It’s important to build a home on a firm foundation. This fact has several literal and figurative interpretations, but it can be challenging for homeowners to know just how firm their foundation really is. Whether you’re dealing with slab cracks or basement damage—and yes, some homes in Pflugerville have basements—it’s your responsibility to protect your home and family. It can be scary to find signs of foundation damage, but the team at Centex Foundation Repair is here to help you protect and improve the safety and health of your home.
Here are a few signs of a bad foundation.

Concrete Slab Repair
A home built on a slab foundation may experience settling that leads to water intrusion, cracks, sloping floors, and other problems. As a slab settles, cracks may begin to appear. If you’re noticing any signs of slab settlement, a professional evaluation from a CenTex expert will determine its cause. Slabs often settle because of:
Consistent hydrostatic pressure in the surrounding soil
Contraction and expansion of the soil
Leaks and water damage
Flooding and storms
Tree root intrusion
We use helical piles to repair concrete slab damage, offering fast installation and great results. These piles may be installed directly through the slab to support and lift it back to its maximum level.
We also have options for raising slabs through a process known as soil injection. Here, a soil/cement mixture is forced under the sunken slab, filling voids and lifting the concrete back to its original position. Call today to find out about this fast, clean, and minimally disruptive process.
Pier and Beam Foundations
At CenTex, we offer a range of pier and beam foundation repair solutions. To fix damaged pier and beam foundations, we use a steel push pier system to elevate the foundation and the home’s structure. These steel push piers are superior for structural repairs on foundations that have settled due to swelling/shrinking clays, organic soils, soil compaction, and soil erosion. This system stabilizes and supports a home’s load-bearing walls, transferring the structure’s weight from non-resistant soil to highly stable steel piers.
After the installation has been completed, each pier is individually load tested. Push piers don’t rely on friction for support, unlike other foundation repair methods. This is one of the most used foundation repair systems, and we’d like to tell you all about it. Call today for more details.
If you are beginning to notice foundation issues, it’s better to resolve them now than it is to put them off until later. Your home and family’s safety is at stake, so don’t wait to make these important repairs. The problem won’t go away on its own; in fact, it will only get worse with time.
