are never strong enough to hold the structure and soon, start to develop deformities.
Besides poor construction, cracks and deformities on the foundation can also be impacted by ageing. If the structure is too old, the foundation will no doubt become weak and begin to deteriorate. On the other hand, foundations can also experience deformities as a result of poor environmental and weather elements like, floods. Although sometimes floods are inevitable, poor construction and effects of ageing can be easily averted. And, grouting is the best approach to reviving the strength and appeal of your foundation.
What Does Grouting Do?
In the past, people have tried various measures to fix foundation deformities but, quite a number have never been successful. Grouting is the only structural repair technique that has proven effective in fixing deformities experienced in foundations. The procedure entails the creation of drills, stretching deep into the foundation. However, the length of the drills is usually based on the damage and level of impact. After the drills are created, the surfaces are then secured by sealing and nailing, using grouting.
If grouting is conducted effectively and, by using quality materials, the foundation will be accorded added support. Professional grouting can extend the lifespan of your foundation for a period of up to ten years. The procedure will also revive the appearance of the foundation so your property does not look too old and poorly maintained. However, the foundation will have to be inspected at different intervals to ensure that the remedies are effective.
