Temple Foundation Repair
Standing almost equidistant from Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio, Temple, Texas is a small city with a lot to offer. Residents appreciate how an easy drive gets them to any of Texas’s three largest cities.
They also like how an even quicker trip north or south puts them in Waco or Austin, respectively. Beyond being so desirably situated, though, Temple has plenty of assets of its own.
Temple’s Baylor Scott and White Medical Center, for instance, is one of the region’s largest and best-equipped teaching hospitals. Although growing rapidly, Temple still features a small-town feeling that makes it an especially appealing place to live for many. At CenTex, we are proud of the work we do to repair and protect foundations and homes throughout the city.
Foundation Damage is Common All Over Temple
Life in Temple is not always as pleasant and carefree as might be hoped, though. As with many other communities in Central Texas, much of Temple stands atop clay-heavy soil that swells and shrinks aggressively when it absorbs water and subsequently dries out.
The dangers inherent in these expansive soils most often become apparent when they cause damage to foundations. Although sound foundation and drainage system design will help, homes in Temple often succumb to problems caused by expansive soil.
Simple hydrostatic pressure from water piling up underground often adds to the burdens foundations in Temple’s face. Even homes that are maintained carefully and consistently can end up with foundations that need repairs. Whenever any sort of foundation problem arises, we at CenTex are ready to help.
Familiarity With Common Signs of Foundation Damage Pays Off
Temple residents can protect their homes by staying alert for the most common signs of foundation problems. Recognizing any of these early on and seeking help quickly will keep the damage and expense to a minimum. Some of the issues that most often signal the need for foundation inspections or repairs in Temple are:
- Visible cracks — When a foundation cracks or settles, the structure above it often does the same. Cracks that appear on walls, ceilings or the exposed part of a foundation almost always indicate more serious underlying problems.
- Misaligned doors or windows — If part of a foundation settles, window and door frames above it can become distorted or even damaged. Doors that no longer open and close smoothly or windows which stick and hitch are common symptoms of foundation damage.
- Unaccustomed pest problems — If pests like roaches or ants suddenly start showing up in a home, cracks opened up by foundation problems will sometimes be responsible. Should pests keep returning even after removal, a deeper look at the situation will often reveal foundation damage.
- Obvious bowing or settling — Some foundation problems are so serious that they become difficult to overlook. If certain walls of a home start to seem slanted, an inspection will almost always be in order. Should the sinking of a foundation leave floors within a house slanted and uneven, having a professional take a look will be wise.
Call CenTex for a free, comprehensive inspection whenever issues like these suggest your home’s foundation might be damaged. Our highly trained inspectors know what to look for and provide transparent, honest reports every time. Those in the market for homes anywhere in Temple also qualify for our special $95 inspection price for buyers.
A Full Range of Top-Quality Temple Foundation Repair Services
CenTex has been Central Texas’s leading Temple foundation repair company for more than a quarter of a century. Our extensive experience with resolving foundation problems caused by the region’s expansive soils and other distinctive issues makes us the best in the business.
Whenever the need arises for Temple foundation repair, CenTex should always be the first choice. Our three distinct approaches to foundation repair cover all the possibilities.
- CENTERBEAM STEEL PIER™
No other company can offer our proprietary, patented centerbeam steel pier™ repair solution. unlike other steel pier repair techniques, our centerbeam steel pier stands directly beneath your home’s slab foundation grade beam. That allows us to drive the pier deeper than conventional, side-jacked installation permits.
As a result, our centerbeam steel pier is stronger and supports foundations longer than any other house leveling and repair technique. The transferable lifetime warranty that backs every centerbeam steel pier project reflects our confidence in this exclusive technology. Although it costs more than our other slab repair services, the peace of mind our centerbeam steel pier provides makes it the best choice for homeowners who want the best.
- Concrete Pressed Pilings
Pressed pilings made from concrete have been used for decades to repair foundations all across Central Texas. At CenTex, we have taken this affordable, time-tested approach to a higher level than any of our competitors. We drive strong, pre-cast cylinders as deep as the ground allows.
As with our high-end centerbeam steel pier process, the concrete pilings we install support your home’s grade beam from directly underneath. Our lifetime transferable service agreement makes this an even more cost-effective option. The blend of effectiveness, affordability, and longevity our concrete pilings provide makes them perfect for many homeowners in Temple.
- Pier and Beam Repair
Older homes in Temple often stand atop pier and beam foundations, a design that has long since given way to concrete slabs. Many companies in Central Texas have little or no experience with repairing pier and beam foundations, but CenTex is different.
We are just as comfortable with pier and beam leveling and repair as with working on slab foundations. That allows us to offer the most generous warranty of all on the pier and beam foundation repair and house leveling in Temple. Call CenTex to make sure your pier and beam home receives the support it deserves.
