Repairing something is easy if you understand the cause and can find the right solution to solve that problem. 

If your home’s foundation begins to fail or is in some way compromised, this deteriorating condition will begin to affect the home’s stability, safety and  market value. If you suspect that your home may have foundation problems you may want to have a professional foundation inspection.

Concrete Foundation Repair & Inspection ArizonaIf you don’t repair or address these symptoms the damage will continue to grow and will get worse and may even threaten the structural safety of your home. Concrete Repairman can and will diagnose your home’s specific problems quickly and explain the nature of the problem and the proper solution to fix the issue with your properties foundation.

James Belville will explain the problems your foundation is undergoing and explain, in detail, what the major cause is and how to prevent the continued progress of these changes \ failures of your properties foundation.

With over 30 years of experience finishing concrete, diagnosing and repairing foundation problems, James will, in la mans terms, explain the source of the problem and the proper solution to the problem your home’s foundation has.

  • Things you want look for are chipping paint, cracks, paint bubbles, spalled concrete or any other signs that things aren’t quite right. If the paint just falls off as you touch it this means there is excessive moisture in the concrete. Other things to look for are horizontal cracks , fractures or separations in the concrete. Signs of vertical movement problems you will notice on the inside of your home that include any cracks in the floor or walls especially around windows and doorways. Don’t be lead astray by other contractors who will give you the excuse, “Your home was built on expansive soil” or “Your home was built on farmland” these are the two most widely used excuses given by inexperienced contractors, and structural engineers, yes, engineers, who aren’t sure how the elements affect your home. Expansive Soil is real, but only affects a very low percentage of homes. Get the facts before you spend $500, or more, on a engineers report that suggest a “scientific solution,” that has nothing to do with solving the actual problem. They suggest to put a fan in your attic to reduce the moisture that is not under your floor. Don’t believe it! It is an up sell, for only $10,000 to $20,000. It is total crap. 
  • We give you the right solution based on facts, not fiction.

Commercial Concrete Floor Finishing & Repair

A newly refinished concrete floor can increase the lease value of any commercial building or space you own.

We are professional concrete floor resurfacing experts and on this project in Gilbert Arizona we were able to totally restore the floor in this commercial building.

To properly resurface a floor the entire surface needs to be prep’d. This involves removing / stripping any paint or coating that may have been applied to the floor previously. Once the entire floor is exposed it can be inspected for any signs of damage or cracks. Any cracking that is found is the stitched to prevent further separation and cracking. After the area has been inspected and repaired as need it can now be checked for any un-level spots that may need attention. Floor leveler is then applied prior to sealing the concrete floor.

Once the concrete has been sealed it can now be coated and finished. There are so many options at this stage that produce amazing results. A wide range of colors, textures and finishes can be all be applied to your floor to produce the look you desire or need.

Making an Old Concrete Floor Look Great

We are concrete resurfacing experts and on this project in Gilbert Arizona we gave this warehouse space floor a brand new look. High traffic areas can show signs of wear and can easily be restored with the right equipment and experience.

First the surface of the concrete floor needs to be cleaned and prep’d by grinding the surface to expose the concrete. This will remove any surface stains and dirt and will expose the raw concrete and open the floor’s pores so that the floor can then be finished.

After the floor has be prep’d we then apply a primer to seal the floor to prevent stains from appearing in the future. Once the primer is cured we can then seal the floor giving it an attractive and low maintenance appearance.

Slab Stitching – Saving an Interior Floor

Slab Stitching Project Gilbert Arizona | Photo 01

Taking on a restoration project has its surprises especially when it comes to having to fix and repair cracks in your concrete floors of the home. This home renovation in Gilbert Arizona is a perfect example on how the flooring the home could be saved and restored.

The flooring was cracked in a few areas and was the result of a foundation issue that needed to be taken care of. After the work had been completed we were able to repair the damage to the floors inside the home.

Slab Stitching is the process of just that, stitching your floor back together. Parallel cuts are made in to the concrete along the length of the crack. Metal re-enforcement bars are placed in the cuts and then filled.

These stitches are put in place to prevent the crack from coming back. The steel bars hold the floor together and in place.

Once all the stitches are in place we can now patch the crack in the floor and repair the damage.

What Does the Inside of a Foundation Stem Wall Look Like?

If  you have ever wondered what is inside a home’s Stem Wall this is your chance. Recently we did a foundation repair in Gilbert Arizona that was a good opportunity to show and explain the importance of maintaining your home’s foundation. Here are a few photos that show you what is actually inside a stem wall.

