What is tunneling? 

The majority of new homes are built on a slab on grade. This can be problematic if your home is built on top of clay-dense soil, where the slab is exposed to shifting soil. The shifting of soil is one of many issues that can cause damage to your slab foundation. When pier and beam foundations are present, it is (generally) easy to access the problem directly, given the elevation of the structure from the foundation. With slab foundations, it is not quite so easy. Without tunneling, our repair teams would have to access the issues through the interior of the property. With tunneling, repair teams can access the issue directly and avoid accessing it through the interior.

What are the benefits of tunneling? 

Tunneling offers you a non-intrusive way to get your foundation repaired, without having to cause any costly damage to the interior. This includes damage to tiles, carpets, floorboards, or any other flooring material. This means that you do not incur additional, unnecessary costs to get your foundation repaired. Tunneling also offers you a repair solution that will not drastically affect your day-to-day life. In other words, it saves both time and money!

What causes the need for foundation repairs? 

If you require tunneling, you likely own a slab on grade foundation. While these kinds of foundations are relatively inexpensive when compared to pier and beam foundations, they can become worn or damaged as a result of many factors, such as intrusive tree roots, exposure to excess water, earthquakes, or shifting soil. If you notice any signs of damage to your foundation, you should contact us immediately.
