WARNING SIGNS and SYMPTOMS of Foundation Damage

We often receive calls from people who have noticed cracks in their foundations or slabs, garage flooring, and patios. Concrete is subject to cracking and many times it is a completely normal occurrence. Sometimes…. its something more. SYMPTOMS of foundation settling may include:

You may have encountered one of more of these warning signs. Unfortunately, these are common problems in southern California, and many people do not know where to turn for a solution. Chris M. Cobb Construction Services, Inc. has performed hundreds of inspections over the years. We know what to look for in recognizing problems related to foundation failure and those concerns that are not.

THE HELICAL ANCHOR FOUNDATION REPAIR SYSTEM

If you do need us, the repairs are relatively simple. Here's how it works: Helical anchors are drilled into the earth, down to substantial soil below. Brackets are attached to the concrete foundation at intervals in the damaged area. A jack lifts the foundation to the required position. It's then firmly bolted to the bracket, which transfers the structure's load to the stable strata.

  • FASTER INSTALLATION THAN OTHER METHODS