On this job we had to remove more than usual due to the extent of the damage we found on the properties foundation. 

In this photo you can see we had to expose the oxidized rebar the entire length of the wall and you can see how rusted the rebar inside the stem wall is. These 2 bars are / were originally 1/2 inch in diameter. The reason for these 2 steel bars inside your stem wall are to add strength to the concrete. Without them the concrete would simply crack and fall away. If your stem wall is not properly sealed water will seep in and attack these steel bars and cause them to rust. When this happens they begin to expand and push out forcing the concrete to give and start cracking. If you notice cracks in your foundation you could have the same thing going in inside your stem wall.

What to look for …..

videoWhen buying a home there are many things to consider and you want to do all you can to make sure everything is in working order and not in need of repair or additional expense. No one enjoys those types of surprises.

The one thing you want to take the time to look at is the property’s foundation, after all the entire home rest on the foundation. A good solid foundation is important for any home.

If you have decided to purchase a home, take the time and walk around the entire home and take a real close look at the foundation.

Here are somethings to be on the lookout for :

Pay close attention to the paint on the foundation’s stem wall. Is the paint in good condition? Do you notice any paint chipping or flaking? Do you notice any cracks in the paint? Do you notice any bare areas where you can see exposed concrete? Is the stem wall painted below the landscaping / dirt grade? Really take the time to inspect the paint on the home’s foundation.

As you take a close look at the paint on the property’s foundation be on the look out for blisters or bubbles in the paint. If you notice the paint is lifting and separating from the foundation you should be concerned. Inspect these areas more closely and look for signs of moisture in these areas. If it feels damp to the touch, take note and look for other areas with similar appearance.

Take the time and look for any cracks in the foundation and exterior walls. Cracks in the foundation are not normal. If you notice any cracks, take note and ask questions. If you notice any concrete falling off the foundation in any areas you should take notice.

As you continue to look around the exterior of the property look for any cracks on the walls. Pay close attention around the windows and doorways. Cracks are bad and are possible signs of bigger problems.

Also be on the look out for any low points in the landscaping, any signs of areas where water can collect and puddle.

After you have checked the exterior of the home, take a good look at the interior. Take a close look around and be on the look out for any cracks in the walls, more importantly look for any signs of repairs and patching that may have been done to fix or conceal any cracks. Look around windows, doorways and corners. If notice any cracks or signs of cracks, take note.

As you walk through the inside of the home, pay particular attention to the floors. Take a close look and see if there are any cracks in the tile, any high or low points and any other signs that appear to be just not right or level. 

If you notice anything odd as you inspect the property you should have it looked at before making an offer or buying the property. Ignoring these signs can be very costly and you want to be sure that you are making a good investment.

James and his crew made this whole experience painless. My stems had eroded over the years and James came as requested and assessed the damage. He gave us a fair price and his guys showed up on time all four days they were at my house. That is hard to find these days. The job was completed on time and done right. I would recommend this Company strongly.

I called last Thursday and Tiffany set up an appointment for me right away. James Belville arrived on time and gave my foundation an expert inspection, explaining the foundation system to me as he went along. He had some suggestions to extend the service life of our foundation by mitigating any moisture by the stem wall. With a few extensions of gutter drains and moving some vegetation, we can do just that. He is quite the expert (years and years of experience) and very personable. At the end of his inspection, we are confident our home is in excellent shape and will serve us for our lifetime. I highly recommend James and his company is you have any questions/concerns with your home's foundation. I know I will sleep much better at night after his visit. Thank you James for the thorough inspection & discussion.

James is an expert in his field. Came out to my property at 7 in the morning per my request and did a thorough job. Pays attention to detail and very meticulous. James explained in detail what the issue was, the root cause of the issue, and how to have it addressed in the most simple, and cost-effective way. I was concerned I would be quoted ridiculous estimates by foundation experts but James came up with such a simple and most appropriate solution for our foundation settling issue. Honest with his work and very doable price estimates. Liked it.

James came out to a house we purchased to check out some potential foundation weakness noted in the inspection. Even after realizing there was no potential work for him there, he took the time to thoroughly go through the home checking out the structure for soundness and offering suggestions to ward off future damage in questionable areas. Wow! Didn't have to, but he did. I was actually disappointed he couldn't help us any further because I had an immediate instinct of trust and genuine concern! Thank you James for your help! Will call again if ever the need should arise....
