Our Foundation Solutions

This problem is caused from excess hydrostatic pressure in the soil surrounding your home. When the earth absorbs moisture after a heavy rain, it will swell up. All of this moisture will put a lot of force on your foundation walls. Ultimately, it will cause them to bend or bow into the basement environment. To fix the problem, we can install wall anchors, wall braces, and wall supports to provide the extra strength needed to keep the walls in place and stable.
Sometimes, a cracked foundation could be an indication that something more serious is going on with the structure, including settlement. Our team of experts will be able to determine the cause of the crack and get it dealt with so it doesn't cause more problems. Also, the crack will need to be filled and sealed so that it doesn't let moisture inside the home.
Typically speaking, a floor crack doesn't indicate that there is a bigger foundation issue at hand. However, it will still need to be filled in to prevent seepage up and through the floor due to a rising and falling water table around your foundation.
This problem is also caused from the soil around your home, and it's typically from poorly backfilled earth from the time when your home was being built. To fix the problem, we can install foundation piers next to the damaged wall(s). Installation can be done quickly, and in practically any kind of weather. Eventually, the piers will be able to support the weight of your home and keep it from sinking any further into the earth.
