Job Description

This property, located in Mission Viejo, California, was experiencing both interior and exterior foundation damage. The soil movement beneath the home was so severe that the rear left section of the foundation had settled 2.5 inches into the ground.

The perimeter footings of this floating slab foundation separated from interior slab at the stress point. Inside the home, there were many visible signs of foundation damage including separation of tile floors, reveals at windows/doors, and cracking of drywall.

After a free, no-obligation inspection, the homeowners awarded the job to Foundation Technology. Shortly after pulling the appropriate permits, reports and plans, the job began. From start to finish we were able to permanently stabilize the foundation within one week!
