Foundation problems are a serious threat to the safety, value, and lifespan of your home. The longer you wait to handle them, the worse they can get, resulting in even more long-term damage and costly repairs. Most people put off looking into foundation trouble for a variety of common reasons:
- Fear of getting bad news about the condition of their home
- Fear of high repair costs and potential financial setbacks
- Hope that the problems will just go away by themselves over time
- Lack of confidence about knowing where to look for signs of damage or how to recognize them

Now let’s talk about what to look for. Every home is going to settle over time and show a few normal signs of aging. What you want to watch out for are things like doors and windows that begin to stick, cracked or uneven floors, water collecting inside or outside your foundation, or cracks in your masonry or interior walls. These conditions can all point to underlying structural problems that need correcting to prevent more damage, and your Olshan Technician can quickly help you sort out real danger signs from everyday wear and tear.
Remember, if you see anything suspicious, it’s important to act fast, before the damage spreads.
Level sunken concrete of any type in minutes
Uneven concrete around your home is another important warning sign of potential structural problems. If the soil is shifting enough to crack and move the visible concrete (say in driveways, pool decks, or walkways, for example), it’s possible that hidden parts of your foundation could also be at risk. Again, with Olshan, it won’t cost you anything to find out. You may be pleasantly surprised to learn how affordable it can be, not only to get things back in order for today, but also to ensure years of worry-free living in your home in the future.
Cracked, sunken concrete can be an eyesore, and it’s also a trip hazard. That’s why we offer PolyLift – an environmentally safe foam that we inject underneath any concrete slab to help restore it. Unlike messy, outdated mudjacking, PolyLift gets the job done with minimal disruption. PolyLift saves you even more money because there’s no need for expensive concrete replacement. The entire process only takes a few minutes to complete, leaving you with beautiful, even surfaces you can enjoy for years. Here are some of the surfaces you can quickly and inexpensively renew with PolyLift:
- Concrete slabs
- Garage Floors
- Pool decks
