Construction Company Says Slab Repair Can be DIY or Need Professional Attention

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction Inc., ( a foundation repair and foundation construction company, are warning homeowners to get a foundation inspection before beginning on slab repairs. According to the company, an inspection of the foundation can determine the extent of the foundation problem and whether it is a DIY project or if the foundation is in need of professional attention.

An executive at the company stated: “Some cracks in the slab can be repaired in a very simple manner and do not require a foundation expert. But in the situation where experience is needed, Julian Construction can check the condition and help put your slab footing back in order. The following are some symptoms to look for in determining if you have a broken slab: Stretched or buckled linoleum flooring, Unlevel floors, Broken floor tiles, Bumps in carpet, Cracks around windows and door frames, Sloping floors, Domed floors in center of room, Sticky doors or windows that are difficult to open and close.”

Julian De La Torre, owner and founder of Julian Construction, stated: “We cannot stress enough the importance of getting an inspection before starting a project to repair a broken or cracked slab. It could be as simple as getting the supplies and repairing it. But if the damage is bad enough, the project will not help and the work will have to be redone. A professional inspection will tell you exactly what you’re looking at and how to fix it. That way your home’s foundation remains structurally sound.”
