Residents in Carrollton, VA should not have to worry about foundation problems in their homes. However, due to the heavy clay soil in the area and the large amount of rain that often blows in from the coast, your Carrollton, VA home may be vulnerable to foundation problems. The soil in Carrollton, VA is expansive which means that when it gets overly saturated, it will heave and when dry, it will shrink. This constant shifting and moving of the soil will also cause the foundation of your home to shift and move. This will create structural damage throughout the entire home. It is important to be aware of some of the signs of foundation settlement and failure. Some of the things to look for in and around your home are:
If you see any of these sign in your home, it is important to contact a professional to come and inspect your home and foundation. Atlas Master Companies has the experience in the Carrollton, VA area to give you a free inspection and offer you the best foundation repair solutions for your needs.

Atlas Master Companies also installs Smart Vent flood vents for their customers located in the floodplain of Carrollton, VA. The door on the vent is latched until flood waters enter. If the vent senses flood water, it lifts the internal floats. By doing this, the vent unlatches and opens the door. This will allow water and debris to escape. This will equalize the pressure on either side of the wall, effectively protecting your foundation and home.
Atlas Master Companies also offers concrete leveling services to keep your foundation at the proper level. If you notice sinking concrete in your home, garage, driveway, or other concrete slabs, contact us. We use polyfoam slab jacking to get your concrete level again. This method involved injected polyurethane foam into the affected concrete. This foam expands to fill all of the voids beneath the concrete to lift and level it. It also strengthens the concrete to prevent future sinking and settlement.
