What Is A Concrete Slab?
A concrete slab is a rebar enforced structural component, built onsite using a form-work boxing mold.
A slab, typically 3″,4″ or 6″ inches thick, is intended for floors and ceilings that span between support beams, girders, or columns. Thinner slabs are more commonly used for exterior paving.
Concrete slabs can be damaged by a variety of causes, such as earthquakes and soil movement. Over time, a cracked slab can lead to a variety of problems; including injuries, pest invasion, and water damage.
If the crack or damage remains uncorrected, this may causes problems in other parts of the concrete, eventually leading to loss of structural integrity and a very costly repair process.
California Foundation Works can inspect the condition and will apply the best solution to turn your broken concrete slab into a solid slab floor or foundation. Here in Southern California, this is particularly important.
The following symptoms are indicative of a damaged slab:
Cracked Windows Or Door Frames
Cracks In Slab Foundation
Bumps In Carpet
Whether you need to repair your slab for the installation of a new floor, or you have more severe slab damage, we will provide the best slab settlement repair in Los Angeles and the surrounding areas.
We start by sawing the old slab along the cracked area. The area cut out extends 15” from each side of the crack. Before the new slab is poured, the structure will be reinforced and reconnected using epoxy gel and rebar.
Replacing your cracked slab is an effective solution. A new structural slab provides a flatter surface and increases the overall stability of your floor.
