Unraveling a house can occur due to various factors. One of the most important factors is the concrete slab. If it is not stable, it will weaken the structure and lead to higher repair costs. Therefore, you should consider a foundation repair service if your home is not level.
Improperly installed piers
Improperly installed piers can affect the stability of a home. They must be spaced 5 to 6 feet apart to provide adequate support. In addition, they are easier to repair than a slab foundation.
Improperly installed piers can lead to foundation problems, including sagging floors, cracks, and beam decay. Because older Houston homes usually have wooden beams, improperly installed piers can result in structural issues. Excess moisture under a home can also lead to the rotting and decay of wooden elements, including beams.
