American Standard Foundation Repair has a team of experts with decades of experience using concrete for structural and cosmetic repairs.

High-quality concrete work is the hallmark of a solid and stable home foundation and surrounding driveways, sidewalks, patios, retaining walls, and water control structures. 

Concrete is the standard for heavy-duty, load-bearing material that can be formed to fit a wide variety of terrain and home-design requirements. It works as an unbeatable choice for a solid foundation that lasts for many years and as a custom-designed surface with aesthetic appeal for design choices across the spectrum.

Our nationally certified inspectors can carefully examine your home’s foundation and other concrete surfaces to determine the level and type of repair needed. We select state-of-the-art formulations that work in small and large applications to make foundation structures and hardscaping features better than ever.

Concrete is highly versatile

Concrete has been used in various forms since ancient times. Roman engineers used early mortar formulations to build roads and bridges that still exist today. Modern materials began to be implemented two centuries ago when cement was developed with water and sand to form hard material. Modern science and engineering continue to refine the manufacturing process in ways that provide virtually unlimited options for pouring suitable material that serves multiple construction needs.

Concrete is highly versatile in applications where support and resistance to hydrostatic pressure are essential. Whether in piers, slabs, basement retaining walls, or other structures that hold back or divert water, it resists moisture’s unrelenting pressure. Whereas bricks and blocks can suffer structural damage at mortared joints from extended pressures, concrete provides a more continuous solid surface custom-fitted to provide maximum support.

Concrete outperforms wood materials

Residential concrete is used where strength and stability are important, and is typically reinforced with an internal steel skeletal framework. Steel and concrete work together to provide superior engineering functionality because they have opposite physical reactions to tension and compression. The reinforcing effect of the two materials helps make foundation and load-bearing structures less brittle and longer-lasting.

Concrete outperforms wood materials and even timbers in many ways when used in construction applications around your property. It lasts much longer for curbing and edging without moving and is much easier to maintain and work around. It is impervious to insects, termites, and animal pest intrusion.

Cosmetic concrete applications can be designed in various colors and textures to fit the artistic design choices you make.
