For foundation repairs and structural mortar repair, JSA is here to save the day and save you money – doing the job right the first time.
It doesn’t happen often, but it is the case with JSA Specialists. We provide foundation repair in Sandy Springs and throughout the entire Atlanta area. Our owner, J. Scott Anglin, has been working in foundation repair professionally since he was 15 and now has more than 27 years of experience!
He learned the profession from his father, himself a successful foundation repair business owner. Having a high level of trust in a contractor is difficult to do these days, but JSA is one of the few that earn it. We’ll help you identify the true cause of the problems your home is experiencing, which may or may not be related to the structure of your foundation.
If your home’s foundation is to blame, we’ll provide a permanent solution for making the fix. That’s right – you’ll only have to see us once, and we provide a warranty to back that claim up.
Think about it – how many contractors are willing to come into your home and tell you their services aren’t needed. But, that’s precisely what we’ll do, if that is the appropriate solution to your problem.
Do you like the way your home looks? With many contractors who perform sinking foundation repair in Sandy Springs, they recommend you have part of your house torn down in order to make the necessary repairs. However, with more than 27 years of experience making Sandy Springs foundation repairs, we know that 90% of the time this isn’t essential. We can often help you save thousands of dollars versus the typical contractor.
At JSA Specialists, we’ll give you our honest opinion about the approach that best works to repair your home. Most of the time, we recommend installing steel resistance piers into your home’s foundation. We recommend steel piers because they:
However, the trick really lies in experience. We have the experience to know the full load your foundation walls can bear. Many contractors get frightened when installing steel piers and don’t install them correctly, which can lead to more problems down the road.
However, you can count on us to do the job right the first time, saving you big money down the road.
How do you know if you need foundation repair in Sandy Springs?
You might notice an obvious crack in the part of your foundation that’s exposed above the ground, doors that stick, a chimney that clearly sags, caulk cracks around windows, unlevel doors and floors, or cracks in the mortar joints of your stair steps. There are many more signs than these, but these signs generally indicate you need settling foundation repair in Sandy Springs.
However, just because you notice these problems, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have a foundation problem. They could just be cosmetic blemishes.
What you can do when you encounter these situations is contact an experienced foundation repair contractor. He can tell you whether or not your problem is structurally related to your foundation. Inexperienced contractors might completely miss the fact that you have a foundation problem because they’ve never built or worked on one before. They may have degrees from local colleges, but those are not a substitute for experience.
At JSA Specialists, we’ve built and repaired foundations for more than 27 years and can tell you what steps are best to take. It pays to use the services of an experienced contractor who takes your best interests to heart.
The freeze/thaw cycle of the seasons can cause your foundation to crack or bow. In the Sandy Springs area, we don’t exactly have an intense freeze season, but the difference in temperature between the winter and spring seasons is enough to cause expansion and contraction in the ground. This movement can eventually cause foundation problems.
If you suspect foundation problems, it’s important to get them taken care of as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the more problems they cause. You can patch the visible problems up, but the structural issues will only come back later on, and you’ll either have to patch again or have the foundation repaired.
If you notice your door frame or windows aren’t level, or if you see an obvious crack in your foundation, these are important signs that your foundation could be settling or bowing. You may have to completely rebuild if you wait too long. At JSA Specialists, we have more than 27 years of experience diagnosing all types of foundation problems. If you need cost-effective cracked or sinking foundation repair in Sandy Springs, contact us at 404-680-1525.
