Foundation Repair – San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos & More…
Pier and beam foundation repairs are becoming less common when constructing new homes. However, there are still many old, historic houses and buildings across San Antonio, Texas built on top of a structural network of concrete blocks and wooden beams.
Even though pier and beam foundations have many advantages, they also come with their own set of unique problems that, without a specialist to help, can be very tricky to solve.
Some of the main problems people experience with pier and beam foundations in San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Kerrville, Fredericksburg and Seguin, include mold and mildew, rotting and even termites. All of these issues can cause serious damage to the structural integrity of the building. If left too late, the damage may become beyond repair and force you to leave. You’ll suspect that there could be problems with your pier and beam foundations, because there could be creaking as you walk over the floor, it could slope or feel spongy.

How We Can Help
Most pier and beam foundation repairs can be solved using any combination of the following methods, depending on how serious the problem is.
We could recommend strengthening if we discover cracks or your floors have created a noticeable slope. When this is the case, we may install concrete pedestal piers for your pier and beam foundation repair. These are solid concrete columns that are designed to solidify your foundation’s support and maintain level floors.
Our concrete pedestal piers are constructed on-site, allowing us to control uniformity and positioning so that we have each one in its precise location. Once in place, the concrete is allowed to cure and they are then securely in position to do their job for the long haul.
For residential homes in certain instances, we may add beams for the purposes of either replacing old deteriorating lumber, or to aid in weight distribution and stabilization of your building’s foundation. This is because it adds a large surface area to the existing pier and beam foundation, transferring any stress across the new, stable piers.
When allowed to build up in the wrong areas, water can be the cause of many problems. Drainage correction will prevent your home from suffering further cracks and mold growth. Failing to get this solved can allow water to remain underneath of your structure, jeopardizing the pier and beam foundations.
Your drainage problems may also be caused by neglecting the contour or grading of your lawn. If your lawn or garden’s soil bed drains towards the structure, water can build up and cause major problems.
Trained and Experienced Experts
Our team of foundation repair experts have years of experience and have also worked extensively with concrete slab foundation repairs. We can identify the root cause fairly quickly, and we can then act fast to save your home from suffering any further damage.
Our services include house leveling, structural damage repair and much more to address any problems that may arise.
Pier and beam foundations have two types: Some have a concrete grade beam surrounding the perimeter of the structure and some do not. Concrete perimeter beams are able to be raise on steel or concrete pilings.
We can adjust your floors by lifting beams off of their support piers, then installing or adjusting with steel shims. If your beams have failed completely, we may need to add additional support or replace them entirely. Replacement of any improper pier or shim material may be necessary in the crawlspace located under the floor as part of the pier and beam repair. Shim material should consist of solid concrete cap blocks, and steel plate shims.
Finally, we are also experts at improving the ventilation from your pier and beam foundations. This will reduce the amount of rotting wood and moisture building up and control humidity under the structure.
For your peace of mind, our work comes guaranteed.
Site Shoring In rare circumstances, we may recommend site shoring for your pier and beam repairs when it’s clear that the existing foundation cannot take any more stress.
Mobile Home Foundation Repair
Alongside our other pier and beam repair service, we also cater to mobile home foundation repairs across the San Antonio, New Braunfels, San Marcos and Seguin areas. Most of the time, your mobile home will be sitting upon stacked blocks, slabs or runners, requiring proper anchoring so the home remains in place during wind and storms.
If you notice that the floor of your mobile home is becoming uneven and sloping to one side, you really need to call an expert in to check the foundation, because over the long term, this will to lead to many other problems.
One of the signs that you may need expert help is a sloping floor, high spots in the floor, peaks and valleys that allow certain furniture to be a little wobbly. You’ll also notice that your windows and doors may not open or close properly, or may even swing open unassisted. You may even see cracks in the floor, through your vinyl, where the floor has shifted. Also, the windows and doors of your mobile home can start to separate due to lack of stability at the soil level.
While it’s unlikely that you’ll experience all these problems at the same time, if you have a problem with your foundations, it’s highly likely that you’ll have at least one or two of these problems.

Honest evaluation of my foundation cracks. They said it was minor seasonal expansion and contraction, not major structural issues. Allen’s Foundation advised against spending money on piers saying that the effects would be minimal and not worth the money spent. They want to return in 1 yr to see if conditions have worsened. They could have taken my money and ran, but were honest and transparent – these are the types of Business owners we need more of in this world.
I decided to remodel my house and I was finding a registered company that gives 100% guarantee at minimum possible cost. I left with no choice except to choose Allen’s Foundation Repair. I was amazed by the results. I got what I wanted. I will highly recommend Allen’s Foundation Repair to everyone.

How To Protect Your Home
The best way to ensure that your building is safe from future damage is by protecting the foundation. One of the main causes of mold growth that leads to you needing pier and beam repairs is poor drainage facilities. When you install proper drainage, you prevent water from collecting underneath of your home. Because things are dry, mold and mildew will not grow and proliferate.
For homes with slab or concrete foundations, you may develop what’s known as hairline cracks. You need to identify these as soon as possible by giving your foundation a good look and make note of any potential cracks.
If you spot anything that looks out of the ordinary, you need to get in touch with us as soon as possible to assess the need for repairs. If you try and fix it yourself, you may not treat it properly and end up having a very costly bill to fix it all over again in the future.
It’s all about taking the necessary precautions before they happen. Our pier and beam repair team can prevent any issues occurring before they become an issue later down the line, saving you lots of time and money in the process.
